She testified on Thursday, June 27th and was labeled by social media and by the professional media as Black, Dark Skinned, Belligerent, Ignorant, Ghetto, Stupid, Ugly -- almost every moniker that can debase an human being possible.
The following day, Friday, June 28th, her entire demeanor changed. Social media and professional media felt she was coached, though she said she got some rest. True or not, in my opinion THERE WAS BLATANT STEREOTYPING AND BIGOTRY THAT THIS YOUNG LADY WAS DEALT WITH THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE NOT SUFFERED HAD THE PROSECUTION PLACED HER IN A PROTECTED CLASS!!!
I say they should have declared her to have a disability. A disability is defined by the American with Disabilities Act that is not limited to just physical but also mental by the DSM-VI as incorporated in 2009.
I got cursed out for this. Because further labeling her as "disabled" = "STUPID" by some Black people and White people. There is a stigma associated with the word "disability". BUT IT IS IRRESPONSIBLE AND MALPRACTICE WHEN FORCING ANYONE TO ANSWER A QUESTION THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND FULLY AFTER IT HAS BEEN DECLARED THAT THEY HAVE A KNOWN DISABILITY!!!
IF YOU SAW HOW THE DEFENSE TREATED MISS RACHEL JEANTEL AND THE TORTURE LEVIED UPON HER THAT WAS LEGAL MALPRACTICE! THAT VIOLATED HER CIVIL RIGHTS - in my opinion.
It is the only explanation that can explain her reasoning for not wanting to be there. SHE WAS AFRAID THAT SHE MIGHT LOOK STUPID! And what those bastards did to her, WAS WRONG! Not even a dog is treated the way she was treated... They could have done something to protect her. Which means, someone FAILED HER ON THE FIRST DAY!
On the second day, that got partially rectified. But still YELLING AT HER AND FORCING HER TO READ SOMETHING SHE CANNOT READ (the police officer's report written in cursive handwriting) - SORRY! That just goes to show you KOCH BROTHER'S WHO PAY FOR ZIMMERMAN'S LAWYERS ARE RACIST SHITHEADS!
The jury of Zimmerman's peers, all female, on person of color, probably were put off by Miss Jeantel's demeanor on the first day. But the second day, the "CNN analysts" stated the jurors were more interested and taking notes and trying to grasp the point.
Information is available at our fingertips. Even if sequestered, the jury can view the public opinion in some forms.
Miss Jeantel was a teen that cared for nothing about real-life until Trayvon Martin got killed. So she said things young people say on social media. Exchange all kinds of text messages. That is what young people do and her family probably did not monitor her communications. It is not something that happens in some households.
This is how life is for a lot of people, and when you do not have a CLUE that it existed in AMERICA means you are socially and consciously illiterate.
The main attorney for the Defense is Don West. He is lost because he cannot relate to something he has never seen. Watch Koch Brother's bring in some "kneegrow" lawyer to help out for cultural competency... I say don't do it, because you know what, RACIST AMERICA needs to see the segregation they espouse when they cut education, when they cut foodstamps programs, when they decided not to fund early childhood development. They need to see what poverty will become when they hurt the least of us.
