CNN's Race Relations and Linguistics Consultant Rachel Jeantel


"Jeantel explained to Morgan that “the whole world say it’s a racist word” but the version of the word that she testified Martin had used in reference to Zimmerman, spelled “n-i-g-g-a” doesn’t mean what most people think it means. It doesn’t mean a “black male” as Morgan assumed, she said, but rather any kind of man, including “Chinese” for example."

Okay, so now we know it's appropriate to refer to black people as nigga, but not nigger.

When you get out of the hospital (assuming you survive), give Jeantel a call, and ask; whut up wit dat?
