Six black dudes that beat the living hell out of a white kid in Jena, LA. A racial firestorm was ignited in the aftermath.
Although U.S. Attorney Donald Washington has stated that there is no evidence of unfair prosecution, protests arose with accusations of racism.
The small town was then decended upon by thousands of self-richeous college kids from all over the country (half of whom didn't know the facts of the case) with such American treasures as Al Sharpton. The media overblew the story and somewhere in all the quixotic "protesting", everyone seemed to forget about the victim...the kid who got his head stomped on.
The Jena 6 became heroes for jumping somebody.
aka: Black Jesus
Charismatic QB who possesses natural leadership abilities and freakish athleticism.
Person 1: Hey did you see Black Jesus gettin all crunk, pumping his teammates up before the game?
Person 2: Yeah, then he went out there and took his team to another victory.
Vince Young deserves his Heisman back.
A word that when used by someone, generally signals their loss in an argument.
A rule of thumb for debate tournaments: The first person who says "hitler" loses.
Person 1: ...and that's why captialism is essential to a nation's freedom.
Person 2: But uh, the nazis used to...uh i mean, hitler was...
Person 3: Sorry bro, you lose for bringing up hitler.
The global conflict between radical Islam and Western democratic countries. Takes the form of intelligence gathering, police action, propaganda, terrorist attacks, diplomacy and military action.
After groups like Al Qaeda declared war on America in the 90s, they followed up with several attacks on US interests abroad and 9/11 at home. This lead to a more aggressive stance by the US and its allies.
While some people like to claim that there's no "war on terror"...there actually is and it is very real.
An act of war committed against the United States. The day the Taliban regime comitted suicide.
9/11 was a blatant act of terrorism committed against civilians who were just going to work to make a living. How quickly people forget.
