Fred Reed argues that establishment media, and the left generally, has entirely missed the most significant point to be drawn from looking on at George Zimmerman’s trial.
The crucial fact to come out of the whole adventureâ€”crucial, and therefore utterly overlooked–was that Rachel Jeantel, a prosecution witness and black girl aged nineteen years, canÂ´t read. The grim implication of this fact is confirmed by the illiteracy of tweets from blacks regarding the case. â€œIma kill dat dumass cracker be racis.â€ Here we see as neatly displayed as if in a jewelry box why so many young blacks will go nowhere in the remaining fifty years of their lives. They canÂ´t read, or barely can. In a fading techno-industrial civilizationâ€”I use the latter word frivolouslyâ€”this consigns them to a life on charity. Is this not of more note than who started what?
No. The educational disaster that will leave Rachel and millions of her confreres in meaningless lives on welfare pales in importance compared to the question: Did Trayvon Martin and Zimmerman have the proper racial attitudes? This is what exercises the vast endocrine boobitry howling with empty-headed rage and self-righteousness.
