The past week was a busy one in Jena. Thursday’s Day of Action drew thousands of supporters for the six young men who have been subjected to Jim Crow style injustice. While charges against Mychal Bell of aggravated second-degree battery have been thrown out, the young man remains in jail, where he has been since December of last year. Additionally, the families of the Jena 6 have received a series of threats, including a white supremacist website that has been set up and purportedly reveals the addresses of these families. Two other “noose” incidents, in Louisiana and in North Carolina, are continuing to fuel interracial antagonism and violence. Suddenly it’s feeling like the 1950s all over again.
