When will our Government -- our Governor, Council of State, Legislature, Criminal Justice System, and the Courts -- face the facts that every thinking person knows are true? Our criminal justice system discriminates against Black men.
Just a few weeks ago another Black man barely escaped execution by our State Government because of gross mistakes and prejudice in our criminal “justice” system. That makes three North Carolina Black men in the past five months who, but for the grace of God, would have been wrongly executed in our name.
How long will we let these injustices in our name continue? When will we say Enough?
Must we expose wrongful convictions, wrongful appellate decisions, wasted decades on death row for Black men every month? Every week? When will we say Enough?
