Professional lawyer, Holly Hughes was keeping it really real as she said on cnn. In this video clip she says, ” Let’s flip this, Don. Let’s say that in the state of Florida, black men were murdering teenage white boys and then when they went to trial, they got acquitted using “Stand Your Ground.”
Do we really think that if that was happening, that they wouldn’t repeal the law or change it? That’s what it comes down to. And you know I’ve heard a lot of people say ‘oh well, you know black men get convicted and that’s the problem./ No, no, no..let’s do exactly the reverse.
Black adult men murdering white boy teenagers in Florida and then getting acquitted? There would be a riot to equal NONE.
They would repeal that law so fast and say “you can’t have “Stand Your Ground” anymore.” So why is it ok in this situation?”
