Photos and videos for #Lynching

Seeing some of my students in the musical “Parade” tonight was superb. The events leading to the 1915 lynching of Leo Frank strike loud resonant chords to today. This is Leo Frank's appearance in the "Class Book Of The Senior Class Of Cornell University, 1906," courtesy of the Cornell University Rare Book and Manuscript Collection. #leofrank #atlanta #marietta #georgia #cuero #texas #brooklyn #nyc #lynching #cornell #yearbook #parade #musical cornelluniversity cornell_library #prejudice #history #innocence #remember #respect #love

~ And here we mourn ~ In memory of the young man who was bound, mocked and attacked brutally in the name of stealing rice. A pretty solid depiction of us as a society don't you think? Enough said.

शर्म आनी चाहिए ऐसे समाज का हिस्सा कहलाने में। इंसानियत को शर्मसार कर देने वाली एक सेल्फ़ी सामने आयी है , जिसमें एक युवक को बंधक बनाकर पीटा जा रहा है और तमाशबीन लोग उस मार खाए कमज़ोर युवक के साथ सेल्फ़ी लेने में व्यस्त है , भीड़ से पिटने के बाद युवक की मौत हो गयी। मामला केरल के पलक्कड जिले का है जहाँ एक आदिवासी व्यक्ति को एक किलो चावल चुराने के मामले में भीड़ ने पहले तो उसे बंधक बनाया फिर जमकर पीटा, फिर सेल्फ़ी ली और उसे सोशल मीडिया पर पोस्ट कर डाला। युवक की मौत से पहले ली हुई सेल्फी में यह दिखा कि आदिवासी युवक मधु के हाथ पैर बंधे हुए थे। बुरी तरह पिटाई के बाद मधु को पुलिस के हवाले कर दिया गया। पुलिस के मुताबिक, मधु को गंभीर चोट आई थी और पुलिस की गाड़ी में उसने उल्टी भी की।हॉस्पिटल ले जाते वक़्त रास्ते में ही उसकी मौत हो गई। सवाल यह की आख़िर हम कैसे समाज में तब्दील होते जा रहे है ? एक बिखारी चोर को पहले पिट पिट कर जान से मार डालना और फिर सेल्फ़ी लेके उसे अपलोड करना, यह वाक़या हैरान और परेशान दोनो करता है । बुद्धिजीवियों का इस क्रूर हत्या पर क्या कहना है ? या सब चुप रहेंगे ? #Uvayu #Kerala #GoonsOwnCountry #MobKilling #Lynching #Investigation #Selfie #Death #FoodTheif #MercyLess #Society #BeatenToDeath #युवायु

Black people are told to "forget" or "get over" slavery. We will never forget. Amerikkka is a decadent, hypocritical country. Karma will do it's job. Patience.... #ourstoryisrealhistorynothisstory #blackhistory365not28 #wewillneverforget #blackpeople #thewhitedevil #lynching

#day21 #blackhistorymonth #IdaBWells Ida Bell Wells-Barnett , more commonly known as Ida B. Wells, was an African-American #journalist, newspaper #editor, #suffragist, #sociologist, #feminist, Georgist, and an early leader in the Civil Rights Movement. She was one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909. Wells was born in Holly Springs, Mississippi. She lost her parents and a sibling in the 1878 yellow fever epidemic at a young age. She went to work and kept the rest of the family intact with the help of her grandmother. She moved with some of her siblings to Memphis, Tennessee where she found better pay for teachers. In the 1890s, Wells documented #lynching in the United States. She showed that lynching was often used in the South as a way to control or punish black people who competed with whites, rather than being based on criminal acts by black people, as was usually claimed by whites. She was active in women's rights and the women's suffrage movement, establishing several notable women's organizations. Wells was a skilled and persuasive rhetorician and traveled internationally on lecture tours.

*2019* by Rickey Laurentiis (TW) I could string him back up the tree, if you’d like. Return his skin’s meaning to an easy distance, coal dust, blaze And Willie Brown him. You Love how the blood muddies the original, The way it makes a stage of my speechifying, this leeching Capital from his dying, Like an #activist. I know I’m not supposed to sing Of his ringing Penetrability, some hole I open impose On the form—but all I see is #bullets, bullets discerning him, As years ago it was rope. I could pull it tighter, finger each bullet deeper, If you’d like, an inch rougher, Far enough to where becomes that second heat, erotic. I could use the erotic, If you’d like, So ungarish, baring not too frank A mood, subtle so you need it.— Funny How some dark will move illicit if you close your eyes, The way, say, my black Pleasure is named too explicit for a page, but this menace I put in it is not. I could yank and knot The rope, if you’d like, him like a strange fragment In them trees, And the word “again” spelled out about his neck Would be the rope’s predicate till let wild, patterned and Fierce his moan. It is a tragedy. No. It is a sonnet, how I know Already how he ends, But I could make him Her, if you’d like, regender them till merely Canvas for your “ #empathy,” Soup for my mouth. Still, if I could but just get This blunt, Burnt lynched body up From on Out the pocket behind my eye All #trees could be themselves again, all sound. . ~~~~~~~~ Copyright © 2018 #RickeyLaurentiis.

Here I go, this is my more then 40 years old Wolf Fur, it is older then that as I bought it second hand 40 years ago, Russian Wolf. Reaches down to 10 centimeter above floor, comes with a suitable Hat, same animal skin fur I live in a temperate climate where there is snow and cold temperature during the winter. I dress for the wheater, climate occasion. I don't dress to impress I don't dress for status, luxury. I don't dress for fashion. This fur keeps me warm in cold Sweden, I would never even think about dress in a fur in Dallas, Los Angeles or Dubai. ..Name it. When the temperature is 20-30 minus Celsius degree the fur keeps me warm outside. I don't use the fur inside if I can avoid it due to heavy sweat. Nowadays it is only on Östermalm and Old Town/Gamla stan, people do dare to use their old furs according to be 'lynched' by the mob. If someone complaints about my choice to wear this fur, I reply telling the age of the fur and I do honour the animals who gave their life so I can keep myself warm, and if I should have the fur and the wolfskins burned the poor animals should cry tears of blood in their 'heaven'. Children do understand this. My own children refuses to walk in my company if I wear this fur.Or any other fur. There is a REASON and the reason is FUNCTION. Both my great great grandfather and my grandfather wore Wolffurs, closed with a broderie belt. The animal skin were self shootened as the Wolf hord was large and in need to be hunted down as the cradle were hunted by wolfs. So go ahead now. ... A Fake fur do not do function A 'puffajacket' do not do function. Trial and error . #fur #wolf #function #climate #photooftheday #photography #picoftheday #reason #temperature #winter #insta #instagood #good #lynch #lynching #strong #photography #intelligence #likeit #loveit #wisdom #thinktwice #think #usage #beautiful

I feel compelled to briefly speak on a difficult topic, and that topic is the history of lynchings of African Americans. Rarely do we pay homage to the victims, or I don't believe there are many memorials or landmarks that speak their names or even acknowledge their existence. Thousands were recorded, but we all know that many of these heinous acts were not. Lynchings were widely supported used to enforce racial subordination and segregation. Lynchings were violent and public events that traumatized Black people throughout the country and were largely tolerated by state and federal officials. This was a clear form of domestic terrorism that was responsible for the deaths of thousands of Blacks primarily in the South. Many African Americans were tortured and murdered in front of picnicking spectators for not saying mister to a police officer, attempting to vote, trying to own land, protesting the lynching of a loved one, or simply being accused of a crime. People who participated in lynchings were celebrated and acted with impunity. Photographs of lynchings were used as postcards that circulated across the US. Our country has a deep historical wound that has yet to completely heal. In order for it to heal we must address the past and how this past is still deeply connected to our present. To my people that were victims of lynchings, I honor you on today. I will further honor you by walking in love, striving for unity, and never forgetting your sacrifice. Pic: Billie Holiday recorded a song that depicted the swaying of lynching victims from trees as "Strange Fruit". She would always sing this song emotionally with her eyes closed. #blackhistory #americanhistory #lynching #strangefruit #billieholiday #ancestors #homage
