Zimmerman Failed to Understand the Cultural Context in Which He was Being 'Whoop-Assed'

Prosecution witness Rachel Jeantel, speaking to Piers Morgan on CNN last night, explained that George Zimmerman had misunderstood the beating he was receiving from Trayvon Martin, and so had the jury in his trial. Zimmerman was not facing a potentially life-threatening "bashing," but simply a "whoop-ass." 

They don't understand, they understand, "Oh, he would just bash, or was kill." When somebody bash somebody, like, blood people, trust me, in the area I live, that's not bashing. That's just called "whoop-ass." You just got your ass whooped. That's what it is.

It was Zimmerman's own fault for not understanding the cultural context in which he was being attacked.

Morgan tried to save Jeantel's statement by asking her whether Martin would have "whooped ass" in self-defense. But the damage was done. For a split second, the camera caught a member of the audience reacting in shock, her jaw dropping at Jeantel's admission--and her apparent expectation that Zimmerman should have understood the supposed cultural practice of "whoop-ass," rather than acting to protect his own life.

Zimmerman failed to understand the hip hop culture - therefore he should be found guilty of 2nd degree murder.

Nice try.

And, the so-called "ass-whooping"  would have never happened if Zimmerman didnt follow and confront Trayvon.

Exactly.

What did Trayvon do wrong?

she told the truth, he got his ass whooped. That is plain as day english.  People now want to play stupid and act like they do not know what a good ol fashion beat down is:/  Zimmerman pussied out and shot the kid because the gun only made his balls think they were bigger.

nothing to most sane people, but to fox news and like minded people he was a thug,out looking for trouble, in the wrong place, looking to rob and steal someone with his tea(he was going to make into a big bad thug drink) his bag of skittles, because we all know that skittles is code for (he sells drugs) and maybe smoked some weed, which if anyone with half a brain knows does not make you violent, (why would you want to mess up your high??)
