Re: OMG - Racial Justice Act?!?

And why stop at race? How about gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, etc?

I'm sure jurors are excluded based on age and gender, although it would be harder to have a jury comprised of only males than a jury comprised of only white people. As for religion and sexual orientation that would be a little harder since I don't think those are questions the lawyers can ask to make juror determinations. (unless religion has something to do with the case)

For the record if I murdered my husband I would not have a jury of my peers if as a straight caucasian woman the jury were padded with gay black men would I?
