Carroll said no one took the names of the attendees who threw peanuts at her Tuesday on the convention floor and told her, “This is what we feed animals.” She alerted fellow camera operators, producers and CNN security. The head of the delegation — she was not certain of the state — told her the perpetrators must have been alternates, not delegates.
But Carroll, 34, said that as an Alabama native, she was not surprised. “This is Florida, and I’m from the Deep South,” she said. “You come to places like this, you can count the black people on your hand. They see us doing things they don’t think I should do.
The judge in his case has requested clemency, not least because he had inadequate legal representation which led to the suppression of mitigating factors in his case.
And again, for those who say that the death penalty in the United States is not about race—Derrick Mason is a Black man accused of killing a white woman.
You can contact Alabama Governor Robert Bentley to ask him to reconsider his denial of clemency in this case.

On the day of his swearing-in, Alabama Republican Gov. Robert J. Bentley raised concern among the state’s non-Christians by declaring that people who had not accepted Jesus Christ were not his brothers and sisters.
Speaking to a large crowd Monday at Montgomery’s Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church — where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once preached — Bentley said that “if you’re a Christian and you’re saved … it makes you and me brother and sister,” according to a report in the Birmingham News.
“Now I will have to say that, if we don’t have the same daddy, we’re not brothers and sisters,” he added, according to the paper. “So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister, and I want to be your brother.
OK, everyone who voted for this man: go to the chalkboard and copy this phrase 25 times:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof
Donors to his campaign need to copy it an additional 10 times for each dollar they contributed to this schmuck.
