Maybe it’s because I’m from a small town, but I guess I don’t see the issue. It seems we have a few people that want to make more of it than what it is, and many jumping on just for the cause.

If you want to declare crimes of hate as those where it’s one race against another, rather than based on a personality clash, than there are many cases where there are victims on all sides. Since our friend, Al Sharpton, wants to define Jena as an example, you have the case where it was wrong for kids to intimidate others with nooses, and even more wrong when the ones who felt intimidated took their anger out by putting a fellow student in the hospital. In either case, it’s wrong.

Like I said, I live in a small town and in an old house. I can tell you that when you work to clean something this old, there will always be dirt remaining, if you look for it.
