Skip to comments.A Letter to Rachel Jeantel
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 meand 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.

Better not be in cursive. She won’t be able to read it...............
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.
The Onion, right?
Where’s the barf alert??
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.
That MF needs glasses. Because that ain’t what I see at all.
I see an inarticulate self-important deceptive sack of crap.
Eye of the beholder I guess.
Is the job of Secretary of Education taken yet?
He alone "healed the races" and that's what we've long needed. (off sarc)
Read the comments under the article. SMH
I am forever a whiner and a victim.
Writer doesn’t like Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth and whoever else she names? Cause this young’un doesn’t have anything to recommend her.
Proud of the dumbest woman on earth.
It deserves some sort of noteworthy praise....like a....like a.....like a Fullashitzer Prize.
She lies like a rug.’
That’s something to be proud of????????????????????
The writer’s bio explains a lot:
She was an intern for the Obomba Administration Ministry of Truth.
“I see Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Fannie Lou Hamer”
Yeah. Rachel ate them all!
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.
The race baiters have made an industry out of keeping blacks in chains and beholden to the dims....they don’t care about freedom or true equality all they want is the money in their wallet....nice job Jesse and Al
Cursive can be used as secret code for CWII since liberals can’t decipher it LOL
She’s even developed an expandable pouch in her throat to store that which is not immediately digestable.
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.
Rosa Parks Boulevard
Martin Luther King Parkway
Harriet Tubman School For Girls
Martin Luther King High School
(And what of George Washington Carver? If it hadn’t been for this scientist Jimmy Carter would have been just another pretty face.)
This isn’t a parody?
This is Obama’s Winning The Future...WTF!?
I saw a hateful, dumb, illiterate piece of trash.
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.
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.
Fat, Ugly, Stupid and on welfare is no way to go through life, beyotch. Stop sucking off my paycheck Obama voter!!
How about ‘Jeantel Reading Academy’?
That would explain why they don't understand this document written in cursive................
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.
I'm amazed she actually knew what the word "cursive" meant.
I’m sorry she was forced out of the water for so many hours.
Must have excruciating as you gasped for oxygenated water and longed for a trough of fresh kill as you struggled with reality and truth.
I’m not biting.
Oh, yeah, the Constitution was written in cursive, also.
No wonder they don’t recognize it.
Named “costly white”? Really? Gotta be national lampoon or the onion or the peoples cube right? No, really, right? Sounds like the abject failure of racist lbj’s great society. Turned out to be NOT so great. Billions more dollars down the drain for no gain.

This calls for a diarrhea alert!
Khadijah, That’s Retarded, Sir!
