Hello All, Pamee, it is disturbing that you equate fairness with the percentage of ethnicities on death row in Texas. It really is a truly disturbing representation, that the numbers of whites versus non-whites are almost equal. Although at first the numbers may seem somewhat "equal", but in fact it shows the distressing racism that is occuring in Texas. How can a state that is clearly not fifty percent white / non-white say that justice is meted out fairly. Texas has about thirty six percent of its population are considered minorities, but yet its death row population does not mirror the population, as there are just shy of seventy percent of the inmates on death row are considered minorities. Either the minorities are conducting a vast majority of the crimes in Texas, or the more obvious answer, that the Texas Criminal Justice System does prosecute and send to thier deaths more minorities than whites. Purely an egregious miscarriage of justice is occurring in Texas, and this state is not alone in the lopsided statistics.
