Dear Juror B37: Spanish People Are From Spain

Race didn’t play into the Zimmerman verdict? Not at all? Race and perceptions of it didn’t even cross the jurors’ mind? Right, this was never about race.

Listen to Juror B37 last night on CNN. Memo: Spanish people are from Spain. There is a general rule that anyone who refers to U.S. Latinos as Spanish really has no clue. Like Juror B37. By the way, the juror came to her senses after this afternoon and passed on any thoughts of a book deal.

ANDERSON COOPER: So you don’t think race played a role in this case?
JUROR B37: I don’t think it did. I think that if there was another person, Spanish, white, Asian… If they came in the same situation where Trayvon was, I think George would have reacted the exact same way.

Yes, if some guy from Madrid was in the neighborhood, the same thing would have happened. Right. Hit it, Gollum.
