So a poll released yesterday showed that Romney trails Obama by 19 points among women voters. That's a huge thing since there are expected to be about 135 million votes this election, with about 62 million voters being men, 73 million voters being women. Romney has begun trying to target women voters:

I'm posting this just to make sure I'm not missing something, but that is absolutely the wrong application of a pie chart, right?

Yeah, usually you'd use a pie chart to compare parts of a whole, not to contrast unrelated data, like so:

I suppose the whole is something like "money spent on campaigns about Obama's energy record", but yeah, a pie chart is a bit of a strange way to do it.

So having a black on the jury makes them more racist towards whites?

The chart is saying that black people are very charismatic and just one can easily trick a predominantly white jury into jailing a white defendant.

Black magic doesn't penetrate into the American legal system unless a conduit is placed within the courtroom.

The Guardian has an interactive chart about gay rights in the United States. Michigan, Mississippi and Utah are the worst, but not by much.
