From Yahoo!:Study Finds Racial Imbalance on Death Row
I can only assume that the reason we have so many studies that say this, and no solution in sight, is that most people don't care.
Think about it: If black people are more likely to be put on death row, that means there are a decent number of people out there who find it more acceptable to execute black people than white people. Is it any wonder people in this day and age still think it's OK to deny service to black people in restaurants, etc.?
Racists and/or bigots need to be shunned (ass kicking would be good too, but they're legally entitled to their stupid assholish opinions). If you know somebody (black OR white) who makes racist remarks or expresses racist sentiments, you need to call bullshit on them (to their face, every time) and/or stop associating with them. To do any different makes them think, at best, that you don't care, or at worst that you agree with them.
Next post...well, I don't know, but something light.
