Jeremiah Munsen, 18, and a juvenile, both of Grant Parish, arrested in Alexandria for riding in a red pickup truck with a hangman’s noose hanging form the bedrail. And they thought it would be us causing the problem.
I hope that the rest of this nation and the world has heard this news, as everyone though that those (blacks) in attendance at the march and rally for the “Jena Six” would surely cause some type of trouble, and the rally would get out of hold.
Low and bold, the rally and march was peaceful in every sence of the word, and those participating should be proud of themselves for the way they acted, and carried out this event.
Do you think that the whites in Jena were shocked when nothing happened?
And get this, it was two whites who started trouble by riding around with nooses hanging from their truck.
Now, they ouught to be shame of themselves, and their white brothers and sisters who though that the blacks would cause the trouble ought to be shame of themselves.
To my brothers and sisters, thanks for the good participation, and thanks for showing the world that all blacks are not trouble makers.
God be with each of us, Mychal Bell, his family, and the rest of the “Jena Six” and their families.
When we came to Jena , we came with a “Spirit of Love” and that loved showed that we can “Present Our Best To The World”. There is strength in our numbers and America and the world saw it. To the many people who bred instigation and divisiveness, their plans for failure to this historical moment did not occur as many had hoped for. We have a long way to go and this is just the beginning of many. As Americans we must re-evaluate our values and have the courage and commitment to transform our minds and our communties. Have we become so comfortable that we have forgotten what those before us went through to enter into the fabric of American society? Many need to wake up because we have yet to arrive. The journey is not over, it has only begun. Many people were fearful of revisiting the 1960’s and many people hoped that the 1960’s would have been repeated because of their hatred of their fellow human beings. It didn’t happen and each and everyone of us whether we have children or not are reponsible for what has happened in our communities. I’ve lived in this country long enough to know that there are two types of justice and favortism. There exist in this country an inequality under the law. And if you don’t think that it exist and I’m making excuses for someones failure to participate in American society, then you and others are in denial. If any of you would ask your children about some of the incidents that they see and witness themselves at their schools, you’d be suprised to what they will say. The adults at Jena High and in the City of Jena should have been responsible enough and had the integrity to protect each and everyone of those children. If they had did their JOB, I believe none of this would have happened! A person of good character sees no color when passing out any type of discipline, this person shows no favoritism and is fair and impartial to what anyone has to say or do. They are reponsible for their own decisions and not to the decisions of others. They have the courage to make a stand for what is right, no matter what the consequences are. This state and some of it’s citizens constantly reveals itself and it seems that ignorance and utter stupidity is bliss…. Let’s see what the law does to them?????
Have any of you folks ever heard of a little known part of our Constitution called the First Amendment. It’s clear a couple rednecks cannot really threaten 200 demonstrators. They were simply expressing their hatred, disagreement, and other uncouth emotions. Nasty thoughts, no doubt, but protected speech under our Constitution. We’re supposed to tolerate speech that we abhor, remember. Otherwise, why do we allow all this anti-Christian and anti-White propaganda in our popular culture.
