ciroccoj: (general ick at people)
From my Evidence text, under judicial notice (i.e. judges not requiring proof for some stuff that's just common sense, like "the sky is blue" and "racism exists"):

Derrick Bell, an outstanding African American scholar of critical race issues, described the phenomenon as "a widespread assumption that blacks, unlike whites, cannot be objective on racial issues and will favor their own no matter what." Bell notes that in the American context: "Black judges hearing racial cases are eyed suspiciously and sometimes asked to recuse themselves in favor of a white judge - without those making the request even being aware of the paradox in their motions."
