America is becoming more and more racist
America isn't becoming any more racist but racists in America are becoming more and more vocal
America is no more or less racist today that it has ever been
America is not a racist country and never has been
I deal with discrimination cases. Very few employers will admit that they fired someone because they are black, female, white, disabled or over 40. However, if the reason they give for their employment decision is clearly specious than it is prational for the jury to conclude that discrimination was the true motive
when politicians give BS arguments that have continually been shot down as factually devoid, then presuming a more nefarious reason is rather valid
If a law has a disparate impact on a group that is a prima facie case of racial discrimination. Now sometimes that disparate impact can be rebutted. In my opinion it has not been in the crack/powder sentencing disparity
If I take that same half-ounce slug and fire it at 700 fps at that same head, I'm looking at a life sentence in prison.
But, hell, it's the same damn material.
It's just racist that shooting it through a gun is treated differently under the law than lobbing sinkers at people.
