Race, Rallies, and the Jena 6
The images from Jena, La. today is striking... masses of people unloading from buses to protest the charges against the "Jena Six." It's way too early to guess at how many people are there, but for a tiny town of about 3,000 people, it's not hard to overload the area. The racially charged story involves fights between black students and white students, criminal charges, and nooses hung from a tree. Today, we'll hear from one of the many bloggers who helped push this story into the mainstream. Shawn Williams is in Jena for the really. We'll also talk about the symbolism of the noose, and how it can mean such different things to different people.
