53. Well the Civil Rights Office feels differently

Since they have opened an investigation into the case. As the article says, the laws were promoted by the the NRA, ALEC, and (I know from other readings) the Koch brothers. These are among the most powerful and most reactionary forces in the nation. To pretend this is about protecting women subject to rape or battery is absurd because that is not how the law is applied. Do you know of this case? http://www.democraticunderground.com/10023250910

This African-American woman got 20 years for firing a gun over the head of her abusive husband. Zimmerman got off scott free for killing an African-American teenager.

There is no question the policing and legal system is racist to its core. To create a law which essentially legalizes hunting down black men, however, is not only profoundly racist and disturbing, it's a civil rights and human rights violation. It's like pretending race is tangential to the death penalty. Oh well, society is racist. So what if we kill African Americans at a disproportionate rate. That's how it goes. SYG frees racists to hunt down black men, and that is precisely what they have done.
