Winding Down

The former prosecutor
said, to paraphrase,
“If his name was Kwame
or Pedro the sentencing
would have been very
different,” regarding the
soft and reputedly unjust
sentencing of an old,
white guy in the court of
an old, white guy. If this
verdict means anything,
according to another
former prosecutor, it
is that there still is no
equal treatment under
the law. The justice rul-
ed that old, white-collar,
white guys rule…still…
if only until old, white
guys die off, something
of which old, white guys
are particularly sensitive
and aware and still
weakly raging against
as the old, white, wind
bags’ wind winds down….
