More on the woman who was punished and given a sentence of “indefinite jury duty”, a.k.a., her freedom to think, speak and go about her business was restricted, at one judge’s discretion — in America — for saying that “you always see blacks and Hispanics in trouble on television”:
First, the question says “name three people” you don’t like, and the woman answered with three ethnic groups–which would be the answer to “name three peoples“ you don’t like, an easy mistake for someone for whom English is a second language to make.
Second, Asians as a group tend to be more racist than white Americans–which I suppose would strike some people a racist statement, but it’s actually an expression of Asian culture. Japan and China are very monocultural, and their people aren’t brought up to think racism is wrong. Rather, they’re brought up to think foreigners are wrong.
Third, Asians are often victims of crime and harassment by blacks and Hispanics.
PS: “diversity” means… an unworkable justice system!
Interestingly enough, the article detailed that over half of the thousands of jurors summoned for the case were struck down, with a sizable proportion being dismissed due to a language barrier.
That’s a nice euphemism for saying that a large portion of Brooklyn’s population cannot function in our legal system because they cannot speak English comprehensibly. So much for assimilation, but I guess Judge Garaufis would rather spend his time castigating evil racists than ponder just where his community is heading.
