Around the moronosphere in 60 minutes 4/13/09

Just One Minute - The Meltdown Of The Stevens Case - Tom Maguire draws some inferences from the race of the jury and the lead prosecutor, Brenda Morris. i.e. That the jury convicted Stevens because they were majority black and that the lead prosecutor was black. Since the jury was majority black and the prosecutor was black they had natural trust for each other and since they were all black they were probably liberal and inclined to convict Stevens. At least that's how I read his piece. I don't think he has the evidence to back that up and it's the same kind of race baiting that Al Sharpton engages in. It's wrong when we do it too.
