    Missy Elliot gave a subtle nod to Trayvon Martin with a sample in 2015's "WTF (Where They From)."(VIDEO-AT-LINK) The fact that was recently unearthed in a stunning profile for Elle by Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah. BuzzFeed's Saeed Jones pointed out the excerpt from the profile out on Twitter on Thursday. The sample was the voice of Rachel Jeantel, Trayvon Martin's teenage friend who was also the last person to speak to him just moments before he was gunned down by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman on February 26, 2012. Zimmerman was later acquitted of criminal charges related to Martin's death, but it...

    Alabama and Louisiana passed laws in 2016 mandating cursive proficiency in public schoolsCursive writing is looping back into style in schools across the country after a generation of students raised on keyboarding, texting and printing out letters longhand. Alabama and Louisiana passed laws in 2016 mandating cursive proficiency in public schools, the latest of 14 states to require cursive. And last fall, the 1.1 million-student New York City school system encouraged teaching cursive to students in the third grade. Penmanship proponents contend writing words in a single line is just a faster way of taking notes. Others say students...

    When she was testifying during the George Zimmerman trial, Rachel Jeantel said many things, but what is perhaps most profound in its meaning was her statement that, “You old school.” This grammatical train wreck goes a long way toward explaining why Blacks cannot make any progress in our society despite being handed everything they ask for and lots of things even they wouldn’t have the nerve to ask for. It shines a light on the fact that Black children dictate what Black culture is. They determine how to speak dress and sing which of course stays in vogue for about...

    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...

    We've compiled 5 things white people can learn from Rachel Jeantel. Take notes. 1. Words like "cracka" and "nigga" don't carry the weight we've associated with them. . . . 4. She's not the hostile ghetto black girl everyone painted her to be. . . . 5. Rachel's not uneducated, we are. Rachel is not in fact the uneducated girl Don West and the Zimmerman team painted her to be. She's a young girl with an underbite, street smarts and a bit of a southern accent. She speaks the same language we speak - the Queen's English, as her opposition...

    MIAMI (CBS4) – Rachel Jeantel opens up about her friendship with Trayvon Martin, calling him a good and true friend. “He’s got an energy that makes you laugh, he’s real funny, and I like that in a person,” Jeantel said. “Trayvon never judged me, because I always had an under bite. It’s an under bite I need to get done. He never judged. He just said ‘oh, okay, that ain’t no problem’.”

    On his radio program Tuesday, radio host Tom Joyner announced that he would fully pay for Rachel Jeantel to attend a historically black college or university of her choice. Jeantel is the friend of Trayvon Martin who was the last person to speak to him before his February 2012 death and the star witness in the trial against George Zimmerman. Joyner told Jeantel on his radio program early Tuesday, “if you want to graduate from high school, and go to an HBCU…if you want to do that, I want to help you do that.” Jeantel is currently 19 years old...

    I listened to Rush this morning, explaining how the liberals overlooked how Jeantel's interview on the "crazy ass crumpet's" show last night had warned St. Trayvon to run away from the chicken hawk. Here is the original testimony that describes what she feared. I kept on cracking up how the prosecution kept asking her to repeat "crazy ass cracker." The defense should have made much more of the "rapist" remark, since this was not about the facts, but about social engineering. It is conceivable that she think Trayvon is a hero for saving his kid brother, who was back...

    During her lengthy interview with Piers Morgan last night, star witness Rachel Jeantel described how she and Trayvon Martin feared that George Zimmerman was a “rapist” following the 17-year-old teenager. Asked whether there was any doubt in her mind as to whether Martin “absolutely believed” Zimmerman was “pursuing him” that evening in 2012, Jeantel replied in the affirmative. He was “freaked out” about it, she said, especially after she had suggested to the late teenager that Zimmerman “might be a rapist.”

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: An entirely new perspective on this whole sordid incident was provided by Rachel Jeantel last night on CNN. Everybody's been under the impression that Zimmerman was a racist, and that's why he went after Trayvon. I went to great lengths yesterday, folks, to break this down and tell you what I think this was really all about. I'm not gonna repeat that but it is at Essentially, it was about economics.

    The incomparable Rachel Jeantel, the person Trayvon Martin spoke to on his phone just before he was shot and killed, last night explained why George Zimmerman was wrong to feel his life was in danger and he needed to go for his gun. It was just a case of “whup-ass”, she said on television. Her interviewer, the dense-Brit CNN host Piers Morgan, failed to immediately grasp her meaning and let the moment slip by. But if by some strange twist of fate millions of Americans were watching (they were not), any of them would have immediately understood her statement. Translated...

    Prosecution star witness Rachel Jeantel was interviewed by Piers Morgan last night on CNN. When asked by Piers to explain what 'creepy ass cracka' meant, she slipped up and stated that to Trayvon, it meant a security guard or policeman. So in Trayvon's mind, George Zimmerman was either a security guard or policeman. With that said, what kind of person circles back after running away and attacks a possible security guard or policeman? Go to exactly to 2:00 in the video and watch to 2:25

    In the third part of Piers Morgan‘s extensive, exclusive interview with Trayvon Martin‘s friend Rachel Jeantel about her testimony in the George Zimmerman trial, the host asked his guest if there was anything she wished she’d said on the stand. Jeantel answered with one word: “Nigga.” Jeantel explained to Morgan that “the whole world say it’s a racist word” but the version of the word that she testified Martin had used in reference to Zimmerman, spelled “n-i-g-g-a” doesn’t mean what most people think it means. It doesn’t mean a “black male” as Morgan assumed, she said, but rather any kind...

    bombshell interview with an anonymous Zimmerman trial juror tonight with an exclusive chat with the witness everyone has been waiting to hear from since the verdict came down: Trayvon Martin‘s friend Rachel Jeantel. Jeantel, who created a media firestorm with her highly-polarizing testimony towards the beginning of the trial, appeared on Piers Morgan Live alongside her attorney. She described her reaction to Zimmerman’s acquittal as “disappointed, upset and angry” and called the jury’s assessment of what happened “just B.S.” Asked about what Trayvon Martin was like as a friend, Jeantel described him as a “calm, chill, loving person” and said...
