Thousands Making a Statement on Racism

Jena, LA is not the easiest city in the world to get to, with it not having an airport or any major city close enough to get to under an hour and half or so.  So its quite a statement being made today by thousands who are flocking there to make a stand against the kind of racism that took place with Mychal Bell and the other 6 students, who were treated drastically different by the school officials and DA than the white students with nooses and a gun.  May the demonstration be a powerful statement not only to Jena but to the nation and may it be peaceful.

    Most of the kids in our Middle and High Schools wore black on Thursday and Friday in support of the Jena 6. It is a sad thing to think that we have not progressed any further than this in all the time since Rosa Parks and MLK.
    Thinking about all of those in this fray today.
