    When people think of a lynching, we think it requires a noose which is totally erroneous.

    A lynching by definition is the homicide of a person without due process.

    Garner...lynched in broad daylight and thousands watched it via video.

    Crawford...Lynched in broad daylight and thousands watched it via video

    Rice...lynched in broad daylight and thousands watched it in broad daylight.

    Brown...lynched in broad daylight and dozens were eye witnesses.

    And these can be construed as what is known as High-Tech lynchings as well, serious brother, you are correct:


    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    ... Sister, if you are comfortable with demonstrating a need to define the word lynching, its fine. Be mindful however, when Clarence Thomas used the phrase, “high-tech lynching,” we knew it wasn’t to be taken literal; not the same with this thread’s title: Another Black Man Lynched. Until read, it was taken as presented, an actual hanging.

    Peace In,

    Critics rebuke Mississippi senator's 'public hanging' remark

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A newly published video shows a white Republican U.S. senator in Mississippi praising someone by saying: "If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row."
