Anyone got an article about that lynching? Infuriating
I know there are still many race issues between people in America, but I’m so thankful for how far we have come. Stuff like this is just insanity to even think about.
> Let a new earth rise. Let another world be born. Let a bloody peace be written in the sky. Let a second generation full of courage issue forth; let a people loving freedom come to growth. Let a beauty full of healing and a strength of final clenching be the pulsing in our spirits and our blood. Let the martial songs be written, let the dirges disappear. Let a race of men now rise and take control.
Margaret Walker, For My People, 1942
Its sad that this many Americans still don’t see the blindfold over their eyes. The moment that the electoral college looked at the popular vote, and disregarded it and took someone else into office, was the moment it was revealed how fake our voting system is. But y’all keep looking the other way.
Totally unrelated but that is some amazing penmanship. Some real heart and soul went into that sign. Not just some cardboard and a sharpie.
Sadly the last lynching in my state was in my home town after ww2. Pretty sure he was a vet too.

This was posted on another sub I’m on and they date it to 1947.
Anyone got any more info on the shot / background?
Imagine fighting and dying for a country that hates you and sees you as less than a dog.
It’s amazing that was less than 100 years ago and people are like "fuck voting"
