Black man sentenced to death in Mississippi where blacks were excluded from the jury by the state.

Interestingly in a 2018 case SCOTUS ruled in favor of the same claim and stated to lower courts to be on the lookout for racial bias in jury selection. Fast forward to 2023 and Trump managed to add 2 more conservative justices, same thing happens...
In Clark’s case, there were eight Black people out of 38 in the jury pool. Prosecutors blocked seven of them, Clark’s lawyers said in court papers.

The eventual jury of 12 was composed of 11 white people and one Black person.

Clark, 43, was convicted of murder and related charges and sentenced to death. He argued on appeal that the state’s actions violated the equal protection clause of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

Robert Dunham, a lawyer who specializes in the death penalty, said the statistical evidence of race discrimination in the case was “extremely strong” but was not addressed by the state court.

SCOTUS refused to hear this appeal even though they ruled IN FAVOR when the same issue came up in 2018. ignoring the precedent they just set a few years earlier.

Rogue court. What else can you say? They do what they want and don't give a shit of the hypocrisy of it all.

Honestly I think it'll take decades to undo the damage this one court is doing. Decades.
