“75% of university students voted for Obama as well and even higher if they went to an Ivy League school. Should they as well go through a literacy test? This is a young woman immersed in a ghetto culture. She is the real deal. If anything she was sincere. Whether she lied and fabricated testimony is another issue. Her lack of sophistication makes her a credible witness because her description of events have always been consistent.”
Someone who cannot read probably cannot form intelligent ideas about the issues. The exceptions to that rule are so rare as to be statistically meaningless.
She was not the real deal. She admitted to repeatedly lying under oath. How credible is testimony given under oath by someone who admits it does not bother her to lie under oath?
My guess is that she told St Martin to go back and teach that cracka a lesson. I do NOT believe “cracker” is a term of endearment by blacks towards whites. I do not think Miss Ebonics believes cracker is a neutral term. I think the ‘don’t you diss me’ attitude she displayed on the stand was shared by St Martin, and that night it killed him.
What happens during the lawyers’ summation speeches? Can the defense bring up the evidence that the judge ruled as inadmissible, i.e. the toxicology test showing Martin had marijuana in his system, his past history of fighting and suspension from school, and his mother having kicked him out of her house because of bad behavior, etc.
Also, Zimmerman told the police that Martin had been wandering about the neighborhood looking over the houses. In the rain. THAT is why Zimmerman was suspicious of him.
