    While I think it's wrong to send them out of the courtroom...I say cudos to the guy for having enough guts to "lecture" the people of his race.

    I wonder if he was concerned for the whites safety? OR maybe he just felt embarrassed with the whites there. I don't feel like this is a bad guy, just made a careless decision in the heat of the moment.

    Reverse it. A white judge kicks all non whites out of a court room to " lecture" white defendants. What do you think the Headline would be?

    Nope, no problem. Just thought it was an interesting story. You don't normally hear of people "racially" getting asked to leave a courtroom. I just thought I'd get everyone elses view of it. There's bound to be someone who says, "That racist judge," or "good, make the whites leave," or something to that effect. This was most definately more "flame-bait" than a problem. LOL

    Never thought of that, should have though. It would have made headlines, NAACP would be all over the place, Jesse Jackson and Quannel X would be out of their holes and all over that judge like chocolate on ice-cream.

    It is interesting. It's interesting to me because I never cease to be amazed at the power US judges have. I'm just not used to it.

    Yes, I can see the racial aspect igniting people, don't know why though.

    That's an effective simile, I hope you don't get bombarded for it.

    If a judge has the right to kick anyone he or she wishes out of a courtroom and the judge can defend the decision (as it would appear this judge has) then who cares what objectors on the sidelines are saying?

    Because THIS judge was ALLOWED to defend a decision that a white Judge would not be able to defend with the EXACT same words and deeds. It is a double standard. It is racial if a white does it, but just " no problem" if a black does it.

    The same reason Obama can have a racist " mentor" and no one gives a rats ass but Trent Lott got thrown under the bus for saying something nice about a retiring US Senator.

    A black person in this country can be as racist as they want, they can openly state their racism and they are given a pass. A white person even smiles at some off color joke and they are hounded out of office. By the same people that do not care that a black man is racist.

    When a white judge does it the other way we'll see what happens, until then it's pure speculation.

    As for the rest of your post - opinionated crap.
