Default Black Activist gets REMOVED from jury pool; Prosecuter who removed her: FIRED

Here's another example of the cultural hypocrisy in America today:

During the May 19-20 jury selection proceedings, Brand was serving as the lead state attorney in a robbery trial for convicted killer Darius Lovings.



Brand argued that he had scratched a candidate from the juror list as she had been the only person to say she wanted to serve on the jury, she was a member of the NAACP and she had posted on her Facebook page a comment and link referring to the "Negro Motorist Green Book," a guide to safe travel for African-Americans during the Jim Crow era, according to the transcripts.



The link caused him concern, Brand told a judge sitting in for District Judge Julie Kocurek: "Because had the situation been reversed, if it was a white person with something, saying, 'Hey, here's a website to look at on why white people should stay out of certain neighborhoods,' that would cause me concern, and I would strike that person for that reason."



The next day he told Kocurek: "It's not because of race. It's because in part she appeared to be an activist, and that's what we don't want. Just as if she was white, we wouldn't want a white activist or a white supremacist."
