It's right there on the video when he's dragging her, unwillingly, back to the room.

How does that address/change anything that I wrote? I acknowledge what the video shows. On the other hand, I also have challenged others who claim the video shows something it clearly does not.

This is why I always keep saying hypergamy has been weaponized for the worse by not feminists, but celebreties and corporations.

Nope, it literally goes with the point people are prefacing about being a person of importance

I know that the jury was selected from the local population and Flint Michigan is majority black, only 2% or so of the population is non-Hispanic white. I would like to assume that a all-black or all-white jury can be fair but in situations like this, if a all-white jury was selected in a case between a black person and a white person then there would be riots over it if the verdict found the black person guilty. I see no reason why an all-black jury in a case between a white person and a black shouldn’t be equally scrutinized if that happened.

I am just pondering here as I don’t know the make up of the jury, I just know that the video is clear as day and something was going on for him to be acquitted. Perhaps the jury was diverse and his money / fame did it? Something smells worse than the lead polluted water in Flint i know that...
Why did the original old white woman judge dismiss the case?

So we’ve had an old white woman judge dismiss the case and a jury of twelve come to a quick acquittal. That’s enough for me to figure there is at least reasonable doubt here.

She may have had a pro-celebrity athlete bias. Who knows what her motivation could've been, but being old an old white woman doesn't mean you're not a liberal with a bias in favor of a black defendant.

She issued a protective order May 20 to block MLive and The Flint Journal from publishing details from the search warrant affidavit involving rape charges against former Michigan State University basketball star Mateen Cleaves.
Sounds like she might've been a soft on crime liberal judge.

Sounds like she might've been a soft on crime liberal judge.
Sounds like she has a problem with drug penalties not rape penalties.

She turned out to be right. A waste of taxpayers money trying Cleaves.

But, hey,we can’t have black men with good looking white women.

The score is 13-0. I know some of them jurors might have been black.

More like we can't have a black sports celebrity man going to jail for raping a white woman.
