The racist troll Mott-the-Hoopie ignores the fact that a rich white woman is much less
likely than a poor black man to be executed WHEN convicted of the similar crime of murder.
In the USA, it's much less common for a white person to be executed when convicted
of murdering only non-white people than for a non-white person to be executed
when convicted of murdering any white people.
"In Los Angeles, only people of color are sentenced to death
The county’s prosecutor has won death sentences for 22 defendants,
none of them white, report shows."
"Under Lacey’s tenure, which began in 2012, zero white defendants have been
sentenced to death, and her capital punishment sentences disproportionately
targeted cases involving white victims. Although 12% of homicide victims in LA
county are white, 36% of Lacey’s death penalty wins involved white victims.
Of the 22 defendants sentenced under Lacey, 13 were Latino, eight were black and one was Asian."
"Lacey has also faced intense scrutiny for her refusal to prosecute police officers
who kill civilians, even in the most egregious circumstances."
