Given yesterday's verdict in the State of Florida v.

Michael Dunn the case concluded with a hung jury with the white 47 yr old Dunn fatally shooting the 17 yr old black Jordan Davis over "music being too loud." In this case the jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict and what's more, is that the charges they could agree on were those far less than the State had asked for which were 1st or 2nd degree murder. A new trial will now need to held.

In July 2013, the Hispanic George Zimmerman in the case of State of Florida v. George Zimmerman was acquitted of fatally shooting 17 yr old black Trayvon Martin on his way back from a convenience store, who was unarmed and only bringing back candy.

In December 2013, the State of Texas v. Keller, a white 16 yr old teen was given 10 yrs of probation for killing four people and injuring several more in a rehabilitation facility costing his parents (thankfully not taxpayers) $450,000.00 US. a year. The teen, whose lawyer successfully argued an "affluenza defense" claimed he was so wealthy he had no idea of the consequences of his actions. He will not serve a single day in jail - for killing four people.

In California, a 33 yr old black man has been sentenced to 17 yrs in prison for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. He has exhausted nearly all appeals and most likely will have to serve all of his sentence.

Is THIS justice? Why are whites or say even a Hispanic able to retain justice over that of blacks? Why do you think our society is still functioning this way? What accounts for this?
