36. i don't equate the death penalty with racism,
Edited on Tue Mar-14-06 02:44 PM by bettyellen
to be quite honest, i equate it with testosterone, with fleeting anger. since it ain't even close to the punishment for rape, i don't take it all that serious.
it's an overreaction to a horrible story, it's facinating to me how often men call for the death penalty for rapes when it's so very far from the reality of how sex crimes are handled in this country.
and you're dead wrong, i am actually against the death penalty, for several reasons, including that it is both racist and punishes the impoverished inequitably.
