This is really bad. 

I'm not surprised things are dying down. Ain't but so many times someone can get gassed and walk around in a damn circle. The walking (no standing) was done to intentionally tire them out. 

I know people say they don't want celebrity involvement, but I think people are really underestimating the influence rap/hip hop has on the black youth. This is why I am disgusted by the silence from black celebs. 90% of your songs are about your life on the "street" or about the money you make, yet you can't support the same people...YOUR "people" that have kept you relevant? Even Obama knew hip hop influenced black youth. Remember when rappers started encouraging people to vote? It's not a coincidence that voter turn out was higher in 2012 than it is now in that city. These underrepresented and disenfranchised blacks clearly DO SUPPORT one another or those black faces that say they are 'for them'. It is elitist black people that don't reciprocate. 

Same with radio stations. When Jena 6 happened, we received a lot of information, organization, etc from radio stations, even to my knowledge, BET started covering the events going on. It made a HUGE difference. More people knew what was going on, the people in that city had a voice that wasn't filtered by CNN.

This system was made to protect the likes of him. The questions is what steps should be taken when the expected outcome arrives.


I mean if those crazy azz teabaggers can get something going anyone can.

They are saying that grand jury could take weeks maybe months. They know exactly what they are doing and want people to tire and give up.

something interesting that they are discussing on LHCF is the fact that many blacks showed out to vote for Obama without a plan nor demands. We were more interested in getting him in there than actually getting anything out of it, so we shouldnt be surprised that he's not doing much for the BC.

Also there are some stating the sway of politicians for gay rights and stuff. A decade ago politicians would never push for gay marriage. Its because many gays put pressure on there local government first and worked their way up and never stopped the pressure. They didnt do it every 4 years they worked constantly. To the point that politicians realized "hmmm, these gays and pro-gay marriage people are all going to vote for me if I do XYZ for them. Then i'll definitely have this election in the bag"
 


There are 44 million African Americans in this country, but in 2012, to help Obama win, another 2 million AA registered to vote, so a total of 16 million blacks voted. If more blacks continue to vote and show support to whomever they chose but also make demands, politicians will start paying attention to us.
Latinos are voting and pushing their agenda, even though their illegal immigrant's relatives broke laws, and the politicians are listening to them.

It's a nightmare. Furthermore, with a grand jury, the prosecutor gets to chose what evidence he presents. They're already setting us up for failure.
