Yes, Rachel Jeantel Did Think It Was ‘Racist’ When Rush Limbaugh Said ‘N*gga’
Mediaite.com ^ | 11:34 am, July 17th, 2013 | by Matt Wilstein

Posted on 07/17/2013 5:12:46 PM PDT by drewh

Trayvon Martin‘s friend and witness for the prosecution in the George Zimmerman trial Rachel Jeantel got an opportunity to respond directly to Rush Limbaugh during an extended interview with Marc Lamont Hill Live Wednesday morning. Despite Limbaugh’s insistence that he now his Jeantel’s permission to say “nigga” with an “a,” Jeantel said the conservative radio host’s comments did “feel racist” to her.

In her first major interview since the Zimmerman trial ended, Jeantel explained to Piers Morgan Monday night the difference between “nigger” with an “-er,” which she said is a “racist” word and “nigga” with an “a,” which she said in her generation means just means any “male.” Tuesday, Limbaugh used Jeantel’s explanation as an excuse to use the “non-racist” version of the word on his radio show, saying, “I think can [say it] now, isn’t that the point? Because it’s not racist.”

HuffPost Live’s Hill played the Limbaugh clip for Jeantel and asked her to respond. When he first asked her if she knew who Limbaugh is, Jeantel replied, “No, who’s that?” After listening to the clip, she said, “When you say it out loud in person in front of people, that’s disrespectful,” she said, adding, “It is racist for an adult.”

Hill attempted to get some clarification from Jeantel, asking, “Does it matter whether the adult is black or white?”

“Yes!” Jeantel replied, with little hesitation.

“When you heard Rush Limbaugh say it just then, did it feel racist to you?” Hill asked.

“Well, yes,” Jeantel said. “But I can’t judge him.”

“It felt racist to me too,” Hill responded.

why do we fall into the media traps? Why are we and Rush even talking about that crap? You can’t win an argument with an idiot (democrats).

Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election for it and democrats/communists in the Congress and Senate.

the media says don’t look at that , but look at these rabbits for you to chase , zimmerman, Trayvon, Snowden, Adam Lanza.

and the media (our slavers) says don’t think of the Amnesty bill think of Kimd Kardishian , sports and holly wood.

Frankly, Rush can do accents pretty well except when it comes to a Southern accent....Hillary Clinton fails that also...Rush isn’t that bad but he should not try to sound like he knows how...baaaad form.

Its pathetic that she’s so damn stupid.

Its pathetic that she’s a product of public schools.

Its pathetic that she is the product of unenforced immigration laws.

Its sickening that at some point, someone will breed with her and the cycle will continue.

Oh yeah, but she has a 3.0 GPA. Probably from the same school as obama.

So now Rachel Jeantel is the judge and jury on racism in America? Why the “F” does anyone care what she has to say about anything, other than which fast food restaurant in Sanford has the best fries?

not only she can vote, she probably can vote more than once , however she still cancels my vote out and so does millions like here.

If we were given 5 questions about the election on what the candidates stood for like .

Which candidate supports homosexuals getting married ?
Who supports letting in millions of illegals and giving them welfare?

etc
etc
etc

If you had to get them right before you were allowed to vote then the Dems would never get power outside the north east

Yes and the media will most of all hide that Congress is trying to sneak through an Amnesty bill that will give Amnesty to 30 million illegals and allow each one of those new citizens to bring in 5 family members each from the 3rd world all who will vote for democrats who will turn the USA into a communist state.

The media has many conservatives focused on this Trayvon circus while the congress sticks the knife with the Amnesty. the media says look a rabbit, the media says chase Trayvon, Snowden,Adam Lanza, zimmerman,kim Kardashian, sports, Hollywood etc. and all Americans follow the brainwashing like mind numbed robots.

Hill was made a professor at Ivy League Columbia. His specialty is hip hop. These people are truly disgusting.

If you find yourself caring what Jeantel thinks on any subject, I can guarantee you are an idiot.

What a shock, it doesn’t sound racist to them when they are racists.

So I’m saying I FEEL OFFENDED that you said ‘cracker ‘ass’ whitey’ or whatever it was, and that YOU think YOU get to say it. ‘Cuz I FEEEEEEL it was racist. So in fact I’m suing you for hurting my feelings. And I actually think ‘jive ass turkey’ is ok, too.

Here in Georgia they have the HOPE scholarship. Over time, money got tight, as more and more kids qualified for it. Well, over that same time they saw kids doing exactly what you say, entering college and having to take remedial everything.

Found out, although nothing has ever been done about it, that the teachers were just giving these kids the appropriate grades so they could qualify. Didn’t matter if they could read, write or do algebra.

We’re watching the evolution of a word in hyper-speed. Racial Jenteal also claimed she cannot be racist herself because her grandmother is white. So at least Racial Jenteal agrees Zimmerman isn’t the racist TM’s attorneys were portraying.

The media is finding much wisdom and intelligence in Jeantel, if she were a white southern male sounding this incredibly stupid and racist, I cringe to think of the way the media would be describing him and his state, his race, and region of birth.

Rachel Showantell is now our go-to fount of racial wisdom. I think that MSM is not very subtly describing black intelligence as minimal. ANd the blacks have to go along with it and pretend they are not being described as genetically morons to keep their place aunder the table.

She can’t make out cursive but she appreciates the fine distinctions between niggas and niggers (and, presumably, the niggardly). She might actually have intelligence but the direction in which she’s using it is, well, retarded.

Makes me think of Minstrel Shows, where white people would dress up in blackface and mock the "stupidity" of black people.

They are no longer around (thankfully) because they are really offensive.

Ms. Jeantel is like a living, breathing 2013 minstrel show, and black people are APPLAUDING her.

You're right, if this were a white person saying stupid crap like this, I would SWEAR it was a put on.

‘Spearchucker’ was edited out!!!
