Winners of the Trayvon Martin Sweepstakes Bonanza
Flopping Aces ^ | 07-19-13 | DrJohn

Trayvon Martin's death is generally regarded as a tragedy, but for some it has proven to be a jackpot. The winners: Jasmine Rand, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, Rachel Jeantel, Ryan Julison, Barack Obama and Al Sharpton.

7. Jasmine Rand Jasmine Rand is an associate at the law firm of Parks and Crump. Presumably she was hired for her legal talents.


She moved from Whoareyouville to making the grand talking head rounds on TV. As a show of, er, solidarity, she donned a hoodie for an interview with Jake Tapper.

She was flying high. Unfortunately for Rand, she then made an appearance on Greta Susteren's show and Greta proceeded to hand Rand her head. Bill Jacobson then blasted her assertions about social engineering and eviscerated her arguments about pre-emption.

But given all the face time she's accumulated on TV, she still comes out a winner.

6. Jesse Jackson


Trayvon Martin's death rescued Jackson from the garbage heap of history and put Jackson yet again into another race monger recycling program. Jackson called for calm proceeding the verdict in the Zimmerman trial but then reverted back to the Jesse we all know and love afterwards. He decided that he does not accept the verdict and has repeatedly referred to Zimmerman as a "murderer." After correcting another guest who called Zimmerman a murderer, Chris Hayes decided he would not be "All In" with Jackson and simply went limp. Only after the verdict did not go as Jackson wished did Jackson opine that the deck was stacked with regards to the jury.

"There was no man on the jury — Trayvon was a black boy — there was no man, no black on the jury. So at least the idea of jury of your peers was a stretch all the while."

But as noted, it's the accused who gets a jury of his peers, not the victim. Today Jackson called Florida "an apartheid state." Smells like a shakedown in the works.

If I could ask Jackson a question, it would be

"How is Crystal Mangum's college education proceeding?"

Jackson promised to pay for Mangum's college education, even it was proved that she lied.

And lie she did. Besides, it wasn't really going to be Jesse's money. It would come from Rainbow/PUSH. And probably Coca Cola and Heublein.

5. Eric Holder

Eric Holder

Holder used Trayvon Martin's death to further his agenda of abolishing gun ownership for law abiding citizens. He railed against Florida's "Stand your ground" law despite the fact that the Zimmerman defense never used it.

And talk about irony. It turns out that Florida's Stand Your Ground laws disproportionately favor black people.

And hang on, the we're not done ironying. In his speech to the NAACP Holder said

"We must stand our ground to ensure that our laws reduce violence and take a hard look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent,"

During the Zimmerman trial 61 people were murdered in Chicago, seven were under 18 years old.

Holder let it be known that the DOJ is conducting an investigation into whether Trayvon Martin's civil rights were violated despite the fact the the FBI concluded that Zimmerman was no racist.

In his political persecution and political prosecution of Zimmerman, Holder apparently has decided that Zimmerman is guilty and all he need now is proof so the DOJ has created an email tipline to troll for anyone who wants to say something ill of George Zimmerman. They will hunt George Zimmerman down and convict him of something, even if it's loitering.

And that will make Holder a winner- to some, anyway.

4. Rachel Jeantel

Rachel Jeantel was a witness for the prosecution in the Zimmerman trial but she proved to be a gift for the defense. She is a 19 year old self-described "3.0" student who can't read cursive and who lied repeatedly under oath because her deposition "didn't mean nothing to me."

Subsequent to her testimony, Jeantel admitted that she told Trayvon Martin to run because she thought George Zimmerman could be a gay rapist and that she believes Martin threw the first punch in the altercation.

Jeantel also took the opportunity to educate America about the proper use of the words "ni**a", "ni**er" and "creepy ass cracka." About the first two:

Jeantel explained to Morgan that “the whole world say it’s a racist word” but the version of the word that she testified Martin had used in reference to Zimmerman, spelled “n-i-g-g-a” doesn’t mean what most people think it means. It doesn’t mean a “black male” as Morgan assumed, she said, but rather any kind of man, including “Chinese” for example. Morgan helpfully pointed out that that’s the version rappers use in their music.

“But nigger,” Jeantel said, stressing the “-er.,” is a “racist word.” She said “I’d advise you not to be by black people” when you say that word, Jeantel explained, “because they’re not going to have it like that.” And this is not just in her community as Morgan posited but in the entire “generation.”

She said that "creepy ass cracka" was not a racial term:

RACHEL JEANTEL, FRIEND OF TRAYVON: Well, the jury, they see their facts. My thoughts of the jury, they old, that’s old school people. We in a new school, our generation, my generation. So –

PIERS MORGAN: Let’s talk about ‘creepy ass cracka.’ People have said that that is a phrase used by black people, cracka, to describe a white person. Is that true?

JEANTEL: No! Like I said –

MORGAN: How do you spell it, first of all?

JEANTEL: Cracka.

MORGAN: There’s no ‘e-r,’ right?

JEANTEL: No, it’s an ‘a’ at the end.

MORGAN: C-r-a-c-k-a.

JEANTEL: Yeah. And that’s a person who act like they’re a police [officer], who, like a security guard who acting like — that’s what I said to them. Trayvon said creepy ass cracka.

MORGAN: It means he thought it was a police or a security guard?

JEANTEL: Yeah, he acting like the police. And then he keep telling me that the man is still watching him. So, if it was a security guard or a policeman, they would come up to Trayvon and say, ‘Do you have a problem? Do you need help?’ You know, like normal people.

Except when it is, as she testified in court:

PROSECUTOR: Is that to mean, you mean like a white individual?

JEANTEL: Yes, Caucasian.

Following this awakening, Rush Limbaugh felt empowered to use the term "ni**a", for which he was immediately blasted for being a racist by the left.

Still, Jeantel has seen a sartorial evolution since the trial:

And liberal talk show host Tom Joyner has offered Jeantel a paid education at "historically black college" of her choice.

The school year just ended a few weeks ago. She WILL BE a senior in high school, in the fall. She will be 20 years old when she graduates.

Of course, unless she gets tutoring, she won't be able to read cursive, when she graduates.
BUT...she will have graduated.
Graduation. What an accomplishment.

The coverage of this trial did change my mind on one thing. No matter what the cost, the taxpayers should provide free birth control for Rachel Jeantel forever.

This is exactly why the liberals are for free contraception and free abortion on demand. But they’ll never admit it and the republicans will never accuse them of it.
