Suicide → Suicidal Hanging

This young man committed suicide by hanging himself.

Hanging is the suspension of a person by a ligature, usually a cord wrapped around the neck, causing death. Throughout history it has been used as a form of capital punishment. The first record of use is in the Persian Empire approximately 2,500 years ago, and some countries still use it today. It is also a common method of committing suicide.

But moving on from that  . . .

Absolutely, I'd love to take some time and learn
about African/Nubian history. If you give me the
names of some good books or other resources
on the subject, I will certainly track them down. I
love stuff like that. And I wouldn't doubt for a
minute that there are countless historical figures
from those cultures who contributed
indispensable knowledge and wisdom to our
world and it would be great to learn their names.

Re. Pissed off
But reading about the those societies is not going
to give me respect for you. I do not respect
people or not respect people based on their
race's history. Whatever I learn about your race,
it is not going to affect my view of you as a
person. But more than that, you don't need to try
to gain my respect at all. Your response here
gives me all the respect in the world for you, and
I am moved by your genuine introspection. You
handled my reply with great dignity and honor
and I am extremely impressed with the character
you have shown. So few people would have
responded the way you did, and I thank you for
listening to my words and doing me the honor of
replying with such sincerity and depth. Thank
you, my friend.

Re. Pissed off
I cannot blame you for feeling angry toward white
people if you have been treated regularly with
such bigotry. When we have been treated
consistently badly by a particular "type" of
person, meaning race, religion, sex, whatever, it
is easy to begin to think that everyone of that
"type" thinks the same way and is equally
abusive. God knows I've had it happen to me.
But hopefully we get the chance to have far more
good experiences than bad with any given group.
Sometimes it only takes one good person from
that group to help you see that not all are like

Re. Pissed off
I'm glad if I can be that for you. I'm sorry that
you've had such bad experiences with white
people. Really, truly, from the bottom of my heart
I apologize that you've had to go through that.
The fact that anyone would be abusive toward
you and your people, and act as though they are
speaking for ME and MY RACE  makes me
absolutely sick, and mad as hell. Please know
that those few, small, ignorant individuals do
NOT speak for us.

I just feel that ALL of the contributions made by
every society are of equal importance. If this
were made to be the standard that would be a
colossal leap towards eradicating hatred and
racism. B/c of you I will NEVER make another
immature sophomore comment that is indicative
of the actions and statements I wish so ardently to
cease. If I can reach out to you and ask that you
take a few moments to read briefly about these
societies and realize that they produced Benjamin
Franklins, Galileo Galileis, Pythagorass, &
Charles Darwin's all the same then I think that I
can gain some of the respect that I lost and
possibly augment your appreciation and
awareness of what those great societies gave to
OUR world.

I did find one erroneous claim. African/Nubian
history was NOT taught to me by any racist or
extremist. I took the initiative to learn Old
Testament history b/c it involved the great
contributions of an ancient society that was
suppressed and neglected in the curriculum of
ALL of the schools that I attended with the
exception of college. Every race has contributed
something great to our society as a whole
however the contributions of some are made to be
more important than those made by others. Why
did I have to spend hours of personal time
scouring the Internet and sifting through books in
the library to find out what societies that existed 4
millennia contributed to society when it is as easy
as getting of bed to find out what European
societies have contributed.

Everything you say is absolutely correct! I'm
completely and utterly wrong for being
disrespectful and derogatory! I'm on the defense
b/c I feel as though I have to be b/c there is SOoo
much racism & hatred in the world that is mostly
directed at people that resemble myself. I had
the expectation that someone not as nearly as
intelligent as you would respond. You did make
me realize that even in anger I cannot stoop to the
level of the garbage that I disdain and villify.
Thank you for making me realize how foolish my
initial and follow up comments were. I sincerely

Re. Pissed off
You said that you were just telling the truth. In
actuality, you were voicing an opinion and
presenting it as though it were fact. It would
behove you, as an educated person, to learn the
difference. Also, it would appear that you did not
take my advice, as although you assert that your
punctuation is correct, your latest post still
contains numerous mistakes.

And thank you for the education, but I learn with
my head, not my ass. So do most people,

It's very interesting that you used the word
"niggers" and put quotation marks around it, as
though I said it. Of course I didn't use that word,
and in fact, nothing I have said has been racist at
all. It is your own bias that caused you to read
racism into my post when none existed.
