Jena 6

No this isn't a Cinemax soft-core movie, but I implore, I urge, I demand that my loyal four readers go sign this petition. What happened/happens in Jena, LA, needs to stop & people need to be held accountable. For those among us who are too young to remember the hoses, the billy clubs, the dogs, the angry white people on the teevee back in the day, this struggle didn't end. Racism is deep, & with a soft apology to the great Buffalo Springfield, & into your heart it will creep. We need to keep fighting this conservative sewer-mentality. We don't have to like a kid, but we cannot, cannot, put a noose in a tree. That sort of statement only hurts America.
