Bias CLE 599 to 1
Saturday, April 30, 2005

This PBS documentary
highlights the problem with blanket accusations of bias. In the infamous Scottsboro case, young black men and boys were accused of raping two white women. How do we make broad statements about how groups are treated by the "system"? Is this a rape case, telling us about how women victims are not taken seriously? Or is it a lynching of blacks, telling us about racial injustice in the legal system?
