Wear Black Tomorrow for Jena 6


On September 20, 2007 more than 1 million people will wear BLACK as we unite in one voice with one message to declare that UN-EQUAL JUSTICE is just not acceptable. The world will be watching when not just African Americans but people of all races take a stand for something that we all believe in. Mychal Bell and the Jena Six should be free. If you have not heard about their case and why these average teenagers, good students, great athletes and are now fighting for their lives (one student Mychal Bell has been in jail since Dec. 2006) please CLICK HERE NOW to view this video for the shock of your life. This is clearly a case of racism, but the protest in Jena, LA, the US and around the world is not an attack on white people but against a system that has failed us all. It is not about black and white but about what is wrong and what is right!

Enough is Enough...Un-Equal Justice is just not acceptable! ..Wear Black on September 20th to show your support!

I agree. It is clearly a case of racism. No child or person should ever be taunted with threats of such horrific violence.

It is a step backward in a country that has fought hard to overcome our past and to move forward.

I have posted on this issue myself. You are invited to come leave a comment, I would so appreciate it.

I am a white adoptive mom of a black son and it kills me to see how these young men have been unfairly treated.
My son is only three, but someday this could be him. Even though he is a sweet and wonderful, beautiful boy, it could happen to him.
