I was just reading some articles on Truthout while eating lunch and I just had to post a link to one of them concerning a small town in Louisiana and the flagrant racism there:
Injustice in Jena as Nooses Hang from the "White Tree"
While this article is highly depressing, I think it's really important that people know that this sort of thing is going on all the time around this country. On the one hand you have young African American star football players going to prison for 22 years because they punched a white kid and got into a fight...meanwhile, Scooter Libby...who lied under oath to cover up serious crimes gets a reprieve from Bush so that he doesn't have to do jail time...and Bush still might pardon him 100%. It makes me sick.
In any case, read the article or at least skim through it.
