That's a completely meaningless statistic.

How is it meaningless? Murder is murder isn't it?

And dead people are dead people. More Americans are killed each year by hepatitis than died in 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, combined.

Am I trying to minimize the importance of 9/11 or Pearl Harbor? No. But don't manipulate statistics to try to minimize the impact of lynching, which was a form of domestic terrorism. The power of terrorism on a population far surpasses its numerical toll.
