The news today are reporting that the state of Washington has deemed the death sentence because it had been “imposed in an arbitrary and racially biased manner.”
Well, very good news, but does that also mean black people will have fairer trials in future or will they get life sentences instead in the same manner? In the U.S.A. a black person is much more likely to be poor and go to jail than a white American. Though this is a structural phenomenom of the American society, the amerikanische Volksseele is willingly accepting that as the flipside of its "fervent commitment to Liberty". Give me liberty, or give me death - is a quote of a slave owner. If Germany had death penalties imposed in an arbitrary and racially biased manner and structural racism and founding fathers who were slave owners, one might draw conclusions about the deutsche Volksseele just by picking out a single German right-wing philosopher - without being arrogant.

And yet Americans elected a black man as president - twice. A land full of contradictions and paradoxes.

The point was that "Volksseele" is a crock of sh*t - a throwback to Alfred Rosenberg.
