Removal to federal court of criminal case

As a pro se litigant it is often difficult to get all the case law. Unfortunately my previous motion for removal of a criminal case has been denied and rightfully because of really unfortunate rulings by the US Supreme Court. In Georgia v. Rachel, 384 U.S. 780 (1966) the court ruled that 28 U.S.C 1443 removal of criminal cases applies only if a federal civil right was compromised due to racial discrimination. In Johnson v Mississippi, 421 U.S. 213 (1975) the court ruled that removal cannot be used to fight a State unconstitutional law, to enforce the Bill of rights or as a broad assertion that equal protection or due process rights are compromised.
