In multiethnic London would most trial jurors be non-white in the trials of whites accused of racism?

    If it reflected the demographic of London, it would be 60% white. However it should come as no surprise to you that there are some racists around, so the defence can object to anyone they thought would prejudice a fair trial.

  • When the Jury is selected, the defence team can reject any juror they want without having to give a reason.  If having an all white or all male jury is seen as being to the benefit of the defence, that's what they get.

    A jury representative of the population would be majority white but not majority of British ancestry.
