So tomorrow there’s a march in Jena, Louisiana. I’m very glad that those that are attending, aren’t “staying the hell home”. I wish I could be with them because what’s going on in Jena is true racism. So many people play the race card when it isn’t warranted. Not to say, that there aren’t varying degrees of racism, but what these young men are putting up with, is far more than I’ve seen in my 39 years. It’s been over a century since slavery ended, but the vestiges of it are live and kicking in the south.
Tomorrow night on CNN they’ll be running a special report Special Investigations Unit: Judgment in Jena. I’m glad CNN has been so big in getting the word out. I’m thankful it has kicked Hollywood starlets out of the limelight.
