  • Two guys were arreseted near Jena, LA, for hanging nooses from their car; the driver was 18 and got hit with a DUI charge, among others, and the 16-year-old passenger stated that his fam was the KKK. SMH...
  • Where was Obama during all of this? Jesse Jackson wasted no time in slandering Barack for his M.I.A. status.
  • AverageBro threw up a pretty telling editorial on the Jena 6 rallies: I do feel, as he does, that we need to scream "Free the Jena 6" after 9/20/07, but you know how things go these days... flavor of the month, et. al.
  • Earl Ofari Hutchinson wrote a deep piece about how our civil rights leaders let Mychael Bell down...
