If you haven't heard of the Duke rape case by now, you have been in a coma. As this case unfolded, we all watched the entire case unravel because of one immutable truth: It wasn't true.
The fact is, it was manufactured by racist elements as some sort of justifiable payback for the years of white oppression of blacks. Fueled by an irresponsible media, we watched innocent kids being raked over the coals of injustice, behind a wall of accusations that were unfounded and ultimately proven to be false.
Today, we may be seeing another case starting to unravel.
By now, most of you have no doubt heard of the horrible injustices being attached to some young kids in Jena, Louisiana. The media has once again whipped the impetuous masses into a frenzy over what has been claimed to be social injustice of the highest order, using race as bait and advancing unproven theories, as the hook.
Last month, I wrote a piece that linked to the argument of the prosecutor in this case. (If you haven't read it, I recommend reading it. And if you have, maybe you will want to read it again to refresh your memory.)
Keeping all of this in mind, you may now want to read this piece written by a local journalist that lives in Jena. It lists the many myths that exist in this case and refutes them, one by one. These are things that have been brought to us all, by the same irresponsible media as the one in the Duke case.
Note-When you are done with that article, take a look at another one that you may have missed along the way. You can add it to your list entitled, Hmmm, as well.
