Lighten up, Francis. In his day, he was not doing anything abnormal or exceptional. He was not a criminal by the standards of his day. We cannot judge people in the past by the standards of today. To do so is lame-o.

I rather doubt that lynching was legal, even by the standards of his day.... And it seems quite likely that Mr. Simkins played those games.

And if Texas did not pursue or prosecute those who took part in those acts of murder, that is nothing to be proud of.

It's amazing the lengths to which you fellows will go to excuse the inexcusable.

Well golly, it seems "quite likely" that you molested my puppy last night, but since I have no proof of that, that statement is merely conjecture, just like your comments are.

Anybody can make wild claims. And no, I know you didn't molest my puppy. It was FReeper Colonel Kangaroo. He hates puppies, as well as anything involving Southern pride. This thread is lamer by his absence. I miss his irrational hatred sometimes.

Fucking black boys have evened THAT score a few thousand times over the last 50 years...

How many white people do blacks get to kill or rape before we can let the approximately 1500 (possibly) innocent blacks "lynched" between 1882-1968 rest in peace?

Whom do we get to demonize for the 1300 whites "lynched" during the same time frame?
