Jena 6 at the wikipedia

I bet you'd never imagine it, but the article on the Jena 6 at the wikipedia has been a source of conflict! What a surprise!

Okay, but this will blow your mind. There is a debate about weather or not it's OK to use this very biased and dismissive timeline of the events in Jena as a source for the wikipedia article.

After a user (Qworty) working hard to resolve this question complains about "racist editors" another user responds like this:

Not so fast, Qworty. An overwhelming majority of the edits, just glancing back through the history pages last few days, have been done by you, me, and Ophois. And you referred to a plural, "racists", meaning more than one, who want to make sure pro-white positions are inserted in the article. Please be more careful in what you write. If I pick up even an implication that I am a racist, or anything else I would resent, I will seek out administrators and work to have you banned. Edit as you like, but watch your fingers when it comes to implications about fellow editors. That's no attack; that is fair warning.--Wehwalt

That's right folks! Call me racist and I'll have you banned! (Not that this cat has the power to ban anyone!)

I could not make this stuff up.

Okay, but sensationalism aside, if any of you have a little time the wiki could use some TLC from people who know this issue.

i dont think they should wiki this issue until it is resolved. i don't even want to look at that page because i'll get heated.
