(Okay, they're having trouble hearing you, so take your time)
And then he said [bleep]
(And he's still following him?)
Rachel Jeantel testified that Trayvon Martin told her that a “creepy ass cracka” (otherwise known as George Zimmerman) was following him. This signified a seminal moment in the trial as the defense was able to bring up the point that it wasn’t Zimmerman who first brought race into the trial, but it was, in fact, Trayvon Martin. This moment also seemed to exemplify a divide between Black and White America. Ms. Jeantel herself explained that in her understanding of the slang “creepy ass cracka” was not a racial slur. A majority of African Americans seemed to understand her statements while many Caucasian Americans wholeheartedly disagreed with the idea that cracka was not a racial slur. This prompted CNN to run a soon to be infamous debate on which racial epithet was worse.
In the context of this outro these statements seem to exemplify a divide between White America and Rick Ross himself. They will never be able to understand his life in this way. They will never be able to wrap their heads around the fact that he keeps two pistols in the car, that he still supports his brother in prison, and they will never see his point of view on the Trayvon situation. It can also represent the media’s seemingly tireless pursuit of slandering Ross' name (whether it be because of the date rape line or many other controversies involving him). In this way, by the way the media portrays him or the ways White America might see him, Rick Ross compares himself to Trayvon. A misunderstood African American who has already been found guilty.
