    I am over 50 and one of the best places I have ever lived in in a Jamaican neighborhood.

    You are reacting to your biases;.

      that the societal conditioning drove the reactions of all white women in the jurors demographic... and we both know for every woman in that demographic such as yourself who may be comfortable around black males with whom she is not familiar there are hundreds...if not thousands... who immediately feel threatened/anxious/fearful... even though the majority of which have had no negative personal encounter with any black male and many of which have had limited to no personal encounters with black males of any kind at any time.

      I am not reacting... and the biases in play are not mine.

      Fear doesn't just breed incomprehension. It also breeds a spiteful, resentful hate of anyone and everyone who is in any way different from you.
