    Funny, the KKK and the other white terrorists of the 'old' south never seemed to have too much trouble in lynching anybody.

    It's an amazingly rare occurrence and, while the incidents tended to get a lot of press, it was never a "common" practice.

    It is indeed.

    But is not at all rare in trying to stage a murder and make it look lie suicide. Which this appears top be based on the evidence at hand. We don't know if the marks on the neck match the borrowed belt. We do not know what happened to his original shoes, all of which scream for further investigation.

    My understanding is that an investigation was already conducted. There's a difference between investigating an incident and looking for evidence to support an existing opinion.

    An investigation with that many unanswered question looks more like a cover up to me

    Before everyone gets all foamy about racism and race and lynching and the KKK and revisiting the civil war....

    shouldnt there be some sort of determination that an actual crime was committed?

    Not common, perhaps, but hardly rare.

    Lynching Statistics

    Of course since these statistics are almost 50 years old, the numbers will have increased.

    Of course, but for some to pretend that a black man being lynched in the South is somehow beyond comprehension is...well...dumb.

    And very few if any people in NC today care about such things enough to kill a young man over it.
