America is still so much behind when it comes to race. This is the 21st century and still racial profilling is still going on. This is a case of Blacks and whites,in which the whites have more say so than the blacks. An evidence of slavery still going on. These Young men should be released and all the charges dropped. None of them have a history of violent or have they been in jail. They are try to make a difference and get an education. Is this too much to ask?? Free Jena six!! President Bush need to step up to this!

This is a good example once again to my children how America has double standards. We have to teach our children to fight with knowledge and African American enpowerment.

You just like many others would be ready to protest if this was 6 white kids beating up a black kid, and they let the white kids go free. This is a case of mob violence. This isn't a case where 2 kids get into a tussle, it is a case where a large group of kids beat up on kid till he was almost dead. They should serve time because what they did was criminal. The white kid should serve time also for pointing and presenting a firearm. Never take the law into your own hands, becuase it will always lead to more violence.

PLEASE BRING OUR BLACK TROOPS HOME.
Why are we pointing the finger at another
country? oh I know. Oil. AND more control of course. The point, we shouldn't be over there when we can't get this country where it should be.
It's HELLO 2007. Jena 6, we're there with you.

So what you are saying, is that black people shouldn't be fighting for this country? Let all the white people fight and die. If you want to bring all the black folk home then go back to the african tribe that sold you to the French to be slaves. This country belongs to the Indians and all of the other races are here illegally. The Indians are the real slaves of today, they were forced to live on land that wouldn't be suited for anyone to survive without outside help. They are still forced to live by their owners laws. The government is the real slave owners and everyone who isn't a Native Indian are just as much to blame so all of you should be apologizing and giving back to who rightfully owns this land.

2007 and the white kids are hanging nooses under "whites only" trees......shame on you white kids for feeling superior.....shame on you white parents for raising such close-minded, unenlightened kids. good luck white parents with your ignorant offspring; perhaps someday they'll escape the small box you all live in now and they'll get a chance to see some other parts of the world which will undoubtedly open their eyes to cultural and racial sensitivities that they are most certainly lacking.

This is a public school, not someone's personal home. Black, white, Asian anyone should be able to sit where ever the like in a public school. If the white or black kids don't like that, then go attend a private school that promotes your dumb races beliefs. America is so far behind on this issue. Also the white kid could not have been almost beaten to deaf. If he attend a function that same night. No one is trying to run everything Jodi, open your eyes. People want to be treated equal.

i'd like a to introduce an alternative to the debate. what does everyone think should have happen if all the kids were ( black)or all (white)? does the punishment fit the crime ? to many people figure ways to seperate instead of unite. is there close-mindedness by both races( heck yea) weve got work to do. no doubt! but this is a statute issue not a race issue. and it never shouyld be

And shame on the blacks for thinking violence will solve this. And as far as the black parents shame on them for not tearing their kids tail up for this as well as the white parents too.

I'm sure your black boyfriend feels the same way.
