Remember the other day when I took David Hampton's Op-Ed page behind the woodshed on the "death penalty" lunacy? You know how I downloaded the actual FACTS behind the "racial bias" that the C-L saw and PROVED that they were full of crap?
Charlie Mitchell published an article with the same FACTS in today's dog trainer. This is promising, but for one little stretch.
From 1817 until 1972 when the U.S. Supreme Court declared executions unconstitutional, Mississippi executed 351 people, a rate of just over 2 per year. A racial breakdown was not available, but it's probably safe to say black people were disproportionately represented.
Um, NO. It is NOT safe to say those things. You see, as a REPORTER, you have to have the FACTS, Mr. Mitchell. You did what is known to intelligent people as "ASSUMED." Assumptions are NOT reporting, as a matter of fact, you unfairly place the title of "racist" on every single Mississippian.
Now, if you will retract that statement, or make the disclaimer that during that time Mississippi was in the grips of the racist Democrats that were making all strides possible to keep black people "in their place," then we might have something to chew on. Instead, you used the racist brush to paint every person in our state as a racist.
Remember, only Democrats have the racial hatred gene, get your facts straight, Bub.
