Jack Johnson Pardon

Jj We previously blogged on posthumous pardons.  A USA Today columnist writes in support of a pardon for boxer Jack Johnson.  NYLS LawProf Denise Morgan has an excellent paper on Johnson, Jack Johnson and the American Racial Hierarchy, in Race on Trial (Oxford 2002), and from what I understand, he may deserve a pardon.  But I'm not sure I agree with the suggestion that Tiger Woods has a special obligation to lend his name to the case, any more than any other American.  [Jack Chin]
