Has anyone heard about the Town of Lena being investigated by the Leake County Chapter of the NAACP for Racial Discrimination? One of my colleagues called me last week and said they were being watched closely because blacks are not being allowed to use the towns'facilities such as the old Lena School and the recently refurbished Lena Gymnasium. Anyone been turned away from these facilities for being black? I've heard the white people are using these but blacks aren't being allowed and they're using law enforcement to intimidate black people from coming around.

This is just another example of political correctness gone amuck. It seems that black folks, which represents 13 of the total U.S. population, rule everything. Since blacks, find Colonel Reb so offensive, maybe we should change the mascott to Colonel Sanders. Since nobody loves fried chicken more than blacks do, how can they object?

They need to be more worried about the black folks coming to the white churches in town...they got their own churches! The gym is the place they need to be at not our churches!

They're not racist or discriminatory. Lena is a good town and some of the officials are good Christian folks. I'm sure anyone could come into that town and not be worried about the color of their skin causing them problems. Just more airheads on here trying to spread lies and crap. You people who type all this mess need to get a life and get a job!
