The following letters were submitted by sixth graders at the Secondary School for Law in Brooklyn, NY in response to the IndyKids cover story (Issue #11) on the case of the Jena Six students in Louisiana.
I think it was unfair that the Jena Six were charged with murder and may face a lifetime in prison while the whites only spent a couple of days in detention. My opinion is that African Americans should be treated more fairly. I also think all types of races should come together and fight for the Jena Six. –JADA
I can’t stand the racism in Jena, Louisiana. I think that the black people should be treated the same way as white people because white people wouldn’t like it if they were being treated unfairly. –DAISY
I can’t believe all of the racism that is going on in the world. I believe if somebody does something it should
not be based on their color but on what they did. –JAHNASIA
I think everyone should protest racism and nonsense wherever it appears. –ABNER

It’s not that I want to copy your web-site, but I really like the style and design. Could you tell me which style are you using? Or was it tailor made?
Have you thought about including some social bookmarking buttons to these blog posts. At least for facebook.
This is the right website for anybody who would like to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that has been written about for decades. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!
There’s definately a great deal to know about this subject. I like all the points you have made.
