A Jena Perspective
Thousands of people took to the streets in Jena to protest for justice in the Jena 6 trial.
It was a peaceful and disciplined protest.
And the protest remained peaceful even when two white teenage boys decided to represent whiteness by driving this truck through the streets of Jenna. They had a noose on either side of this red truck.
This then is what they were representing in 2007. And they are not alone by far.
Jena = AmeriKKKa. Still.
There can be no conditional freedom, anywhere.
