    I don't see the problem.

    The article assumes that the jurors themselves aren't racist. I'd be willing to bet my soul that a black juror from Compton is more racist against whites than a white juror from Beverly Hills is against blacks.

    Both the prosecutor and the defense attorney get to remove jurors. Seems fair.

    But like everything else liberal......it's all about race.

    Jurors, judges and attorneys are human. Any attempt to "fix" this is futile.

    Few decades back a former football player killed his ex, and a friend of hers. Then tried to flee in a white Bronco.
    The immediate response from all vocal ( people of color) was he was innocent. A hero, should NOT even have been considered a suspect...

    Among white folks. Guess he had means, motive, oppertunity. It's possible. Maybe he is innocent? One race (at least the public response) was he is innocent. Whites "his actions point to guilt" but it was unknown.
    Same today. If suspect shot by the Police is Black. It's murder, riots... Never mind the facts. The media encourages this.
    I watched a Spider-Man DVD the other day. J?J. Jameson says somethin about Spider-Man a menace for front page. Peter Parker objects as that's not what happened. J.J replies I decide what the news is, and what sells papers....
    40 yrs ago many whites voted, decided by race (and mist none whites did as well. Today most whites don't care about race. But care about the person. Non whites are still locked more into race.
    I didn't vote for Obamma. But not because of his race. But because of who he is. Black leaders said to vote for him because he is black. Well congratulations race relations have been set back decades.

    When you're a racist (looking at you, Jammer) then everything looks racist to you.

    I think after we build the Southern wall. We look at enclosing sanctuary cities. Escape from NY was not a terrible idea.
    I was thinking remote dessert might be better.

    How many bitter, racist threads can the OP start in one day? He must be feeling disenfranchised or something. So sad.

    I have always wanted to be on a Jury. Every time, I go to jury duty, I never get picked. A lot of people run away from jury duty, not me. I get paid to go.

    :cool:

    While the pursuit of totally unbiased juries is a lofty goal, it simply is not possible in a world filled with imperfect beings. THBS, I took issue with this portion of the article "In a system that already disproportionately prosecutes people of color,"...the "System" would not disproportionately prosecute any such group if said group were not committing crimes... in this case, decades long studies of FBI UCR reports reveal "minorities, specifically African Americans" commit the majority of ALL crimes in the US, way above their percentage within the larger population...don't commit the crime, and your people will not be prosecuted...

    Can you read? It says jury selection is racist. Not racist jury. But it will surely work either way, OJ.

    I am not sure I understand what motivates all kinds of people to see racism under pinning in everything.

    If you believe racism is Everywhere, and you start looking for racism, then you will find it everywhere.

    Dark chocolate vs white chocolate.... racist

    I am dream of a white Christmas... racist

    Pot calling the kettle black...
    Racist

    The list of absurd things that are claimed to be racist is staggering.

    I think I was paid $7 for my 3 hours. But I’d do it for free. Unfortunately my employment history, friends and contacts in Law Enforcement, my degree, will probably keep me from ever serving on a jury, at least here where I’m located.

    The answer is simple. Only racists see racism everywhere. Hey are incapable of examining situations on their own, looking at only the facts of that particular story. They assign each skin tone a set of values and characteristics and believe everyone with that skin tone thinks and believes what they imagined in their own mind.


    It’s why libs get hysterical over black conservatives. It is incompatible with their world view that a black woman could think or act any other way than their imagined stereotype. To them, it’s like watching a bird fly backwards. It’s inconceivable in their own prejudiced and simple minds that people can do different things and still have the same skin tone.

    I have the same problem. I am employed and I am a business owner, I have an extensive education, I am a former law-enforcement officer, and so on. I am not the sort of person defense attorneys want on the jury.

    Meanwhile, my city finds it to be nearly impossible to get blacks to show up for jury duty. It has been a thing for decades and there are regular media reports on it locally. Blacks around here simply refuse to engage in jury duty. I gather that other cities around the country have the same problem.
