The Night Riders appointed themselves the keeper of stopping Blacks from being uppity. The Whites of Fulton County, like 50 of them, Night Riders, surrounded David Walker's house, during night, of course, on October 3, 1908. David Walker refused to come out, and so Fulton's Night Riders poured COAL OIL on his house, and set it on fire. Walker pleaded for safety of him and his family, and when he walked outside, his body was riddled with bullets. Same thing with David Walker's wife, who was holding a baby in her arms. Both Mother and Child Walker was murdered by the 50 Whites, but Mamma Walker still held onto her baby, as she fell to the ground, dead. 3 more of David Walker's children came out, and the Whites from Fulton County showed them no mercy either. David Walker's eldest son stayed in the house, and got burnt up in the fire.

The reason why the Night Riders did this? Racism. Wyte Supremacy. Because they are sick and sadistic, and have no sense of what's right or wrong, they are psychopaths, and they have no sense of Black people being humans. It's ridiculous. It's 2012, wyte racists need to get outta Kentucky. You've had it long enough.

You realize those in the gang back then are long gone? Right? And I'm sure they got theirs at some point in life. Bringing up shit from the racism days will do nothing but start MORE bs. I get so tired of hearing that, "it's because I'm black." and it being okay for certain people to get away with things because of their skin tone!! If we were all created equal and we were born with equal rights then why do we rarely see it. Some are just too afraid someone will pull the "racist" card.
It isn't just whites that are racists. Black people are just as guilty. The past is the past. Don't let people's ignorance from over a century ago affect how you live your life now!

Those who dont learn history are doomed to repeat it. And yeah, Black folks are racist, but so are whites, and who owns the banks, and the politicians, and most industries, and land, and housing ? Everything has an effect... and how come when I was inquiring about this b4, nobody said anything ? Did u about this b4 I posted it ?

The reason why David Walker and his entire was murdered: David Walker swore at a white woman. That is all. That is the crime white supremacists of Fulton County murdered David Walker, and his entire family.

The reason whites own everything is because blacks haven't worked since slavery.If you wanna own something get off welfare and get a ducking job.

I was born in this rotten western ky. city, I'm 74 years old, and never knew what it was like to go through a front door at a white home. My mother couldn't even have dreamed of the so called equal righted that I enjoy. My heart still remembers how she worked all of her life for nothing, but I don't know what hunger feels like because of her and my father. I don't ever remember either of them ever letting on that they knew of this lynching of an entire family by the people of the devil in Hickman, ky. on Oct. 3, 1908.
