Roxie,

Legend has it my maternal grandmother killed her husband for reasons similar to those you express. I say its a "legend" because the only ones who really know about what went down are either dead. Or they ain't talking.

Obviously, there are MYRIAD biases against Black women (and men) in the legal/judicial system.

But I think where some sister make a mistake is not getting a nikka's prior misdeeds on the PUBLIC RECORD. Then when they have to kill a mofo, they don't have shyt backing them up. And (moreso than White women) usually can't afford an attorney who can help them beat the rap.
