    Jena’s Troubles – Part 1

    The Political Cesspool

    When I addressed the Political Cesspool audience last Friday, I made the point that the events in Jena were caused by a single unnamed Black student who simply couldn’t abide White students gathering together peacefully among their own under a tree. I blamed Jena’s current troubles on one Black student who was unable to allow a peaceful environment to continue, a Black student who perhaps had visions of his or her very own Rosa Parks moment or Woolworths lunch counter crisis. I was wrong in saying what I said, because an article emailed to me by James Edwards mentions no Black student taking up a position under the Jena High School Peace Tree. And while I was mistaken about that aspect of Jena’s troubles, the reality of what happened is far worse than any scenario that might have developed had I been correct.

    A Black student did, in fact, request permission to sit under the Peace Tree – but he made his request as a good-natured joke to lighten up a boys-only school meeting in which school administrators explained the policies that would govern the upcoming year. The request had the desired effect, and everyone laughed and left the meeting in the best of spirits and good-will. The next morning, the first students to arrive saw the nooses and informed the school staff, who immediately removed them. The boys who placed the nooses were discovered and were subjected to discipline.

    The culprits explained that they had placed the nooses, painted with the school’s colors, on the tree as a prank, imitating something they had seen on television. (By the way, don’t tell me television is harmless entertainment.) The boys were interviewed by school officials, the local police, a Black United States Attorney, and even the FBI. None of the interviewers found a racial component in the boys’ action. Had the interviews been conducted only by local authorities, the conclusion of “no racism” might be attributed to less than honorable motives. But, when a United States Attorney and the Federal Bureau of Investigation find no racial element, that’s powerful. For those entities are specialists in matters of racism. They exist in the South almost exclusively to ferret out White racists real and imagined and prosecute the slightest particle of White racism. They work hand-in-hand with the Southern Poverty Law Center. If those boys had intended for those nooses to be a racist statement, the U.S. Attorneys Office and the FBI would have found it and trumpeted it throughout the land. But they found none. It just wasn’t there.

    But there are always race-baiters who will see racism everywhere, especially where it doesn’t exist. It’s easy to capitalize on accusations of non-existent racism, because something that doesn’t exist can’t defend itself from false accusations. The accusers can say anything they want, and the accused will say nothing in return, because it doesn’t exist. A false accusation of racism is like shadow-boxing, an exercise in showing-off. Anyone can claim to win a shadow-boxing match, because their non-existent opponent never hits back. And this is precisely what has happened in Jena. Even though no racism was found by the people who are specifically and thoroughly trained in and tasked with finding the smallest particle of racism, a gang of Black race-baiters could not stand the possibility of Jena remaining peaceful. They held meetings to complain about the nooses and to wail that the students who placed them were not expelled. The demagogues incited enough animosity in enough of Jena’s Black population that two fights broke out over two days, each one involving some the Black students who have come to be known as the “Jena 6,” a moniker chosen to hearken back to the “Little Rock 9.” When the school reopened after a fire, the infamous attack on White student Justin Barker occurred, leading to the arrests of the Black students now at the center of Jena’s troubles.

    This brings us to this past Sept. 20, when a mob of Black racists, miscreants, race-hustlers, shake-down racketeers, thugs, extortionists, race-baiters, and demagogues invaded Jena, La. like a marauding pack of jackals, incited, organized, and led by the usual suspects of Al $harpton, Je$$e Jack$on, and the NAACP. Their demand was “free the Jena 6,” although it’s difficult to figure out exactly what they want. Some of the attendees did demand that the accused be freed, while other demanded lesser charges against the accused, and still others wanted the charges dropped because there is no way to know that the accused were even involved in the attack on Justin Barker. All three of these demands are ridiculous. All but one the accused were free on bail and out of jail when the march took place. The charges against them had already been reduced and some charges had been dropped well-before Sept. 20, and Mychal Bell’s conviction had already been over-turned. Besides all this, if the protestors truly believed that the wrong people had been accused, then they should have implored the real attackers to come forward. If $harpton, Jack$on, and the NAACP have any doubt that the “Jena 6” are innocent, then they should use their influence to encourage those who beat the daylights out of Justin Barker to do the right thing, step up, ‘fess up, free their brothers from the cloud of suspicion, and take their punishment like real men. That would be the honorable thing for $harpton and Jack$on to do – which is why it will never happen.

    Participants in the Jena protest of Sept. 20 gave a variety of reasons for their presence, but most of the reasons were based on nostalgic yearnings for the “glory days” of the “Civil Rights Era” of the 1960’s. In fact, one headline read, “La. protests hark back to ’50s, ’60s”. Al $harpton said the event was the beginning of the 21st century’s civil rights movement, saying, “Our fathers in the 1960’s had to penetrate the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, we have to do the same thing.” Martin Luther King III said the event was reminded him of earlier civil rights struggles. Elizabeth Redding, 63, of Willinboro, N.J., said she marched at Selma when she was in her 20s. “This is worse, because we didn’t get the job done.” Another woman said, “It was a good chance to be part of something historic since I wasn’t around for the civil rights movement. This is kind of the 21st-century version of it.”

    Here in Memphis, the Marxist newspaper published a commentary by the city’s preeminent cultural Marxist, Wendi Thomas. She wrote

    “And so Jena joins and ignoble list of locations trapped in amber by a single event.

    Birmingham and the 1963 church bombing deaths of four black girls by the Ku Klux Klan. Money, Miss., and Emmett Till, a black boy murdered by white men in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman.

    Jasper, Texas, and James Byrd, a black man dragged to death behind a truck by three white men in 1998.

    And of course, Memphis and Martin Luther King Jr., shot to death in 1968 by James Earl Ray, a white man who died in prison.”

    All of these reasons and assessment are predicated upon the premise that the nooses were hung from the Jena High School Peace Tree as a threatening gesture by White students against Black students. But as I’ve pointed out, the premise is, notoriously, untrue. Highly trained, experienced, professional racism investigators found none, and one of those investigators was Black.

    So, as usual, Ms. Thomas couldn’t be more incorrect. Jena now joins an infamous list of places where a bunch of belligerent racist Black race-baiting liars and ne’er-do-wells saw an opportunity to foment hatred, bitterness, acrimony, and violence based on false accusations of racism against White people.

    Jena will now take its place with Greenville, South Carolina, where in 2000 Bob Jones University was falsely accused of racism because it would not allow interracial dating. The race-baiting industry pounced upon the school’s policy as proof positive of White supremacism. The fact is, the policy was established in the 1950’s, when an Asian family threatened to sue the university because their son had planned to marry a White woman. The university implemented the policy to protect itself from lawsuits, in this case from an Asian family that didn’t like White women.

    Jena will now take its place with Wappingers Falls, New York, where in 1987 a 15 year-old Black girl named Tawana Brawley falsely accused a group of White men of kidnapping and raping her over a span of several days. Al $harpton took on Brawley’s case and quickly turned it into a media circus. It turned out that Brawley had invented the story to avoid being punished for staying out past her curfew. But the investigation cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and took an awful toll on the White people of New York and the rest of the country. $harpton was fined over $300,000 for defamation of character. Tawana Brawley and her mother left New York with $300,000 that had been contributed to her by deluded well-wishers. New York still has an arrest warrant for both of them for failure to answer a subpoena. To this day $harpton refuses to acknowledge any wrong-doing on his part in the fiasco.

    Jena will now take its place with Durham, North Carolina, where in 2006 a Black woman named Crystal Gail magnum falsely accused three White members of the Duke University lacrosse team of kidnapping and raping her. Je$$e Jack$on and the NAACP took on the case, and in true $harpton style, turned it into a media circus. America watched the case fall to pieces like the rotted and infected skin of a leper, as Durham District Attorney Michael Nifong withheld evidence that clearly exonerated the accused White men and Crystal Gail Magnum changed her story multiple times. With Crystal Gail Magnum proven a liar, Je$$e Jack$on was soon nowhere to be found, and the NAACP suddenly found virtue in silence. That is, until earlier this year, when the NAACP showed up to defend the Knoxville 6 who confessed to kidnapping, raping, torturing, and murdering Channon Christian and Chris Newsome. The NAACP still maintains that Knoxville 6 had no racial motives when they carried out the Knoxville Horror.

    “What we need is federal intervention to protect people from Southern injustice,” Al $harpton said. I would say he is as incorrect as is Wendi Thomas. But the truth is Al $harpton is just a liar. The truth is we need federal intervention to protect White people from “$harpton – Jack$on justice,” false accusations of racism by the likes of Tawana Brawley, Crystal Gail Magnum, Michael Nifong, the NAACP, Al $harpton, and Je$$e Jack$on. Of the people on rogues gallery I just listed, only Michael Nifong, a White man, has been held to account and punished for his false accusations of racism against White people. That in itself is an injustice. How is it that all those Black people can make false accusations against White people and get away with it? The answer is obvious – there are two systems of justice in America, and it favors Blacks.
