    killing people that society deemed undeserving of legal protection. You don't see people getting upset when a pedophile gets murdered by the father of an abused child, and people back then didn't care when a black person got lynched for assaulting a white person. It also strengthened public resolve. If you helped hang a black person from a tree (or at least watched it happen without stopping it) you gave solidarity to the rest of the mob. That kind of group trust was helpful in some cases.

      The extrajudicial killings were a way to force rulings even if many if the people they lynched would have been innocent or guilty. It was basically a society that never really grew into respecting the justice institutions that were already well built.

        I think the issue was that the judicial system was known to give really cupcake sentences to rapists or murderers. Get 5-8 years for raping a 12 year old girl. And it upset a lot of people.

        They're on a beach and it's very likely not the East Coast because those parts of the country would have been too conservative for women to be posing nude outdoors like that. California was always a relaxed, anything-goes state since frontier times and it had the first nude beaches in the country.

            The latitude? SoCal is at 34N which would have different lighting conditions from the Northeast which is more like 40N. Or Florida which is further to the south.

      They did but it was usually a land/labor dispute with mostly Mexicans and Chinese. It was also more of an intimidation tactic rather than the mob chimping out over some hysteric white roastie.

    A way to control and threaten people to maintain social and political power. The threat of getting lynched had a high if not at times more then getting lynched because it meant you had a target in your back. That is if you even get a warning.

          also if youre implying it was Whites doing the lynching youre also wrong. blacks lynched other because their access to the justice system was limited.
          also black crime was lower, so we see how that turned out.

Probably has to do with the fact that his dad was a proper 100% black man from Africa unlike most American light skins, whose dad, even though considered fully black, is about 20-25% white on Average, making them more white than they are black, hence giving the light skin look.

          it's because the kid is too distantly related from both parents for a match, in fact that kid is going to have lots of trouble getting a transplant from *anyone*

              False. It's just less likely. They're more likely to get a match from someone who's genetically similar, including people with similar ancestry.

              not false

              it's much, much less likely
              in fact, I defy you to find an example

              because the parents are so distantly related, the child (being more or less an average of the two generally) is nearly guaranteed to be too far away from both parents

              >someone who's genetically similar, including people with similar ancestry

              yeah, except there are startlingly few people who qualify to the point

                They may not have a great chance of a successful transplant if the donor is a family member who is genetically very different from them, but they might have a chance if there are other people with a similar mixed background who've become donors.
                Other organs and tissues can be different. Some of the first heart transplants were cross racial. One case actually caused controversy because a black man who was basically braindead was used as a heart donor for a white man, but his family was informed neither of his admittance to the hospital or of his heart being taken. This was in 1968.

                If I had a kid with a 100% black woman then for that kid to get a bone marrow transplant we would have to find another guy with exactly my genetic mix, who just happened to have a kid with a black woman who had the same genetic mix as the one I had a kid with, then their kid would have to also be a bone marrow donor.

                And dude, no one but one of your parents or a sibling is going to donate bone marrow, that's a serious surgery.

                Bone marrow donation isn't risky or particularly painful for the donor. There are registries where people sign up.

      Overall lynching is clearly a net positive, it's just there's a political stake in rehabilitating the past for modern sensibilities especially on places like twitter. Which is ironic given they constantly engage in a form of lynching where they try to destroy people's lives and turn them into pariahs by sensationalizing 'wrongthink'.

                Not quite. There are laws that are on the books but are often broken or simply very rarely enforced. There are also laws that are not particularly popular and are enforced but there's insufficient will or resources to overturn them. Laws can also be struck down by a court or no longer enforced by authorities, both of whom may be unelected depending on the jurisdiction.
                In the case of lynching, nobody objected to laws against murder, but the mob was moved to violate it themselves, either out of outrage, lack of legal infrastructure, or desire to subjugate. A lot of the time, sheriffs and other local authorities who would be in charge of handling criminal law would keep the suspect locked in the jailhouse until trial, and the mob would have to actually break in by smashing through the door.

    Most blacks who were lynched for rape were metoo'd by a white roastie. After these white women had their fun they basically called white men to get rid of the black.

    In Sikeston Missouri on January 26, 1942, an unusually late lynching occurred after Cleo Wright, a 26 year old black cotton mill worker, broke into the home of Grace Sturgeon, a 29 year old nurse whose husband was away in the Army. Wright lept at Mrs. Sturgeon with a knife and she fought him courageously, having three of her fingers slashed in the process. Wright punched her in the head but she continued to resist, so he slashed her abdomen open with the knife and fled. Although disemboweled and left with her intestines hanging out of her, she survived after receiving emergency surgery at a local hospital.

    Wright was found not long after the attack, still carrying the knife. Officer Hess Perrigran arrested Wright who attacked him with a smaller knife he had concealed in his coat. Perrigran also survived despite extensive bleeding, having his tongue cut, and losing several teeth. In their struggle, the officer shot Wright eight times. Hit in the arm and torso, Wright was bleeding heavily. Treated at a hospital, he was later returned to police custody. A mob quickly converged and Wright had supposedly confessed to attacking Mrs. Sturgeon, blaming it on "bad whiskey." He was dragged from the city jail as police drove around in a panic urging the black residents of Sikeston to take cover.

        They like trashy white women who act black. The "white virgin in a wheat field in a white dress" fantasy isn't really appealing to them.

      Lying about rape is a recent phenomenon
      Nowdays, the statut of rape victim is beneficial as rape victims are no longer ostracized, and only the compassion/attention factor remains
      100 years ago however, rape victims were seen as disgusting and avoided like plague, so claiming you were one didn't benefit you anyhow

      Although it probably happened sometimes, there are just as many cases like

      In Sikeston Missouri on January 26, 1942, an unusually late lynching occurred after Cleo Wright, a 26 year old black cotton mill worker, broke into the home of Grace Sturgeon, a 29 year old nurse whose husband was away in the Army. Wright lept at Mrs. Sturgeon with a knife and she fought him courageously, having three of her fingers slashed in the process. Wright punched her in the head but she continued to resist, so he slashed her abdomen open with the knife and fled. Although disemboweled and left with her intestines hanging out of her, she survived after receiving emergency surgery at a local hospital.

      Wright was found not long after the attack, still carrying the knife. Officer Hess Perrigran arrested Wright who attacked him with a smaller knife he had concealed in his coat. Perrigran also survived despite extensive bleeding, having his tongue cut, and losing several teeth. In their struggle, the officer shot Wright eight times. Hit in the arm and torso, Wright was bleeding heavily. Treated at a hospital, he was later returned to police custody. A mob quickly converged and Wright had supposedly confessed to attacking Mrs. Sturgeon, blaming it on "bad whiskey." He was dragged from the city jail as police drove around in a panic urging the black residents of Sikeston to take cover. Wright was doused in gasoline and set alight, "waving his arms futily in the air in the hope of mercy that never came"--onlookers called the smell of the burning body "horrific." City workers collected the remains of Wright, put them in a makeshift coffin, and transported them to an area cemetery where they were buried in a pauper's plot--Wright's family had not claimed the body for fear of their lives.

      One hundred or so black residents of Sikeston left the city never to return.

      where the woman fought her attacker hard.

    Literally just people angry and killing the local criminal. It’s a myth that they were all innocent. Extrajudicial executions are intolerable of course, you can’t have a functioning society with that going on, but most of them were actual rapists and murderers who were killed because the townies were poorly educated and didn’t fully grasp why we have a legal system and were impatient

      Not really, angry mobs are a hivemind that often form out of false or exaggerated rumors that confirm their biases. Look at mass outrages on the Internet for example

      Not really. Many lynch mobs contained the prominent citizens of the town, the doctors, lawyers, and other educated men, they were by no means 85 IQ Cletuses. That said, it was true that a lot of them were upset knowing the justice system would likely give out joke sentences to the rapist.

    US law enforcement did not have full control nor monopoly on violence in all of its territory. Lynching filled that vacuum, obviously.

      It's called the oldest profession for a reason.

      man, I'm glad it doesn't happen today. I don't want to live in a world where Sam Hose's lynching could be recorded on phone cameras for everyone to see.

      Friendly reminder that the principle authorship on the events of said lynching comes from a career academic israelite whose entire focus was on the evils of reconstruction and Jim Crow.

      I'm not saying it is false, but this is a history board after all. You should investigate your sources and not just accept whatever shit you find on Wikipedia
