Update: Jena 6 vs Racist Retards


Mychal Bell, a black high school student, faces up to 22 years in prison for a schoolyard fight initiated by white students, who hung three nooses in a tree at the high school courtyard, to warn black students not to sit there. Despite this act of terrorism, heroic black students sat under the tree in solidarity and protest against the hate crime. The DA was called onto the campus to warn the black students that he could take their life away with the "stroke of a pen".

The faculty also dismissed the terrorist threat as a "prank". Several fights ensued in the following days. During one of the fights, a white student was mildly injured. On that day, Six black students, the Jena 6, were arrested. They now face a lifetime in prison.

300 people rallied in Jena Louisiana on 7/31/07 to mobilize, protest, and pressure public officials in favor of the Jena 6. Citizens came from as far as California to show their support, leadership, and commitment to correct this educational and governmental act of terror.

45,000 people have signed a petition ordering DA Reed Walters to drop the charges.

On a related note, the school board chopped down the tree.

Bang your monkey:
Contact Governor Blanco and demand a pardon for the Jena 6 and for racist LaSalle, Louisianan DA Reed Walters and the Jena police to be investigated.

If it really were a war on terror they'd arrest the KKK.
