Quote 28

"Aw you know dem white mens wuzn’t gointuh do nothin’ tuh no woman dat look lak her." (19.178)

The words "lak her" imply something akin to "so beautiful!" The accompanying implication is more serious, suggesting that white men base their judgments partially on the defendant’s looks and allow their libidos to influence their verdicts. The insinuation is that beautiful women are let off more easily in court than other people.
