    it's so sad that we live in america black ,white and every other nationality but at the end of the day when a black man tell the truth, he is not believed and if a WHITE WOMAN IS WITH THEM SHE OR he is consider less and also unbelieveable, we are the most ones with injustice against us,hate against us,lied on i was brought to tears reading this story, yes they were released and finally believed but at what cost,they will never be the same always have mistrust in the system, always looking over their shoulders,and so much has changed since they have been locked up,trying to adapt back into society i pray that they have strong family support and friends,i pray that they can live fulfilled lives,...

    On Saturday, Melissa Harris Perry used her weekly “letter” to address out-going North Carolina Governor Bev Purdue.
    Her request? Pardon the Wilmington 10 — nine men and a woman who in 1972 were convicted of arson in a case that many saw as government overreach against civil rights activists.
