want to get in touch with "Hurricane" Carter. Do you have an email address
This website is dedicated to the proposition that Carter is not a hero,
not an inspiration, and certainly not a role model. This site is most
definitely not a Carter fan site. If you are looking for African American
heroes for a school project,
there are so many inspirational

you a racist or what?
No, I'm not. Here
is the definition of racism: "a belief in the innate superiority of
a particular race; antagonism towards members of a different race
based on this belief." If you find any racist ideas or statements
in this website, please draw them to my attention.

Yes. Carter counts
on receiving the sympathy and indignation of all decent people who are
appalled at racism and injustice. But he gets that sympathy by telling
do you spend so much time on this? It all happened a long time ago.
A lot of
things that happened a long time ago still matter a great deal. I
feel that the public has been deceived about Carter's case, a case
which is used to shape people's feelings about American justice and
race relations. The "Hurricane" movie is used as a teaching tool in
our public schools. It's important for people to know that there is
no evidence that Carter was framed.
I take exception
to director Norman Jewison's claim
that the The Hurricane is about "the celebration of the
human spirit and the triumph of love over hate." The movie is
a chance for some people to engage in what Thomas Sowell calls "moral
preening." Jewison and the movie makers get to pat themselves
on the back for being against racism, while flinging mud at a lot
of people who don't deserve to be vilified.
Why are you wasting time on this?
Or, I could cruise the internet, like you do, and tell other people
they are wasting their time -- that sounds like a good
contribution to humanity.
don't you do something really worthwhile, like helping people who've
been wrongfully convicted?
Glad you asked.

convicted people whose stories I tell. They were convicted of "Imaginary
