Free Genarlow Wilson

I don't know if racism or just idiocy by the prosecutor explains why black Genarlow Wilson sits in prison for receiving consensual filetio from a fellow teenager, a white girl. But:

1. A white appellite judge has ruled in his favor, with a statement from the bench labeling his prosecution and conviction "a miscarriage of justice."
2. His white classmates made him homecoming king.
3. A group of rich white guys have raised $1 million to get him out on bail during the white prosecutor's appeal of the above appellate judge's ruling.

I hope that the Duke guys will rally around Wilson, and I regret that prosecutor seems to have covered himself much better than Nifong, protecting himself from ethics charges.
