You probably got a few emails to wear black today in support of the Jena 6 (we did and are)… and here are a few links to events around the country that went on today showing support… The Mychael Bell case (the only 1 of the 6 who is still in jail) is going back in front of a judge in the next few days… we’ll keep you posted. Also – CNN is doing an ACTUAL SHOW about the whole case tonight – 8pm EST. Be sure to tune in. The developments and coverage from when we first posted about this issue in July to now is a true testiment to the fact that we all do have the power to change the world. Stay hopeful!

    I aint even gon’ lie yo… the first time i heard about the Jena 6 was here on FroLab back in July! At the time i thought i was f@cked up and also, that it was something SO wrong, that it would get dealt with, justified, and swept under the rug before it got to this point! But HELL NAW??!!! Muthaf@ckas is tryn’a make a monumental mark in history of it… and i aint talkin bout the black community… i’m talkin’ bout the government/pale horse community! Niggas is holdin’ their grounds in the courts like shit is 1945! F@ck all dat… niggas aint slaves no’ mo!!!
