Re: “Lee County justice: the mistrial of Curtis Vance

Racism is a sickness and the writer in my opinion is a racist. If we going to speak against racism, address it from both sides. Don't wait until it hit close to home and try to do a story on it! Read some of my examples below, I could've went on and fill up this whole blog, but you will get the picture.

On March 21,2011
ABBEVILLE, Ala. — Black and white leaders from a rural southeast Alabama community apologized Monday to relatives of a black woman raped in 1944 by a gang of white men who escaped prosecution because of what officials described as police bungling and racism.

Now 91, Taylor was 24 and living in her native Henry County when she was gang-raped in Abbeville in 1944. The married woman was walking home from church when she was abducted, assaulted and left on the side of the road in an isolated area.

Two all-white, all-male grand juries declined to bring charges.

Present Day
POTTSVILLE, Pa. — Prosecutors called the beating death of an illegal immigrant from Mexico a hate crime, and they urged an all-white jury in Pennsylvania coal country to punish two white teenagers for their roles in the attack.

Instead, the jury found the teens innocent of all serious charges, a decision that elicited cheers and claps from the defendants' families and friends — and cries of outrage from the victim's.

August 28, 1955 · Money, Mississippi
Emmett Louis Till, a 14-year-old boy on vacation from Chicago, reportedly flirted with a white woman in a store. Three nights later, two men took Till from his bed, beat him, shot him and dumped his body in the Tallahatchie River. An all-white jury found the men innocent of murder.
