Reuben Stacy, a 37-year-old black man, hangs from a tree on Old Davie Road in Fort Lauderdale, blood trickling down his body and dripping off his toes. Behind him, a white girl, about 7 years old, looks on, a strange smile on her face as she takes in the sight of the "strange fruit" her elders had just created that hot day in July 1935.

What a repulsive horror show. Humanity at its most hideous. And they all probably went to church together when it was over.

Humans are fucked up animals. In the old west, when there was to be a hanging, families often brought picnics. Why do we expose our children to our cruelty...SMH

@slydr68
200 years after the civil war !

@slydr68 Unfortunately, it's not just the south.

@St-Sinner Well, more like 150 years, but admittedly I can be a nit-picker.

@dan325
But nobody else other than Trump ever asked this question.

@St-Sinner That's because the answers are already known (except, apparently, to Trump). Primarily, the rich plantation owners controlled the narrative in the South and used their bought and paid for churches and politicians to manipulate the narrative so as to bring the poor, stupid, cannon-fodder rednecks on board. Slavery was an enormous economic windfall for these "people," and they weren't about to give it up.

“The banality of evil” is a phrase that applies here.
