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.
