    Wow, this thread took a real turn toward the racialism.

    Nothing to do with race. It's all about behavior.

    Good for you. Not sure what that is an argument for or against.

    On a less personal note, I didn't see most of the testimony. What generated all of the anger against this woman again? She's not intelligent enough when facing a lawyer that's trying to destroy her credibility? She's lower income? She behaves like a not particularly well-educated young adult? She exhibits some unflattering cultural differences? Her linguistic manner seems incorrect or unintelligent?

    Watch the videos and see for yourself. They're all over the web, dude. This girl took a big heaping dump on the prosecution's case.

    Sorry, thought your previous comments had implied that my dislike for Jeantel was somehow racially motivated, rather than because her existence is a detriment to whatever community she's a part of.

    The defense is trying to paint Trayvon Martin as a stereotypical young black thug in order to make Zimmerman's suspicion (and later aggression) seem justified, and in response the defense puts a woman on the witness stand who is the living embodiment of basically every negative stereotype about American black women (aside from having a handful of bastard kids). It's barely possible to make a more boneheaded move than playing into the other side's narrative.

    I haven't followed this case nearly as much as others, and I acknowledge I dont have even close to all of the facts, but based only on what i've seen go on in the courtroom on tv, I couldn't say beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman indeed murdered that kid in cold blood.

    Her existence is a detriment to her community. Jesus Christ, c'mon. Is that hyperbole just an attempt at comedy?

    What specifically black stereotypes did she embody? Just curious.

    For those following the case, did this woman need to be somehow presented as an acception to some common perception of the black community for the killing to have seemed unjust or criminal?

    I linked a page listing a lot of the tweets that got scrubbed from her Twitter feed. Go read it if you haven't already.

    Isn't it possible that Trayvon Martin is exactly who Zimmermans camp says he was and did exactly what they said he did? So far the testimony in court from the closest eyewitness to the events supports Zimmerman, not the prosecution.

    She's a walking contradiction. They asked her to read a letter aloud to the court that she supposedly wrote and she couldn't read it. She called white people "crackers" while on the stand. She said that the defense attorneys notion that Martin had any fault in the events was "retarded." She's the personification of the exact opposite of who you would want representing your community.

    I wasn't arguing the merits of the case at all. I was simply arguing that putting her on the stand was terrible strategy from the prosecution.
