Must not be sarcastic about black dishonesty

Comedian Steven Crowder is known for his comical — and, often times, edgy — viral videos. Keeping up with current events as he typically does, the performer posted a video on Facebook last week surrounding the George Zimmerman trial. Little did he know that the social media platform would inevitably ban the clip, citing a “hate speech” violation.

Before we get into the specifics of the removal, let’s first take a brief look at the video, which meshes media footage from Rachel Jeantel’s testimony in the much-covered court trial with Crowder’s perspective on her comments.

If you’ve been paying attention, you know that during questioning, Jeantel made some curious and noteworthy comments. When asked about whether Trayvon Martin might have lied to her, she said, “That’s real retarded, sir. That’s real retarded to do that, sir” — a response many found quite odd. Then there was Jeantel’s refusal to admit that the term “creepy a** cracker” was a racial statement.

Crowder took these moments and ran with them, poking fun in the viral video in question, which he titled, “‘Retarded’ Racist Zimmerman Trial Witness.” In assessing footage of Jeantel making these statements, the comedian made numerous quips that were laden with sarcasm about how “creepy a** cracker” obviously isn’t racist because white people use it all the time as a term of endearment.

Creepy-ass-craker and retarded are perfectly acceptable, everyday terms in the ghetto when they refer to Whites. That's why i have absolutely no problem using the word nigga.

She seems like a serial killer. Her responses seemed detached, sociopathic. Then again birds of a feather flock together, so it makes sense that she would be friends with a druggie thug like Martin.

Interesting comment, anon 5:46.
I took a moment to re-watch the highlights of her testimony.
You might be right.
But then, I'm not a psychologist; I'm not sure if you are.
But as they say, "something about that child just ain't right".
Just a thought, but... Trayvon seemed to be a fairly attractive and moderately intelligent young man, possible criminal intent discounted...
What the hell was he doing hanging out with this young lady?
