I remember when they took them 7 colored boys to the electric chair. I went over to the church and told the Lord that it just not seem right for that to happen to them colored boys. The Lord say to me "It ain't right. One day in your lifetime, I shall close every factory in this town and one day the people who were silent and thier children and their children's children will beg for the hard, stale bread crumbs that falls from the tables of the colored." Yes, sir. I just the messenger. That what the Lord said

What about their victim? Put yourself in her place and tell me Martinsville is cursed because 7 blacks raped a white girl(which you just did). They were guilty and justice was served.

Word has it that the victim was having an affair with one of the seven. Doesn't excuse the rape, if it indeed happened, but the fact that every single person executed in the state of Virginia for that crime happened to be of Negro descent is something that's more than just a remarkable coincidence.

Is this thread against capital punishment or racism?

It is not a giant coincidence that a group of people who commit a crime together happen to be of the same race. Would it have been a remarkable coincidence if they had all been white? Or Indian? Or Russian?

If you think Henry County businesses and factories have failed because of a curse, then you should learn about how businesses and factories actually operate. When our laws made it more profitable to have products produced overseas, businesses closed American factories to do the more profitable thing: have their products manufactured where it costs less.

Curses are made of fantasy. Join the real world.

So every former textile/furniture town in Virginia, North and South Carolina was cursed as well? Cracks me up!

You are absolutely correct. I knew one of the people who served on the jury in that trial. He died at around 90 years old and was quite wealthy...guess he was cursed as well! LOL

I just read about this execution last night of the 7 men. What in the world!!??????!! I'm literally SHOCKED by this. I used to live in Martinsville VA and had never heard of this. But what I do know to be true and had witnessed firsthand was a very deep racist tone to this area. Very Sad... And you know... It may be a little far fetched in your mind about the decline in economic status, loss of jobs..."a curse".. And you may be laughing and that's your right to do so. But I will say.. I find nothing about any of this.. Wether fact or fiction, to be "funny" or laughable just doesn't seem the right approach. But obviously it's your approach. Anyways... The story saddens me on so many levels. It should sadden others as well
