Nancy Grace Makes Racist Slur About Zimmerman

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

When did Nancy Grace turn into this scary looking, vicious she-devil?

Nancy GraceShortly before the George Zimmerman’s “not guilty” verdict was read last Saturday night, Nancy Grace –the HLN legal show host and former prosecutor– claimed that Zimmerman had called African-Americans ‘f—king coons’ while on the phone with police.

But as you can hear for yourself on this CNN audio, what Zimmerman said is either unintelligible or more like “f—king COLD” instead of the racist slur “coons.”

Not only is she a race-baiter, Nancy Grace is a f—king hypocrite.

At the same time as she’s pinning the noxious label of “racist” on the half-Hispanic Zimmerman, it turns out Grace herself is a racist bigot.

Mediaite reports that during a little-watched and little-noted broadcast a day before the jury verdict, on July 12, 2013, Grace used her own racist stereotype to refer to Zimmerman during her reaction to the closing statement from defense attorney Mark O’Mara.

In his final words to the members of the jury, O’Mara said: “‘I want you to really, really look at those instructions, apply them, and just say he [Zimmerman] acted in self-defense. Find him not guilty. Let him go back and get back to his life.”

At those last words, Grace went postal, barking:

“Give George Zimmerman back his life? Give Zimmerman back his life? He’s [been] out on bond, driving through Taco Bell every night, having a churro.”

What Grace said is akin to someone saying that Barack Obama, who’s half-black, spends every night “driving through KFC, having fried chicken” and watermelon.

Shame on you, Nancy Grace!

If celebrity chef Paula Deen was ousted by her TV network and lost millions in sponsorship contracts and book deals because she had used racial language (the N-word) more than 20 years ago, why is it O.K. for Nancy Grace to use a Hispanic ethnic slur against Zimmerman?
