Tom Joyner offers Rachel Jeantel a scholarship…is this a waste of money?

Radio host Tom Joyner has offered Rachel Jeantel a college scholarship, but Jeantel is not yet prepared to receive it. Jeantel was the last person to talk to Trayvon Martin. She has gained noteriety since she was the star prosecution witness at the George Zimmermann trial, but is that enough to warrant a scholarship? Share your thoughts.

    Why do you think that she is not prepared to receive the scholarship? She apparently thinks she is. She said “I am educated. Trust me, I have a 3.0 I’m good.”

    The way us black folk clowned and ridiculed her was pretty sad. We like to tare our own down. Someone did something positive for her. I’m glad someone decided to give her a chance and give her a scholarship.
