Swelling the population of Jena, LA

Today is my birthday and the best gift I could have received is seeing people stand up for the Jena 6 in massive numbers.

Currently watching the CNN Special Investigation on the Jena 6 and I’m amazed that people don’t understand that you may think there is no racism, and you may think that things are peachy, but if you’re white, that opinion doesn’t mean much. Don’t read too much into that statement. What I’m saying is that hearing the whites in town say there’s no racism in town is like hearing a convict say that they’re innocent. The people that have been oppressed in Jena, have lived under that oppression for decades. The whites in Jena of course think there is no problem and of course the blacks think they’re awash in problems.

My questions: Where is the Governor or Attorney General in all this? How about the President? One woman says the town needs to learn the lessons of the past – in the year 2007, that they haven’t learned these lessons, is a testament to what’s wrong in this town.

My thanks to everyone that went there. I wish I could be with you.

    Not only is there almost no coverage in the corporate media of black violent crimes against white people, but in high profile cases they proffer the black criminals as ‘real victims’.

    To illustrate the bias, imagine if the facts were reversed – if a gang of six white kids led by someone with four previous convictions for violent-crime had attacked a lone black student, kicking and stomping him into unconsciousness. As far as the corporate media are concerned, they would be interviewing the black victim on every TV talk show across the land, discussing his fear, his pain, his suffering. They would be interviewing his crying relatives and friends. They would not be voicing any fear that the white attackers would be treated too harshly, or even that they would be treated at all.

    No one knows who hung up those nooses, but clearly ‘white racists’ lost out the most from it.

    What media are you watching? Is it Nancy Grace and her “white blondes in trouble watch” that airs nightly on CNN?
