Partly because it's a "man bites dog" story and certain blacks wish to bask in the afterglow of a situation they can get their teeth into. Unless they end up with 10 out of 12 black jurors, that will be another bone of contention. Blacks don't show up for jury duty proportionately to their numbers sp expect a fury over selection.

PS> The new jury selection protocol involves sending out a summons on the first letter so maybe more blacks will participate in the system they often reject.
