Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
For an objective view of the demonstrators that descended on Jena, Louisiana, let’s use a scientific application to reach a fair and accurate comparative analysis. We will use Newton’s Third Law of Motion: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Ensuing is a hypothetically equal and opposite reaction, based on numerical and intrinsic facts mirroring the events of Jena, Louisiana by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson et al.
An estimated 20,000 protesters swarmed the streets of Jena, Louisiana on Sept. 20, 2007 in protest of 6 black teens, either convicted or indicted, for the violent and brutal racially motivated beating of Justin Barker, a white classmate of the 6. To gain a balanced perspective, contrast it with the Duke rape case in the first few days before the case fell apart. Four white Duke lacrosse players were charged with raping a black female stripper from Durham North Carolina who was hired to entertain at their party.
Three months prior to the beating, there were hangman’s nooses hung from a tree that the white students congregated under. The nooses were hung after blacks students started congregated under the same tree. With a three month span between the nooses and the beating, it would make the two events mutually exclusive. To directly link the two events, as the protesters are attempting to do, through causal analysis, would be a miscarriage of logic.
