Now - honestly:

Do we honestly live in a world where this headline might be real?

Admit it... you checked to see if this was the 'funny' subverse or if it was the onion.

Honestly had to check to see if this was satire or real. How fucking sad is that?

i'll be honest: i was surprised it was on the onion and thus not real. i expected the judge to have some fucked up pseudo-logic to defend his bullshit

I didn't check, because I've had this video saved to my computer for like six years.

You mean she's going to have a Black Lives Matter rally of 10,000 blacks for her?

And her home city will be burnt down and the cop that arrested her will be harassed into leaving and quitting his job?

No she didn't get killed by the police because she was arrested as a white woman.

Well, white women don't run up to the cops' faces like your typical negro.

Is this going to be another case where the Onion accidentally reports real news from the future?

Bloody hell, it is going to be one of those times, isn't it?

The joke plays on the fact that black men are tried more harshly in courts than pretty young women. By trying her as a black man, she is sure to receive a worse sentence than she would otherwise. It mocks the court system by pointing out how people aren't just judged by the crime they committed, but by other factors that should be irrelevant given that justice is supposed to be blind.

Even the onion couldn't say "tried as a man". Calling out sexism is sexist, yo, when its women reaping the rewards.
