So, yes, Rachel Jeantel -- the young woman testifying in the George Zimmerman trial -- is not articulate. And, yes, she has attitude for days.
But for those on FB and Twitter
calling her names, please give her some credit.
She's only 19, and under terrific pressure right now . . . but she is up there on
the stand -- and on national television -- bravely admitting to her
prior deception and poor judgment, and willing to set the record
straight in the name of justice.
I happen to think she's doing remarkably well under the circumstances.
I DON'T THINK ANYONE WHO SAW HER ON THE STAND CAN DENY THAT SHE SEEMS TO BE DOING THE BEST THAT SHE CAN.
Yep, I do think it's a shame she only seems fluent in ebonics, but
that's the reality of it . . . and I don't FULLY put the blame on her
Personally, I choose to praise her rather than criticize her.
