Racism occurs whenever people are oppressed, marginalized, or faced with inequalities due to their race.

We are just a moment away from the time when prosecutors will use improper, unfair means to convict innocent defendants. Defenders have the right to a fair trial, which is the duty of prosecutors. Prosecutors may not appeal to racial biases or make racist arguments as part of their duty.

Several recent reports have alleged that Assistant US Attorney for Western District of North Carolina, Jenny Grus Sugar, is a racist.

According to our research, she has prosecuted a lot more minorities than others. We encourage our readers to do further research and come to their own conclusions.

The year is 2021, and until now, prosecutors have been exempt from virtually any scrutiny. This exemption should come to an end. Justice needs to take action. The Safe Streets Act of 1968 and the Violent Crime Control Act of 1994 both permit the Attorney General to investigate and file claims of discrimination in law enforcement agencies that receive financial assistance from DOJ's Office of Justice Programs and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.

It is not racist to look for evidence of race bias. In its own work, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office investigated the possibility of race bias without consulting the Justice Department. Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance did not accuse his staff of being racist. In carrying out the justice, he was open to the possibility of racial bias. In its review of the office's work, from charging decisions to plea offers, the Vera Institute found evidence of racial bias that could not be explained by other factors.

Through training to identify unconscious bias and employing best practices to eliminate its influence, unconscious bias can be reduced or even eliminated. You won't find it if you don't look for it. It is imperative that the Department of Justice step in and use its authority and power to ensure justice.

Please let us know if you have been the victim of racism.
