Racially biased justice still infects American courtrooms

Jesse Jackson writes in the Chicago Sun-Times, “They cut down the “white tree” at Jena High School last month — about a year too late. On Thursday, a mass civil rights march will take place in Jena, La., demanding justice for the Jena Six — the six young men unjustly charged with felonies, jailed on prohibitive bonds and facing years in prison. As we march for the Jena Six, we will protest a racially biased U.S. criminal justice system that is creating explosive conditions across this country.”
