Murder → Lynching in the United States

Lynching in the United States refers, primarily, to the practice in the 19th and 20th centuries of the humiliation and killing of people by mobs acting outside the law. These murders, most of them unpunished, often took the form of hanging and burning. To demonstrate a ritual of power, mobs sometimes tortured the victim. After the American Civil War, lynching was a method of terrorism used to intimidate freed blacks who were voting and assuming political power.

Thing is... I don't think black people stop and look at pictures like this often enough. If they did, they'd realize how much of a struggle our great-grands had less than a hundred years ago.

No one appreciates this like I do. White people laugh about it and shrug, shifting the blame... almost eager to erase those past wounds and black people... my people, they are guilty of proving slave-owners thoroughly right. The only way to move ahead is to never forget. Those who don't learn from their mistakes are doomed to repeat them.

The woman is from a different picture. Somebody used a digital imaging program like photoshop. Check out the shadow by her feet. The dress is not of that era.
And if you made a dumb coment like "that's why black people hate whites", You really hate whites just because you're as racist as the guys who hung this fella.
