would you believe it ? he is a black man.


indeed
there are more black men than white men on death row in Alabama
since 2000, roughly twice as many white people have been executed in Alabama as black people
It seems that if you are on death row in Alabama, you are more than twice as likely to actually be executed if you are white than if you are black.
It is therefore no surprise that a black man is freed.
White guys on death row are screwed. Black guys might get freed.


capital punishment is wrong. however, the population of alabama is 75%white yet the number of people killed by the state is almost evenly split between white and black. if you are black you are statistically more likely to be screwed.


Racism to blame
knowledge comes, wisdom lingers
