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?
