How'd that trial work out for you?<quoted text>
yeah, I'm sure the members of the KKK that lynched blacks for years were all liberals.
tell me how many lynch mobs were comprised of liberals?
we wanted him tried, that's all.
BTW if you are going to invoke "lynching", you should become familiar with the facts. While its true lynching is a heinous crime (and all mob participants should be massacred on the spot), it wasnt exclusive to negroes. Yes, they bore the brunt of the highest numbers (slightly less than 3-1), but a lot of anglos were lynched too.....
Violence in the United States against Black Americans, especially in the South, rose in the aftermath of the Civil War, after slavery had been abolished and recently freed black men were given the right to vote. Violence rose even more at the end of the 19th century, after southern white Democrats regained their political power in the South in the 1870s. States passed new constitutions or legislation which effectively disfranchised most blacks and many poor whites, established segregation of public facilities by race, and separated blacks from common public life and facilities. Nearly 3,500 African Americans and 1,300 whites were lynched in the United States between 1882 and 1968, mostly from 1882 to 1920.
