    •  But if you're 'Indian' it's totally fine. (0+ / 0-)

      Right?

      Your comment was non-constructive on many levels.

      I see what you did there.

      buuut "you'll be fine if you never commit the crime" doesn't really address the question of whether one is getting a fair trial or not.

      If we turn this around for a moment ... historically, there have been cases of men of color falsely accused of assaulting white women and unjustly condemned by white juries.  (As others have already pointed out, this is probably why Grassley assumes that the same thing could and would happen to a white man facing an Indian jury.)

      "Leave white women alone and you'll be fine" would not really have been the best advice for that situation.
