Everyone knows that between 1941 and 1945, the Nazis forced 6 million nude Jews into fake shower rooms and chuckled krautishly as they suffocated from bug spray.
And everyone also knows that the Nazis had no reasons for doing it. None. Historians have constantly searched for reasons, and the best they’ve come up with is “boredom.”
However, what everyone might not know – or just chooses to forget – is that American negroes had a little Shoah of their own.
I’m talking, of course, about the thousands of lynchings that occurred between 1882 and 1968 – lynchings that, like the Holocaust itself, white people committed for no reason whatsoever.
Except possibly skin-hatred.
Fortunately, a memorial that reminds us of the fate of those poor, innocent blacks is opening to the American public this month, and Oprah Winfrey is one of its first visitors!
Oprah Winfrey brings 60 Minutes cameras into a new memorial dedicated to the thousands of victims of lynching that took place over a 70-year period following the Civil War. It will be the first time the public sees the inside of the structure and its 805 steel markers, each bearing the names of people murdered – often with thousands of onlookers amid a picnic-like atmosphere. Her report will be broadcast on 60 Minutes, Sunday, April 8 at 7:00 p.m., ET/PT on CBS.
Note the aesthetic similarities between this memorial in Montgomery, Alabama…
… and the Holocaust memorial in Berlin. Cohencidence?
The efforts to build “The National Memorial for Peace and Justice” were led by Bryan Stevenson, a lawyer who founded the Equal Justice Initiative. Asked by Winfrey why he chose to commemorate lynching as opposed to other injustices done by white people to the Black Community, he says the murderous acts were a way for whites to maintain political control over African Americans, who were supposed to get the right to vote after the Civil War. “Lynching was especially effective because it would allow the whole community to know that we did this to this person… a message that if you try to vote, if you try to advocate for your rights… anything that complicates white supremacy…and political power, we will kill you.”
Nope. Not true.
There are no verified newspaper accounts of whites lynching blacks because they tried to vote. Moreover, most blacks didn’t want to vote before 1964 (the year LBJ began his Great Society gibs program) because there were few government benefits to doing so.
Almost all blacks were lynched because they committed murders or rapes, and many of those blacks were lynched by fellow blacks.
Bryan Stevenson conveniently overlooks these facts because they don’t fit into the “whitey oppressed us” narrative on which his career depends. The same applies to Winfrey, whose $2.8 billion fortune is also built on the back of white guilt.
Among the more than 4,300 cases of lynching documented by Stevenson and his team was the story of Jesse Washington, a black man accused of a crime in Waco, Texas. One team member, criminal defense attorney Sia Sanneh, found a newspaper account of Washington’s murder. She tells Winfrey it described a crowd of 15,000, many “dressed in their Sunday best.” It detailed how Washington’s clothing was soaked in oil before he was tied to a tree and then lowered into a fire set beneath him. “I think it’s incredibly telling that death was not enough… People would be killed and then shot and then set on fire,” she says. “There are some cases where the body was dragged to the heart of the black community.”
Yeah, but what crime did Jesse commit? Stealing candy from the store? Accidentally drinking from the “whites only” water fountain? Having black skin?
Oh, that’s right; he brutally raped and murdered his white employer’s wife.
I wonder if any other blacks in the neighborhood attempted to rape and kill another white woman after Washington’s charred body was dragged through it.
It’s almost like our ancestors understood that negroes were animals whose behavior needed to be kept in check with demonstrations of strength. If we don’t dominate them, they dominate us.
A colorized photograph of Jesse Washington’s body being burned. Lol j/k, it’s normal negro behavior in modern-day Africa – the Africa that Bryan Stevenson and Oprah Winfrey were spared from thanks to white people.
Incidentally, aren’t tens of thousands of white people raped and killed by blacks annually in the United States? I wonder if those white victims – actual innocents – will get a memorial in their honor sometime in the near future.
I’m not holding my breath, fam.
