Racism?

While normally I am skeptical of claims of "institutional racism" and "white privilege," the Genarlow Wilson case does seem to me to be an example, unless there are some important facts that I am missing.

Not that this could not happen to a white person, but I would not be surprised if his race were a factor in the apparent fanaticism to keep him behind bars.

(I would also concede this in the Cory Maye case, which I have previously blogged about).

That is all.
