Tomorrow is the start of the Jena 6 trial. There is a uniform exemption at Booker T. tomorrow so the students and faculty can wear black in a show of support.
I don't approve of young men ganging up and beating somebody unconscious, even if they have reasonable justification due to provocation. But the Jena case is proof positive that Jim Crow double standards still exist.
Wikipedia has some interesting info about William Zantzinger and Hattie Carroll.
