Thousands rally in La. to support Jena 6 By MARY FOSTER, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 7 minutes ago



JENA, La. - Traffic jammed the two-lane road leading into the tiny town of Jena early Thursday as thousands of demonstrators gathered in support of six black teens initially charged with attempted murder in the beating of a white classmate.

ADVERTISEMENT

The Rev. Al Sharpton said it could be the beginning of the 21st century's civil rights movement, one that would challenge disparities in the justice system.

"You cannot have justice meted out based on who you are rather than what you did," Sharpton told CBS's "The Early Show" Thursday.

The six were charged a few months after the local prosecutor declined to charge three white high school students who hung nooses in a tree on their high school grounds. Five of the black teens were initially charged with attempted murder, but that charge was reduced to battery for all but one, who has yet to be arraigned; the sixth teen was charged as a juvenile.

"This is the most blatant example of disparity in the justice system that we've seen," Sharpton said Thursday. "You can't have two standards of justice. We didn't bring race in it, those that hung the nooses brought the race into it."


my response, so when did white kids hanging 3 nooses in a tree automatically mean it was meant towards blacks!?! white people were hung too back then, along with witches and prolly a few spanish people thrown in there too. maybe the kids are saying we should go back to hangings. the white kids did nothing violent towards anybody. Sharpton feels that the black kids are being punished because they are black, not becuase of the crime they committed... BS....give me a break!!!
My take on this whole shyt:

Nooses in a tree has for over 300 years had associations with the lynching and torturing of blacks. To act as if you were oblivious to this is, frankly, highly aggravating. That aside, the subsequent actions of the 6 kids who cowardly beat up a single white kid for these actions warrant their arrest and should not be retracted- although I think the trying them as adults may be a bit questionable (I don't know the specific details of the case other than what has been reported in the mainstream media so I refrain judgment for now). In the end, the kids who ganged up on the white kid are cowards and the individuals who hung the nooses were cowards, the white boy that got whooped deserves justice and all parties were wrong (except for the guy who got beat up because there is no mention of what he may or may not have done to prompt the beating).

That is the beautiful thing about the google/yahoo/aol/etc. search engines. There are a lot of articles relating to the events and well as the events prior to these cases. There are articles showing petitioners wanting bigger government to get involved. There are stories that speak of all the indicents like 3 (i think Jena's) were at a grocery store and a (white) man pulled out a 12 gauge shot gun that (maybe insignificantly) had a red laser attached to the side of it. He came up with a story completely different than the three boys. There is just so much to read about. There are stories showing Bell's criminal history and everyone else for that matter. There are stories showing that the one the jena's got busted in the head at (a majority) white house party three days prior to his arrest.



So for the guy who said that Bell is a little is quite... dogmatic.

That is all.

ok before I say what I want to say let me clearify I am not racist by any means!!
This just seems like the black community always makes a big deal out of everything that they feel they are not treated fairly about. If it's not one thing it's another. Don't get me wrong this is sad and upsetting, however there are ways to get your point across. Being public (shutting the town down) get's you nowhere and creates more drama with the community, plus they can't do anything. Why dont they just write, make an appointment, ect to the important people?
Now I am not just saying the black community makes big deals, but they are the ones who make big deals about "not be treated fairliy". Whites make big deals of stupid stuff like...ex of protest:gays, abortions, ect. Hispanics protest about their freedom, in a country they illegally came to. Asians... it can't think of anything for them.
Basically we're all pink on the inside, so why does it always turn into a race matter? Now I know my post will start all sort of negative comments, but I am just pointing it out like I see it.

You guys didn't grow up in Louisiana, so I don't think you could have a proper respect for the situation. Even though we're not too far from it, Texas is completely different from Louisiana in most places. The white kids who hung the noose in the tree DID commit a crime. It's at least a breach of peace. The six black kids are not angels. They should not be free from punishment.


The lesson to be learned here is that violence is never the right path. Martin Luther King Jr. paved the way for non-violent protest in America. Now these kids are practically spitting on his grave with their actions.

How is TX different than LA? Not sure if you keep up with news outside of Houston, but there are constantly little towns that have racism issues in TX. Blacks towards whites, whites towards black, hispanics towards everyone...you name it, it's just as well alive in TX as it is over in LA.

I say to this, look at history. Why is it that it is necessary that there is legislation establishing blacks as human (When there si no such legislation for whites or races)? Why is it necessary to have legislation establishing that blacks should have the right to vote and yet again, there is not legislation of the same nature for our white and other counterparts? It wasn't 50 years ago that blacks were required to attend different schools than whites and less than 30 years ago, required to ride different buses. History, is why many blacks make "a big deal" out of shyt, particularly when it pertains to racism and social injustice.

LA and MS are completely different animals than what we have here in TX, trust...if you don't believe, compare and contrast civil and state court journals for all
