Skip to comments.Why Black People Understand Rachel Jeantel

If ever I thought myself objective and unbiased, the George Zimmerman trial is definitely not that moment.
So let's cut to the chase. Any attorney, jury member, judge or white person in that courtroom is not going to understand Rachel Jeantel. And I don't expect them to.
In fact, I certainly, like my fellow writer Rachel Samara, understand why white people wouldn't like Rachel.
She's 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.
Let's for one second try to understand why Rachel is "angry" (read emotional), "hood" (read blunt), and "unintelligent" (read multilingual).
The thing is, what white people see in Rachel has little to do about her own issues, and more to say about the America that white people are blind to. Let's take her testimony on not calling the police, for example.

All we care about is if she is honest, or a liar.
We have the answer to that question and you don't like it, which is why you are throwing the race card when it is totally irrelevant.
I guess the fact that she is untruthful is immaterial, eh?
This desperation of the libs just shows they realize how bad this witness crashed and burned yesterday. The only reason people won’t like this witness is because she was exposed as a liar and perjurer. Period.
Oh, f you Christina. Y’all have gone to that well ten million times too often.
“I guess the fact that she is untruthful is immaterial, eh?”
Yep, this article is all about making an excuse for her and taking a couple of jabs at creepy crackers along the way.
"White privilege" paid for that courtroom and those laws with their tax dollars.
What she is, is ignorant and she would be if she was white green or purple........
Yeah right - it's her 'color'... and she's 'hard' - whatever the hell that means. Seems Christina Coleman thinks white people are unable to judge character or truthfulness... we're all stupid. Not that I'm accusing Christina of profiling all whites.../s
I couldn’t understand Christina’s bizarre point of view about someone repeatedly lying under oath but figured it was the result of white guilt. Of course, you are right, she’s throwing down the race card when it is totally irrelevant.
How pathetic! Get up off your knees...White self hatred is how our nation finds itself in it's current situation.
This is a mess. Not until Rev Wright did I start to understand how truly great the divide is between us. The bitter anger on both sides is so destructive it’s amazing we’ve come as far as we have.
Did Rachel receive a high school diploma? I’d really like to know.
Again, someone tell me shes not breeding
And your assumptions about why we view Rachel as we do make YOU feel like you are better, somehow, too, Christina...
But, after all, isn't that the whole point of being a "liberal"? So you can assert your self defined superiority?
Nope, no racism there, not a bit........
Good grief, people like this are clueless.
The first day she testified she was hostile and rude.
The second day she was coached and just kept mumbling “yes, sir” but repeatedly exposed her own lies.
So any way you look at it she’s a LIAR.
