That translates into disparities in the nation's courtrooms. Non-whites are more likely to be convicted due to their skin tone, the studies conclude.
The reason? White jurors are unconsciously racists.
From our source we read:
In the new study, just published in the N.Y.U. Law Review, the researchers set out to explore whether unconscious racism accounts for continuing racial disparities in death-penalty decisions. To do so, they surveyed jury eligible citizens in six states and found that the majority of these citizens had moderate to strong unconscious biases – based on race – that relate to how they value human life.
"These study results are obviously troubling, but it could explain a lot about why racial disparities are still so prevalent in America," said Professor Justin D. Levinson of the UH William S. Richardson School of Law and the lead author of the article. "If people indeed associate value with white citizens and lack of worth with black citizens, despite their best intentions, it opens up a whole new dialogue about inequality and what to do about it."
With overt racism all but obliterated, cultural Marxism must scratch beneath the surface.
Others studies have demonstrated that juries are partial to attractive people. Similarly, defense attorneys find it beneficial for their clients to appear in business attire or cardigan sweaters as a means to affect the outcomes of trials.
