Juror B37 Speaks, Occupy The Microphone discusses


Today we will be discussing Juror #b37's interview with Anderson Cooper of CNN, listening and analyzing excerpts.

Daisy asks, "Why do obviously racist white people think they are not racist?” What is the psychology of the denial of racism and race matters? What has changed since the days of the civil rights movement in which racism was openly acknowledged and "worked on"?

Daisy believes today that racism is still present but instead of acknowledged, it is openly denied. This denial leads to violent and irrational outcomes, like the verdict in the Zimmerman trial.

We will also discuss one comment by someone who watched the interview and said "Trayvon Martin and Rachel Jeantel were like Martians to that juror. When Juror B37 said Rachel was not credible, she meant that she had never met people like that before."

She even admitted she could not understand her, yet never asked for clarifications, as she could have.

Juror B37 was planning to write a book but now that book deal has been cancelled due to the outrage of social activist using social media.
