Quote of the week

From Sojourners, of course:

We want to emphasize that the hanging of a noose from a tree is not a prank, it is a hate crime.

- Rev. Ernest Johnson, president of the Louisiana National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, commenting on the town of Jena where six black youth have been indicted on felony charges, including attempted murder, for a fight that took place after white students hung nooses from a tree at their high school.
