It’s interesting the difference in uproar between the Jena six story and the Michael Vick case.
It’s not over yet. As long as one of those young men is still in jail or about to stand trial – then it’s not over. A Jena, Louisiana school board member by the name of Billy Fowler said “Outsiders need to stay away.” Well that’s how Jena was allowed to remain entrenched in 1950 – because outsiders stayed away. Now they have the audacity to demand that we allow their racist ways to go on unchecked – I say we need to be just as audacious as they are. People often ridicule Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, but look what remains in this world.
Don’t let the leaders in Jena off the hook and don’t forget the Jena six.
