Digging For Roots: Rape Culture is… [TW FOR RAPE]

diggingforroots:

 

…constantly citing that 1 in 6 women are raped without ever specifying

Newspapers alerted readers to the time and place of an upcoming lynching. In spectacles that often went on for hours, black men and women were routinely tortured and mutilated, then hanged or burned alive, all before festive crowds of as many several thousand white citizens, children in tow, hoisted on their fathers’ shoulders to get a better view.

Fifteen thousand men, women, and children gathered to watch eighteen-year-old Jesse Washington as he was burned alive in Waco, Texas, in May 1916. The crowd chanted “Burn, burn, burn!” as Washington was lowered into the flames. One father holding his son on his shoulders wanted to make sure his toddler saw it.

"My son can’t learn too young," the father said.

Across the South, someone was hanged or burned alive every four days from 1889 to 1929, according to the 1933 book “The Tragedy of Lynching”, for such alleged crimes as “stealing hogs, horse-stealing, poisoning mules, jumping labor contract, suspected of killing cattle, boastful remarks” or “trying to act like a white person.” Sixty-six were killed after being accused of “insult to a white person.” One was killed for stealing seventy-five cents.

“Brisenia Flores, a nine year old girl, was murdered in Arizona, was shot by a group of anti-immigrant vigilantes. They forced their way into her home looking to steal money for drugs to be used to finance a citizen border protection organization.
They killed her father, wounded her mother and then killed the nine year old for reasons that still make no sense. Basically, it was a group of anti-immigrants who killed a little Latina girl to pay for their anti-immigrant activities. 
Why did she get no media coverage?
