What do the events in Jena have in common with the incident in Jasper? Absolutely nothing. There was no hate crime in Jena unless it was the attack on Justin Barker. The three responsible for the death of James Byrd should have been executed for murder.

Black on white crime is at its highest ever, yet we never hear about incidents concerning whites who have died at the hands of blacks in torture- murders. The case where a black group, including a black female kidnapped a young white couple is not found anywhere. After torturing the white guy they cut off his penis then set him on fire. The female was raped repeatedly by all of these Satans
then was given a bottle of chemical cleaner to drink. After this they put her body in a drum with a cover on it. The media has smothered this horror story from the beginning. Still think the KKK, Aryans, and white groups who are proud of their race are bad?
