Is anyone else as mad as I am

Recommended Posts

This story saddens me.

It's baffling that in this day and age, racism is still alive and thriving.

I am so glad Mychal Bell's conviction was overturned on Friday. However, he still sits in jail.

The fact that Jena has trees deemed for only whites, or any certain race, is disgusting and appalling.

Racism is such a stupid, stupid thing.

we say that because we werent raised in it. In my neighborhood which very diverse it is discouraging to listen to the kids disrespect the seniors of 80+ who mind has taken back to childhood and may call one of them gal or fellow. My neighbor once told me I was not like them Im different . I just said thank you. she is 65 with the onset of alzheimers so I didnt get offended but the neighbors said I would not take that from her I would have cussed her out. For what she didnt mean anything by it.

 

Yet you call each other the N word and it is suppose to be ok.

 

I can not deal.

Lady P,

 

Agreed. Ageism and racism are alive and well. Sadly.

I am so glad I was not raised to be small-minded.

 

Off topic: I noticed your wedding date says "Someday."

Do you guys have any idea of what season or a year it will be? Exciting!

I mentally have June 26 08 planned out. But he has not fully argreed. He said whatever you want. Now when I start writing checks to pay fo rthis date he may have a different smart comment. He has picked out and started a DIY favor.

Thanks for providing contact information. I will definitely sit down and write a letter in support. I think it's about time Americans step up and stop allowing these injustices to continue. I of course knew racism still existed, but I had no idea our law allowed incidences like this to go unchallenged. It's sickening.

WEAR BLACK ON SEPT. 20

 

 

Mark this day in your book. Michael Baisden is asking all to attend the

 

sentencing of the Jena 6, Louisiana young black boys on September 20,

 

2007. These boys can go to prison for life behind a high school fight

 

against white students. This is serious family, and could be any one of

 

our youths. If you are unable to show up and send a message about

 

Racism, then Michael Baisden is asking all to wear Black that day for

 

Unity and say a silent or loud prayer for those young men who are

 

fighting racism on behalf of us all.

 

 

 

Pass this important news to everyone. Spread the word.

A coworker just told me about this story this morning. I was (and am) horrified. Besides the obvious "how can this still be happening in 2007?", how did I not hear about this before? I look at lots of online news sites and I never saw anything about this.
