Rachel Jeantel, the star witness for the prosecution in the Trayvon Martin murder trial, testified Wednesday and Thursday. Her behavior throughout the two days was often inconsistent, dismissive and rude though she was somewhat bearable on Thursday. On Thursday she rolled her eyes less at the defense attorney and added the word “Sir” to most of her answers, though her tone was frequently dripping with sarcasm. We are not supposed to criticize her, however, for fear of being called racists.
The left-wing media has been spinning the Zimmerman murder trial against Zimmerman. They don’t care if he is guilty or not. Ironically, they are not doing the same to Aaron Hernandez. Some are even bemoaning the loss of Hernandez’ talent and pitying him.
CBS presented Jeantel, the “star witness” as a consistent witness who stuck with her story when in fact her story on several issues changed several times and she admitted to lying under oath.
The left-wing has turned her horrendously poor attitude into an insult against white people. One online journal called global grind said that the reason white people are making negative comments about Jeantel is because they don’t understand her culture and they are immersed in their own feelings of white privilege.
From Global Grind:
She’s [Rachel Jeantel] 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.
If you think Rachel is hard and you were turned off by her testimony, you are racist and think you’re better because you’re white.
The truth that the apologists are trying to hide is that Jeantel is a target because she lied and she was nasty.
Global Grind believes any contempt for Jeantel is because we the observers have “shallow reasons.” We don’t understand the terrible turmoil she is in and the awful set of circumstances she has faced.
Never mind that Jeantel didn’t even want to testify.
We are supposed to be understanding towards Jeantel, forgive her the lies she told, and only believe the charges she lodged against Zimmerman.
Look, this is a murder trial. Zimmerman is fighting for his life and he might be completely innocent. Jeantel is not the important person here. The only thing that is important about Jeantel is her testimony as is, understood from the perspective of the rule of law, not from our analysis of her culture and her emotions.
No one should have a horse in this race and it must be noted that the media is putting Zimmerman on trial and, without facts, they are hanging him. The media went after Zimmerman from the onset because they thought he was white and because they wanted to see the abolishment of the Stand Your Ground law.
Now the media refers to him as a white Hispanic and they are giving him the same treatment they wanted to give a white shooter.
