Trial by a jury of your politically correct, racially diverse peers

A judge in Pittsburgh postponed a trial because there were not enough black prospective jurors in the jury pool. This raises some interesting questions that are covered in an article about it. Read about it here.

I think there should be an equal opportunity for all citizens in a community to get selected for jury duty. As long as that situation exists the racial makeup of the jury pool should not be a factor in the selection of the jury for a particular trial no more than, say, the number of bald headed men in the jury pool should be. If our system starts using some kind of jury quota system to determine whether an individual gets a fair trial our system of justice is in trouble. If black citizens can demand black juries, then Hispanics, Asians, Croats, Slavs, overweight people, white people, bald men, etc. can too in my opinion.
