day of blogging for justice - the Jena 6
1. the whole of
all must go
now the definition that is implicit and not in any dictionary.....
X. ONLY white, males (and females) who meet a certain "importance" as measured by
wealth, influence, and image.
"...liberty and justice for all." - us pledge of allegiance
now i guess the pledge of allegiance makes more sense and explains why the Jena 6 are in the situation that they are in. i do not know where to begin in describing how it makes me feel knowing that a horrible situation is occurring to us CITIZENS (oh excuse me....wrong word....if i remember from katrina, the right word is refugees) in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and no national news station has covered this. it's better to cover mike vick and his fall from grace (kick a black man while he's down) or pari hilton or lindsy lhan or anna nicle smith or britny spears (i spelt both their names wrong on purpose because they aren't as important to me as they are to cnn's front page). other nations find this injustice worth covering, but here, at "home" (i use the term loosely because i cannot feel comfortable calling a place home when i don't feel wanted), it's status quo and non-important. how can you say that race is not an issue anymore when it could not be more obvious. it's right here in your face. why why why???
