On this link. I believe you can hear him use a racial slur. It was pointed out in another thread. What I'd like to do here is post the link and where the slur can be heard and see what others hear the first time they hear it. I won't say what the slur is, but it's breaking on MSNBC and elsewhere and will be discussed throughout the day I'm sure.

I'd call this BREAKING.

Here is the link - the point in the recording in question is between 2.21 and 2.23 mins.

The 911 Call

Kestral also isolated the clip here:

911 Clip - Kestral9000

If you can hear - what I can hear it changes things with this murder.

Mr. Zimmerman's father is out with a plea that his son is not bigoted and has black friends and family and yadda yadda. However a woman was just on CNN, a Florida attorney and she said many calls to 911 that Zimmerman made he reported only blacks as "suspicious".

MSNBC has a crawler saying a racial slur may have been used during call.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
