    . Everything comes in cycles dummy... Otherwise what will be the new trend or war created, and then fought afterwards ? People are quite creative in creating issues where none exist.

    Either money crooks or anyother crook and/or bad person in life, the results of being bad are the same. The degree in which some decide to take their bad does vary. Laws are supposed to curtail the bad, but if don't enforce the laws at the very least, and then create a revolving door justice system in the process, well we get what we get but then we complain about it as if we are dumbfounded about it all ?? LOL.

    . Why don't you go through out the world in comparison of ? America may have been the most safe during different time periods for the most part in the world. Yeah, yeah, yeah of course we had our share of bad going on in this country during different time periods sure, but in comparison to the world we were relatively safer in the world during the world events throughout time.

    The Negro Holocaust: Lynching and Race Riots in the United States,1880-1950

    by
    Robert A. Gibson

    The United States has a brutal history of domestic violence. It is an ugly episode in our national history that has long been neglected. Of the several varieties of American violence, one type stands out as one of the most inhuman chapters in the history of the world—the violence committed against Negro citizens in America by white people. This unit of post Reconstruction Afro-American history will examine anti-Black violence from the 1880s to the 1950s. The phenomenon of lynching and the major race riots of this period, called the American Dark Ages by historian Rayford W. Logan, will be covered.

    Immediately following the end of Reconstruction, the Federal Government of the United States restored white supremacist control to the South and adopted a “laissez-faire” policy in regard to the Negro. The Negro was betrayed by his country. This policy resulted in Negro disfranchisement, social, educational and employment discrimination, and peonage. Deprived of their civil and human rights, Blacks were reduced to a status of quasislavery or “second-class” citizenship. A tense atmosphere of racial hatred, ignorance and fear bred lawless mass violence, murder and lynching.

    In the last decades of the nineteenth century, the lynching of Black people in the Southern and border states became an institutionalized method used by whites to terrorize Blacks and maintain white supremacy. In the South, during the period 1880 to 1940, there was deep-seated and all-pervading hatred and fear of the Negro which led white mobs to turn to “lynch law” as a means of social control. Lynchings—open public murders of individuals suspected of crime conceived and carried out more or less spontaneously by a mob—seem to have been an American invention. In Lynch-Law, the first scholarly investigation of lynching, written in 1905, author James E. Cutler stated that “lynching is a criminal practice which is peculiar to the United States.”1

    Most of the lynchings were by hanging or shooting, or both. However, many were of a more hideous nature—burning at the stake, maiming, dismemberment, castration, and other brutal methods of physical torture. Lynching therefore was a cruel combination of racism and sadism, which was utilized primarily to sustain the caste system in the South. Many white people believed that Negroes could only be controlled by fear. To them, lynching was seen as the most effective means of control.

    . And your purpose for bringing this history up that has been corrected by the new generations over time means what now ?? Is it that the generations are thought to be weakened down enough that they are now ripe for exacting vengence on them ??? Hmmm. I mean has there been a concerted effort by certain groups or members of groups over a long period of time now, to then weaken the targeted groups by injecting their minds with enough poison to get them set up for the final nail in their coffin ?? Do tell.
