A Letter to Rachel Jeantel
Roleboot.org ^ | June 27, 2013 | Khadijah Costley White

Posted on 06/28/2013 9:47:27 AM PDT by Enchante

I just want you to know: I am so proud of you. In you I see a fierce resistance that reminds me of ancestors past. Each time you open your mouth, look down, clench your cheeks in a fresh wave of pain, I see Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Fannie Lou Hamer joining their spirits and bonding their strength to yours. I see a survivor, a woman who has miraculously kept her mind and nurtured her sanity enough that she can sit, for hours, and recount such horror. You have a brilliance that flares out, only to be quickly veiled by a glance down or a quiet stare. Past your soul-wrenching pain and your child-like bravado, I see hope and possibility, a small green tendril creeping out of a concrete playground. I see YOU.

I hold you in me—and there are many, many others, with our arms, minds, and hearts holding you right alongside me. I hope you feel it. I hope you know it.

This is what we're dealing with here, the nutty racial obsessions of people who can't let mundane matters like facts and reality interfere with politically correct fantasies!

This article is by a Rutgers University prof. of “media studies” — this is the kind of nonsense purveyed at taxpayer expense by these sorts of academics.

Please tell me that letter was made up.

If not, please tell me when we’re going to ship the writer of that drivel to the sun.

With no return address on the carton.

Such stupidity requires scientific notation to adequately express the magnitude of cretin-ness.

That ain’t racial...that’s the truuuuuuuth.

Yes, in great moments such as, "That's retarded, sir."

Brilliant.

Gosh, I'm glad we finally elected America's first Black President.

Harriett Tubman would be rolling over in her grave if she saw the example of racism that Jeantel displayed on the witness stand (and in her everyday life).

I don’t think Harriett Tubman risked her life so that Jeantel would someday be able to exhibit the kind of character she displayed in that courtroom.

I’m so sorry that people are judging you, fixated more on your beautiful brown skin

Black authors like the one from this article always accuse everyone else of focusing on skin color. In reality, it's black people that are most focused on skin color and they are projecting their obsession.

If Jeantel were white, she'd been admonished by the judge for improper and disrespectful courtroom behavior. She said 'say what?' a few times.. She said "I'm not coming back" as if to announce she was controlling the judge, and even made faces behind the defense attorney's back as he walked by her. Her CONTINUING TO MUMBLE even though asked to speak up is something no white witness would be allowed to get away with. Her constant shaking her head in disgust would've gotten any other witness kicked out of the courtroom. She was openly hostile, with a 'permanent grudge against whitey'.. You know, the kind of friend we would expect Trayvon to have.

I wonder if this idiot knows this woman is a child of two immigrants? If she wants to blame whitey, look to Spain & France for this whitey.

Re: I see Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Fannie Lou Hamer.

I am not familiar with Fannie Lou Hamer, but Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman are real heroines. They actually did something to help others and fought against enslavement of their people and actual hatred and bigotry. Jeantel is not in that category. It seems to me that this professor is attempting to paint Jeantel as a heroine. It minimizes what Tubman and Truth did with their lives if a girl who takes drugs, parties a lot, lies, and has a foul mouth as well as associates with a juvenile delinquent can be considered in their class simply because she was on the phone with Martin when he died.

Yes, this attitude is endemic. It’s whitey’s fault she’s fat, she can’t write or read, she’s still in HS, she an underaged drinker and admits to smoking pot and has lied on the stand or to the police. Feel bad for her because she’s a victim of low expectations and people that surround her perpetuate the victim mentality and encourage the sloth and avarice that has become a lifestyle.

I understand that the author is in 'defend black person at all costs' mode, but even by those standards the above discription of Rachel Jeantel is hilarious.
