James Kelly, head of the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, reacting to incendiary remarks by State Supreme Court Justices Richard Sanders and Jim Johnson:

"What are these two guys doing on the State Supreme Court?" Kelly asked.

He is calling for Supreme Court Chief Justice Barbara Madsen to "establish a special commission on racial disproportions in the criminal-justice system and to make recommendations on how to modernize the system and ensure equal justice before the law," according to an Urban League news release.

"Clearly if two seated justices think there are more African Americans in jail only because they have a crime problem, then there's a problem that goes to the top," Kelly said.
