A few weeks ago, a thoughtless judge sent out an email forward of a joke – with the punchline being that President Obama’s mother had sex with a dog. In true Rush Limbaugh style, the judge claimed that the media was overreacting because, after all, it was just a harmless joke. But the truth is that racism has found a home in our court system among some members of the judiciary, and this racist email was just the latest in a long line of race-based attacks. Mike Papantonio talks about some of the other instances of intolerance from the bench, with blogger and author Chauncey DeVega.
