I thought that I would write a quick post today since I’ve been sick, and I found a story that I really wanted to just get your opinion about. We all know the story of Trayvon Martin. The African American teenager was shot by George Zimmerman after they got in a confrontation one night in Florida. While Zimmerman claims he acted in self-defense, Martin’s family believe that he was the victim of a racially motivated murder, and George Zimmerman is now being charged with second degree murder.
Today, the jury for Zimmerman’s upcoming trial was revealed, and it consisted of all females (save for two alternates who are male). Additionally, all but one of the jury members are white, and the race of the nonwhite jury member is not specified. So, after hearing all this, do you think that Zimmerman’s chances of getting convicted are better or worse with an all female, all white jury? I think that the fact that the jury is female will make it more likely that Zimmerman will be convicted, but I think the fact that they are all white may make his chances of walking a lot more probable.
