ANDREW MCCARTHY (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): I worked in the justice system for a long time. I think it's maybe the least racist system that we have in the country, if that's possible. We're a country that's done a lot to try to root out racism because of our prior history of it, but, you know, if you've been in the criminal justice system, it's dominated, for the most part, by judges and lawyers who are products of left-leaning educational institutions who don't have -- there's a lot of things you can say about them but the idea that they're racist is absurd, and the idea that they would be presiding over a system that was endemically racist is equally absurd.
