Racial Divide on Jackson

June 14, 2005 at 7:16pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Perhaps I am being naive, but I’m really surprised by the news that reactions to the Michael Jackson verdict are divided by race. Whites believe the wrong verdict was reached by a margin of 2-1; for blocks, the opposite is true.

I must hang out with the wrong people because nearly everybody I have spoken with has said something along the lines of “He’s nuts, but he ain’t guilty.” All but one of those persons is white.

Am I surrounded by statistically anomalous friends, family, and co-workers? Or am I just not correctly picking up on peoples’ real feelings about the case?
