    A travesty of justice is occurring again in our country and I thought I'd bring it to your attention in case you are not aware. These are the facts as I understand them:

    THERE IS AN OAK TREE ON THE SCHOOL GROUNDS IN JENA, LOUISIANA. HISTORICALLY BLACKS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SIT UNDER THIS TREE. IN SEPTEMBER OF 2006 A GROUP OF BLACK STUDENTS DECIDED TO CHALLENGE THE AGE OLD TRADITION BY SIMPLY SITTING UNDER THIS TREE. THE NEXT DAY AFTER THEIR 'SILENT PROTEST' THEY DISCOVERED THAT THREE NOOSES WERE HANGING FROM THE TREE. THE PRINCIPAL IDENTIFIED THE STUDENTS WHO HUNG THE NOOSES ON THE TREE AND SUSPENDED THREE WHITE STUDENTS.

    THAT'S WHEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. ALMOST EVERY DAY THERE WAS A FIGHT ON THE SCHOOL GROUNDS AND AT INTEGRATED PARTIES. ON ONE OCCASION A WHITE MAN AIMED A LOADED RIFLE AT SOME BLACK STUDENTS; ON ANOTHER OCCASION A WING OF THE SCHOOL WAS BURNED TO THE GROUND.

    THE COUNTY PROSECUTOR CALLED A MEETING AT THE SCHOOL WITH THE BLACK STUDENTS AND WARNED THEM THAT IF THEY KEPT UP THEIR AGITATING THAT HE WOULD SEE TO IT THAT THEY WERE SENT TO PRISON FOR A VERY LONG TIME. IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR HIM TO MAKE GOOD ON HIS THREAT. DAYS AFTER A FIGHT BETWEEN A GROUP OF BLACK STUDENTS AND ONE WHITE STUDENT WHICH LEFT THE WHITE STUDENT UNCONSCIOUS; SIX BLACK STUDENTS WERE ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER. THEY ARE NOW BEHIND BARS AWAITING TRIAL AND STAND TO SERVE 20 YEARS TO LIFE. CNN REPORTED THAT THE FIRST OF THE SIX WAS FOUND GUILTY BY AN ALL-WHITE JURY AND WILL BE SENTENCED NEXT WEEK. LIKE THE IMUS CASE WE CANNOT LET THIS STAND. YOU MUST; YOU MUST GET INVOLVED.

    Here's how; please goggle 'while seated' and you will see several choices. Select the one entitled 'while seated; Jena Six'. Go to the fourth page and you'll see an icon marked: online petition :Jena Six. Please log on and sign the petition. When I first entered my signature it was only at 435; I checked today and its 856. That's still much too low; we need at least 10,000 signatures before the system will take Black folks seriously.

    Folks you don't have to walk across the Pettis Bridge in Selma; you don't have to walk to work for a year like they did in Montgomery; you don't have to sit-in at a lunch counter in Charleston, South Carolina and get beat up or lynched; you don't have to ride a Greyhound bus worrying about getting bombed or burned alive in Money Mississippi. All you got to do is push a **** button!!!! PLEASE
