Judge Karlin's Reelection

June 14, 1992

Judge Karlin keeps talking about a "vocal minority" trying to impose its view on a "larger majority of the community." What majority? The jury found the woman who killed Latasha Harlins guilty of voluntary manslaughter. It was Karlin's own racism that prompted her to rule that the life of a black child is worth not even one day in jail.

I don't think most Americans expect their judges to be "politically correct." But we do expect them to be just. And if they're not just, they should be thrown out of the system that Karlin professes to promote.

As for being part of a "vocal minority" (read black person), I say hooray for us! The Jewish people of Nazi Germany were a minority, a silenced one, and look what happened to them.
