Rachel Jantel Smeared in the Media

In Mary Elizabeth Williams post on The Smearing of Rachel Jantel

Williams lists the massive amount of negative press and web blast at the girl known as Witness #8
in the justice system, Trayvon Martin case.

Finally she ends ends with "So now would be a good time to point out that Jeantel’s weight, her nails, her sex, her color – these things have precisely jack to do with her account of what happened the night Travyon Martin died. Justice is supposed to serve teenagers too, and people who party and who don’t hide it when they’re angry or flustered, and women who can’t read cursive. It’s supposed to serve people whose dialogue wasn’t written for them by David E. Kelley. Remember that. Remember that Rachel Jeantel is not the one on trial. Mary Elizabeth Williams Mary Elizabeth Williams is a staff writer for Salon and the author of "Gimme Shelter: My Three Years Searching for the American Dream." Follow her on Twitter: @embeedub.

here some of the negative Maru Elizabeth Williams points out:
"Rachel Samara wrote Wednesday in Global Grind, “A predominantly white jury is not going to like Rachel Jeantel,” a girl “who has no media training and who is fully entrenched in a hostile environment.”

the Smoking Gun carefully picked through her social media history, uncovering such bombshells as a recent image of what she described as her “court nails.” She has posted photos of liquor bottles and declared that “wowww I need a drink” and tweeted “party time let get high” [sic]. The Smoking Gun also reports that she’s posted “a sexually suggestive series of photos,” “made references to Martin’s death, referred to acquaintances as ‘bitch’ and ‘nigga,’ and wrote about having ‘jackass lawyers on my ass.’” She has in recent days deleted several dozen of her more damning tweets. And so Smoking Gun commenters have, in their turn, declared that she’s not just a “thug” but “proof the gene pool NEEDS more chlorine!” … “and maybe some arsenic too.” Funnily enough, there’s no mention on the site that on Monday she also posted, “I’m a friend god damn it,” or that she loves Jill Scott and Janet Jackson.

Here is what is true about Jeantel. She has publicly admitted to underage drinking and getting high. She is a poor speller (at least on social media). Her way with words is not calculated to win favor – she has testified that Martin told her “a creepy-ass cracker” was following him. She has responded to the defense’s line of questioning with an icy “You got it?” and “That’s retarded, sir.” The Daily News describes her diction as “often difficult-to-understand” and says it’s “cringe-worthy” and “humiliating” that she couldn’t read a letter out loud on the stand because she says, “I don’t read cursive.” Jeantel has also admitted to law enforcement that she lied about her initial claim that she didn’t attend Martin’s funeral because she was hospitalized at the time; she now says that she felt too “guilty” to face his parents and “didn’t want to see the body.” She admits that at the beginning of the investigation, she said she was under 18, because she didn’t want to get involved. She is unpolished and emotional.
So is she a reliable witness? That’s yet to be determined. And watching her struggling to articulate “the sound of wet grass” to the jury, you can see not just her frustration but defense lawyer Don West’s undisguised exasperation. But when outlets like MSN gleefully seize upon the fact that she’s posting photographs of her nails, they invite exactly the kind of troubling and deeply offensive conclusions about what a “bitch,” what “ghetto trash,” what an “ugly ho” “buffalo” she is, that they have been racking up ad nauseam."

thanks for pointing all that out

I think that she's about to shoot her testimony in the metaphorical foot.  If you want to be taken seriously, you have to behave in such a way that people WILL take you seriously.

Her credibility is at questionable to say the least. My gosh Even the Prosecution should have doubts about this one. I cant believe they seriously got her involved. She will hurt the case more than help it.

I just happened to see a couple of minutes of her cross examination on someone's TV. This woman can't even form a coherent thought, much less a complete sentence.

    Hey, she is young and caught up in a terrible situation of the death of a friend. She is not doing any of this very willingly and I can't fault her for just wanting to go back to being a teenager laughing and hanging with her friends. God's peace. These kids have a language of their own which is the comments we don't understand.

  • From a post on streetboners.com:
    Hey there, white boy—the only thing people are complaining about is the insane double standard. It’s hilarious that you gullible dupes of multiculturalism and willing supplicants to the modern Cult of Equality tried to sculpt a false racial narrative about this case and now can’t handle the truth. The real “pussies” are the sort of fey, sheltered white nerds such as Hamilton Nolan, John Cook, and Max Read who can’t admit they were wrong.
    It’s people like the eterna-smirkers on Gawker’s staff who insist that “racists” are “living in the past,” when the truth is that the “anti-racists” are still feeding off of atrocities that ceased happening generations ago. The real racial violence in America these days is lopsidedly against whites. Statistics support that fact up the yin-yang, but don’t ever expect these pussies to deal with statistics. It subverts the narrative, yo.
    I don’t hear them making a peep about all the Tweeted death threats from semi-retarded dusky keyboard-peckers that they’s about ta kill dem some crackas if Zimmerman walks. Would it be illegal to give these people the address to Gawker’s office? There seem to be a disproportionate quotient of crackers there. I mean, at least in the abstract, that would be a good place to start.
  • Over at Skepchick, the smarmy atheists who never seem to be the least bit skeptical about the ludicrous notion of blank-slate equality, AKA “liberal creationism,” a writer clucks at those who thinks that Rachel Jeantel’s dumb-as-rocks Florida Negroidal dialect sounds “ignorant.” Funny how these are the same people who are ALWAYS making fun of white Southern dialects for representing the apex of ignorance.
    On Global Grind, Christina Coleman, who is black or at least partially so, scolds white people for being incapable of understanding the obviously nuanced deep thinker that is Miz Rachel Jeantel.
    Oh, eat a chocolate frozen banana, already. Jeantel is dumb as shit. It’s bleedingly obvious. Get real. Isn’t that part of being black—the “getting real” shtick? If so, I’m blacka than all y’all crackas.
