NAACP - Criminal Justice Goals, I think John Edwards read this!

In the MTV/Myspace Presidential Debate John Edwards practically quoted what the NAACP has listed for their Criminal Justice Goals, when asked "What would you do to help eliminate inner city kids partake in violence?"

here are some statistics I found on the NAACP -- Criminal Justice Goals chart:
1. Blacks represent 12% of total population yet represent 29.5% of those arrested
2. Once arrested, blacks are three times more likely to be incarcerated than whites
3. Of 682 defendants charged with federal crimes subject to death penalty 20% were white, 80% minority

John Edwards makes reference to all of this. This leads me to believe he has an astute understanding of this kind of institutional racism.

Political Sabotage part 1

Some blogs are having fun accusing John Edwards of being a racist.

Like this blog: Gateway Pundit
and this blog: Dangney's Rant

But it seems to me these blogs are incorrect. It appears these blog are miss quoting. If you have listened to John Edwards full response you would know these blogs are taking things out of context. Are they spreading lies?

When people cry out "Doh! Racism!" they know that is a near leathal blow. It's like calling someone a rapist. So when you stand up and call someone out you better know what you are talking about.

When I call you out I know when something is not true and you say it anyway - It's a lie.

Where's my outrage?

Right here. Bring it on.

John Edwards is NOT a racist!

I watched this video of John Edwards at the MTV/Myspace Debate and do not understand how this can be conceived as racist:

The blog that spurred this debate!

The people who are saying John Edwards is a racist are wrong. They are confused about being a racist and talking about race.
