I couldn't figure out where to put this so feel free to put it someplace else if you don't like it here.

New TV, recently, has had a bunch of stuff to do with lynching. The inference seems to be that lynching seems to be all about the abuse of blacks. This is not the case. Here are two massacres that happened to chinese:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_massacre_of_1871

I am not saying that the blacks have not suffered but we should also remember that white Americans are really kinda full spectrum racists and don't always pick favorites. We have a long, and varied, history of "If they ain't like us - KILL EM!"

For more abuse of the Chinese google "Chinese Exclusion Act" (parts of which are still valid and working)

I have probably posted something about this before so - apologies. (repeating myself - something to do with old age)
