1/ A conservative friend of mine argued at various times and in different contexts (including racial preferences or affirmative action), that slavery ended in 1865, he had nothing to do with it, so why don't African-Americans "just get over it." #RaceMatters
2/ Yes, slavery ended in 1865 and while it contributed greatly to the wealth of white America, African-Americans were given nothing in return as the government reneged on its promise of 40 acres and a mule after the end of the Civil War. #RaceMatters…
3/ Compare this to the Homestead Act of 1866 which transferred an area of land in the west the size of CA and TX (10% of all US land) to whites who need only improve it for 5 years and file a deed.… #RaceMatters

My Sat #breakfast is devoted to Mamie Till-Mobley /
On August 28, 1955 Emmet Till, a 14 years old boy from Chicago visiting his family in Money Mississippi, was abducted, tortured, mutilated, shot in the head and sinked in the Tallahachie River by Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam 1/7
A brutal racist #lynching execution /
Emmet Till was the only child of Mamie Till-Mobley, a woman of great intelligence and rare courage / Going beyond the privacy of her personal tragedy and grief Mamie demanded for her son a public funeral with an open casket 2/7
50.000 people attended the service and the whole world saw the disfigured body of Emmet Till, a fine child murdered by racists / When Rosa Parks was asked why did she decide not to go in the back of the bus, she told that she thought of Emmet Till and simply could not do it 3/7

@KennethLeeAlle1 Florida used the appearance of a trial to send Joe to prison to die. His later-disbarred lawyer didn't present a defense. That's why the trial lasted less than 1 business day start to finish. Police threw away the evidence. Another lawyer gave up Joe's right to appeal.
@KennethLeeAlle1 Jurors never knew the older teen who testified that Joe had "confessed" was the initial suspect & had a record. They didn't know Joe has a 62 IQ, no record & no family to protect his rights. Defense atty never questioned fact that police failed to present DNA they collected.
@KennethLeeAlle1 Joe was saved by FL prisoners who contacted EJI in his behalf. But because a public defender waived Joe's right to appeal & because police destroyed the evidence, Bryan's only hope of relief was to have Joe's punishment deemed a 4th amendment violation.…

I want you all to read “Lynch Law” by Ida B. Wells, the Black woman activist who forced America to reckon with her own racial terror, to understand why #lynching is not a term to toss haphazardly.…
Read @eji_org’s site “Lynching in America,” so you can wrap@your mind around the pure domestic racial terror that Black Americans endured well after slavery.
Understand that even daring to *talk* about lynchings would get your office burned down, you’d be threatened with lynching, and run out of town. This is what happened to Ida B. Wells in Memphis.…

TW for what I am about to write about #lynching.
Last year I wrote about women who were lynched. This was more common than most people, even historians, were aware. Often the wives of lynched men were also lynched. #MaryTurner was one of these. She was also eight months pregnant.
[TW] #MaryTurner was hog-tied and hung upside down by her ankles. Her clothes were drenched in gasoline and set on fire. Her abdomen was sliced open like an animal's at slaughter and her baby pulled from her body. She. Was. Still. Alive. (Though not for long.)
[TW] It was recorded at the time that the baby "gave two feeble cries" before it too was killed.
The president is being held to the mandates of the US Constitution that he has violated. Not lynched.The sooner he is out of office, the sooner the country can heal.

The 1892 People's Grocery massacre in Memphis led to Iba B. Wells' discovery about lynchings:

"This is what open my eyes to what #lynching really was, an excuse to get rid of negros who are acquiring wealth and property, and thus keep the race terrorized"

There were 161 lynchings in 1892 alone.

The rationale in the WHITE PRESS for these lynchings was that Black men were beginning to rape white women.

Ida B. Wells's investigation found that lynchings were a direct result of white resentment of Black economic competition.

#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.
