If current political trends continue, the days when whites can get a fair trial in this country are numbered. In the most liberal areas they may already have ended:
Retired Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Frank Barbaro wants a white man he convicted in 1999 of killing a black man to be freed — claiming Wednesday he based the verdict on his own reverse racism. The 86-year-old former jurist convicted Donald Kagan, now 39, of fatally shooting Wavell Wint, 22, during a struggle over Kagan’s chain outside an East New York movie theater in 1998.
He says he didn’t consider self-defense as a justification due to the moonbat politics that came with being a civil rights activist.
“Mr. Kagan had no intent to kill that man … I believe now that I was seeing this young white fellow as a bigot, as someone who assassinated an African-American,” Barbaro, a former longshoreman who also served 23 years in the state Assembly, told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice ShawnDya Simpson. …
Barbaro said his work during the civil-rights movement fed into his bias in the trial.
“The question of discrimination against African-American people became part of my fiber — my very fiber,” he told Simpson.
The same goes for the entire liberal establishment, which includes the judiciary, so the political prisoner Kagan is hardly guaranteed to be set free, even after this revelation. If his fate rests in the hands of ShawnDya Simpson — a judge of color known for wielding the gavel in a lime green suit — pray for him.
Yet again we see that justice and social justice are mutually exclusive terms.
