The results of the Duke University study suggest that the ethnicity of those placed on a courtroom jury affect the outcome of the defendant. These findings are problematic because black people are being convicted for crimes they did not do. The information shows that when a jury consists of only white people, blacks were convicted guilty 81% of the time whereas whites were only convicted guilty 66% of the time. The conviction rates were identical when the jury included at least one black person. I feel as if this information implies that when there are not black people on the jury, a black defendant has a greater chance of being convicted. The information provided by Duke University show that there is clearly a bias between black and white peopleThis information connects to Atticus' speech because he states that white people assume black people are liars, and guilty. The Duke study shows that when a black person was included in the jury, the jury made decisions based on the information provided in court, not personal beliefs. When a black person is placed on trial in front of an all white jury, I feel as if a black person is thought of as being less of a person. The thought of a criminal is usually associated with a black man.
