Jena, LA Is Messed UP

The more I hear about Jena, LA, the more I am disturbed. While there are many aspects to the story that warrant censure, do you know what started this whole thing?

It appears that several black Jena high school students beat-up someone in response to long-term harrassment from white students. This harrassment started because a black students asked to sit under the “white people only” tree at the local school....A WHITE PEOPLE ONLY TREE?! Aside from the fact this is the 21st frickin’ century and not the 1930’s, how insanely ridiculous is the idea of racially-restricted shade trees?

In summary,
“White People Only” Tree = Mind is thoroughly boggled.
