Dr. Phil interviews parents of beaten boy of Jena 6 (with Al Sharpton) today & Monday!
The Jena 6

http://drphil.com/shows/show/940 /

You've heard the news and read the headlines. Now, 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 sound off. Was it a hate crime or just a prank? A matter of black and white, or simply right and wrong? Were the Jena 6's civil rights violated during the trial?

Unequal Justice?

Opinions across the country diverged when five of the six African-Americans in the Jena 6 case were initially charged with second degree attempted murder. Now their families, and the parents of the white teen who was attacked, sound off.

Video - "We are on a racial battleground right now."


A Town Divided

The parents of Justin Barker, the white teen who was attacked, speak exclusively to Dr. Phil,
and also face-off with Mychal Bell's supporters.

Video - "If he wasnt guilty, he would be out."


An Intense Debate



Reverend Al Sharpton is a man some people regard as a courageous champion of civil rights in America.
Others, like Jena Junior High School teacher's aide Bobbie Cornett, say he's a racist bully who is
actually creating more problems in Jena with his outlandish statements.

Video - "Our town wasnt racially divided before this happened."


Setting the Record Straight



The Barkers say that Richard Barrett tricked them when he entered their home under false pretenses.
He claimed to support their son, but he was really a white supremacist who used the family and posted
pictures he took with them on a skinhead Web site.

Video - "I was the only one there voicing support for Justin and his folks."


Standing United



Dr. Phil speaks with the Barkers about what may or may not have happened prior to the violence.
Then, he meets with Bishop T.D. Jakes, who has donated $6,000 toward the legal defense fund for
the Jena 6. What does Bishop Jakes think needs to happen to heal the community?


Video - Are the appropriate people being held accountable?

Tune in Monday as the dialogue continues!



----------

I watched this today and it was quite heated and totally unbelievable what the parents and
the school admins were saying, not to mention that moron, Richard Barrett, white supremest!

1. Regarding "Doctor Phil"
I didn't know who this media creation, "Doctor Phil," was until just recently when I saw a bus billboard with his face plastered on it.

I did a double take, thinking it was Jeffrey Tambor!

HEY NOW!

2. I first thought he was in a new sitcom about a doctor.
I'd sooner have Tambor interview me. :D

3. What the participants had to say was the show!

'Dr. Phil' just mediated and asked a few questions to get the ball rolling.
