    Abstract:
    Anthony Amsterdam urged litigators and scholars to focus on individual prosecutors' offices or counties and to identify "a set of local institutions, conventions, and practices which are manifestly the residues of classic Southern apartheid"; to "conduct analyses of the impact of race in the sentencing patterns ... in those specific counties or venues"; and to "investigate, analyze, and prepare evidence of the legacy of apartheid embedded in the counties' political, economic, and social life, particularly as it bears on law enforcement, prosecution, and courthouse customs." The goal, Amsterdam says, is "to build a case not solely on statistical evidence of discrimination but to supplement it with evidence of anecdotes and local custom."
