To the naked white eye, Ms. Jeantel would, indeed, appear to be as dumb as a huge fat pile of wildebeest dung swarming with flies on the African savannah. On the witness stand, she communicated through a series of grunts, clicks, and rutting noises. She was unable to read her own handwriting. Visibly annoyed by her interrogator, it seemed that at any moment she was going to fling a handful of feces at him while scratching her armpits.
To quote a very different fellow indeed, I think Glenn Beck nails it here:
“And if you don’t like looking at the transparency and seeing what your culture is, well, then maybe you’ve got a problem and that’s what this attorney did. He didn’t bully her. He made her look into the water. He made her look into the mirror,” he continued. “What does that mean for the beloved Trayvon Martin? What will that mean if I then say, ‘Yes, Trayvon was part of that culture, he did say that thing’? She knows. She knows the life she’s living is a lie. She knows that her culture is the underbelly of what culture should be. She knows it. Otherwise, she would have been proud to answer that question, but she wasn’t.”
UPDATE: Sailer — who correctly predicted that a witness on the stand would testify that Trayvon thought he was being followed by a “pervert” — writes:
The Trayvon case, with its semi-literate and not very satisfactory star witness, suggests why white liberal elites have been shifting their focus from blacks to gays as Favorite Victim Group.
