See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND Informed Truth and Resistance

A few thoughts on Trayvon Martin’s friend Rachel Jaentel… The minute that sister took the stand, jokes were flying around twitter about her looks and her weight… People were going in and saying…

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

Davey D Keeps it Deep . . .

"Like so many of us who come from the community, we are expected to suck it up, not cry and see the violent passing of love ones as some sort of truth about how tough we are and how tough are respective hoods are.. We ain’t supposed to need counseling, therapy or any sort of comforting to help get our mind right.."

  1. I have been wanting to somehow let Rachel know that she did an outstanding job in memory of Trayvon. She was focused, bold, honest didn’t allow anything (and , I guess I really mean anyone) to intimidate her. She was raw. I am a Caucasian, 67 year old mother of 4 and, BTW, I like raw 🙂 Rachel, I’m proud of you. Stand tall, young lady.
