News Discussion / Re: WHAT???!!!!!

I dont think that data say whatever you want them to say necessarily.  If that were true then there would be no reason to collect data ever. 

why dont you inspect the data and show us what YOU want it to say.  it seems pretty clear that if the vic was white and the def was black as opposed to white, the DA is substantially more likely to go after the DP.  That is consistent with the fact the vast majority of DAs are white, dont you think?



That's a big leap. is there no other possible conclusion? could there not have been other factors involved, such as the fact that perhaps those murders committed by the black defendants were particularly heinous and deserving of the DP for reasons having nothing to do with race? i'm not saying they were, i'm just saying that it's possible that there were other things involved.

she probably doesn't even believe all of those things. she makes a fortune from saying crazy things and being a shrieking harpy and getting people to react to her. the more attention you pay to her, the stronger she gets.

1. the DA's are not incapable, but uninclined

2.  the data is what implies this, not BP

3. HTH

well, data can say pretty much whatever you want it to. But I still don't see how most DAs being white means the system is automatically racist.

1)   98% of chief District Attorneys in death penalty states are white.

Does this imply that white DAs are incapable of fairly prosecuting black people?

What's with all the hypotheticals? Why not just tell the real story?

The learned idealistic man in today's society can only hope for happiness if he marries one of the two: fat, ugly girls or Asian women, both of which are sympathetic and worldly-wise.

you're joking, right?

if not, well...good luck with that.
