Now as far as the "killing" over race is concerned id like to think that NOBODY in america could do something so irrational and evil but thats not the case.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
you are actually saying what i have said the entire time you just dont know it lol
There is no MIDDLE between me and him. There was no "real" argument, i presented the facts and definition of the word and he tried (and failed) to argue against them. Guess you didnt read the whole thread (i dont blame you) or misunderstood. There are facts and he was factually wrong. Why was he wrong? simply because i gave him an example of what a lynching COULD be and he said it was false. That example was this:
A black man is hung by a group for dating a white woman, they hung him for dating a white women and they believe that is wrong.
he stated that this would not be a lynching because the black kid wasnt hung for a LEGAL crime, his statement was 100% false. He STILL denies this fact.
So instead of getting off track ill be sticking to the only real item in question here. Is my example and statement true? COULD that be an example of lynching? yes or no

Which clearly shows it is quite rare past the 1950's, especially considering population increase.

1) mob (two or more people)
2) "any" act of violence
3) leading to death.
So the motive could be anything that a crowd could come up with - being black and in the wrong place at the wrong time might be enough of an "offense."
