This video is a clip from the excellent series on "The History Channel" entitled "American The Story Of Us".
Just as "Jena 6" was their reenactment of "The Scottsboro Boys", regardless of the gross differences they too see today's stance against the "racist" legislation in Arizona as them being on the "right side of history" in the modern day "Fugitive Slave Law". In the past a Black man was snatched up and sent back into Slavery - his free status left up to the whim of the "Slave Catcher". Today asking someone for identification and proof of citizenship is akin to this past injustice. In truth it merely shows that despite the change in factual terms - their rituals remain the same.
Despite their claims that "Arizona is the new Selma Alabama" or "Jim Crow is now in Arizona" the historical facts are not as important as the imagery. Their goal is to render a certain revolutionary spirit within the Black community. They hope to give new life to the "permanent struggle" from which their stage presence is most accentuated.
Sadly the following video will not be shown as they exploit the notion that it is in the "Black best interests" to stand against "racial profiling" that the Hispanics MIGHT suffer:
In the prison system your RACE becomes your gang.
