Wishing it was 1965 all over again?

Sorry, isn't. The punishments in this deplorable Jena 6 case were not fair to the deeds, yes (clearly, the white students involved deserved assault charges). Was there racism involved in the justice? Perhaps....but to pretend this is 1965 all over again? Why perpetuate this victim status and feed human scum suckers like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Are we regressing out of a need to struggle for the sake of it?

As she trudged up a hill to a rally at a park, 63-year-old Elizabeth Redding of Willinboro, N.J., remembered marching at Selma, Ala., when she was in her 20s.

"I am a great-grandmother now. I'm doing this for my great-grandchildren," she said.
