RACHEL JEANTELL SPEAKS ON TRAYVON
What did you guys feel about Rachel Jeantell's interview last night on CNN's Piers Morgan, following the verdict of not guilty for George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case? I have to admit as she spoke sometimes it was awkward because as real as I knew she was being, I couldn't help but think how much they enjoyed watching her be awkward in her speech, and saying inappropriate conversations she had with Trayvon prior to his death. An example of this would be when she said Trayvon referred to Zimmerman as a "white a** cracker, AWKWARD. I wondered just how much this might have helped the opposition really disqualify her testimony. Had she been an educated, working, individual some argue her story might have been received better. Did it matter? Rachel explained the scrutiny, and malicious remarks of people who watched her testify during trial. Lighter moments were where Rachel described feeling disappointment, upset and angry about the verdict. In a nut shell she came off sweet, as if she really cared about Trayvon. I think she did the best she could to help people understand what he was feeling at his last moments.
