Did you know that 5 black men were once lynched by a mob in the Brickyard area of Richlands? Likely your relatives and neighbors participated or looked the other way. When I look at the state of Richlands these days and the problems our young people have I can only ask: Are we now being punished for the sins of our fathers?

So what? Most americans, not just us from richlands, have something in their family tree. Either in the oak tree or the genes!

there's no such thing as a curse. although i'd be willing to bet that being chock full of racists doesn't make it easy for richlands to be anything but a hole in the wall.

I did some research on the lynching in the brickyard a while back and from what i found was there were three men who were hung in the brickyard because they beat up two brothers and one of them died.

i heard there was a hanging up on big creek right above the old holmes junkyard in the early twentieth century but hanging was old hat in the 19 th and early 20th centuries. as a matter of fact i think the state of utah still uses hanging as the means of execution. anyway there isn't any curse on richlands. if you think richlands is so bad a place to live, you should visit some of the places i have been to. one thing about it, if you think there is a curse on richlands or you do not like living there, we live in america, not russia, and the road is open to anyone who wants to use it. have a wonderful day.

I left a LONG time ago brother and didn't look back.

There's a difference between using hangin as a means of execution and a mob overpowering police so they can round up some black dudes and hang them in the Brickyard.

There is such a thing as a curse. The Bible says it will curse your decendants for all kinds of stuff.

I really get tired of hearing people trying to lay guilt trips on people for something their ancestors did or because of what one race of people does to another race of people.Anyone that has ever been to a city knows that the majority of blacks are extremely racist toward whites,that doesn't mean that all blacks are like that now does it?

look at grundy. maybe it's true. blacks wouldn't even ride a school bus to sporting events into that place after the stories they heard. i don't know if they will even today.

in those days they shall say no more, the fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. but everyone shall die for his own iniquity. every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge. jeremiah 31:29,30. hmm, i wonder what that means. could it possibly be that i won't answer for the sins of my parents but for my own? do i have to answer for the sins of my great grandparents or will i answer for my own sins? hmm, i wonder. everyone shall die for his own iniquity. this generation does not have to pay for the sins of 150, 200 years ago or for any other generation. i will answer for my own sins and not my parents sins or my childrens sins and my sins are under the blood of jesus christ. richlands or any other community is not under any curse for something their ancestors did. if any are under a curse, they willingly put themselves under a curse. that is bottom line. this is the same twisted thinking, reasoning and teaching that people in 2009 teach that the jews killed jesus, are under a curse and the church has displaced the jews. the jews are not under a curse, they did not kill jesus and they are not displaced by anyone. whether or not any folks were hung in the brickyard or on big creek is irrelevant today. it is what is happening today that is relevant to today. what we do with our lives is the important issue, not what our forefathers did or did not do. they had their pass through this life and now it is our turn. make the best of it. there is no curse upon richlands. what is hovering over richlands is the love and mercies of God. receive it and bask in it.

same for grundy and any other community. if there is a curse, this generation brought it on. we do not answer for our forefathers sins in richlands, grundy or any where else.

I think richlands is cursed because of all the witches or wiggins that live there, also because your children act like heathens ,just read their forum.here are the parents when these children are posting such things. I would sell their computer in a heartbeat.
