I would like to add that we should not misconstrue the word lynching. In actuality, it has less to do with a rope and more to do with the horror and violence aimed at Blacks throughout America’s racist history. Taking that into account, we can surmise that Blacks are still being lynched to this day. The same racist fundamentals apply to those crimes as they did when Jesse Washington was lynched. It is a racist, heartless murder that warns other members of a group to take heed. No difference. Just because there are no laws that advocate for lynchings does not mean that they don’t take place.
