I think 6 white boys need to go get each one of the black boys one at a time and return the favor. This was all started because they knew they could get a rise of these white kids by sitting where they always sat. We have all had our little group areas when we were in school. It didn't matter what color it was just the way things are. The smokers had their area, the nerds had their area, the jocks had their area, the girls had their area, and etc. You know what I'm getting at we all defended our hang outs and it wasn't based on race but the fact that at the beginning of each year the different groups claimed their hangouts for the year and you just don't try to take it over without a fight. These white kids didn't resort to violence but they did resort to stupidity and bad taste but not violence.

<quoted text>Your attitude is exactly what I'm talking about, why aren't people standing up for Channon & Christopher and displaying the outrage that all of America should be feeling for them, why hasn't someone organized a march or protest for what happened to them? The monsters that committed those dispicable acts are going to prison for a long time, and may even recieve the death penalty. If you are going to speak about Channon & Christopher, it should be in a way to honor their memory, a scholarship fund, a memorial fund, anything that would not dishonor them in a negative light. As a veteran of the United States Air Force, it is very disheartening to know that you are obvously a closet racist that raised your right hand and swore to protect and fight against the very behavior that you are displaying in this forum. I tell people I am a veteran because I want them to know that no matter your sex, race, religious beliefs, and whatever else, that I stand apost and fight for you becasue I love you and I would hope that they would do the same for me. I find it very hard to believe that you are a veteran speaking in this manner. How long did you serve? If you don't mind me asking?
well, there was a march, in Knoxville, in june. a few people came out to protest. the whole thing was written off by the media as nothing more than a gathering of "white racists." there were actually more counter-protesters than there were protesters. the lack of solidarity in white people is sickening.
i served in a combat oriented mos in the Army for 5 yrs. been overseas twice.

That is not right at all.More violence and fighting will only perpetuate more of the same in turn and the cycle continues and can escalate out of control.

ah but you are wrong biker they did resort to violence the first fight was a black boy was invited to a party which turned out to be all white 12 to be exact and they jumped him at the party, so that makes them just as guilty as the jena 6 ! 12 on 1 or 6 on 1 which is fair? in my book neither!

So black people can resort to violence but if white people do it it's wrong? If 6 white kids beat up a black kid it's an act of racism and they should get the chair?

The White Tree should not have been chopped down. It is not the fault of the White Tree that blacks stood under it or that whites hung ropes from it. The Tree was a symbol. It was in fact a symbol of America's Cultural Past. It should have been heritage listed so that no one could touch the tree. Much as if it were in a Museum.

The dark boys involved knew the menace they would be causing by standing under the tree. So they incited hatred. The white boys retaliated with what they knew would sock it back to 'em.

These issues are only a symptom of what's happening at the School, not necessarily in the Community.

This is not a National Issue requiring further provocation by Black Leaders. It's a chance for them to have another rant about how unfair it all is that black folks, commit crime, get caught and convicted. OJ got off did his colour play a part in that? Let's just face it, these boys who were tried by a court of law were criminals, not black not white. JUST PLAIN EVERYDAY CRIMINALS.

That was a seperate incident and the kid wasn't invited to the party by the ones that hosted it. One person hit the kid in the nose and several others thre bottles at him, but hey all didn't jump him from behind and knock him out and kick him while he was down. The adult was convicted for simple assault. The others should have been charged too in that case but it wasn't as calculated and violent as brutally knocking a kid out and kicking him while he was out cold. The white kid is a seperate incident and yet the treat it like the punishment should be shared by all white people for what one other man did. What the black kids did is called lynching, it's where a mob is the judge, jury and executioner. Thats what they should be charged with.
