During an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN tonight, Trayvon Martin‘s friend Rachel Jeantel explained to the bewildered host the difference between two n-words.

Morgan asked Jeantel if there was one word that she wished she had used in her testimony during the George Zimmerman trial.

According to, Jeantel answered "n*gga” (video below).

"Around 2000, they changed it around I think. They start spelling it n-*-g-g-a... That means a male, any kind of male. Chinese, can say 'n*gga.' They could say that," explained Jeantel.

“But n*gger, I’d advise you not to be by black people because they’re not going to have it like that. That's a racist word," stated Jeantel.

When Morgan asked Jeantel about the word “creepy-ass cracker,” which was used in her testimony, she explained how the word is actually spelled “cracka” and means “people who are acting like they’re police” (video below).

Jeantel later added: “Let’s be honest, racial. If Trayvon was white and he had a hoodie on, would that happen?”
