Class of 2014 .......back to business— Ms.Rachel Jeantel (@MsRachel_94) May 31, 2014
Rachel was reported to have said that just looking at Trayvon’s mom evoked memories of him. Jeantel was on the phone with Martin in a call be made to her just before he lost his life.
“Her coming is like having Trayvon there saying, ‘You did it. You proved people wrong,’” Jeantel told Yahoo News.
The Black American teen was shot dead by George Zimmerman, a white policeman who was on night duty. The tragic death caused a nationwide moratorium on lots of issues ranging from racism to gun control.
Rachel Jeantel disparaged Zimmerman thoroughly and her accent was slightly difficult to interpret. These drawbacks went in favor of Zimmerman who was let off the hook easily.
Some of Rachel’s antics in the courtroom caused a lot of people to actually mock her. She couldn’t speak English properly and couldn’t even read a document that was written in cursive.
Jeantel says that she was just a friend of Trayvon and he was such a nice human being that he had never judged her on the basis of her obesity. “He cared about you,” Jeantel said. “That’s a good human.”
Later on an African American lawyer named Vereen helped her get a lot of help and tutoring in subjects such as Math and English which she was lagging in.
Today she is a highly educated person with a diploma and the ability to speak fluent English. It is a far cry from the sensitive awkward young lady who stepped into the witness box at Trayvon’s trial.
She and her friends have proved the world wrong. And Jeantel is also going to get a job and possibly pursue fashion designing in the future. Had Trayvon been alive he would have been truly proud of his female friend.
