License to Kill

If you’re a white person in Florida and you kill a black person, the death penalty is off the table.

Florida has executed 84 people since the Supreme Court announced the modern death penalty regime in 1976. Zero of them are white people sentenced to death for killing an African American. Indeed, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, “no white person has ever been executed for killing an African American” in the state of Florida.

You might even get your own autograph booth at a gun show.
