Painting Rachel Jeantel as “combative” is a classic way to discredit the validity of black women’s traumas
For all the critics of this young woman and find her limitations and demeanor uncomfortable, here is the bottom line of your criticism in case you are lost in finding it. If you find her wanting, look inward. She attends the schools that you finance, she is being bullied in a system of jurisprudence that you pay for. She is you . . . and you kinda’ hate that don’t you ?
