The Jena 6 Lesson

Q: What was it that got the case of the Jena 6 on the national radar?
A: The internet and determination.

Often, in this microwave society, people make one cry for help and sit back awaiting the calvary. But if you were on fire, would you scream once or keep on screaming until the fire was completely out? I'm sure the latter scenario.

Though this case is FAR from over, I am reminded of a few lessons:

1.The wheels of justice turn slowly for the wronged in search of redemption.
2. People will only do half of what you do for yourself. (If you write 10 letters they may write 5)
3. If you find yourself outnumbered, remember that you are the majority on this planet and with modern technology you can reach your brothers and sisters across the world for help.

I hope that the momentum builds and that those who have a desire to see the liberation of the Blackman and Blackwoman in Ameri.k.k.k.a NEVER give up. A constant drip of water can change a stone and constant pressure will change the minds of those who are trying to hold us down.
