Jena Six -- Mellencamp Video

I saw cotton and I saw black
Tall white mansions and little shacks
Southern man when will you pay them back
I heard screamin' and bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?

"Southern Man" by Neil Young, singer/song writer

Attempting to make up for my lack of blogging regarding the Jena Six Protest with this new video (released yesterday) by John Mellencamp. I did and do feel bad that I missed supporting the protest from my little piece of cyberspace.

Dusty, great to see you back again. Yes, unfortunately there is far too much still left or that never left.
