good americans and the death penalty is more likely to be using cases in which a white person is killed as opposed to an african american. Um Since 1976, there's been 300 people accused of murdering white people that have been executed Than compared to 21 of white people accused of murdering black people. Um, 60 of the people who uh, And then we're going all the way now. We talked about 1976, but the numbers since 1989 are actually still the same with the, with the numbers of African Americans that exonerated. And we also talked about the innocent people are seven times innocent black people are seven times more likely to be uh, wrongfully convicted of a murder than innocent white people. It takes longer to exonerate an innocent black person. Black people spend an average of 13.8 years Uh in prison before being exonerated as opposed to 4.5 further white counterparts, police misconduct that carried in more than half of all wrongful murder convictions, cases involving innocent black people. And we're just actually talking about numbers as relative to uh, murder cases, but we're not even talking about the numbers as it as it applies to other, other type of incidents. So just so that we can, and I think that what I want to do in your case is I kind of want to mr Diop, I wanna back into it. So in other words, instead of of kind of letting them know what happened in your case and just kind of letting them know what the issues are and what the problem is in the grand scheme of things, I kind of want to first talk about, you know, what the, you know, what we need to do and then we'll and then your case explains why we need to do these particular things right? And so, you know, I guess I want to begin buying, making it clear that, you know, and I want you to to tell me if I'm wrong as far as my attitude and my perception as to ultimately what do what do we want as far as as people of color, as far as how, what we need to do with the problems that are going on in our communities as it relates primarily to the criminal justice system. And to be quite honest with everything, I want to begin by making this statement. The first statement that I want to make is that I have no desire or interest in being accepted, Right? Does that make any sense? Right? So in other words, the whole idea of any agenda that that begins with the idea that, you know, there's there's this desire to be accepted, I believe is counterproductive. And I'm just speaking from myself, it's definitely something that I'm truly not interested in, right. I mean that I have no interest in being accepted by anyone. Um, whether we're talking about the majority of of society, of the majority of the community in America, and the reason why I do that is I think that the narrative that we have in this country is a warped and a misleading narrative when it comes to the issue of race. And what do I mean by being a warped uh, narrative is that the idea that racism is about superiority is a misnomer, racism is not about superiority. It isn't, I think to a certain extent, although we tend to use the word privilege, I think that we can, you know, I understand how we use the word, but I don't necessarily, you know, buy into the whole idea that is necessarily an idea of privilege either. And this is why I say that, let's begin with the whole idea about why it's not superiority. It's not superiority because the the paradigm or at least a system of american justice as it relates to the injustice towards african americans does not derive out of a uh an idea that african americans or um necessarily inferior right? It ultimately gets there, but it derives from an idea of of inferiority, meaning that the reason why they do those things and why they have tried to oppress black people is out of fear, right? It's really a fear. You don't fear people that are inferior to you. You fear people that you believe um that you know that you believe that basically may uh impede your progress or in pre peed your livelihood in In one way or the other, you know? So the whole idea, the whole the whole thing we've done shows on how even racism, from a european perspective even came into existence. We've done those shows, and I'm not gonna go into talking about how that happens. But I think that when we began to start dealing with ways to address the issue of injustice, we have to be very careful about playing into narratives that are
