“The Fly Jock”, Tom Joyner headed to CNN last night to talk with evening talk show host Piers Morgan about offering Rachel Jeantel a full ride scholarship to any HBCU, Rush Limbaugh using the N-word and more.
In case you missed it, the DJ offered Rachel Jeantel, the friend of Trayvon Martin who took the stand as a key witness in the trial of George Zimmerman, a full ride scholarship to the HBCU of her choice. His offer also included tutoring to complete high school and assistance in preparing for the SAT test to get into college. Joyner reached out to Jeantel after witnessing her testimony on national television as she recounted her conversation with Trayvon Martin, which turned out to be his last phone call before being killed by George Zimmerman.
