If editorials about all the evidence of bias in capital cases don’t give you pause, perhaps you’d be interested in the evidence itself:

Juries formed from all-white jury pools in Florida convicted black defendants 16 percent more often than white defendants, a gap that was nearly eliminated when at least one member of the jury pool was black, according to a Duke University-led study.  
The researchers examined more than 700 non-capital felony criminal cases in Sarasota and Lake counties from 2000-2010 and looked at the effects of the age, race and gender of jury pools on conviction rates.

The article — by Shamena Anwar, Patrick Bayer and Randi Hjalmarsson — is here.
