One thought on “Racism in the Mental Health Profession

    Is it possible that your view stated in the first paragraph on your “partial explanation for the verdict in the trial” is based on a bias of your own?

    To project racism onto these jurors is a terrible injustice to them as people and must be based solely on your own pre-existing notions unless you have met them and interviewed them.

    You profile the players in this trial based upon their ethical and racial backgrounds, thus exhibiting the very behavior you condemn.

    I personally take no stand on the trial or the verdict because I was not privy to all the facts and I was not a member of the jury charged with making a decision.
