juror b29a(PNS reporting from FLORIDA) In the latest shocking development in the George Zimmerman trial, Juror B29, the only person of color on the jury, is claiming she was coerced by the five Anglo female jurors into delivering a “Not Guilty” verdict.

Juror B29 (photo), a Latina woman, says the other jurors threatened to deport her and her family if she didn’t vote to acquit, even though she is an American citizen.

“They maid me do it,” she told reporters gathered at her modest home in Sanford.  “They try to convince me there was a reasonable doubt, and then they ask if my prices for housecleaning were reasonable.”

“Just because I am beautiful, you can not assume I am a maid,” said the woman. “Where do they get these stereotypes?”

She also said the other jurors spoke slowly to her and kept referring to her as “Consuela” and “The Brown Bomber” and snickered when they asked her if she had taken the jurors’ oath, which they called “the Lemon Pledge.”

“I thought being on a jury was going to be like Twelve Angry Men, but it was more like five crazy beeches,” said B29.

B29 also said she was confused as to why the other jurors never discussed race and referred to Zimmerman as “that nice German boy” right up to the end of the trial.

“I think the race blindness was caused by bath salts or something,” said B29.

B29 also believes if the other jurors accepted that Zimmerman was Latino, they would have found him guilty “in a Tallahassee minute.”

Juror B29’s statement comes on the heels of some batshit comments by another Juror, B37, who blamed Trayvon Martin for his own death and expressed sympathy for Zimmerman.

In her statement, Juror B29 also said that, even though she was the only person of color on the jury, George Zimmerman was indeed tried by a jury of his peers.

“They had crazy eyes, and they did not like the black people,” she said.
