    Hello Family,

    Has there ever been a White person executed (by the govt) in this country, for the murder of a Black person?

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    If I'm not mistaken, two of the three men guilty of the dragging death of the Texas Brother(rest his soul), are scheduled for execution in the future. I don't wish death on any innocent soul, but this particular case will bring about justice long overdue.

    Sister Spicy ... thanks ... but that is a different question/answer.

    Not have any been sentenced to such, but have any actually received such.

    Do you know any like that?

    ...............You mean James Bryd, Jr? And if you did, I don't think they will face the death penalty; they will just 'rot in the cell' like Byron De La Beckwith, the person responsible for the assassination of Medgar Evers.

    Wrong, destee.Are you from Mobile?How can you forget the Donald hanging and a white person was executed for the crime and his mother with Morris Dees sued the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and owned their building with the judgement? Also in AL during slavery a white person was executed for killing a Black. A po white trash killed a slave and the slave owner pushed for execution cause the po white man could not reimburse him the value of the slave.Treated as a property crime. That case was cited when the Donald trial was going on.

    Brother Yaphet Al-Wynn ... what am i wrong about?

    Yes, you're absolutely right, i am from Mobile and i forgot about Michael Donald! I had just moved back to Mobile, in late 1981, and Michael was killed in March of '81. I remember thinking back then, gosh, is this the place to be?!

    I found the following story regarding Michael Donald, for those interested:


    As the article states, the above is the first time a white man had been executed for a crime against an African American since 1913.

    Have there been any since Henry Hayes in 1997?

    Hmmmm ... a White man executed in 1913 for crimes against an African American? Does anyone know about this 1913 incident? Who or what was that about?

    Thanks Brother for helping me to recall this.

    :heart:

    ps ... here is another link regarding Michael Donald.

    Yeah Pan ... thanks to everyone who shared in this thread! :toast:

    The history lesson isn't over ... we need to find out about the 1913 execution. I've been looking on the Internet and have only been able to come up with the following:


    Interesting huh? No names (yet) ... just two outlaw white men, hung for killing a Black man!?

    Family ... if yall know or find anything about this (or other executions), please share. Thanks.

    :heart:
