    I agree,...I mean, she isn't ebonically smart,..... With lots of courage, she went up on the stand like a pro.

    And you know what, them prosecutors knew she wasn't coached right. The defense team should've, at least, coached her just a little bit more, knowing that she is young and still traumatised by this..

    Everybody should just leave her alone. i saw how black folks and whites too, have been criticising her on twitter, tumblr, facebook, and instagram.

    People don't understand that it's not easy going on the stand as a witness with thousands of eyes looking at you. Its scary.

    Luv ya sista for posting this.

    This body of text taken from your link really needs to be read and taken to heart.


    People that shun education, follow lil weezy, etc. will be judged this same way. And if you can't articulate yourself, the courts aren't going to listen to you. It says it right here in the article. Just look how they allow Charles Ramsey to look and speak on national Tv. Here is an example.



    I only point this out because when I saw it, it made me think back. I have never seen them allow whites to appear on national tv like that. When Zimmerman was on Hannity, he was helped, and coached on how to speak and talk. You can see this when he made the mistake of saying that is was god's plan. After the commercial break, Hannity went over it again, and Zimmerman changed his answer up.

    Peace!

    She was a witness for the prosecution not the defense! Consequently, the prosecutor should have prepped her. ;)

    This is what I forgot to say. Yes, she should have been prepped.

    Peace!

    truthfully speaking i didn't see anything wrong with her responses...
    she was frank and honest in my opinion...
    she flipped the script on the defense on the second day and had the lawyer frustrated....

    one love
