Top court stays Texas death row inmate execution


WASHINGTON/AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - The Supreme Court gave a reprieve on Thursday to a Texas death row inmate in a case tinged by racial controversy, granting a stay more than 90 minutes after the scheduled time of execution.

The high court issued the stay for Duane Buck, 48, who had been scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection at 6 p.m. local time in Huntsville, Texas, for a pair of shotgun murders in 1995 in Houston.

Lawyers for Buck, who is black, appealed to the Supreme Court and said he had been unfairly sentenced because a psychologist testified that black men were more likely than other races to be repeat offenders after their release from prison.

Ok, a few things I want to touch on here. First off, it's true black inmates/parolees are much more likely to continue committing crime. That's not a racist comment. That's a fact.

Black people tend to have a very different outlook on life and on the World Around Us. They like to see themselves as victims, even when they are taking part in crime. They typically use excuses for their behaviour such as growing up in poverty. Some still complain that slavery effected them. And many blacks still claim every white man is racist.

Some more black facts.....
1. Most black men believe they are gods gift to women.
2. Most black men have an unrealistic dream of being a rap star.
3. Most black men dress like idiots, and wonder why they can't get a job.

The list goes on and on. And just for the record, I am not racist. Just stating facts, as I always do.
