As a follow up, we suggest reading the “Report of the Ohio Commission on Racial Fairness.” In 1999, the Ohio Supreme Court and the State Bar presented this Commission with the following mandate: “…to identify racial bias where it exists and propose methods for eliminating it from the legal profession and the justice system.”  In its conclusion, the Commission wrote: “There is a great disparity in the perceptions of the entire justice system between Ohio’s white citizens and her citizens of color. Whites see a fair system that basically works well; others see an unfair system that sometimes works but very often does not, at least not for them. The disparity of experience is widest in criminal justice.”   This report is still very relevant and is a reminder that we need to continue this work today.
