You've heard the news and read the headlines. Today on Dr. Phil, the families of the six black teens arrested and charged with the assault of a white teen in Jena, Louisiana last December face off. Was it a hate crime or prank? A matter of black and white, or simply right and wrong? Were the Jena Six's civil rights violated during the trials? The Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have said the arrests and subsequent charges were racially motivated. Now it's Dr. Phil's turn. Share your thoughts, join the discussion.

Late

 

 

I know im extremely late joinging this discussion BUT i had to add his! I am from Ireland and the show was only aired here yesterday! It is most definitely a thing of race!! We had a situation in Ireland a couple of years ago were 4 guys jumped on one guy outside a nightclub! He died from serious head injuries and unlike this case the boys were white and they got a slap on the wrist! 3 got off scott free and 1 got a suspended jail sentence to finish his education.
