Chance for Equity

October 6, 2010

I want to see how blind justice really is. This is an opportunity for you to work with me in ensuring that whites and blacks are treated equal, that rich and poor are treated equal. What am I talking about? A veteran CBS Radio News correspondent was arrested early Saturday on drug charges after police searched his Northwest Washington home and found marijuana plants growing in his yard. Officers arrested 60 year old Howard Arenstein and his wife, Orly Katz, 57, at their home in the 3500 block of T Street and charged them with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, police. How will the wheels of justice turn for him?

White people “do no wrong?” From the apparent congressional ethics investigations happening right now, I’m right.
