Was Zimmerman's jury motivated by race?

Rachel Jeantel, The prosecution's star witness, who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin moments before he was shot and killed by Zimmerman - told Piers Morgan – she wasn't surprised by the verdict.

Piers Morgan: The jury - the juror tonight made it clear that the jury never really discussed race as being a motivating factor.

Rachel Jeantel: I imagine, they're white. Well, one Hispanic lady. She's stuck in the middle.

Piers Morgan: Five white women on the jury and one Hispanic lady.

Rachel Jeantel: Yes. I had a feeling it was going to be not guilty so.

OutFront tonight: ┬áRadio Show Host Stephanie Miller, Comedian Dean Obeidallah and Saphia Songhai – a filmmaker and 2008 miss black Massachusetts-USA.
