RacE: The "Jena 6"

OK. I admit it. I'm white, I am almost 50, and when I grew up segregation (even in the NorthEast) was understood if not accepted.


and I am only scratching the Surface here...

It all began at the start of the school year in 2006, at a school assembly, when Justin Purvis asked if he could sit under the schoolyard tree, a privilege unofficially reserved for white students. The next morning, three nooses were hanging from its broad, leafy branches.

African-American students protested, gathering under the tree.
-----> Soon after, the district attorney, Reed Walters, came to the school with the police, threatening, ----->>>>>"I could end your lives with the stroke of a pen.” <<<---- OK. (Mark Here again. Here are some of the problems in this case.)
  1. The WHITE prosecutor charged the JENA six as adults.
  2. He charged them with assault, and then upgraded charges to ATTEMPTED MURDER of a white student.
  3. He did not charge any of the white students in the previous incident.
  4. HE DENIES that the charges , or the upgraded charges were race related
  5. He DENIES any connection with the NOOSE incident
  6. He Claims that this is just BLACK gang VIOLENCE.

I'm sorry. THIS IS RACISM.

THIS IS the remains of the "Good 'Ole' Boy southern network, where Wink-Wink is how you put the black population down.

Fegget-about it.

Free the remaining HOSTAGE NOW!!!
