Most people will never know the truth about lynching, which I advocate here on this site from time to time.
1. A quarter of the victims were white.
2. Virtually all of those lynched had committed horrific crimes.
Lynching is alive and well in India and in Peru, two places I’m familiar with. I suspect other cultures also still practice lynching. It’s not only a punishment for savages who commit rapes and murders, but also a deterrent.
Excerpt from NOLA
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Visitors to the new National Memorial for Peace and Justice first glimpse them, eerily, in the distance: Brown rectangular slabs, 800 in all, inscribed with the names of more than 4,000 souls who lost their lives in lynchings between 1877 and 1950.
