The "Racial Justice Act": Using the

Race Card to Exonerate Death Row

Criminals



First of all, WHAT is the "Racial Justice Act"...?


North Carolina took a big step forward in its efforts to eradicate racism in our justice system with a newly enacted law, The NC Racial Justice Act. The law will allow people facing the death penalty to present evidence of racial bias, including statistics, in court. No one, supporters or opponents of capital punishment, wants racial discrimination to be a factor in the courtroom.

Read The Racial Justice Act Here

Why did we need the Racial Justice Act in the first place?

To ensure the fairness and integrity of our system, and to help prevent more innocent African-American defendants from being wrongly sentenced to death. In the last two years, three African-American inmates were exonerated from North Carolina’s death row. The Racial Justice Act helps ensure that no one is sentenced to death based on the color of their skin, or the skin color of the victim.

A recent comprehensive study on race and the death penalty in North Carolina found that the odds of getting a death sentence increase three and a half times if the victim is white rather than a person of color. (“Race and the Death Penalty in North Carolina” Dr. Isaac Unah, Professor John C. Boger, UNC-Chapel Hill, April 16, 2001). Similar findings exist in many other studies across the country.


So, essentially, this is the Get Out of Jail Free Race Card for black death row inmates.

More precisely, it is a perpetuation of RACISM into the 21st Century. Yeah, when you use race or skin pigmentation for your political agenda, you're a RACIST. And that's what the so-called Racial Justice Act is all about. It IS racism.

Look at the premise of this act: To prevent more INNOCENT African Americans from being wrongly sentenced to Death.

How about an act to prevent EVERYONE from being wrongly sentenced to Death Row?

You see the problem, then? Our judicial system IS the means to prevent EVERYONE from being wrongly sentenced.

No, we DO NOT NEED a piece of legislation designed specifically to spring black inmates from Death Row. That's pure racism. It's a slap in the face of the Justice System. In the same way that so-called "Hate Crime Law" is a slap in the face of the Judicial System.

Just line this up with Affirmative Action in the "equality isn't going to happen anytime soon" category.

What about the whites on death row? Oh yea can't have a law protecting only whites that'd be racist.

Pretty soon, you can just accuse somebody of being racist.

That should be enough to have them put away.

Everybody get out your torches its time to go lynching.

You've hit the nail on the head.

I've been saying similiar things for years.

By the way, before anyone cries, "Reverse Racism!". There is no such thing...only racism.

Period.

It's all part of the socialist party platform.

socialistparty-usa.org...

The Socialist Party stands for the abolition of every form of domination and exploitation, whether based on social class, gender, race/ethnicity, age, education, sexual orientation, or other characteristics.


But thats not the worst of it. There are added protections for women, children and minorities, but not men and especially not white men.

Read through the platform links.

Exactly. When we fine tune our Justice System to keep EVERYONE out of jail, based on their skin pigmentation, their ethnic background, and our ASSUMPTION that they have suffered enough, then we've just overridden the PURPOSE of the Justice System.

And, yeah, I understand that this is NOT about "fairness" or "justice"... It's about UNDERMINING the current Justice System. It's about UNDERMINING the Constitution of the United States.

It's an initiative to destroy our SUPERIOR American System. Face it, everything we're enduring right now is an attempt of the HAVE-NOTS to destroy the system of the HAVES. The United States has the most advanced and successful system in the WORLD, as well as THE MOST MONEY (188 Trillion Dollars in assets).

What we're seeing now, particularly under this Congress and Executive administration, is a DEMOLITION of what WORKS.

I fear you are right.

Everything I have looked into and researched just tells me that those without, want what those of us have.

Basic human instinct.

But now the Government is exploiting that weakness and furthering a divide. (To be truthful, I actually think it has been going on for quite awhile.)

Hi long time reader, first time poster.
Personally I find all these accusations of racism disgusting.
I mean Honestly think about it.
In the 1960's all white countries and only white countries opened their borders to massive non-white immigration.
Then governments and media told us all to "assimilate" or "mix together."
Now those same governments are telling us that by the year 2040, there won't be a single white majority nation left on the planet and that this is "good."
If this was done to all black countries and only black countries, people would quickly recognize it as the genocide it is.
"Anti-racism" is a codeword for anti-white.

Well, the 2040 U.S. Census projection is not based on birth rates, it's not about one race baby-booming while another race is declining; rather, it's based on the migration of various ethnic groups around the globe.

So, like, by 2040, the Mexican-American population will have tripled over what it was in 2009, for example — but that's not because Mexican-Americans are baby-booming, it's because the U.S. Census realistically acknowledges that the USA is going to grant amnesty and instant citizenship to some 20 million illegal aliens, okay?

The U.S. Census 2040 projection was that ALL COMBINED MINORITIES would outnumber Caucasians, right. We're talking about all Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans, Black Americans and other minorities combined.

In point of fact, the Black American population is only going to grow by about 1% over the next 28 years.

As far as birth-rate goes, there are no minority baby-booms expected; and, no, the Caucasians aren't "dying out" — that's all racist rhetoric. The shift in populations is all about immigration and naturalization in an era of globalization.

In short, TPTB want us to be a more homogenous population. But homogenous is NOT good. When we sacrifice our diversity and our respective ethnic cultures, we LOSE our identity, our pride, we become DRONES.

This is what you get with multiCULTuralism; in non-White countries there are no crazy "anti-racists" demanding "minority" races get special rights and privileges, while other "anti-racists" call the people who demanded these special rights and privileges the R-WORD. It's really sick how you "anti-racists" ride this merry-go-round while White children and ONLY White children are slated to become minorities in all the countries our people, White People built, and are told they must celebrate the inevitable brown future and that if they don't "assimilate" with the global herd of third worlders that have been foisted upon them and ONLY them, they are "evil-racists", and if they object to this genocide-by-assimilation via mass non-White immigration and FORCED integration they are called a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews! Oh yes, it's quite obvious, anti-racist is a code word for anti-White - any which way you want to slice it.

Last time i checked is the people get convicted in a court of law based on evidence produced then convicted by a jury of their peers.

What the hell does race have to do with anything? absolutely nothing which means this is geared toward the african american and hispanic conviction the only people it doesn't apply to are whites.

Which means politics married with the judicial system justice is suppose to be blind and never fear here's the legislation to ensure it's anything but.

Well, on TV, in the Race Card universe, blacks automatically cry racism as a defense mechanism. It's just a given. Doesn't matter if there's an element of discrimination or not. Just throw it in there to complicate the process.

However, I've sat through many a court case, and I've never heard any defendant make a declaration of racial discrimination.

I mean, I've seen the black guys get up there, in their orange jumpsuits, shackled hand and foot, surrounded by officers black and white and brown, and they ACKNOWLEDGE the crime.

"Yes, I committed that crime, but..." and then comes the extenuating circumstances, right?

Not only extenuating circumstances, but pleas to the judge — "Yes, I committed that crime, but I've been clean and sober for 3 weeks and I have a job opportunity and I'm trying to clean up my act," for example.

Right. I mean, I've sat in on I don't know HOW many criminal court cases, but enough that it has become routine to hear the defendant say "I committed the crime, BUT..."

I never hear them say anything about police brutality or race discrimination. And I'm right here in North Carolina, where all this "racial justice" nonsense is transpiring.

See, these "racial justice" laws are extraneous, at best, and are DANGEROUS, at worst. When you allow racial sensitivity into politics or the judicial system, it's not like fine tuning the system. It's more like throwing a monkeywrench into the mechanism (pardon the obvious pun).

Let's just face it, the Race Card is intended to SPRING guilty defendants. The Race Card is a legal tool — nay, a legal weapon.

I think you are arguing over issues that don't even matter to the point I'm trying to make.

I understand your racist concerns perfectly well. You're worried that the "White Race" is on the decline, because being White isn't politically correct or fashionable.

Stop worrying. Who do you think is running the world? What is the racial makeup of The Powers That Be? How many underprivileged minorities are members of the Bilderberg, the Rothschilds, or the Trilateral Commission?

Gimmy a break.

Those groups you mentioned are obviously anti-white. They are promoting the genocide of white children and they need to be punished as international law demands: either they undo the damage they have done or get hanged.

So don't try and tell me that those groups are looking out for the interests of white children. They are a bunch of genocidal freaks and deserve to be treated as such.

Are you honestly going to try and defend them?
If so I could only conclude that you are anti-white.

Most definitely, "Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White."

The preferential considerations given non-whites today are just small "bites against Whites," compared to the larger anti-White program of flooding every White country with non-Whites while screaming "r-word! r-word! r-word!" at all Whites who object to this program of blending their race out of existence.

The diversity in this world that another poster speaks of can be maintained only by NOT mixing together the diverse peoples of the world in the individual nations of the world.

That will end diversity among humans as surely as it would end diversity among the varieties of white-tailed deer that have evolved in the environmentally different valleys of the Great Smoky Mountains of Appalachia.

Bring all those varieties of white-tailed deer out of the separate valleys they evolved in and mix them together in a single location, and in a few generations there will be only ONE blended "variety" of white-tailed deer.

"If you're posting links to other sites or videos, please include your commentary on how the video is relevant to the discussion."

I'm sorry, I assumed the relevance of my link would be obvious, but I'll follow your instructions more precisely in the future.

My post contained this phrase,

"...the larger anti-White program of flooding every White country with non-Whites while screaming 'r-word! r-word! r-word!' at all Whites who object to this program of blending their race out of existence."

Under the "About" tab at White GeNOcide Project are brief statements that elaborate the connection I made in the rest of my post between opening a country's borders and committing genocide on the race within.

Included are this statement by Malcolm Fraser, the Prime Minister of Australia 1975-1983,

"Genocide involves the attempt to achieve the disappearance of a group by whatever means. It does not have to be violent, it could be a combination of policies that would lead to a certain group dying out,"

Also included is this statement by Rafael Lemkin, who coined the term genocide and was the principal architect of the the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide,

“Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.”

The 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Article II, reads as follows:

"In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group as such: (a) ...(b)...(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d)...(e)..."

White GeNOcide Project includes this and other material as reference, and is a site that discusses the various aspects of White Genocide as reported in the daily news.

OP, did you read the last paragraph of your own source? It said that a comprehensive study found that a person of color was 3 times more likely to get the death penalty than whites; in North Carolina.

When these people were being unfairly convicted to death, because their skin wasn't white, where were you? Obviously the race card played a factor in those cases, but where were you to cry foul?

Now North Carolina wants to right it's past wrongs and give persons of color a fair trail and you are disgusted? Am I getting this right?

WOW

You, and people like you, are a dying breed and that's the only reason you all make threads like this. So you all can sit around and cry your racist boy blues. You are miserable, aren't you? Can't blame you, really....Your government, whites, by the way (Obama is a puppet), are screwing you to high noon....hispanics will be the majority in about five years and your dollar is worth jack. I guess if I was racist, I'd be mad too.

Luckily though, I had parents that wore shoes and taught me that God created us ALL, and that race is irrevelant to the big picture.

Don't let me stop you all though. I hear that racist circle jerks are the best circle jerks out there. Don't get too sticky though.
