i dont want this to turn into an altercation. i just want to know the different opinions.
I think we have enough institutional racism in our society today without overt racism like that in the Jena 6 story. I thought that old school outright stuff was a thing of the past, its really a shame. Also, anyone who posts here should be educated on the WHOLE story, not just the news headlines. do some research before you post an opinion on this.
An opinion here constitutes a bias, because this is not about right or wrong but about tragic responses to perceived threat, about long-embedded fears, about instincts that betray us. We should not express an opinion here, only a feeling -- hopefully of sadness.
i know the whole backstory. i just wanted to know what everyone else thought about it.
This is another thread that I started on this topic:
Separate names with a comma.
