It’s been interesting to watch entrenched Trump supporters dig in even deeper after every misstep, misstatement, or mistake.
But before you dismiss them as idiots, let me ask you, especially my Chicago folks, do you buy R. Kelly’s music?
Have you chosen to ignore his problematic personal behavior or just been unable to see his behavior as problematic?
Or maybe, the things he does that you support, in your mind, offset the really nasty things you don’t support.
Or maybe the folks he’s doing the nasty things to, don’t matter to you.

I had my first civilian jury duty last week. I WANTED to serve, although just for a short case, and that’s exactly what happened. I haven’t been able to format my experience in a way that fits this space but I know it was vastly different from the other jurors because of how we responded to the information we were give.
The trail reinforced for me the need to have defendants judged by their peers. And since we live in a country that incarcerates black and brown people at 5.1 and 1.4 (respectively) times the rate of whites, to me, that means more people of color need to be in the jury box.

If you say you value integrity, SHOULDN”T you be where you say you’re going to be, when you say you’re going to be there…do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you are going to do it…you know, be accountable to yourself?
