  • Everyone is NOT equal. That is the problem. Though Americans love to quote "all men were created equal" in fact humans are individual and unique and certainly NOT equal. If we were all equal we would be clones. If we were all equal we could all do exactly the same things, run the same speed, lift the same weight, figure out the same math problems, and prefer the same brand of soft drink. The issue is we are NOT equal -- we are all unique and unequal.
  • The lawyer is correct, especially seeing as there are people paid a hell of a lot of money in high power cases to choose the jury. And although all men are equal in worth, all men are not equal in anything else. Skin colour does undeniably affect the way we think of other people, and by this I mean both our skin colour and theirs.

And the all white jury agreed...", Bob Dylan.
  • Is he implying white Americans are racist?
  • he might be right
  • If he was judged by a jury of his peers, he most likely got a fair trial. If none of them were black, then the lawyers are ASSUMING that he didn't get a fail trial from white folks, because we all know that only white folks can be racist. Really, if he was convicted, it had to be because of his race, right? I'm sure it had nothing to do with the facts of the case.
