    Jena 6 case wrapped up with plea bargain - Yahoo! News

    JENA, La. – Five members of the Jena Six have pleaded no contest to misdemeanor simple battery and were sentenced to seven days probation and fined $500 plus court costs.

    It was a far less severe end to their cases than seemed possible when the six students were initially charged with attempted murder in a 2006 attack on Justin Barker. They became known as the "Jena Six," after the central Louisiana town where the beating happened.

    That's America today:

    If you're black, you've got license to stomp a white kid nearly to death and then make it look like YOU are the victim because the prosecutor charged you.

    If you're white... you're a sitting duck for a severe beating, and if you complain, YOU are the racist.

    And people wonder how I turned into such an evil "racist"!

    I read the article and I saw no mention of racism nor any racism on the part of the sentences. Did I miss something?

    I'm aware of the event and the circumstances surrounding it, but the OP said to read the article for what I thought was the racism he was referring to.

    Pointless thread, why these trolls create such pointless threads the Bass doesn't know.
