EVE CONANT (NEWSWEEK): BLACK AND WHITE

New findings that "blacks on death row convicted of killing whites are more likely to be executed than whites who kill minorities"—and that "blacks who kill other minorities are less likely to be executed than blacks who kill whites." Shouldn't a story like this—an old story reconfirmed by a new study—spark a spate of reports questioning Chief Supreme Court Justice John Roberts claims about "colorblind" justice? Conant's report stands instead in stark contrast to major media's uncritical conveyance of Roberts' language, which is "loaded with historic, legal and social baggage."
