Posted on 07/16/2013 9:10:55 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Radio personality Tom Joyner has offered Rachel Jeantel, the friend of Trayvon Martin who spoke to him shortly before he died, a full scholarship to any Historically Black College or University she chooses. The website Joyner founded, BlackAmericaWeb.com, confirmed the news. Jeantel spoke to Joyner on his radio show Tuesday morning.
He said to her: "If you want to graduate from high school, and go to an HBCU, even if its not in Florida but especially Florida,like Florida Memorial, Edward Waters or FAMU, if you want to do that, I want to help you do that. I will help you get tutors to get you out of high school, tutors to help you pass the SAT and I will give you a full ride scholarship to any HBCU youd like."
Joyner said he was moved by Jeantel's testimony. The funding for the scholarship will come from the Tom Joyner Foundation.
Jeantel reluctantly took the stand to testify for the prosecution in the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman. She told the courtroom that she heard Martin say "get off, get off" before the call cut out and Zimmerman shot him. During her testimony, which spanned two days, she was mocked online by people insulting her dress, mannerisms, and intelligence.
Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges on Saturday.

I think she better start with Kindergarden Kollege
“Historically Black College or University she chooses.”
Does she even have a high school diploma yet?
Pearls before swine.
Beeyotch best be learnin’ to read a’fore she be tryin’ dat higher learnin’
Why a black college? BTW, do we have white colleges any more? Why are they allowed to have black colleges?
Nice gesture but what good will it do if she’s functionally illiterate? Better to help her figure out a skill she enjoys and has an aptitude for and pay for her training.
I guess it’s okay that she lied and admitted she lied.
She cant read, write or speak with any skill.
next thing she will land her dream job at the post office.
How could she? She couldn’t even read.
A PhD in ethnic studies is highly likely. Just as long as it’s printed and not in cursive.
And they didn't use cursive.
She’ll take cash instead, thanks.
I think his money is safe. Really. Even grievance studies programs have some standards.
Good thing they no longer require comprehension of “cursive” as a skill. Heaven forefend they ever try to read certain print that is inherently cursive in that case . . .
Must be a scholarship to a “new school.”
This positions her nicely for a future supervisory in public service.
Nice PR gesture, but I’m betting he made it believing that there’s no way she would meet the admissions requirements, and therefore he won’t ever have to pay her a cent.
If he were genuine he’d be offering her immediate accademic assistance in the form of tutors and a private school education.
It be b’cuz she be such a grate mind...
She sounds perfect for FSU.
Ducking for cover.
Sounds like a congressional candidate to me. I bet she'd win, too.
dats old school
Grambling State University (about 5 miles down Interstate 20 from where I sit) would snap her up in a New York minute.
some how after seeing her talk and he demeanor then I would say she would not last a year in college and does she not have to take the SAT
“Here’s the college application form, Rachel - just put your “x” on that line there and I’ll date it for you.”
“Why a black college?”
Because they’re easier.
Yes, this is the kind of person that gets a government job where they can make the lives of productive people as hellish as they want to.
meet admission standards, have you ever seen black schools, they’re awful and to think they actually have so called nurses coming out of them too?
Oh the sometimes not so transparent soft bigotry of lowered expectations. So let me get his right, the founder of this black block, newsletter, paper, whatever will give Ms CA-Cr@cker (that word is racist to ME!) a scholarship to any HBCU or MI....ain't that ducky. Why is dat? Because she's to stupid to succeed in a college that doesn't pass every black student it admits?
C'mon now dude! Spring for her a first rate wasted education. Go Harvard! Yeah....being black pretty much gives her a pass on all that, too, but she'd damned well be able to read a teleprompter.
I very sincerely hope that she gets some kind of education, because the public schools of Florida have obviously failed her.
I’d be very surprised if she took him up on his offer.
I’m surprised that Obama hasn’t offered her a cabinet position or a free ride to one of the military academies.
Bulsh! Schools are not responsible for education, the student is.....You can lead a horse to water...
I predict a major in Black Studies and a minor in Cursive Writing.
And if you don’t select her for a professional position if you find her application/résumé in your in-box, you’re a racist and a creepy ass cracka.
Whitey can attend an HBCU but, students and administration will apply as much “historically black” discrimmination the Crackah so that “all things are equal”.
IOW, don’t turn whitey away, just make him feel the same humiliation we think we would receive if we went to a majority white school.
She’ll graduate with honors at one of dem “skools”.
Of all the deserving Black children out there this jack**s panders to ratings ratings and bullshit instead of giving someone a leg up. Someone that would actually improve themselves and society.
She qualifies for “O’s” staff!
I’ll do something even more productive....going to a bridge over I-25 and try to throw $5 bills into the bed of every Toyota pick up that passes by.
She’s just what the IRS is looking for to administer
the Health care Mandate. No doubt she has Upper Management written all over her. She’d be perfect as Louis Lerner’s replacement.
Of course and she won’t even have to attend!
