Lindsay Lohan Benefits from White Privilege
Let's put this in perspective:
The woman achieved 2 DUIs in a single month, committed assault, and theft, yet her time in jail pales in comparison to what us regular people would face in the same situation. She's not getting put away anytime soon. Unless her name was Laquetha or Tyquerius. Our justice system works best when motivated by the values of prevention, redemption and equality: protecting the public from unlawful and dangerous behavior, helping troubled people to reclaim their lives and ensuring that the law is applied fairly and evenhandedly.
For the racists that claim erroneously that blacks commit the most crimes, IT IS A SENTENCING DISPARITY BASED ON SOCIO ECONOMIC FACTORS.
At this point the criminal justice system, the judges, the lawyers, the prosecutors are her enablers. This is a person who looks up to and idolizes Marilyn Monroe and if the courts, her family and Lindsay herself don't get real about her addictive personality, she will end up in a semen soaked death alone in a pool, just like her idol.
