Thoughts on the Jena Six
I don't really know what exactly happened with the Jena Six but from what I gather a white kid hung a noose on a tree which is offensive beyond words, inflammatory only begins to describe it. That said, beating somebody till they are unconcious, then beating them some more afterwards doesn't strike me as particulary kosher either. Even if there was significant provocation, which there clearly was here.
