    As for somebody finding the will to live because a completely unqualified person was elected to high office and happens to have similar coloration to the suicidal individuals (while sharing almost none of their heritage,) well, that is a pretty big stretch.
    It should be a hopeful time for black people.
    It is a hopeful time for me.

    Really? I don't have that sort of identity with elected officials.

    I can remember all the debates surrounding the Jena 6 we had. It seems hard to believe one of the kids is back in the news again and is back in trouble with the law- or is it?
    His aim sucks.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    And this folks, is what's wrong with the Liberal mindset. Group think and identity politics. Couldn't we just be hopeful for all Americans? Or is that too much to freaking ask?

    For what it's worth, this was the fourth member of the "Jena Six" to have been subsequently arrested or convicted of unrelated assault/battery charges in the 2 years since the incident.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    He attempts suicide because of media attention. So, the medias response is to give him more attention on his failures at committing suicide?
    My 2 month old niece knows more about ethics than the press. Leave the man alone, I am sure there are other Plaxico trees to bark up.

    Because some groups have had to/ and do struggle MORE than other groups.

    You really are gonna sit here and deny that certain groups still face racism in this country? Obama being elected is a change in the right direction and maybe all those good ole' white males in charge got a Big wake up call

    It's sad.
    I keep thinking, you know... the prospect of President Obama, and the prospect- like a glimmer far on the horizon- of an end to systematic racism should've given these young men hope.
    Obama is not going to change the plight of blacks in America. In fact it is going to continue to get worse.

    Because some groups have had to/ and do struggle MORE than other groups.

    Obama enjoys the same priviliges and powers of all the "good ole' white males" to which you refer. Racism is a class issue.

    Reporting the news they think people are interested in, especially sensational news, is what they do. In this case, all you have to do is look at this thread to see they are right about people being interested.
