California Court Decision
I am cross-posting this, so you might see it several times. Sorry.
For ease (or complication?) and collection of discussion, I am going to link to my blog on this issue.
It is a long, angry, Maddox

Conversation in class- Diversity- how it would have affected the jury if they understood the reason an African American man might have stocking tops.
There were conversations about understanding someone’s culture. Looking around the class, there is no one who I know of that identifies as African American or black.
The assumption of “otherness” bothered me, but then there was a comment before this comment that really bothered me. White male professor, “You know the man, stocking cap; curls held down underneath, these are the scariest people alive.”
The class laughed.
What does one who wants to stop racism white centric attitudes in a classroom? Where is the moment to comment?
Strangely SU ranks High as one of the most liberal, diverse law schools in the nation. This professor seemed to think he was being properly “PC” about it.

Where in your life do you practice privilege? In your legal experience (if you have any, law school counts), how has race affected your day to day personal interactions? How many times today have you thought about your race? How many times today have you thought about another person's race? What are your filters?
