Amnesty magazine: a senator on the death penalty

The November/December 2009 issue of Amnesty Magazine includes How racism keeps the executioner at work, an article by Georgia State Senator, Nan Orrock.  She writes that blacks who kill whites are eleven times more likely to be executed than whites who kill blacks.  She says that even the lawyers representing some people on death row have used racist language against them. 

See the blog by Martina, sister of Troy Davis.  He has been on death row since 1991.
