You're so right. The justice system is utterly color blind and so are the people sending death threats to the black judge calling her the N word. No worries...we've solved it all, and the dozens of studies and stark reality of the damaging statistics demonstrating otherwise are all utter nonsense.
My biases here were dealt with 14 years ago BTW.
