In my previous post detailing the involvement of OMSJ and Clark Baker in the Nushawn Williams Case I wrote from a very tempered point of view. I wrote that post as a reporter would; trying to not divulge my personal feelings. I quoted Mr. Baker in his own words regarding the racist element of this case as well as the case of Andre Davis.
In my previous post from yesterday, I alluded to elements of racism in the Nushawn Williams Case as well as the Andre Davis Case; both cases that Baker and OMSJ lost in a resounding defeat. During my research I found more definitive words from Mr. Baker himself posted at the site of his good friend Celia Farber regarding his baseless assertion of racism attributed to the jury:
This afternoon I received this email from OMSJ’s Clark Baker, about the Nushawn Williams Civil Commitment verdict in Buffalo:
Nushawn just called me – he said that the jury deliberated for 25 minutes before finding him guilty. I told him that there are a lot of constitutional problems with the law and that we will be involved in his appeal. He’s very down – says that his life is over. I told him to keep the faith and that I am confident that the decision will be overturned on one of many grounds.
Baron, David, Nancy, and Rodney worked very hard on this case. Nushawn’s conviction had nothing to do with HIV or your assistance. The public perception was just too much to overcome.
This is a sad but not unexpected decision. It’s easier to put him away than explain to their white neighbors why they released him into their white community. After thirty years, this is the first time I’ve ever blamed racism for a conviction. I hope to never see it again.
“After thirty years, this is the first time I’ve ever blamed racism for a conviction.”
As I pointed out in my post from yesterday, this is NOT the first time Mr. Baker has “ever blamed racism for a conviction.”
I doubt that Judge Metz wants to be known as the judge who released a black AIDS-infected man to defile Cincinnati ‘s white womenfolk… His opponents in the next election would have a field day!

In the case of Andre Davis, Mr. Baker obviously “blamed racism for a conviction” by blaming Judge Metz
I do not feel the need to go on with this post. Mr. Baker, in his own words, has blamed racism on verdicts in not one, but two cases.
By his own words, Mr. Baker is not only a racist, but a misogynist as well: Who else would use the unflattering term “womenfolk”? Mr. Baker can blame race, gender or anyone else, but in the end only Mr. Baker’s very own words can ascribe his personal views.
It is obvious that the only racist, misogynistic person here is that person who refuses to accept the truth and decides to ascribe the truth to 12 jurors and 1 one judge that he has not taken the time to interview.
