Kenny, though you have made your case, you are missing the what is stated in the second part of that sentence,...,becoming only the second White person executed for KILLING a Black person since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976.<quoted text>
A White man in Raleigh, NC, recently was put to death for RAPING and killing a Black cheerleader, becoming only the second White person executed for killing a Black person since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976.
Kermit Smith Jr. was the 259th person to be executed since the 1976 U.S. Supreme Court decision allowing states to resume using the death penalty.
Smith, 37, was convicted in the 1980 RAPE and murder of Whelette Collins,
Do you not see the word RAPE?
Again, this gives room for the question, although he was CHARGED for the rape, was he convicted of rape? Your post pertaining to putting this crap to rest lacks sufficient evidence supporting this conviction.
