In the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, the judge called one of the jurors “Black” just two days before the killer was found not guilty on all counts on Nov. 19. Rittenhouse killed two people at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha.
After the jury acquitted the killer on all charges, racist Judge Bruce Schroeder told the jury that they were “the best” he’s ever worked with.
Schroeder referred to a former juror and called them “Black” while rambling about a clerk he let choose the juror names 20 years ago for a trial where the defendant was also Black.
“There were 13 jurors, one of whom was Black,” he said. “And when the clerk, the government official, drew the name out of the tumbler, it was a Black, the Black, the only Black. There was nothing wrong with it, it was all OK, but what do they talk about — optics, nowadays … That was a bad optic, I thought.”
The racist judge also joked about Asian food.
Rittenhouse drove from Antioch, Ill. to Kenosha, Wis. On Aug. 23, armed with a semiautomatic Smith & Wesson M&P 15 to confront Black Lives Matters protesters. He killed Anthony Huber, 26, and 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum, claiming self-defense despite both men being un-armed. A third man who was armed was also shot but survived.
The NAACP commented about the verdict on Twitter.
“The verdict in the #KyleRittenhouse case is a travesty and fails to deliver justice on behalf of those who lost their lives as they peacefully assembled to protest against police brutality and violence.”

Others also reacted to the disgusting Kyle Rittenhouse verdict on social media.
“The good news is that white men & boys can still kill whoever they want and do NO jail time! Isn’t that fun! And he killed white people! I bet little #KyleRittenhouse is gonna go right out and take some more white power pics with #TheProudBoys & plan his next massacre.”

If #KyleRittenhouse had been black, we'd all be fighting over why the cops who killed him aren't on trial.

Schroeder went on to babble about Rittenhouse having the right to talk about his story as much or as little as he pleased and damn near gave the killer a medal after he was acquitted.
