How Can You Tell If A Judge Is Racist?
You can't tell if an individual is racist just by looking at them...So How Would You Know For Sure If An Individual Is Racist?
Throwing the word racist around is getting old. Why does it bother you?
What concerns you about a judge being racist. Are you considering making that charge in order to get a new judge. Be careful - it might backfire.
A lot of research would have to be done. You would have to research all of his past cases and decisions and see if they seem racial motivated. A long shot.
If you think a judge may be racist contact a lawyer and see if you can review cases the judge in question has overseen, if there a patten? has he given harsher sentences to one ethnic groups vs another?
Short of a racist statement you probably can't tell if someone is racist (judge or not). Mitigating factors of each of his or her past cases would make proof very difficult unless there that particular judge's ruling were well outside standard deviations as compared to the rulings of all local judges in the area for similar cases. This data would be extraordinarily difficult to compile, and most attorneys who would potentially argue in front of the judge would never want to make that charge.
That said, it is highly likely that the judge is not racists. To be clear, his or her experience may bias their decision making to some degree, but if you stand before the court, you should be able to easily move things in your favor. Dress well, speak well, be respectful, and be restrained in your speech and demeanor, and you will be fine.
I agree with Catz, this would take a bunch of research of past cases and seeing if a pattern shows up. You might be able to notice a certain ethnic group gets a harsher sentence than another. However, that alone would not be enough to prove racism unless you either have several where the crime is very similar but the sentencing is so far apart from each other it's obvious.
Example would be several records from different ethnic groups where they failed to show up for court or non-payment, is the judge giving them all the same sentence or are certain ethnic groups being sentenced to the fullest extinct while others are always on the lower end?
Simply, unless you have hard evidence it's usually very hard if not impossible to target anyone in a city counsel position and that's how come there are so many crooked ones out there. Then those ones give the rest a bad reputation because it makes people wonder who's good and who's a crook...

recently Mel Gibson stated that the comments he has made about race is not who he is. He's said that inside he is a different person and that people shouldn't think of him as being racist.If it was just 1 instance and he apologized for it, then that would make sense. The thing is he's...

What about this statement? You don't need to judge me, God has it covered!!!!!Why do people feel the need to judge one another? Some people think power, fame and wealth are the ticket in life but they always seem empty and searching for more. To me the important goal is heaven.
