I think she's Haitian. As I recall she speaks three languages.
She speaks French,English,and Creole....not bad for someone most here are trying to marginalize as mentally deficient....
Has a command of, is a different idea altogether.
Sure, but a relevant, and I think correct, argument poses that speaking black English is very different than not having command of English.
Nah, this case wasn't about race. Don't the same people who are somehow upset by this constantly proclaiming that?
Or they are just quoting Angela Corey.
And the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
Another missed point.
There is no doubt race was manufactured into this case. But the only evidence of racial prejudice came from Martin.
I wouldn't call it upsetting but sad that so many continue to defame Zimmerman over race with no evidence though.
I agree that she can marginally communicate in English. I do not know if that is due to a language deficit, or an intelligence deficit.
Observing that either may be the case, neither makes her a bad person. It just is.
The racial element - besides for the comments from some on TH like in this thread - which brought this case to national attention was the early cutting loose of GZ without charges, an incident partly explainable by lack of evidence but also possibly based on the race of the dead guy. Statistics show that black victims yield proportionally fewer prosecutions and lighter sentences than cases involving whites.
What perfect grammar is "Put Rush On It"?
Not true at all.
Thanks for confirming it was manufactured...
Hope she takes it though I doubt even Warren Buffet could pay that tutor bill. My four year old would do better on the SAT.
You are right. We have a race problem.
Spanish, Creole and English, I believe.
Her mother is Haitian (Creole) and father is Dominican (Spanish).
Personally, I wish her well.
Can't help to wonder why she is afforded with this opportunity, and many, MANY others who are more deserving (work hard in school under difficult if not impossible conditions) of this help.
To each his own.
I don't see language proficiency as a sign of intellect, necessarily.
Then again, I don't see a lack of cursive knowledge to be a sign that precludes intellect.
This is exactly right...just had French on my mind...
