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.

Re. Hangin'
I would also like to bring to attention your
comment, a well as other's comments on here,
about this man and other suicide victims being
"weak". This statement reveals extreme
ignorance. People commit suicide for many,
many reasons. A large number of suicides are
caused by depression, bi-polar disorder, post-
traumatic stress disorder due to rape, war, or
other traumatic event, side effects from
medications that cause suicidal drive in otherwise
non-suicidal people, chronic incurable physical
pain, finding out one has a terminal or
degenerative disease and wishing to die with
dignity, and intense bullying and harassment from
which people can not seem to find relief -- Yes,
including harassment and bullying in the form of

Re. Hangin'
People do not commit suicide out of weakness,
they commit suicide out of unbearable suffering.
Nobody wants to die. But there are times that
living becomes too much to bear. The people
who judge others so harshly for choosing to end
their suffering may someday find themselves
facing a choice regarding ending their own lives.
Life is a hell of a thing to happen to a person.

Re. Pissed off
Hi again, I apologize for taking so long to write

I would like to clear one thing up quickly. When I
said that was racist propaganda, what I was
referring to wasn't your historical references. It
was your use of historical facts to lead up to a
claim that white people are weak and inferior to
black people with which I found opposition.

Re. Pissed off
Every racist group in history has used historical
dates and figures to build a claim of being the
First, the True, the Superior Race, and make
others out to be the weak, the meek, the
intruders, and generally inferior -- and therefore
subhuman. By taking away somebody's
humanity, they can begin to justify and promote
unspeakable acts of violence and hatred toward
their victims. They all begin with the tactic of
elevating their own race above others and
inflaming their followers' sense of entitlement.
And that is called propaganda.

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.
