    The article was dead on, sir. Except for one thing:Being a "celebrity" in this country adds a layer of protection even beyond "rich and white." And only serves to infuriate me more. And I'm sorry to show my prejudice here, but when I read "Georgia," "black teen-ager" and "prison" I wasn't shocked to read what you had written. Just sad. And p*ssed. What's up with that DA, though? Bad enough they pick on some kid who can't afford tough representation, they stick an A student BACK IN when he gets out after serving 2-1/2 years?!! Is anything being done for this kid, or is he stuck until his case comes up for parole again?And what was the big, honking reason for that? Did the girl's family have an "in" with the judge or DA? You didn't mention, was the girl white? THAT would blow off the DA's hood, wouldn't it?BTW: my favorite line of your piece: "But just in case it is racist I want you to know that white women LOVE me."Can we put that on a Tee-shirt and send it to the DA?

    Preach, brother! If you've been reading Bob Herbert's columns in the New York Times, lately, he's been reporting about a large group of black kids in Brooklyn who were arrested (and held in jail overnight) for going to a friend's wake.
