DALLAS — Justice is supposed to be blind. But a new poll claims some people think a person’s skin color really does affect how a cop reacts.

According to the National Bar Association, an organization of African-American lawyers and judges, 88% of blacks believe black people are not treated fairly by the police. And 59% of whites believe the same thing.

To some people, unfair police treatment is a black and white issue. The problem is, it’s “not” so black and white to fix.
