Jena 6. The 6 beat up someone. Why are so many people ignorant to that fact that when someone gets beat up, the people that beat them should be punished. Do they educate the people down there?

I think that all those protestors, black "leaders" etc. are all scum! These six pieces of garbage SHOULD be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and if the blacks want to riot about it etc. then let the trash riot! These 6 cowards severely beat a white kid ITS PURE AND SIMPLE! This along with many other incidents is doing alot to hurt black and white relations! Maybe segregation wasn't such a bad Idea after all if this is what happens when they are mixed with us!

I love all my black friends and would never want to be seperated from them at school. There are just always stupid people out there. I really don't see how they can call us all racist when I see plenty of towns that have nothing but criminals. You don't hear anyone judging them though.

Hey- I'm offended! Name calling is not inherently unintelligent! I find it a trusty tool in Comedy. Granted, there are some dim bulbs on this thread, but no more so than what we find in any quarter in this country. I say, "More name calling!"....you know, for the troops...

Doesn't anyone see the real point? The year is 2007 and someone of a different color felt the need to ask if they could sit under a particular tree? What does this say about our society as a whole? The hanging of a noose should be considered criminal, zero tolerance!!! Did any of you see photos dipicting lynchings of slaves and free African Americans? You can Google it "Images of lynching in America" There was once an exhibit that toured major museums - just from the posts it appears the terms "prank" and "6 on 1" is the focus. In all fairness from the start of this situation all involved individuals should have been disciplined appropriately. From witness accounts this fine upstanding individual was yelling racial slurs before the incident and had been warned to stop. People, this was already a fire and he poured gasoline on it. I don't condone the fight, but these individuals had reported the previous incidents leading up to this to the proper authorities and nothing had been done. Don't you believe this is the reason he and his friends kept taunting the students, nothing had been done!!!! The most haunting photo I ever saw of an African American male hanging from a bridge, his mother was sobbing uncontrollably so because she was putting up such a fuss, they hung her too, she is beside him with the white dress and wedding ring visible on her finger. Read about our history and maybe, just maybe someone will think before they play a harmless prank with a noose or white sheet.

NEW YORK (CNN)-- A horrible chapter in American history is the focus of a New York gallery exhibit that illustrates the cruelty -- and bizarre revelry -- at many lynchings in the United States.
All photos show voiceless victims of hate; men and women stripped, lashed, beaten, burned and hung. Often their only crime was one they could not control -- the color of their skin.
"Many times they would lynch someone by a railroad track so that passing trains would see and pass the word on and also as a form of intimidation to people in surrounding black community," said the curator of the exhibit, James Allen.
Allen spent 15 years collecting the photos.
"We hope people will walk away with the idea that this was a very frequent act of violence," said Allen. "We won't be able to deny it any longer."
The most recent photo was made in McDuffie County, Georgia, in 1960.
Many of the photos are actually postcards that were bought and sold decades ago as souvenirs.
"People wanted souvenirs, souvenirs of the spectacle," explained Andrew Roth, who co-owns the gallery exhibiting the work.
The most recent photo in the exhibit is of a man being lynched in McDuffie County, Georgia, in 1960
"There were thousands upon thousands of people that came to many of these events that bought these photos, not only as souvenirs, but as reminders of history," said Roth.
Sometimes, even more horrific trophies were taken away from lynchings. These trophies included body parts.
"The individual who framed this," pointed out Allen, "has preserved his proud locks of the victim's hair. What drove Americans to do this to their own? Desperate to see, perhaps desperate to understand, people now stand in line to bear witness.
Gallery visitors are seeing a shameful part of America's violent past
"It's so easy for so many people to forget what the history of this country is about," said one woman after viewing the disturbing photographs.
"It's a very ugly sort of history because people felt the need to photograph these heinous moments," said another viewer.
Some felt the need not only to photograph -- but to actively participate, to smile at a camera ... in the presence of death.
"After you get through the shock," said Allen, "what lingers are the images of the perpetrators, and not of the corpses, and that's where the focus needs to be."
The gallery also displays a poster from 1922 on which the NAACP wrote: "To maintain civilization in America, you cannot escape your responsibility." The exhibit is a harsh reminder of America's responsibility for a horrible chapter of racial hatred.

some of you people have been treated a certain way for so long it's like you are brainwashed.it's really sad. i know when i was in high school i was in nuff fights for less important shit than this,but if my friend was jumped by people at a party i would retaliate too. those of you who disagree are liars. i for one am not going to say they were wrong.betcha next time he'll think twice about taunting people without having more of his friends behind him. notice i did not mention race in this. this could be any group of teens. the da is the one that brought the race card into it by not punishing everyone the same

Yeah, I may sound upset, but my grandparents were forced to return their new car because the white americans did not like watching them ride to church on Sunday, but they came by droves to collect my Grandmother's eggs. You see because they had the money to buy a new car, her chickens were the best kept ones in the county. They never picked dirt. But they were not allowed to keep a new car

For you information Robert Bailey sat under that tree every day talking to his friends. He was a Junior when he made the joke asking to sit under the tree, everyone laughed black and white because everyone knows he sat under there. And for him to go on the news and act like he never sat there but the 2 times makes me sick. We have all sat there and watched many people black and white sit under the tree from day to day. Now I understand they call it the "white tree". As far as I know since I was born it was called the "prep tree". But if that's what were doing now I will refer to the benches where the majority of the black students sat the "black bench"

You are a lost cause, I have been waiting to say that. Anyone who camps online as much as you do, does not have much of a life. I just happend upon this site. But you're comments did interest me. However, it appears my last post will not be posted. When you and you're family change to the shades of Brown/Black and walk in our shoes and have the basics yanked from you, e-mail me. As it stands I and there are many others who know of the the glass ceiling. Ask an educated individual and they can explain it in elementary terms. I have a child in a Master's Program and another in college. You are funny, don't you read? If you had you would have seen why noose's are so upsetting. Didn't you see my reference to a web site? They ALL should be punished but in a fair manner. Lets be honest if I were to quote Jeff Foxworthy jokes in a bar full of white people, don't you think the patrons would get offended. I am so glad to have made the sacrifices to ensure my children had proper education despite the poor school system within the inner city. It was tough and yes they will have to face individuals like you, but hopefully they will be far and few in between. Look me up when in a few years, my daughter has her eye on the PhD program at Harvard, After all she already has her bachelors and nearly her masters at a prominent university. Education is the answer when dealing with individuals such as yourself

I don't really care what your children have and don't worry I am being well educated and plan on attending college myself. I would like to know how I am such a horrible person for stating the facts. The reason I get on this site in the mornings and then again at night is to fight for my town and my school to prove to people like you we are not racist. I think that gives me plenty of reason to be on here stating the facts. All I am trying to do is get the truth out and stop all these lies. How is that wrong? I don't want to argue with you and I hate to have to be rude but it's hard not to be when you were to me. I'm only here to show that just because of the actions of a few morons doensn't give people the right to say the whole town is racist. Now if you really really think about and take everything you may have heard out of your mind don't you think it's kind of unfair for people like me?
