Well, it seems to me that if you are in a case and you are the defendant you would want someone who will win your case, regardless of what race they are. Better is better when it comes to trial.

Because someone can't possibly be a minority and a good attorney, right Vinny?
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.

If you knew anything about biglaw then you'd know that their cases rarely go to trial.

You are very insecure for an allegedly successful URM law student.

That isn't what he said, and you know it.
Vinny is a girl.
And this is the general theme of all of her posts.

Disagreeing w/Vinny makes me insecure?

That is NOT waht the majority of all my posts say. And you are definitly reading it wrong. I said exactly what I mean, and I was not talking about "biglaw." Say you were arrested for murder and you did it, you would want the best lawyer you could get and I really doubt that race would come into play, you would want the person that can win your case.
