    if you disagree in your next post simply quote me saying "there are no racial aspects to this story"
    So you admit you posted this because of the perceived racial element to the story, even though you repeatedly pushed back on the application of the word "lynch" to racism.

    Got it.

    You want me to copy all of the quotes you made in this thread saying that the word "lynch" has no racist element?

    Sorry, you and whoever else is in the "we" waiting with you is going to have to wait. There are too many of those posts from you in here.

    Here's the quote from the article again:

    Claudia Lacy says she can accept anything: even that her youngest son committed suicide -- if it's proven and explained to her.However, she says, local and state investigators have done neither to support their theory that Lennon Lacy hanged himself one summer night."That's all I've ever asked for: what is due, owed rightfully to me and my family -- justice. Prove to me what happened to my child,"
    In my mind, if she can accept that her son committed suicide, and directly asks for the police to "justice - prove to me what happened to my child" and not "prove that he was lynched by some racist white boys" then she's not certain what happened, she suspects he was murdered, but is willing to accept that no murder occurred. And her request is for a proper investigation, not a conviction.

    Any more than that, I can't say.

    So the title of the OP is wrong, and she didn't really say this was a lynching (which is a crime).

    By the way, in the post of mine that you quoted, I never said anything about "racist white boys" so I have no idea why you put that in quotation marks as if I did. I used the word "crime".

    I have no idea how you made that (confusing) leap. You said you looked forward to more threads like this one. Makes sense because for some reason this one interested you. I'd imagine we'd all look forward to more threads that interest us.

    My attention was drawn the other day to the thread title. And this one is interesting to you and others because you're already convinced there was a racial motivation here. That's also why the NAACP is involved. The OP tried to deny there was any racial aspects to this story. And we all know that's bull****.
    I'm not convinced he was murdered. About the only thing that's clear based on the reporting so far is the investigation was incompetent or at least incomplete with lots of obvious and significant unanswered questions.

    But IF there was a murder, the fact that he was hanged seems to suggest a racial motivation.

    I'm not convinced of anything either way in this story. I'm sure there is a lot the police know that they won't release even to the family. The shoe thing is still odd. Deaths being ruled suicide have on occasion been proven otherwise with further investigation, including exhumation of bodies decades after the death.

    I hope for the mother's sake she gets the answers - good, bad or otherwise.

    Because its their opinion, just like its their opinion that he was murdered.

    LAMO look at you desperately trying to backpedal! FAIL
    The word lynch in fact is not affected by race and that fact will never change.

    The lie you made up was this "The OP tried to deny there was any racial aspects to this story. And we all know that's bull****."

    that is a lie and its unsupportable thats why you keep deflecting and DODGING the request. In the future simply dont post lies and you can avoid these mistakes.Your post fails and facts win again

    So the entire purpose of the thread was to showcase a story about some kid whose death was ruled a suicide and his mother disagrees. No racial element at all.

    Okay.

    Then CNN went off the rails to imply racial elements throughout that entire article. There's obviously no racial element in this story. I wonder why the NAACP is involved in it. Apparently they're in the wrong place.

    So it's just a thread about suicide that doesn't appear to the mother to be suicide. Sad, but hardly breaking news.
