What do the Jena 6 demonstrators want? They say justice. But doesn't that mean keeping the kids in jail?? They committed a crime. At first they were charged with attempted murder. Then the charged was lessened. Now they face the lesser charge of battery. Did they not commit battery? Yes. And now they have to go to court for it.
I saw signs that said free Jena 6. They are freed. Except one who has to hear what he's officially being charged with. That's why he's still in jail! It's called habeus corpus.
They say blacks are standing together. No we aren't. Don't throw me into your gang.
These guys are criminals and should be prosecuted like criminals.
The three neuces have nothing to do with it. That incident happened three months before the attack.
So let me get this straight. Some racist white kids threw neuces up on a tree. And got suspended for it. Then SIX black kids beat up ONE white kid three months later who had nothing to do with it? Yea there's some injustice; for the poor white boy who got his ass kicked just because of the COLOR OF HIS SKIN.
Making a neuce is not a crime. Nor is displaying it. But jumping someone til they're bloody is.
So the real point in all this is that the black boys' feelings were hurt when they saw the neuces.
"Some white people still don't like us." That's what all those demonstrators should be shouting.
How can you force the nation to like you? They don't like you, they don't like you. You got two options: change or get over it. And obviously we aren't changing so I guess we have to just GET OVER IT.
You can't legislate love. I think that's what we as a race don't understand. All we are is just a bunch of red-headed step-children. We never really felt like Americans. And we always felt a little left out. Nobody wants to play with us.
I don't think we need the world to change, I think we need to grow up.
