John Lott’s newest piece at Fox News starts this way:
Stand Your Ground laws have become a racial issue in the aftermath of the not guilty . President Obama and Attorney General Holder have weighed in, linking race and these laws.
On ABC News’ “This Week,” radio talk show host Travis Smiley declared what many think: “It appears to me, and I think many other persons in this country that you can in fact stand your ground unless you are a black man.”
And they seem to have some evidence of this, now that the Tampa Bay Times has reviewed Florida’s court cases to find “defendants claiming ‘stand your ground’ are more likely to prevail if the victim is black.”
