District court's denial of a defendant's habeas petition, alleging that the prosecution violated the Fourteenth Amendment by excluding blacks from the jury on account of their race, is affirmed as the state court's finding that the prosecutor's use of peremptory challenges was motivated by legitimate, race-neutral concerns was clearly not unreasonable.
