Judge Denies Request to Free Jena Teen

According to The Associated Press, "A judge on Friday denied a request to release a teenager whose arrest in the beating of a white classmate sparked this week's civil rights protest in Louisiana. Mychal Bell's request to be freed while an appeal is being reviewed was rejected at a juvenile court hearing, effectively denying him any chance at immediate bail."

White Supremacist Backlash Builds Over Jena Case

Howard Witt reports for The Chicago Tribune: "Rev. Jesse Jackson told the Tribune that he had grown so concerned about white extremists' threats against the Jena 6 families and perceived injustices in the town that he called the White House over the weekend to ask for immediate federal intervention. Jackson said the acting head of the US Justice Department's civil rights division phoned him Monday to say that the agency had begun investigating the Jena situation."

The Jena Six and US History

In an Opinion piece for Truthout, Paul Ortiz writes: "in Jena, as throughout the rest of the US, we are supposed to believe that 'race is no longer an issue' and that justice is colorblind. California fits the pattern perfectly. Out here, Martin Luther King Jr. commemorations have become exercises in remembering how bad racism used to be [in the South] but thank God almighty we are free at last! I am really, really glad that tens of thousands of demonstrators who descended on Jena on behalf of the six young black men ignored what has embarrassingly become the 'common sense' position on race relations in this nation."
