Tormentors had the last word at a lynching

Before tens of thousands of Black men, women, and children died at the end of a rope during lynching, the last word many heard was, ‘ni-ger’ Africa-Americans who willfully and casually refer to themselves as “ni-gers,”

Before tens of thousands of Black men, women, and children died at the end of a rope during lynching, the last word many heard was, ‘ni-ger’

Africa-Americans who willfully and casually refer to themselves as “ni-gers,” or “ni-gas” drank the “KKK-aid,” became addicted and transformed beneath a curse. The curse has been passed down through generations to today. Consequently, countless African-Americans are unable to refrain from continually stabbing themselves with this verbal saber! To impale oneself over and over ad infinitum is not endearment — it’s psychological and mental fratricide!

Thus, the lynching continues.

Think about it; the last word tens of thousands of Black men, women, and children heard while suspended from a tree as the hangman’s noose tightened around their neck before they died from a lack of oxygen or a broken neck — was “ni-ger!” Think about it!
