Supreme Court 7 - 2 decision in Louisiana death penalty case

But I know that the vote of nine out of 10 black Americans for the Democratic Party or for leftist kinds of policies just is not reflective of their opinions.
~ Clarence Thomas

Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia were against today's decision (NO BIG SURPRISE) involving an African-American juror that was unfairly excluded from a murder trial.

By no means am I advocating letting a murderer roam the streets all willy nilly waiting on his next victim. I have a problem with a justice system that dismisses jurors based on bias. Just because the accused is a black man doesn't mean that the juror can't use sound judgement in the case. Please note that all black people are not a monolithic race that follow in lock step.

***For further reference look no further than Clarence Thomas.***
