Racial prejudice reflects on one’s religious beliefs in one key way- that one is not listening to the word of God and the teaching of all religious teachers if one persists in one’s feelings of racial prejudice despite knowing it is wrong. All animals treat those who are different from them with fear or distrust or dislike.

The point about being human, and being given the intelligence and indeed the teaching that goes with human education and aspiration, is that we know that feelings of difference are to be celebrated rather than used as an excuse for despising others and treating them badly. The rabbis taught that it matters not whether a person be Jew or gentile, male or female, free person or slave, it is according to his/her deeds that the Holy Spirit rests upon a person- and that is the teaching that should govern us all- irrespective of which faith we belong to.

    WHERE ARE AMERICA’S RELIGIOUS LEADERS ?*** SADLY THIS REPRESSIVE JUDICIAL INJUSTICE HAS BECOME AN AMERICAN ART FORM !!!** WHEN GOD’S FACE BECAME VERY RED ****** INNOCENT AMERICANS ARE DENIED REAL HC RIGHTS WITH THEIR FEDERAL APPEALS !****WHEN THE US INNOCENT WERE ABANDONED BY THE GUILTY ****Since our US Congress has never afforded poor prison inmates federal appeal legal counsel for their federal retrials,they have effectively closed the doors on these tens of thousands of innocent citizens ever being capable of possibly exonerating themselves to regain their freedom through being granted new retrials.This same exact unjust situation was happening in our Southern States when poor and mostly uneducated Black Americans were being falsely imprisoned for endless decades without the needed educational skills to properly submit their own written federal trial appeals.This devious and deceptive judicial process of making our poor and innocent prison inmates formulate and write their own federal appeal legal cases for possible retrials on their state criminal cases,is still in effect today even though everyone in our US judicial system knows that without proper legal representation, these tens of thousands of innocent prison inmates will be denied their rightful opportunities of ever being granted new trials from our federal appeal judges!!Sadly, the true US *legal* Federal Appeal situation that occurs when any of our uneducated American prison inmates are forced to attempt to submit their own written Federal Appeals (from our prisons nationwide) without the assistance of proper legal counsel, is that they all are in reality being denied their legitimate rights for Habeas Corpus and will win any future Supreme Court Case concerning this injustice!For our judicial system and our US Congressional Leaders Of The Free World to continue to pretend that this is a real and fair opportunity for our American Middle Class and Working Poor Citizens, only delays the very needed future change of Federal Financing of all these Federal appeals becoming a normal formula of Our American judicial system.It was not so very long ago that Public Defenders became a Reality in this country.Prior that legal reality taking place, their were also some who thought giving anyone charged with a crime a free lawyer was a waste of taxpayers $$.This FACADE and HORROR of our Federal Appeal proce$$ is not worthy of the Greatest Country In The World!***GREAT SOCIETIES THAT DO NOT PROTECT EVEN THEIR INNOCENT, BECOME THE GUILTY!A MUST READ ABOUT AMERICAN INJUSTICE::lawyersforpooramericans@yahoo.com 424-247-2013
