The symbol of justice is a blind-folded woman with a scale.  This gives off the impression that no matter what you look like or what your situation looks like, the scales of justice are only tilted by the weight of evidence in either direction.But is this really true?  The trial of George Zimmerman and Joseph Weekely both began this week.  Zimmerman is on trial for killing Trayvon Martin and Weekely being tried for fatally shooting 7 year old Ayana Jones during a raid of the home. In both cases, race is an issue and divides possible jurors.  Call 760.283.4647 this Tuesday @8pm and comment on the HOT TOPIC ~ DOES RACE INFLUENCE THE SCALES OF JUSTICE?" or click www.eblockradio.com to view us LIVE on uStream!
