The jury panel is decided by private companies with the help of algorithms and computer programs. However, these programs have meticulously helped in eradicating the inclusion of African-American people from the panel. According to survey shown by John Oliver, the number of Latin and black people are reduced significantly from jury. This increases the chances of convicting a black person.

The so-called program can be full of errors, according to surveys shown by John Oliver. It has included a 9-year-old into the panel and excluded 63 percent of capable black jurors. And, these are just the ‘known’ errors. Moreover, trials are even conducted by prosecutors to remove black jurors from the panel. If that does not scream racism, we don’t know what does.
