BB, keep in mind the AA media panelists cannot get too far out of the fold remember who signs their paychecks. I for one do not trust the media moguls, too much control over what the masses, you and I get to read, see and hear. Let them tell it we are all welfare queens, rump shaking, drug dealing gang bangers. We know better. Worse yet when you even speak to the press, they will print what sells papers not the words that come out of your mouth. I had jury duty on a six week murder trial several years back, I in fact hung the jury being as I did not believe the young black man on trial committed a string of crimes and murders. Everyone else on the jury was white. One white fella, I won't call him a man, wanted to convict as soon as we arrived to deliberate. He was like a man dog, another was asleep in the jury box. Others in the jury room thought he was innocent but would vote with the rest, I alone held out, I was interviewed by a sistah who worked for the local rag and relayed the goings on in the jury room after the hung verdict came in. She did not report one thing I said...I learned a big lesson there. Needless to say the young man was tried again by an all white jury and is now serving life.
