Racial prejudice rears it's head

So yet another one of the left's favourite myths has gone up in a puff of smoke.

A study has found that black defendants, far from being more likely to be discriminated against in jury trials, receive an easier ride from jurors than white defendants.

The study, carried out for the Ministry of Justice, showed black and minority ethnic jurors were "significantly less likely'' to convict a black or Asian defendant than a white defendant in certain types of case.

What the study did find, however, is that ethnic minorities do tend to discriminate against white defendants.

"Ethnic minority jurors showed same-race leniency towards ethnic minority defendants and were significantly less likely to vote to convict an ethnic minority defendant than a white defendant,'' it said.

Time to end this charade.
