An open letter to Skinner (POSTED IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN FORUM) [View all]

Dear Skinner:


I respectfully submit that the jury system is broken and when a jury is comprised of eighty five percent of the followers of one candidate, sitting in judgment of those whose candidate is supported by the other fifteen percent, or are undeclared, there are bound to be injustices, ergo:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=1243011


A poster called my dear friends, Bravenank and 1SBM, the N-word and 1SBM re-posted it verbatim. And for that he gets a hide. That is a grave injustice and an abomination.

I chose to bring it to your attention, here and now, because in the immortal words of Dr. King "...we can't wait."

Thank you for reading,

Respectfully,

DemocratSinceBirth

the thread in question noiretextatique Feb 2016 #246
Oh wait, you mean bravenak's thread. I get it. I didn't read that thread yet. (nt) betsuni Feb 2016 #245
yes..that part was omitted noiretextatique Feb 2016 #247
i have zero respect for this tactic noiretextatique Feb 2016 #244
this happened in an OP by bravenak claiming sanders thinks all blacks are poor noiretextatique Feb 2016 #248
what does it matter what the OP is about ? the issue here is the use of the N word towards 1sbm and JI7 Feb 2016 #249
the trolll was banned, the post was deleted noiretextatique Feb 2016 #252
I don't like my brother and sister being called the N-word by anyone and I'm white. DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #294
how do you plan to stop trolls from coming here and using the n word? noiretextatique Feb 2016 #299

honestly, that's kinda nuts noiretextatique Feb 2016 #312
How can you say due process is nuts? DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #314
because: he's guilty noiretextatique Feb 2016 #316
One can and should not be found guilty without due process... DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #321
You keep arguing around this reality noiretextatique Feb 2016 #325
There are virtually no firm rules on what can be hidden. It is a jury decision. DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #332
That's just not true. If it is egregious enough noiretextatique Feb 2016 #335
There are no firm rules... DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #344
Because: he is not a "defendant" noiretextatique Feb 2016 #348
There was a complaint made against him in the form of an alert... DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #353
There is no such rule. OilemFirchen Feb 2016 #341

Hey! Look at what the alerter I was just on a jury for gave as reason for alert: betsuni Feb 2016 #253
Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sheshe2 Feb 2016 #254
juries are selected randomly noiretextatique Feb 2016 #255
Everybody knows juries are selected randomly. betsuni Feb 2016 #262
this OP claims there is a concerted effort to silence black DUers noiretextatique Feb 2016 #267
I am bereft our brief sweet romance on the other thread was cruelly ended by a locking. betsuni Feb 2016 #293

This is the most important post I've seen. Agnosticsherbet Feb 2016 #257
riddle me this: how can a randomally selected jury be inherently baised? noiretextatique Feb 2016 #260
If 85% of your jury pool holds certgain belief, they are inherantly biased. Agnosticsherbet Feb 2016 #270
so...what is the inherent bias of DU juries? noiretextatique Feb 2016 #271
Where in the hell did you read that? leftofcool Feb 2016 #274
take a moment from reactionary outrage, and read noiretextatique Feb 2016 #301
We are discussing a jury system that biases the outcome in favore of the majority's narrow ideology. Agnosticsherbet Feb 2016 #317
it was not a problem until now noiretextatique Feb 2016 #320
I think when a majority, whether benign or malign or neither, controls a system Agnosticsherbet Feb 2016 #365
i agree it is a possibility noiretextatique Feb 2016 #377
The inherent bias is against 1SBM. OilemFirchen Feb 2016 #337
The same way a randomly selected jury pool from the antebellum south... DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #297
so...every white person here is racist? noiretextatique Feb 2016 #303
I would never suggest every white person here is racist. DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #306
so only the 85% who supporter sanders are racist? you may have a point noiretextatique Feb 2016 #310
Respectfully, that isn't what I am suggesting. DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #313
and i respectfully disagree noiretextatique Feb 2016 #315
That is not what I am suggesting DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #319
He is not a "defendant"...he's a poster noiretextatique Feb 2016 #339
Of course I would... Fairness is a hill I would die on. DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #340
okay noiretextatique Feb 2016 #379
The race of the poster is ancillary. The candidate he or she supports is salient. DemocratSinceBirth Feb 2016 #380
perhaps it is the bullshit posters noiretextatique Feb 2016 #389
