Default Black/White Race Relations Hits a Low in Jena, LA

Thousands of people are gathering in Jena, La., this morning to protest the jailing of six black teenagers accused of beating a white classmate, in an incident that some see as the culmination of racial strife that started on the first day of school a year ago.

I think it's a high point that people are outraged over this.

but aside from the fact that every political chancer has gotten on the bandwagon, at least the kid who's spent all these months in jail, first on remand, then convicted, then awaiting sentence.... has now had his sentence overturned by the appeal court and is free after a bond hearing. And hopefully the powers that be will deal with ALL the aspects of this case in a more open and fair manner.

You failed to identify the pathetic attempt to render a southern accented version of "sure"... but hopefully caught the sense of the rest. Have a nice day y'all.
