This paper was inspired by my experiences as a white criminal procedure professor teaching mostly-white classes and arises at the intersection of WHREN v. UNITED STATES and GRUTTER v. BOLLINGER. The article starts from the premise that criminal procedure remains highly racialized, with blacks experiencing the criminal justice system in significantly different ways than do whites. The article suggests that the lack of minority voices in the classroom poses a significant barrier to effectively teaching criminal procedure and critiques current approaches to criminal procedure pedagogy.
