Learning from Rachel Jeantel
American Thinker, by Leann Horrocks

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 8/3/2013 8:38:49 AM

To quote Nancy Pelosi, we can now see what´s in the Zimmerman-Martin case "without the fog of the controversy". I think the biggest lesson to be learned was from Rachel Jeantel, a friend of Trayvon Martin that testified at the trial. Rachel Jeantel has just had her 15 minutes. (snip)We shouldn´t turn away from this young woman, though, because she illustrates something so clearly. She doesn´t live in "another world" as her defenders claim, she lives in a prison.

To Miss Lube,

If Jantel lives in a prison, it is of your making. You and your party have used class and race to your benefit. You have never confronted Sharpton, Jackson, Reynolds or any who have excused conduct and responsibility. Where is your outrage for all the shootings in Illinois? Where is your connection with the white mother whose son was shot in the face by two black teens?

Your husband doesn´t pay above his employees high wages. I wonder what your family gives to the poor from your own wealth? Star Kist Tuna and your wine company?

If we reintroduced literacy tests, people like Rachel Jeantel would not be eligible to vote ´next year´--or ever.

Rather than a prison, I believe that Blacks are shackled to the Demonrat Plantation. The similarities between Antebellum slaves and present day African-Americans are numerous. But one of the main difference is that today Blacks have the power to remove those shackles if only they would. But decades of false promises and outright lies by Demonrat politicians and the enormous social pressure exerted on them by the Plantation´s House Negroes (Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Eleanor Holmes-Norton, Sheila Jackson-Lee, et al) have cowed the the Black community into group think and have convinced them that it´s best to remain on the Plantation, living in perpetual poverty while working menial jobs (if they can find a job all), collecting their welfare checks and food stamps, living in public housing,receiving a dumbed-down, substandard education, and immersing themselves in cultural rot all in exchange for never, ever voting for a Republican. Fear and intimidation is a nasty and harmful thing.

This article is "right on," especially when it was said the blacks expect us (anyone who is not black) to change, to treat them differently, or we will be call racist. Since I was robbed twice by black men, assaulted by a black man walking on the sidewalk, and both incidents were terrifying, my mental image of them is raw fear. Until the blacks change their image and lead productive lives, nothing will change, and there will be this divide. Rachel Jeantel was the epitome of the uneducated black person who has been given everything, her poor language skills are tolerated in our schools, her pompous attitude is endeared in her culture. She really does not need to accomplish anything or work for anything, as in this country it is all provided; food, shelter, cell phones, and free healthcare for her and all her babies.

I see a girl like her and I think of Charles Dickens. The girl is want and the boy is ignorance. Watch the girl but fear the boy. You can´t continue as a country when a large portion does not know anything more than their own constructed values and their world view ends at the end of their street.
Once a girl told me I was the nicest guy she ever met. She was/is white living in a white project in Boston. I told her to do herself a favor. The next morning, walk to the end of the street and when she got to the end, rather than turning around, take a right or left and keep walking.

I have said many times I am not interested in dissecting Obama´s brain and thoughts I haven´t the time nor the desire to do so. The same goes for the black culture. Rachel Jeantel is all I need to see, know and hear along with the Trayvon Martin incident. I just don´t care if blacks fit in because it´s their choice spirited along by ´their´ leaders.
A majority of the woes of this nation can have a black face painted on it because that´s where it lies with democrats. It´s not brown, yellow, red or white skinned people that rules and laws are passed for it´s for blacks only to benefit and be held down. Call it white guilt but I never suffered from it.

FTA:"So what is her comfort zone? It is a swaddling, nurturing network of extended families and lifelong friends with a complex and strict set of rules. It is very loving, supportive, and comfortable indeed, and very difficult to leave. It is a rich life in some ways, and all you have to pay to immerse yourself in this sea of caring is one thing -- your future.

Leann is to be commended for apt description of prison life as a comparison to the liberal plantation in all of our blue cities . As were are constantly being screeched at about the racial makeup of the vast majority of inmates, this further illustrates the reason for such a high recidivism rate among them.

Jeantel and her friends live in the hood, the victimhood. They´re all united there in the belief that they´ve been wronged by society at large but white society in particular. To a large extent white society agrees and supports them in the hood but stays out because being the oppressors they´re wrong by definition in any interactions that occur there. The hood might be comfortable but it consists of nothing but dead end streets. There´s nowhere to go in the hood. The only way out is to stop being a victim.

I love the sound of the ringing of truth:

You self-righteous self-professed interpreters of black people´s needs should stop with the touchiness ... You want everyone else to change except the people with the problem.

That is the hallmark of liberalism; blame "the system". We have all known losers who use the same excuse when they fail.

You´ve made sure they won´t listen to us, so you have to do it. All your hypersensitive whining has just extended the cultural trap these people are in -- you are just another pair of arms reaching out and pulling them down. Stop telling these kids that their life style is OK. It´s not OK.

When Bill Cosby tried telling them "it´s not OK", he was vilified by his own people and the media. Like Charles Murray, Bill Cosby told the truth and got crucified for it by the usual suspects.

How about a "path to citizenship" for these people?

Well done. They might as well be living in a foreign country anyway. They don´t speak English and they live on other people´s money, yet they expect to succeed beyond their situation. When they don´t, they blame everyone else, usually by calling them racists. Jesse Jackson has been making a living all these decades by exploiting them, the creep.

This girl also scares me to death for one reason -- next year she will be able to vote.

So will thousands more of her, cloned by a culture that lauds coarseness, secularism, celebrity, profanity and sexual profligacy. That isn´t American. It´s hell on the greatest soil on earth.

Those who need to learn from Rachel Jeantel are not listening. Never have. It is not in THEIR best interest to do so. Their life and livelihood are in the BGI (Black Grievance Industry).

They are not altruists who care about their "community". They are parasites who must keep RJ exactly where she is. And plan on having her vote.

You have to wonder how many experts on Rachel have lived in the hood or taught a classroom full of Rachel´s. How would you like to be the one kid in the room who wants to escape the hood ? How many of these experts have worked in social services or the police department with the likes of Rachel and TM ?

The Rachel´s of the world are dumb and proud of it. You are the one that is wrong in her opinion. You owe them because of the color of their skin.

Shame on those that made it out of the ghetto that didn´t lend a hand up to their own kind. The first grifters had a good opportunity to make a difference but preferred to live the lives of the rich and infamous.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
