Leftists are circling the wagons around the colossal jewel of mumbling ignorance that is the 19-year-old senior-to-be Rachel Jeantel after she was exposed as a perjuring imbecile in her testimony at the George Zimmerman trial these last two days.
The young woman has been shown to all of America as a high-profile example of the utter failure Miami’s apparently screwed up educational system and dysfunctional ghetto community. She can’t speak proper English to save her life and was discovered to be functionally illiterate yesterday as her testimony concerning the letter she wrote to Trayvon Martin’s mother was exposed as an utter fabrication as she was unable to read the very letter she allegedly penned.
These two articles from the Global Grind that sort of sum-up the circling of the wagons around Jeantel, offering up excuses and spinning her miserable appearance into something noble and worthy of emulation.
Why Black People Understand Rachel Jeantel by Christina Coleman
Posted 15 hours 58 min ago by Christina Coleman for Global Grind
If ever I thought myself objective and unbiased, the George Zimmerman trial is definitely not that moment.
So let’s cut to the chase. Any attorney, jury member, judge or white person in that courtroom is not going to understand Rachel Jeantel. And I don’t expect them to.
…She’s hard. She’s black. And your assumptions about her background and lack of education make you feel like you are better, somehow. That her testimony, no matter how powerful and impactful it may be to this trial, is implausible. Weak, maybe? Let’s impeach her.
But maybe the reason white people don’t understand Rachel Jeantel has something more to do with white privilege then, what they would call, Rachel’s capricious nature.
Let’s for one second try to understand why Rachel is “angry” (read emotional), “hood” (read blunt), and “unintelligent” (read multilingual).
Everyday Americans don’t understand Rachel because of white privilege?
Honey, it’s not “White Privilege”, it’s people like Rachel Jeantel who, along with many of her fellow “community” members who eschew education, which effectively hobbles them for their entire lives. These same people embrace government assistance as though it’s a civil right they are entitled to, along with out-of-wedlock babies. The women in that “community” see having a baby, not graduation from high school or college, as a right-of-passage into adulthood.
Anytime there is a setback in their lives, they blame racism and bigotry instead of looking in the mirror at the serial train-wreck of poor choices they have made in their pathetic lives.
Rachel, honey, maybe someone doesn’t want to hire you because you’re an illiterate, dope-smoking, and crude-talking liar who vomits out her entire life on social media as though anyone cares?
Calling her multilingual and trying to say English wasn’t her first language? Unless you count “texting” or “ebonics” as languages, this woman is not multilingual. She’s ignorant – a product of the dysfunctional ghetto community and social promotion in failed public schools.
What White People Don’t Understand About Rachel Jeantel
Posted June 26, 2013 by Rachel Samara for Global Grind
A predominantly white jury is not going to like Rachel Jeantel. Let’s just be real here.
The 19-year-old Miami native is an easy target for obvious, yet shallow reasons. …
Rachel was raw, emotional, aggressive and hostile, and she was unapologetically herself.
And if the 5 white jurors (excluding the 1 Latina) are like most white people I know, they are unfortunately not going to like Rachel. They won’t understand her, especially not her defensive nature, and this will unfortunately work against her. Even though it shouldn’t.
I can imagine George Zimmerman’s defense is just hoping some of those 5 white jurors have some prejudices (as most people do), or hell, are even racist, because if they are, their tactic to make Rachel out to be less intelligent, rather than less credible than she actually is, might actually work.
Less intelligent and more confused.
Less intelligent because of the “language barrier” and more confused because of the lawyers’ failure to understand who Rachel is, where she comes from, what kind of life she lives.
It seems the middle-aged white men on both sides of this case are totally unaware of what Rachel’s life is like – a 19-year-old high school student of Haitian descent who knows nothing more than the few block radius she has grown up in. The cultural differences here are exponential.
Honestly, Rachel may indeed be “raw, emotional, aggressive and hostile,” but other words one might fairly use to describe her would include illiterate, crude, shallow, perjury-prone and insolent.
Exhibit #1: On her Facebook page, the intro line is: ‘My mama n daddy do all the work I just spend it.’ Somehow I doubt truer words have ever been spoken by this young woman.
Americans don’t need to “understand” Rachel Jeantel any more than we need to “understand” Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan before we can make an informed decision about whether or not someone is likeable, articulate, intelligent, decent or just an oxygen thief or worse.
Some people are just scumbags that contribute nothing but a burden upon society.
I suspect Rachel Jeantel had dreams of getting rich writing a book about her role in the George Zimmerman trial. I suspect at least a couple of the other peripheral witnesses so far have similar dreams. Part of Rachel’s anger may be her frustration at knowing that her book deal is slipping through her fingers as her fairy-tale testimony is impeached for what it is.
And the Left is left with making excuses for Rachel Jeantel’s high-profile exhibition of the sad failure of Rachel’s parents, the ghetto community, and Miami’s educational system to raise and educate a productive citizen.
They are the “low-information” voters. And many of these folks are also opposed to your right to own a gun to defend yourself and your family from violent attackers like Trayvon Martin because, in part, of what happened to Trayvon Martin.
