Students, community address racial profiling
Intercultural Student Affairs holds
second social injustice meeting
Heather Ingle
Several community members and media representa-
tives gathered on Monday night to hold a forum for
students on the issue of racial profiling in the media.
The purpose of the forum was to increase awareness
of cultural and social misconceptions and to examine
effective resolutions.
The forum, sponsored by the Office of Intercultural
Student Affairs, ECU Student Union Cultural Awareness
Committee and Student Life Staff Development, was
led by a panel of different community members who
each took turns speaking and addressing questions
from the audience.
Each panel member had different opinions on
racial profiling in the media, and all gave suggestions
on how the issue need to be addressed.
Jaime Espinosa, director of LatinoHispanic Eco-
nomic Development at Pitt Community College, said
that the latinoHispanic population has grown to over
10,000 in the Greenville area and that diversity is no
longer just about African-Americans and whites.
"I think the media plays a very important role in
the development of the community Espinosa said,
"I think the media needs to become more aware of
growing diversity in the community
One panel member felt that the media is already
addressing racial profiling and that the media reports
what the public provides them with.
"One policy that we have implemented at Channel
7 is that we no longer do mugshots said anchor
Lynnette Taylor from WIT'N-7 News.
Taylor informed the audience that mugshots only
reinforce the race of the perpetrator rather than
the crime itself. This, she said, only perpetuates
Other panel members took a different view.
"Not only does media report news, but media also
has the responsibility of shaping the ideas of American
citizens said Thurston Jackson, general manager
of WZMB radio. "Unfortunately, in my opinion, the
media has done a very poor job in doing that
Jackson said that it is the responsibility of the media
to realize they are moral agents to the public rather
than present issues as sensationalism.
Two other panel members addressed law enforce-
ment's role in racial profiling.
"Race is not a requirement of police reports unless
it is needed for a suspect's description said Melissa
Bartlett, public affairs coordinator for the Greenville
Police Department.
"law enforcement does not support any sort of
profiling said Major Cooper of the State Highway
Many suggestions were provided by the panel
members on how to address racial profiling in the
media. A few panelists said that stereotyping was
the problem while others said the news needs to be
reported as fact rather than making color an issue.
Some felt that the solution lies in a better informed
media, and community.
"The way to stop it is to promote understanding
through forums like this Taylor said.
"Racial profiling will always be present in the
media said senior special education majoT Kristie
Hardin, a member of the audience. "What matters
most is how we, the community, will react to it. Until
we become better informed about the issues facing the
media, things will not change

Although women
have come a long
way in the last few
decades, we at TEC
think women still
have a long way
to go. When will
the day come when
a becomes Com-
mander in Chief of
the United States?
Will this day ever
come? Is the U.S.
ready for it to come?
It's hard to believe that in this day and age, females are still considered
a minority, oppressed by a country that claims equality at the very core
of its existence. Is it believable that nationwide, women are not "sharing
equally in the fruits of progress?" Well, for many women, it is believable.
In fact, it's a reality.
It's shocking that women don't receive the same pay as men in any state
of the union. No, it's not shocking-it's sickening. How can women be paid
74 cents for every dollar that men are paid? Though there have been many
improvements, it's surprising that we as a nation haven't come further.
In this presidential election, more women voted than men; however,
women still remain under-represented in elected state and federal government
It's not as if our campus is immune to sexism. Someday, most ECU students
will in one way or another encounter a sexist experience whether it be while
applying for a job or even walking down the street.
There are a number of positive facts that we should applaud the nation for
embracing. Today, there are more women embarking on entrepreneurships
than ever before. Women, through hard work and determination, are obtaining
high-ranking positions, such as Hillary Clinton, who managed to break through
the stand-by-your-man mentality to become a N.Y. senator.
Although women have come a long way in the last few decades, we at TEC
think women still have a long way to go. When will the day come when a
woman becomes Commander-in-Chief of the United States? Will this day ever
come? Is the U.S. ready for it? Wake up, it's a new millennium. It's not too
much to ask for equal pay, let alone equal treatment.
Paid ad urging Gore vote biased
Dear Editor,
Moment that can last a lifetime
Over the last few weeks, TEC
has been covering events and issues
regarding the 2000 Presidential
Election. I can honestly say that
am extremely disappointed with
the way the information was pre-
Every article that I read was
obviously biased. Almost every
article attempted to persuade read-
ers to cast their vote for Al Gore. My
favorite was the advertisement on
the back page of one issue, which
listed each candidates platforms,
and then stated at the bottom, "We
strongly urge you to vote for Al
(iore on Nov. 7
The staff of TEC is responsible
for presenting information to stu-
dents in an informative and fair
way, not in a way that suggests
that you are trying to convince
everyone to conform to your way of
thinking. That should be reserved
for the opinion column, yet I see
"opinions" all over the paper.
The students of ECU should
have been able to read our newspa-
pers and learn about the candidates
without getting subliminal mes-
sages to vote for a certain one. It is
nice to know that TEC is staffed by
a bunch of bleeding heart liberals
that are so desperate to gain votes
for their "I'll promise you anything
to get a vote candidate that they
attempt to brainwash readers into
their way of thinking.
If you think that all of your
articles about Bush's DWI and his
misuse of the English language
made one bit of difference, I can
assure you that it did not with me.
I voted a straight Republican ticket
last Tuesday.
Oh, and just out of curiosity,
if it is a newspapers responsibility
to keep people informed, why
were the slip-ups of Al Gore never
mentioned in the paper? Let me
guess-you all really believe that he
invented the Internet.
Meghan Brucia
Change the world. Impossible,
right? Not necessarily. Change does
not always occur on a grand scale.
It is not always an event that is
recognized by the masses. It can
start with the simplest act and have
a pyramid effect that can touch the
lives of people now and throughout
your lifetime.
Take the idea from the recent
movie based on the book "Pay
It Forward by Catherine Ryan
Hyde. Simple influences paid for-
ward without expectation of return
become a movement that has global
proportions. If you have read the
book or seen the movie, you know
that the main character never fully
realizes the value of his attempts to
change the lives of people.
Giving effort or time or partici-
pation often seems to be something
that we do without glimpsing major
effects, because we fail to see the
big picture. When we volunteer,
we often do so for credit or for a
brief feeling that we have given of
ourselves to a worthy cause. Seldom
do we stop to think about the small
differences we make in people's
lives and how one moment of
involvement may impact someone
far into the future.
Think about how it makes you
feel when someone takes the time
to pay you a compliment, put forth
a smile, or make an effort to lend a
hand or show they care, and how
it can impact your day. It doesn't
require a huge time commitment.
It doesn't involve giving money.
Getting involved does not take
away from your daily routine or
your university experience. It can
only serve to enhance your life
and create opportunities to meet
new people. Your actions have
the potential to make a lasting
impression. Lives may even be
saved by ordinary people and in
small ways.
Take these examples into
account-the person who stays with
a friend that has had too much to
drink or takes away the car keys,
the person who learns about breast
cancer at a campus program and
later encourages someone he or she
loves to have a mammogram.
Or the person who offers sup-
port to someone who is trying to
quit smoking, or who recognizes
the symptoms of depression and
gets a friend needed help. The list
goes on and on.
Students, faculty and staff can
make a difference by participating
in campus events. Opportunities
are everywhere. Call the Volunteer
Center. Attend programs. Bring a
friend. Share what you find out
with others. When you increase
your own awareness, you may pass
on information to someone else
that could change a life now or in
the future.
You may never see the results,
but somewhere, someday, someone
could be wishing they could thank
you. Don't be surprised if you find
that the biggest change you see
is in yourself or that the life you
change is your own.
Many students come to ECU
with the hopes of gaining an edu-
cation that will lead to a career
which will make a difference in
the world. Why wait? Let's make
ECU recognized as a place where
change begins. Let the students,
faculty, and staff of ECU set the
example other universities will
want to follow.
Don't wait until you leave
campus and enter the work force to
make your mark on the world. You
can start by "paying it forward"
right here, right now.

of Health Education Sr Promotion at
ECU Student Health Services and an
ECU alumna.
Dear Editor,
I am a recent graduate of ECU,
a Democrat, a woman and a public
school teacher as well as angry and
frustrated at the lack of research
of the opinion writers on staff. In
particular, Faisal I.odhi. Lodhl's
Gore soundbites were ridiculous.
I would think TEC would expect
their writers to actually have facts
to back up their opinions. The
wealthiest one percent receiving
the most taxes back? Well, my first
year salary as a teacher in North
Carolina must qualify me for that
top percent because under the Gore
plan my husband, an ECU student,
and I do not qualify. We are not
independently wealthy and paid for
college through loans and jobs.
I guess Lodhi did not take the
time to research, thoroughly, the
Gore or Bush tax plan. Because if he
had then he would have watched
the program on PBS about the Gore
and Bush tax plans: Who do they
really help? This was conducted
by an accountant and it was non-
partisan. It showed three families of
different economic circumstances.
Two out of three benefited from
Bush's tax plan not Gore's. The
person who benefited from Gore
was a single mother with three
children, that worked and received
federal assistance. Gore would
help her by giving her even more
money to pay for child care. She
made $18,000 a year and has three
dependents. So Gore wants to give
taxbreaks to people that pay little
to no taxes as it is?
That makes no sense. A second
family profiled made $70,000 a
year, stay at home mom and five
children. No daycare expenses. The
Bush plan benefited them the most
by increasing each dependent's
"worth" by $500. Bush's plan lowers
the rate at which any person that
pays taxes by about six percentage
The third family made $200,000
a year, two dependents and one
will be heading to college in two
to three years. Bush's plan, again,
helped them the most. The big
$10,000 college credit in Gore's
plan applies to only one child and
equals to roughly $2,800. This is
only an $800 improvement on the
current plan; additionally under
the current plan, monies spent on
every child that a family has in
college can deduct it from taxes. So
Gore's plan is better. I think not.
So one would have to logically
conclude that Bush's plan benefits
the most people.
By the'way I voted for Bush.
I guess I like a guy that wants to
give me back my money that I pay
in taxes.

Not all organizations to blame for missing letters
Dear Editor, did not receive a letter about the who make the financial decisio
In regards to the "Our View"
editorial on Tuesday, Nov. 14, I
am concerned about the comment
that were directed to the 198 orga-
nizations on campus that did not
respond to the request for dona-
tions regarding the AIDS Quilt and
AIDS Awareness Week.
I understand how frustrating
it Is to look for outside help, only
to not receive any, however I do
not feel that the blame should be
put on the student organizations
On Monday, Nov. 13,1 received
a phone call from one of the staff
members of TEC to inquire why I
did not respond to the request letter
that was sent to me. I responded by
saying, "What letter?" We contin-
ued to talk for a minute concluding
that I wasn't the only person who
did not receive a letter about the
request for donations.
My concern is with the way in
which this situation was handled.
To write an article and have it
sound like the other organizations
on campus don't care is, in my
opinion, unfair. I am sure that there
are organizations that probably did
receive that letter of request and
it went from their mailbox to the
trash can. I don't doubt that.
I do, however, feel that It should
be addressed that there were also
organizations that never laid eyes
on any such letter.
In the future, I feel that if there
are organizations on campus seek-
ing help from their peer, they need
to go through the proper routes
to do so.
Mailing a letter is OK to do but
it seems to me that actually putting
a letter in the hands of the people
who make the financial decisions
for their organizations would be the
best system, for a better response.
I would also like to include that
these organizations play active
roles in the community and can
not possibly donate to everyone
seeking funds.
I feel that it also needs to be
addressed that the statements about
"selfishness" and "thinking only
of ourselves" were absolutely inap-
propriate statements for some. To
say that all 198 organizations could
care less about a disease that kills so
many, completely insults those that
knew nothing about the request
for donations.
In the future, I feel that the
facts and feelings of others should
be taken into account before any
criticism is written and printed.

ECU Student Union President
funtor art metals major Erica Shmkwytch was misquoted in the Thursday, Nov. 16 edition of TEC. Stankwytch had no
comment mardint her participation in the 24th Annual Great American Smokeout.
This election is very close, as
was indicated by most or all of the
polls taken before the election. It is
our responsibility to make sure that
the person who actually received
the votes is the next president.
We have to make sure that those
who make the decisions regarding
the election don't make those deci-
sions because they have some spe-
cial interest in this election.
Almost every state has been
counted and the winner has been
declared for that particular state.
Now the only state of any real
interest is Florida, since its 25
electoral votes will decide who the
next president will be.
While the counting procedures
and court hearings continue in
Florida, one has to wonder how
fair this whole process is going
to be. When you look at those
who are in the middle of some of
the most important decisions to
be made, you find that they are
The secretary of state has been
very active in the Bush campaign

not how we elect our leaders in this
It is also a fact that Harris
doesn't really know too much about
elections and has never even been
involved in the election process
before. She usually lets her staff take
care of all the details. How then can
we expect her to make the logical
and right decisions now?
How can we have someone from
the Bush campaign decide how we
are going to elect our leader?
Gov. George W. Bush says that
he doesn't like hand recounts. His
reasons are that machines are more
accurate, more reliable and they
don't have any preference over who
wins or loses. He fails to mention
the fact that the machines have a
2.5 percent error margin, that the
machines are not new and do not
use the best technology and that
the machines don't even count the
votes they cannot read.
How then can every vote be
counted? He is saying that he
doesn't trust the people to count
the votes even though he just spent
his entire campaign saying, "I trust
It's a wonder that the state

The film first travels back in time to explore the
prehistoric cave paintings and then on to the people
of Camac who erected the stone monoliths. Following
French history, the movie next touches upon the route
of invading the Romans through their triumphant

"How the Grlnch Stole Christmas"
Jim Carrey portrays the Grinch, a character based on
the 1957 book by Dr. Seuss. The film is narrated by
Anthony Hopkins, (photo from World Wide Web)
Maura Buck
"You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch Though
his character may be a little on the crabby
side, actor Jim Carrey effectively performs a
familiar character in a most unfamiliar way in
the new redition of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch
Stole Christmas.
Ron Howard's rendition of the pseudony-
mous author Theodor S. Geisel's 1957 children's
classic comes to life as never before. Carrey's
reported five hour daily make-up sessions
during production brought the old childhood
character to life, in a

Carrey merges with the
physical features of the
Grinch from the mad
scientist hair to the
row of crooked, yellow
teeth, that from time
to time chomp on glass

is decadent in its own dank and completely

The Grinch, obviously a guy who fancies
himself on making others miserable, is portrayed
as a creature with a heart two sizes too small.
One of the most interesting aspects of the film,
beside the make-up and scenery, is the actual
plot. If you think you are a pro at Grinch trivia,
Actually, the plot is quite different than one
would expect it to be. In fact, the story goes
into detail on what it is that makes the Grinch
the bitter gangrene fellow that we know him
to be. That's right, folks, one of life's nagging
questions, why is the Grinch so miserable?,
is answered in just over 102 minutes. Then,
appropriately, his heart grows three sizes.
For all of us who still turn the 1966 Christmas
television special for
Will it go down in
history as a Christ-
mas classic like its
predecessor? Proba-
bly not, but if you
like the story and
you can't get enough
of the crazy Carrey,
you'll like this spin-
a great sense of fulfill-
ment during the holi-
day season, this is defi-
nitely no substitute.
Instead, it is an in-
depth look at a char-
acter we have always
loved, even in his sim-
plest days.
The same life lesson
is very much present
within this modern
version of The Grinch.
With a little help horn
one of the cutest little
girls in the entire
world, Cindy Lou Who, played by Taylor
Momsen, the Grinch learns that Noel isn't about
the gifts but about togetherness.
As expected, there are laughs available for
adults and children alike. The kids will love
some of the Grinch's tirades while the adults
will love the humor that looms over the heads
of most children. For example, at one point,
the Grinch sits in his recliner speaking of
"wallowing in self-pity" and "staring into an
abyss" for things to do on Christmas Eve. Of
course that is before he gets "his idea, his
wonderfully awful idea
Anyone who has stomped up the steps as a
child in the name of justice or slammed a door
here or there to emphasize just how angry they
are, will find it easy to have compassion for this
furry fellow we know as the Grinch.
Undoubtedly, it is a fun holiday movie.
Believe it or not, one doesn't have to be eight
years old to enjoy the mythical set or some of
the classical Carrey "I am a psycho maniac,
now 1 am completely calm" lines which are
trademarked in some of his other fims-The
Mask and Are Ventura.
Will it go down in history as a Christmas
classic like its predecessor? Probably not, but if
you like the story and you can't get enough of
the crazy Carrey, you'll like this spin-off.

Environment impacts economy

�economic development, a new
study by the Institute for Southern

ranked among the top performers
for its showing in both categories.
"In the 2000 elections, political
leaders were still debating about
whether protecting the environ-

institute and co-author of the report.
"What this study finds is that the
trade-off myth is untrue. At the
state policy level, efforts to promote
a healthy environment and a sound
economy go hand-in-hand
The study, Gold and Green
2000, uses separate lists of indica-
tors to evaluate each state's eco-
nomic performance and stresses on
the environment.
The 20 economic indicators
include annual pay, fob oppor-
tunities, business start-ups and
workplace injury rates. The 20
environmental measures range
from toxic emissions and pesticide
use to energy consumption and
urban sprawl.
The report ranks states on each
indicator, and the sum of the ranks
produces a state's final score.
Seven states rank in the top
IS for both economic and environ-
mental health. Vermont, Rhode
Island and Minnesota rank in the
top six of both lists.
"Now we have two similar stud-
ies that point to the same con-
clusion: states can have a strong

gave coach Don Nehlen the chance to postpone
his retirement.
Brad Lewis threw for a career-high 290 yards
and two touchdowns to lead West Virginia to a
42-24 victory Saturday over ECU in Nehleh's final
home game.
"It's good to see him smile Lewis said. "He's
been trying to keep the focus off his retirement,
but it was nice to get this win for him. We wanted
to go out and play our hearts out for the seniors
and for the coach.
"Emotions were real high before the game and
that continued throughout. There was something
in the locker room today that we were really fired
West Virginia's 42 points were a season high,
although its total yards, 395, were pale by com-
parison. The Mountaineers also got a defensive
touchdown and some scoring help from ECU's
special teams.
West Virginia (6-4) joins East Carolina (6-4) in
becoming bowl-eligible, but the main blemish in
Nehlen's 21 seasons at West Virginia is losing eight
consecutive bowl games.
With several bowl-eligible teams in the Big East
and Conference USA, both teams can improve
their chances this week. West Virginia heads to
Pittsburgh on Friday and ECU is at No. 24 Southern
Miss on Saturday.
"I don't know if six (wins) will do it or not
Nehlen said.
ECU, which erupted for 327 rushing yards
against West Virginia a year ago, was held to just 1
on the ground Saturday.
"We got behind early. They were stopping the
run so well that we had to pass said quarterback
David Garrard. "That was the biggest difference. It
took away from what we wanted to do
Lewis, playing with a sore knee and throwing
hand, completed 12 of 24 passes, an average of 24
yards per completion. He opened the scoring with
a 49-yard TD pass to Antonio Brown and capped
it with an 18-yard TD toss to Khori Ivy with eight
minutes remaining.
Brown had six catches for 179 yards. Ivy has
caught a pass in 38 straight games, the third-longest
streak in Division 1-A.
Garrard was 25-of-41 for 280 yards and helped
ECUcut into a 19-point halftime deficit.
Marcellus Harris took a short pass from Garrard,
broke three tackles and scored from 45 yards out
to make it 29-17.
Later, backup quarterback Arnie Powell took a
handoff from Garrard and threw a 33-yard TD toss
to Aaron Harris to cut the lead to 32-24.

Saturday, his players hoisted Nehlen onto their
shoulders. The WVU band played "Auld Lang
Syne" and fans in the half-empty stadium yelled
"Nehlen! Nehlen
"We wanted to send coach Nehlen out a
winner said linebacker Chris Edmonds. "It
was just like in the movies carrying him off the
field. He's getting a little old and he was a little
worried we'd drop him, so we didn't take him
all the way off
The coach-a self-described "nobody special"
-didn't acknowledge the crowd's roars, but
simply trotted off the field.
"It's the last time down the tunnel said
Nehlen, who is retiring at season's end.
He then paused to recall his thoughts at
that moment.
"You say to yourself, did I do the right thing
and what am I going to do? It's time for
someone else to run this program he said.
Before the game, Nehlen and his 11 seniors
"Before he got here, this place
didn't even exist, and now look at it.
Keith Graley
Tight end, WVU Football
were introduced to a crowd of
40,389, the smallest at Moun-
taineer Field this season,
although the game coincided
with Thanksgiving Break for
"This was one day that it
didn't matter what the weather was like said
Brad Hunt, a WVU defensive tackle from 1983-87
and a current season ticket holder. "I'm not going
to miss coach Nehlen's last day here
Doc Stevens, the stadium's public address
announcer for more than 40 years, became choked
up while reading Nehlen's accomplishments
during the introductions.
At halftime, film clips and tributes from former
players were shown on the video scoreboard.
"I was afraid for a while our team was watch-
ing that and we Were going to blow it Nehlen
Nehlen earned his 200th career win last week.
He's the only West Virginia coach to have walked
the sidelines at Mountaineer Field, which opened
the year he arrived in 1980.
"Before he got here, this place didn't even
exist, and now look at it said Keith Graley, a tight
end on the 1988 team, one of two undefeated
seasons under Nehlen. The other, in 1993, was
Nehlen's only Big East title.
In front of Graley sat Tom Bowman, the
captain of the 1985 squad who turned down
a scholarship offer at Notre Dame to come to
West Virginia.
"Why? Because of coach Nehlen Bowman
said. "West Virginia should be proud
But West Virginia scored 10 straight points in the
fourth quarter to put the game away.
"We weren't looking ahead to Southern Miss
said ECU Head Coach Steve Logan. "David played
his best game
The first half was full of scoring off bouncing
ECU's Chris Howell recovered a Lewis fumble at
the West Virginia 9 and Garrard scored from 2 yards
out two plays later.
Early in the second quarter, a snap sailed over the
head of ECU punter Kevin Miller, who kicked the
bouncing ball through the end zone. West Virginia
was given possession at the 1, and Avon Cobourne
scored for a 15-7 lead.
A minute later, Garrard threw a wild lateral pass
at the ECU 20. The ball was batted around and West
Virginia's Jason Davis fell on it in the end zone.
l.ate in the quarter, I�wis was hit as he threw but
completed a 28-yard floating pass to Phil Braxton.
That set up a 1-yard run by Wes Ours for a 29-7
lead. The 29 first-half points were the most for West
Virginia this season.
West Virginia's James Davis, who entered the
game with two sacks this season, tied a school record
with four sacks, three on one drive.
TEvery play 1 went through, I thought it would
be my last. I knew I had to keep going and keep
going Davis said.

Carruth murder trial begins
NFL player Rae Carruth had his
pregnant girlfriend killed because
she refused to have an abortion, a
prosecutor told jurors in opening
statements Monday.
"She was adamant in her
refusal Assistant District Attorney
Gentry Caudill said. "She wanted
to have that baby
A defense attorney blamed the
shooting on a friend of Carruth's
who was angry because he wouldn't
provide money for a marijuana
Carruth, a former wide receiver
for the Carolina Panthers, is
charged with first-degree murder
for allegedly hiring someone to
shoot 24-year-old Cherica Adams
on Nov. 16, 1999. She was eight
months' pregnant with his child
when she was shot.
Adams' baby son was delivered
by emergency Caesarean section
and survived. Adams died a month
The prosecutor, who is seeking
the death penalty, told jurors that
Carruth and his accomplices laid
a trap, with the 26-year-old player
blocking her car so another man
could pull alongside and shoot
"When the shooting stops, foot-
"lf my son had done this, I would
be in front of this camera saying
he deserves to be punished
But my son didn't do this. He is
Theodry Carruth
Mother of accused
ball hero Rae Carruth drove away
and left Cherica Adams and his
own son for dead Caudill said.
Before she died, Adams made
statements and wrote notes, which
the jurors will be allowed to see.
"She wrote that Rae blocked the
front and he never came back
Caudill said.
Defense attorney David Rudolf
said Carruth didn't give money to
Van Brett Watkins, who already has
admitted pulling the trigger.
Watkins, 40, who is expected
to be a key prosecution witness,
has said Carruth hired him to kill
Adams, but also told a jailer he
shot Adams only because she made
an obscene gesture at him from
her car.
Carruth's lawyers have con-
tended that Watkins' mental state
is questionable because of anti-
psychotic drugs he has taken.
Rudolf said the shooting had
"absolutely nothing to do with the
fact that she was pregnant
Rudolf said Carruth "partici-
pated in the pregnancy He went
and bought baby furniture They
agreed to co-parent this baby
In a Court TV interview before
the statements, Carruth's mother
proclaimed his innocence.
"If my son had done this, I
would be in front of this camera
saying he deserves to be punished
but don't kill him Theodry Car-
ruth said. "But my son didn't do
this. He is innocent
During jury selection, lawyers
for Carruth, who is black, made race
an issue as prosecutors repeatedly
dismissed blacks from the jury.
Superior Court Judge Charles Lamm
ruled the dismissals were based on
opposition for capital punishment
and other factors other than race.
The completed jury has seven
white men, two white women and
three black women. One black man
is among the four alternate jurors.
Two other men are also charged
with murder: Michael Eugene Ken-
nedy, 25, accused of driving the car
from which the shots were fired,
and Stanley Drew "Boss" Abraham,
a passenger in the car. They will be
tried separately.
