Trayvon Martin’s stepmom Alicia Stanley is no longer standing on the sidelines. The women who helped raise the Martin for 14 years sat down for man interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday night, and she said she doesn’t think George Zimmerman shot her stepson because he was black.
“I really don’t think it was Zimmerman don’t like black people, or he picked him out because he was black,” she said. “Did he profile him with the hoodie and stuff like that as this thug, whatever, walking, in Zimmerman’s mind? Yes, but to say that he targeted him because he was black? No, I don’t think so.”
She went on to say that her family doesn’t use racial slurs like “white a** cracker,” which star witness Rachel Jeantel said Trayvon used to describe Zimmerman during their phone call.
“Kids gonna be kids,” she said. “We didn’t teach that kind of language in our home.”
She also admitted that see doesn’t like to watch the trial. “To see and hear the things that led to his death. It’s hard for me. I don’t care to hear that,” she revealed.
If Zimmerman is not found guilty of killing the 17-year-old, Stanley said she would be heartbroken.
“It’s going to be heartbreaking, because I truly believe that Zimmerman killed my son,” she said. “God will take care of all of that. I put it in God’s hands.”
