    Sounds cool to me. I usually go out at about 1pm, then sit on the stairs across the street from the stock exchange.

    Black skirt, black bodice-styled tank, black heels, black denim jacket

    (red earrings, green bracelet)

    Even Freedom has a black top on today at Pre-School.

    I didn't see a lot of folx in black during my commute (just 3) but I saw 4 folx outside the gig and about 4 more walking down the hall.

    my best friend called me this morning during her commute with the same observation. She was on a crowded bus full of black folx on their way downtown and she was the only one in black. She chalked it up to not wanting to judge peoples support by their appearance. Ya don't know if these folx gave money or what . . .

    heard a comment on the Tom Joyner show this morning reminding us to be mindful of how we choose our battles - how we expend our energy. Wasting to energy and indignation on issues like Imus and the seinfeld guy (forgot his name) can cause burnout and the 'cry wolf' syndome.

    as is being shown this morning in Jena, Louisiana, we have to stay ready and focussed for battle - because the war is not won

    and there are alot of people who didnt know as well.
    I have seen just as many in black as I have not in black. AND We DONT know what they have or haven't done regarding the J6. BUT ya gotta admit... if feels good to be able to IDENTIFY solidarity.

    the dressing in black from head to toe, is sublimely delicious T'day.

    I had a sister (not dressed in black) say Nice outfit K. Thanks, its my Jena6 Design. and she said Oh shyt I thought that was tomorrow.

    She said Imma wear my black tomorrow!

    BOWIE DONATES $10,000 TO JENA SIX

    British rocker David Bowie has pledged his support to a group of six teenagers facing murder charges in Louisiana by donating $10,000 (GBP5,000). Bowie's donation will help lawyers defend the black teenagers who have been charged over an attack on a white schoolmate in Jena. He says, "There is clearly a separate and unequal judicial process going on in the town of Jena. "A donation to the Jena Six Legal Defense Fund is my small gesture indicating my belief that a wrongful charge and sentence should be prevented." Four members of the group face aggravated second-degree battery and conspiracy charges resulting from an attack on the student in Jena, Louisiana. Two of the teenagers have been charged with attempted murder.

    Sorry folks im not wearing black,but im speaking about it to coworkers who may not know.Every city in the usa should have had a protest,although i dont think the turnout in Utah would have been that high.

    If we could use this "togetherness" when the camera isn't on to understand the power of unity within our neighborhoods.

    What if the positivity of feeling empowered by your OWN actions could be converted into WEALTH SEEKING to accompany the search for justice.
