How about Jena?

http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/09/…na6/index.html
"If I were a candidate, I'd be all over Jena," the prominent civil rights activist said Tuesday in Columbia, South Carolina, the The State newspaper reports. "Jena is a defining moment, just like Selma was a defining moment."
Yeah, Selma was a nice peaceful event, eh?
Jackson is slated to be on hand for a march in Jena this Thursday. The Rev. Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III, and hip-hop artist Mos Def are also expected to be on hand.
Peaceful marches? Yeah, the tea party marches were supposed to be peaceful too. You bring that many people together, you're inviting the loons as well.

How'd it turn out?
In the background, groups shouted "Black power" and "No justice, no peace."
Doesn't exactly sound peaceful, does it? Who whipped up this toxic environment? Must have been Dubya.

But let's just get thru this, right? Rational thought, and all.

Sharpton called Jena the beginning of the 21st century civil rights movement.

"There's a Jena in every state," Jackson told the crowd in Jena on Thursday morning.
Where's the democratic leadership calling for calm and diffusing the big nasty toxic environment? *crickets still chirping*

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
