just manslaughter? how about first degree MURDER....can a Black person be killed and the killer get a murder charge?? i'm wondering
Only if they are killed by another Black person, [Black Codes, Statute 662, Section A-1]
Sunnubian, what state are the Black Codes you are referencing here from?
The one from the Jim Crow Code of Laws.
Maybe I need to rephrase the question. Because I genuinely want to know. I do understand that each state and Washington DC implemented their own set of Black Codes and later Jim Crow Laws, I'm simply asking in what state were the particular Black Codes, Statue 662, Section A-1 so that I can become educated on the law and perhaps educate others on the laws. Thanks for your assistance on this.
