Brian Banks, poster child for false rape claim victims, is back in the news

Brian Banks, would-be NFL start and victim of an egregious false rape claim, is back in the news. He's out making a difference. He's sharing his story with high school students (see here) and he reached out to Jameis Winston (see here). We applaud Brian, and hope that his message is spread far and wide.

Brian's story is a horrifying primer on the injustices faced by too many young black men. We wrote a comprehensive post about Brian's story, and we received this comment from a staff attorney with the California Innocence Project: "Thank you for the amazing write-up on Brian's story. Your write-up is far more comprehensive than any I've seen on the web." Read it here.
