Greetings On-Line Family

First off, let me apologize for a problem we recently discovered.  You see for some time now, many of you have been telling us that you have been sending us e-mails without receiving replies.  Our responses to you verbally and via e-mail was "we have not received any e-mail", and indeed we had not.  It seems most of the e-mails you sent when you replied to the weekly e-blast, was not reaching us, instead they have been hitting our "Spam" box.  

On our end, when we glanced at the "Spam" e-mail number (which tells us the amount of Spam e-mails that is located in the box) it was always at a zero amount.  Therefore, we thought there was nothing in the box.  We just didn't think about going into our "Spam" box to double check, as we did last week.  Once we entered the "Spam" box, an enormous amount of e-mails downloaded and of course we discovered many were not Spam.  Since the "Spam" box empties itself, it is clear we missed many of your e-mail, which we apologize for.

So, again, please accept our apology for not replying to your many e-mails.  We assure you that this problem has been resolved, and you are now free to respond to our e-mails as you have done in the past.  In addition, if by chance you find we have not responded to you in an appropriate amount of time, please feel free to e-mail us at the following addresses:   ariousentertainment@earthlink.net or to myself susan@ariousentertainment.us or todd@ariousentertainment.us.

  Exact same contact lenses for less.

 

As you have noticed the subject of our e-mail begins with "Jena 6", and if many of you were unable to tuned into CNN over the past week, you would not be aware of what "Jena 6" is or what it's about.  Actually, the story about this "Jena 6" was just "broken" to the media worldwide last week.  

For some time now we have been aware of this issue, due to us being avid listeners of talk radio; and we were a bit surprised and became concerned about this issue when we found out.  As you can imagine there are lots of discussions on the talk radio programs about it. 

What is "Jena 6"?  Well, in a nutshell "Jana 6" is about 6 black students who attended Jena High School in a small town called Jena in Central Louisiana.  These students were arrested last December after a school fight took place because of mounting racial tension  amid other issues, after a black student sat under a tree in the schoolyard where only white students sit.  The next day three nooses painted in the school colors were hanging from the tree.  As a result of this fight a white student was beaten and suffered a concussion and multiple bruises.  The 6 black students who are between the ages of 15 and 17 were charged with attempted murder and conspiracy, and faced up to 100 years in prison without parole.  Actually, one of the students 17 year old Mychal Bell who was the first to go on trial was convicted of aggravated battery and conspiracy charges and now faces up to 22 years in prison.

Many are asking...why all this over sitting under a tree?  Well, it seems that this issue can be traced back to approximately a year ago (Sept. 2006)  when one of the black students requested permission to sit under a tree in the schoolyard where usually only white students sit.  The very next day three nooses were found hanging from the tree, which to all of these black students clearly meant HATE, that they had done something terribly wrong, and  that they (the white students) wanted to hang the kids for sitting under the tree even though they had gotten permission.  Anyway, as the story goes the 3 white students who had hung the nooses were expelled, but the  school superintendent dismissed the nooses as a prank and overturned the expulsion giving the white students only 3 days suspension instead.  Therefore, the 3 white students served the 3 days suspension and were allowed to return to school.  Some days after the nooses incident, and the overturned expulsion, the black student body of Jena High school staged an impromptu demonstration where they crowded under the tree during lunch hour.  The school responded to the demonstration by calling the Police and the District attorney, and at an assembly that same day the District Attorney Mr. Reed Walters, accompanied by armed policemen addressed the students.  According to a substitute teacher Michelle Rogers (one of the few black teachers at the school), the District Attorney Mr. Reed Walters took a pen out of his pocket and held it in his hand, and told the kids  "See this pen in my hand?  I can end your lives with the stoke of a pen".

As this problem festered several incidents occurred throughout the fall.  In October, a black student was beaten for entering a private all-white party.  In late November someone tried to burn down the high school creating even more tension.  In December, a white student pulled a gun on a group of black students at a gas station claiming self-defense, the black students wrestled the gun away and reported the incident to police, but instead they were arrested and charged with assault and robbery of the gun.  No charges were ever filed against the white student in either incident.   

A couple days later a white student who had racially taunted a black student who was beaten up days before, was allegedly attacked in a school fight and was taken to the hospital and released shortly with a concussion, and he proceeded to attend a school function that same evening.  From this incident these 6 black students were charged with attempted second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder on charges that leave them facing between twenty and one hundred years in jail and their bonds were set at between $70,000 and $138,000.

From my understanding several of the families of these students were unable to come up with the funds to pay their bail and they have been sitting in Jail until their trial.  The first trial was held in late June for one of these students Mr. Mychal Bell, who is 16, and who was a football star at Jena High School; Mychal was found guilty by an all white jury, white judge and white district attorney and is facing the maximum of 100 years in prison.  However, Mychal charges have been reduced upon the jury selection of his case and  the District Atty. Reed Walters reduced the charges to aggravated second-degree battery and conspiracy to commit aggravated second-degree battery, which together carry a maximum of 22 years in prison instead of 100.  Mychal is currently waiting for his sentence which was postponed from late July to September 20th.

Mychal Bell

These six students absolutely need your help, they want to get a fair trial, they were clearly charged unjustly, and their charge was for a major capital crime instead of  a school brawl (which is so wrong).

Currently, many including the families and friends of these students, citizens of this small town "Jena", ministers, The NAACP, The ACLU and many who have recently become aware of this problem have been trying to raise awareness of what is transpiring in "Jena".  Their goal is to get a proper and fair trial for these 6 students.  They are marching and trying to be heard about this unfairness.  Locally, I noticed the Howard University students donated funds at an assembly regarding these Jena 6 which will go towards these young men's bail.  

It is obvious racism is alive and well and taking place right under our noses.  This injustice is appalling!!!!  These 6 young men up until a week ago, no major TV network reported anything about their case, which have clearly been going on for a year.  Imagine in our time, over sitting under a tree (designated for white students), "the powers that be" in this town "Jena" is clearly very racist to charge these kids so severely, throw them in jail, hold trial/s and find one guilty where he and the 5 others are facing a number of years in prison, again for a school brawl.

Recently, this case has really gone public and is getting a lot of attention, due to rallies and people speaking out about the unfairly harsh charges.  The Associated Press reported some days ago that the attempted murder charges has been reduced for most of these young men.  Actually, on Wednesday the Associated Press reported Judge J. P. Mauffray, Jr. threw out Mychal Bell's  conspiracy conviction saying "juveniles could not be charged with conspiracy in adult court", which means Mychal will face at most 15 years in prison instead of 22.  Clearly, things are "looking up" for these young men, now that their terrible story have hit the media, and since many of us have reached out, currently supporting, talking and spreading the word about it.

Below, I have placed a few links that takes you to "You Tube" where several folks have reported/done stories on this important issue.  Check them out and let me know your thoughts.  to help out you can sign the on-line petition being sent around to obtain signatures so that these young men can get a fair trial.  I understand that a major rally has been planned and will take place on the day of sentencing (September 20th), so many around the U.S. are traveling to "Jena" for this rally.   Please do what you can to help!!!!

wiadca.gif (4260 bytes)  Last weekend the New York Labor Day Caribbean Carnival took place, and it was filled with events, parties and was lots of fun for many.  For me it was just fine.  Of course, it was filled with lots and lots of people.  I particularly enjoyed the Guadalupe band/dances with their beautiful costumes, and found  "Carib-The Forgotten Tribe" was very nice with their gold body paint.  (small section that was a part of BOREKEETE U.S.A)

Overall to me the BOREKEETE U.S.A Band was very nice as well as extremely large.  BOREKEETE U.S.A had to have taken the top prize home this year due to all of their beautiful sections (approximately 14 of them).  I liked the "Red Warriors" also, and there DJ was " Sound City" whose sound was pretty good on the road.
