TED十佳演讲之入门 我们需要谈谈不公(05)


Our system isn't just being shaped in these ways that seem to be distorting around race, they're also distorted by poverty.


We have a system of justice in this country that treats you much better if you're rich and guilty than if you're poor and innocent.


Wealth, not culpability, shapes outcomes. And yet, we seem to be very comfortable.


The politics of fear and anger have made us believe that these are problems that are not our problems. We've been disconnected.


It's interesting to me. We're looking at some very interesting developments in our work.


My state of Alabama, like a number of states, actually permanently disenfranchises you if you have a criminal conviction.


Right now in Alabama 34 percent of the black male population has permanently lost the right to vote.


We're actually projecting in another 10 years the level of disenfranchisement will be as high as it's been since prior to the passage of the Voting Rights Act.


And there is this stunning silence.


I represent children. A lot of my clients are very young.


The United States is the only country in the world where we sentence 13-year-old children to die in prison.


We have life imprisonment without parole for kids in this country.


And we're actually doing some litigation. The only country in the world.


I represent people on death row. It's interesting, this question of the death penalty.


In many ways, we've been taught to think that the real question is, do people deserve to die for the crimes they've committed?

我们从各种渠道了解到 (死刑的)根本问题是,人该不该为他们犯的罪行偿命?

And that's a very sensible question. But there's another way of thinking about where we are in our identity.


The other way of thinking about it is not, do people deserve to die for the crimes they commit, but do we deserve to kill? I mean, it's fascinating.
