“I’m a teenager,” Jeantel told Sharpton. “Don — how did a jury think of African-American teenager? They supposed to be cussing. I didn’t even curse to Don.”

“I didn’t show him a lot of respect,” she conceded, “because he was acting childish. He was asking re – ridiculous questions.”

“But I kept my ground,” Jeantel declared. “I stand strong. I never cursed.”
