As you've probably seen, protests are taking place in Jena, Louisiana, over the prosecution of six black teens, and the fact that an all-white jury convicted them.

I'm hoping to interview Townhall Contributing Editor -- and former Ohio Secretary of State -- Ken Blackwell -- today, to discuss. 

Primarily, I'm interested in finding out if this is a legitimate issue, or merely another excuse for Jesse Jackson / Al Sharpton to get publicity.  In short, is this Selma, or is this Tawana Brawley?

Of course, I also hope to ask him about Jesse Jackson's comments about Obama ...
