"You can't tell me someone somewhere (on that court, perhaps?) isn't thinking, quite smugly, 'We showed them.' "

I wish I could tell you otherwise, but no, I can't. I'm convinced that's what some people are thinking right now.

Elle, I just want to say that you have been on a roll lately with your writing. This is some very powerful stuff you've been blogging. Keep at it, girl.

I also want to thank you for all the Jena Six posts. I've known about this for months, thanks to you. I've been able to talk about it this week with people who just learned about the Jena Six and to educate them beyond the soundbites. I don't think I would have been able to do that if not for your posts, because these kids just weren't getting much coverage in the so-called mainstream media for some time. So thanks for all you've written,and I'm sorry that some ignorant fools have left comments.

Well I read your post from July, too, and I agree.

It's very frustrating. I keep reading all these identical comments from white people that get interviewed in Jena. "Jena's not a racist town. We all get along very well here. Just come to a football game, or come hang out here. You'll see. Why are y'all just coming around pointing fingers and causing problems?"

Excuse me???

Then every person of color who is interviewed indeed confirms that there is racial tension and discrimination happening on a continual basis.

I'm so frustrated with the lack of coverage of this issue, although finally it's hitting the news here because of the protest yesterday. I first heard about it through a blog I was reading, and that wasn't until LAST MONTH. Keep blogging. Keep shining the light on the darkness that is still alive and well in our not-so-United States.
