First your honor for the record neither I nor anyone else knows what happened between Zimmerman and Martin.

That does not stop this Typical Liberal self-loathing white woman from acting as if she does. I’ll Highlight a few of her statements . If Zimmerman is acquitted and if there is violence it will be because of people like her. Words have meaning and consequences.  She is also dealing with a man’s (Zimmerman) life. To use the words she does is….the height of irresponsibility. Hell they are down right lies. 

Rachel Jeantel

Rachel Jeantel

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. But let’s not forget why she’s actually on the stand in George Zimmerman‘s second degree murder trial. Rachel was the last person to speak to a living, breathing Trayvon Martin. The guilt, shame and sorrow she must feel is something most of us will never be able to comprehend. You could hear it in her voice, see it in her jittery body language. She is feeling the wrath of this highly publicized case.

Rachel was thrown head first into this murder story, unwillingly. And although she had repeatedly said she did not want to be a witness, did not even want to believe she was the last person Trayvon spoke to, Rachel took the stand for all the right reasons. She was asked to by the family of her deceased friend and feeling part of the burden for his death, she wanted to help.

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.

But if the lawyers, and especially the jurors, were really listening, they would see that although she comes off aggressive, Rachel was consistent. Yes, the defense proved she had lied in the past, but she didn’t deny it. On the contrary. She was very honest about it, and even led us to sympathize with her reasoning for it – she did not want to see Trayvon’s body, she did not want to face Trayvon’s mother and she wanted to wipe her hands of the situation because of the emotion and trauma. She was the last person Trayvon spoke to and she wanted everyone to understand what that means. This is in no way easy for her.

Rachel is the prosecution’s key witness, but I am going to call her the misunderstood witness. She holds vital information that both the defense and prosecution need, but these middle-aged white men questioning her do not get it. Sadly both the prosecution and the defense [but more so the defense] have an extreme disconnect from her reality, like I said. The constant text messaging between her and Trayvon is normal for two high school kids who may like each other, the nonchalant use of racial slurs like “cracka” and “n*gga” are 

( If “cracka and n*gga” are not racist, just slang. Why did writer not use nigga)

slang (as Rachel put it) and that doesn’t mean it comes from a racist place.

Trayvon was just 17, his life consisted of text messaging, high school, PS3, girls and not much else. He had a lot of growing up to do, a lot of experiences to take in, so much more to learn, but sadly, he will never get a chance to do any of those things.

Rachel on the other hand will get to, but with her immaturity displayed on the stand for the whole world to see, she quickly became a joke. Maybe we were picturing Trayvon’s alleged girlfriend to be a bit different, but nevertheless, Rachel still is the last person, aside from George Zimmerman, that Trayvon had any contact with while he was alive on this earth. Rachel’s mumbling, hostility and that reference to the show First 48, among other things, threw us for a loophole, but let’s remember, she is just a teen. This is what she knows. This is far from a Lifetime movie, this is her life. In the flesh, but still on our TVs.

I cried when she described the feeling of realizing she was the last person Trayvon spoke to, cringed at her blatant honesty, laughed when she spoke back to the attorneys and even had to turn my volume down throughout different phases of her testimony because of sheer discomfort.

Rachel was authentic, nervous and extremely herself. She did, after all, hear her friend, a minor, get killed in cold blood.

Excuse the hell out of me, but if memory serves the testimony was she was talking to him and the phone went CLICK!!!!!

She heard nothing and the writer has just lied thru her teeth.

And her involvement, from what we can tell, became dragged out beyond anything she ever wanted.

Her hostility is making more sense now.

Rachel’s collision with Zimmerman’s attorney Don West was uncomfortable to watch. They didn’t get each other. I even thought at one point they were going to call in some type of translator. Yes, she mumbled, but the amount of times she was asked to repeat herself, speak up and slow down proved that they were indeed speaking different languages. But let’s be honest. Rachel Jeantel’s attitude is exactly what I would expect from someone from the hood who has no media training and who is fully entrenched in a hostile environment.

There’s nothing wrong with it.

A few different times while watching this trial I’ve gotten caught up in the entertainment of it all, like a movie I don’t want to miss the ending to. But this isn’t a movie, and although Don West did kick off his opening argument with a “Knock-Knock” joke, it’s not meant to be entertainment. And definitely not funny.

This is truly a life and death situation. Rachel was on the phone with Trayvon moments before he got murdered while walking home from a 7-11, back to “his Daddy’s house,” as Rachel so eloquently put it. Aside from George Zimmerman, Rachel was Trayvon’s last communication on this earth.

Can Rachel help prove that Trayvon was attacked by George Zimmerman? What are your thoughts? Tweet with me. @RachelSamara

I made the mistake of reading comments yesterday and even got into a few brawls. It’s frightening how stupid and racist those people are. There are about 3,000 comments…scary.

I tried to find contact info for this nitwit so I could blast her. All I found was twitter acct, I don’t twitter.. :LOL:      ~Steve~

  1. “someone from the hood who has no media training”…. Please!!! This girl has been being schooled and groomed, ’round the clock, since the moment she was identified as a ‘witness’

  2. Such Hate! Zimmerman was proclaimed guilty before the evidence because of his skin color!

    My Perspective Regarding the Evidence:

    1. Zimmerman worked free to keep his neighborhood safe from anymore break-ins! When he saw Martin out in the rain, on the phone, in a black hoodie, he didn’t shoot him…he called 911. He did the right thing! (Still screams suspicious, because when raining, most people are in and not out and on the phone).
    2. Martin or Jeantel didn’t call 911 for help and protection from follower. Neither did the right thing for safety!
    3. Jeantel told Martin to run and she said, “I didn’t go to funeral because I felt guilty!” Run and guilty implies responsible for bad behavior!
    4. Jeantel said, I was on the phone with Martin and he said, “a creapy ass cracker is following me.” A few seconds later he said, “oh shit that nigger’s behind me!” Martin’s comments = racial!
    5. 911 dispatcher ask Zimmerman, what color is the guy and he said, I THINK he’s black! Zimmerman’s comment = not racial!
    6. Fight witnesses testified “a person in dark clothing was on top of a person with lighter complexion wearing red or white clothing, during the tussle, the teen appeared to execute a mixed-martial arts maneuver known as ground and pound. Martin was wearing a black hoodie and clothing had stains on knee! Zimmerman was wearing red and clothes had stains on back.
    7. Witness heard one or two calls for help and thought the words came from Zimmerman! Wouldn’t the one on bottom would call for help!
    8. Zimmerman had head, nose and face injuries! Zimmerman feared being beaten to death and didn’t shoot before the beating!

    Zimmerman didn’t commit murder or manslaughter! He called 911, he screamed for help and no help was rendered. He shot after, not before, he was beaten to near death!

    Anyone in the same position he was in would have done the exact same thing. Stop allowing race and hate to blind and deafen you!

    • You have the NBC version of # 5. What the dispatcher asked was (paraphrased) ” Is he White, Asian, African American or Hispanic?” NBC edited out all of that but left in Zimmerman saying “I think he’s black”

  3. This is NOT a matter of black white or other!! It is a matter of Assault, Travon who was being FALLOWED NOT TOUCHED , attacked and in Zimmerman’s eyes trying to kill him by bashing his head into the concrete. If as the prosecution claims that Zimmerman wanted to kill him why then did he only shoot after getting his head bashed into the concrete.

  4. A “failure to understand”… um, maybe not if she spoke English.

    Bill Cosby’s “Poundcake Speech” had it right (1:30): “I can’t even talk the way these people talk– ‘Why you ain’t where you is, go, what… ‘ … Everybody know it’s important to speak English, except these knuckleheads. You can’t land a plane with ‘Why you ain’t, where you at.’ You can’t be a doctor with thT kind of crap coming out of your mouth.”

  5. Is she supposed to be a sympathy witness? Was she the reason Martin and Zimmerman were fighting? Does her testimony have bearing on the cause, the affect, or what?

    • Hey, it worked in “Precious”… too bad Jeantel wasn’t created by white liberal scriptwriters in Hollywood (white liberal prosecutors in Florida watch too many movies or think the jury does, clearly).

      • R.Z. shouldn’t even be on trial. Martin was a hoodlum. He beat up a bus driver and bragged about it. The driver was afraid to press charges. He was kicked out of school for dealing illegal drugs. He had gang tatoos and affilations. He was on his way to be a career criminal. And then he bit off more than he could chew. Maybe he didn’t deserve to die. But it sure looked like sooner or later he was going to end up being a liability to scociety. The MSM is playing this into race hate and it’s no such thing. It is crime hate.

  6. Thanks for posting this, Steve! Great comments by all!

  7. Thanks, it makes me furious.

    • I might be wrong, but it seems like race relations have gotten worse since O has been in office. This whole trial is like one big psy-op to increase the wedge between the races.

  8. Why is a 19 year old a JR in high school? Isn’t it illegal for her to “like” him (Trayvon)?

  9. The Cosby audio sums it up perfectly. There are 4th and 5th generation welfare families of all races who do not bother with speaking normal English, nor seek an education because the majority of them have not been able to escape the ” welfare mentality ” endemic in the poorer neighborhoods. Why pursue an education when you are taught by example that the government will pay your freight? .

    Cosby has it right, the parental supervision and guidance or lack thereof in our formative years makes us who we are. The democrat party will never address this issue lest they lose their electorate base through education. It is hard to keep even willing slaves on the plantation once they breath the air of freedom that self respect and a good work ethic bring.

  10. “Trayvon was just 17, his life consisted of text messaging, high school, PS3, girls and not much else”
    Actually Trayvon’s life consisted of getting high on pot, maybe other drugs, stealing, fighting, and trying to be a gangbanger. He was no innocent little boy.
    I also think Rachel’s hesitance to testify was because she knew Treyvon was aggressive. It’s what the parents wanted to hear and a way to get at white people.

  11. Over the last few days I’ve seen countless stories in the state run media rushing to this girl’s defense, with every excuse from her being a victim of a racist white society, to white racists who hate O taking out their vengeance on this girl. As Shakespeare put it: the woman doth protest too much.
