    So you were quoting yourself and then silently put it into a Supreme Court Justice's mouth to sneer at him for being igorant for using our mispronounciation - when it was your words. Got it.

    "Civil rights leaders outraged" = rich professional racebaiters seek publicity.

    It seems that when it comes to the many ways quotation marks can be used, you're just not "getting it"

    Yeah, I get it. I would venture that actually Scalia probably has a superior vocabulary to yours.

    Well, to put it in perspective, it wasn't everyone that was being lynched when they attempted to exercise their constitutional right to vote. It was a select group.

    Be careful, you may confuse him with facts.

    It rarely happened and doesn't happen anymore. So, let's join the modern world.

    It happened in the last election and itis still happening, although much of it is done indirectly or in a stealth mode.

    The purpose of it is to make it harder for democrats to vote.

    That's BS. It happened a lot, but just like Holocaust deniers, there are some who are attempting to whitewash the murders that frequently happened in the South. And, as for that BS about it not happening any more, tell that to the family of James Byrd, who was lynched and dragged to his death behind a pickup truck, just a few short years ago. Now, it is true that such incidents are rare today, but Mississippi and other Southern states don't deserve the credit for that. Credit the Federal government that sent troops in to restore order, and who passed Title V. Without the Federal government intervening, lynchings would still be common in the South.

    Yes, Virginia, Mississippi Burning was real. Rosewood was real. And lynchings were very real. Here is a little something for the edification and education of the deniers:
