JUSTICE

Marcus Lacewell (www.lacewellstrep.com)

It is a commonly statement, by the U.S. government, that Justice is blind. This statement is so common that there has been statues, paintings, monuments, etc. erected, around this country, that are branded with it. Yet, like many other national statements (Ex. 'In God We Trust' and the statement on the Statue of Liberty), our actions show the opposite. The Racial Justice Act (RJA) directly proves that justice is not blind.
Under the provisions of the North Carolina Racial Justice Act, passed in 2009 and one of only two such statutes in the nation, allows death-row inmates to present evidence that race influenced their sentencing process. Instead, they will spend the rest of their lives in prison without the possibility of parole.
Yet, the North Carolina House and Senate voted to repeal the state’s historic Racial Justice Act by no longer allowing individuals to use statewide statistics in order to demonstrate racial bias in our state's capital punishment system.
In response, ACLU-NC stated, "This is a sad day for justice and for North Carolina. By gutting the Racial Justice Act, our legislature has turned its back on the overwhelming evidence of racial bias in our state’s death penalty system. Politicians have decided they would rather sweep disturbing information under the rug than work to ensure that racial bias plays no role in North Carolina’s death penalty."

So, why does the government still say that justice is blind. Has the law really changed. Compare governmental decisions, of the past, and today's 'justice' (maybe The Dred Scott Decision). I thought that justice was a term that meant fairness. It seems that the government takes one step forward, with a black president, then two steps back. Does the government really want justice (fairness)? Unlearn.

Justice is for everyone. We all deserve to fight for ourselves. Always put in your mind that you must be in the right side as you fight for yourself. Some people lacks in having the personal will to fight, but this should inspire people to work with sincerity. I believe this can help people to know their state. I firmly believe that they can have the things that they want if they work hard for it with patience and dedication.
