Broward County Court Judge, Group 13 Candidate Betsy Benson told African-American audiences it is a scientific fact that white people cannot reliably identify people of color in a court of law. Last week, Benson made the shocking statement at an event hosted by the NAACP. On Monday, Benson’s statement was recorded at a black pastors event in Fort Lauderdale.
Benson stated, “A white person identifying a person of color is usually wrong because cross-racial identification is highly suspect.”


At a Monday evening forum hosted by the Weston Republican Club, Benson failed to make her racially-charged case. During the Q&A session, REDBROWARD asked Benson to explain her comments.
