"A jury of my peers"

World-readable

That reminds me of a line from Samuel L Jackson's character in A Time to Kill. When he was on trial for murdering the people who had killed his daughter, and the jury selection was complete, every person on the jury turned out to be a white male in their 60s, wearing a suit.

He shook his head and said, "So this is a jury of my peers?"

I distrust few things more deeply than acts of literary explication.
