* In ''Film/TheGreenMile'' around the 1930's a huge and seemingly intellectually disabled black man is found holding the bloodied and raped bodies of two little (white) girls. The reason was that he'd found them and tried to bring them back with his healing powers. He'd most likely have gotten the death penalty even if he wasn't a black man found at the scene of a brutal crime in the 1930's South (and he got a racist attorney, to boot).
