When I see Rachel Jeantel it reminds me the veracity (or perhaps the logical point) of certain theories that I considered absurd and stupid in the past. It make me rethink the Darwin theory of evolution, and the latest theory of Harvard regarding the IQ of the black race. In first place, unfortunately for my doubts in the theory of evolution, the resemblance of Rachel Jeantel with a gorilla makes me rethink. Her facial features and demeanor makes me rethink about an IQ deficit. However, I seen many black people with remarkable intelligence and with superior IQ. She was so rough on the edges that makes me think that she resembled more an ape than a person. However, I have to consider that she was using a lot of makeup and even her best wig to appear on national television. At the same time, I am used to see beautiful black artists and singers, and even black models, that can compete with the most beautiful models in the whole world (example Beyonce, etc.) However, I now understand that if Darwin was able to talk to a person such as Rachel Jeantel, it reassured him that his theory of evolution was correct. At the same time, observing big apes such as Gorillas, I can tell that they display great and superb intelligence features. So is this (Rachel Jeantel) the evolutionary missing link that we were looking for? Or that the Gorillas are an evolutionary upgrade of a faulty link.

from an intellectual stand point your theory has some flaws.
Environment and surroundings directly affects ones ability to learn and even function. Also your theory doesn't seem to be objective but subjective so I must conclude it is a self-serving bit of crapola.

She can speak two other languages, that's very impressive. Anyway I think she will get the support and help from bp after this to aid her education and present herself to the best of her ability.

Bp who went off on her was not right but I understand that some bp just want to see better representations of themselves in the media but the standard some bp want can often be set to high in wanting perfection.

I don't have a problem with the way she looks or the way she talks. I kinda like her looks and personality. She's somebody I could trust. But there are a lotta self-hating black people in our community and if you have a dark skin black person who speaks a little ebonics, those self haters lose their fkin minds. any other black person than a light skin halle berry lookin mfker who talks any thing less educated than a college professor would make them ashamed.
Having dark skin is not the problem.

Because of her presentation, her CREDIBILITY is called to question. They also say she changed her story. Calling someone a "self hater" because they acknowledge these things is childish.

Wrong Afronazi. I confront and expose your Afronazi lies when you're trying to steal someone else's history, which is all you self-hating cultists ever do.

I suggest you shut up now, fool.

If that Precious actress ever needs a stunt woman, stand in, or body double, I think they just found one.
So, they let in a Haitian and look at the results.
Maybe she would be happier in Haiti. Not many crackers there. But no. She will stay here and let the whites support her fat, stupid ass.
Did you here the witnesses and see the photos?

Americans in general regardless of race should be embarrassed by Rachel Jeantel. Parents in this country are just not paying close attention to what their children are really doing in school, and sadly she is a prime example of our failed education system. She is not the only one at all and I've come across all sorts of children like her from every ethnic background, body size and gender who just give up. It is not her fault and I don't blame her. I actually feel very bad for her and I don't think it was fair for her to be lambasted and shamed by Zimmerman's defense attorney while she was on the witness stand yesterday. When I watched her I just saw a sadness in her eyes; it just doesn't seem like she has a lot of self-esteem and she seems like a troubled, uneducated girl who's crying for help inside.
Please stop with this "she's just a poor victim" crap. Anyone living in this country can use his/her brain and be a responsible citizen. It's up to the individual to be responsible for himself, and NOT up to the rest of the responsible citizenry to rescue the self-pitying low-lifes. Ma'am, you need to do some serious thinking.

While I agree that it was horrible for people to attack her looks, Im only embarrassed at the lack of concern from black people about poor education. Endless excuses. lmao@ a little ebonics. Nah.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with ebonics. And if you REALLY thought about it, you would see that.

Any black people who are that concerned about what whites think of us are not worth listening to. for one thing, whites will always find things wrong with us simply and basically because we are not them. The chinese make fun of whites all the time. their looks and their behavior, for example. And if we had any power, we would probably do the same thing to whites.

There may be nothing wrong with ebonics, but I don't know of anyone trusting a doctor who speaks that way. Would you? There's a reason why new anchors speak standard English. In court EVERYTHING is about presentation and evidence --EVERYTHING!

Listen to these F6CKIN WHITE PEOPLE!...talkin all this sh8t about this girl. About how she's being "disrespectful".

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

I don't see ANY disrespect here. In the one clip she's just telling the defense lawyer 'go ahead and ask the question." Nothing wrong with that. Then she's talking to the lawyer and he turns his back and walks away from her, which is a very rude gesture and she says to him "are you listening to me?" then she's clearly uncomfortable and shifting around in her chair and they like "she's rolling her eyes and being disrespectful" That's nothing but bullsh1t. All this is really about the fact that she's a big, dark skin bw. So they want to label her ignorant and ugly and disrespectful. To me, this girl is actually very nice and soft-spoken and "normal"...the thing that's gonna kill us on this case is all the black people who are so willing to throw her under the bus because they have their own hang-ups about overweight, darkskin bw.

They're saying she lied and had two different stories.

She's not the first black, dark skinned, woman to ever appear as a witness.

As usual, you have no fkin idea what you're talking about. I know doctors from other countries such as mexico and china who don't speak standard english. This is because english is not their first language. So, if they were to give testimony, they would have no credibility? Dumba88 self-haters like you always want to make every aspect of black culture to be "inferior." Ebonics is no different from any other language. The ability to speak ebonics is not a problem. it is her lack of knowledge of standard english that might be perceived by the pretentious as negative. But she doesn't speak standard english because she doesn't live in a white commmunity. I know many people of latino and asian background who have lived in america for decades and speak very little english. This is because they live and work in their own communities so they speak the language of their community. You tryna tell me those asians and latinos are ignorant, ghetto hoodrats because they don't speak standard english?
