Black judge dismisses all white jury

A black judge dismiss the entire jury because they were all white. The black judge was concerned that the jury didn’t represent the defendant’s peers. It is a correct assessment of the situation but you rarely see it happen. Black people in america sent to prison way too often by a jury with no black members at all. The lifestyles between a black person in america and a white person in america are too different, we need to have more representation in juries across america. Black people account for over 34% of the total prison population so we need at lease 34% of the jury population also.
