Schooled by Youtube: THE HANGING BRIDGE ~ Shubuta Mississippi

0 Posted by - April 3, 2018 - Injustices, LATEST POSTS, Schooled By Youtube

At Black Then, we often see videos that make us stop and think. They frequently reveal information that is not broadcasted to the masses and are created by great talents that are not shown in mainstream media.

In this video we found, we learn more about It’s been seventy years now, since two african american fourteen year olds, Ernest Green, and Charles Lang, were abducted from the Clarke County jail in Quitman Mississippi, by an all White vigilante mob that beat, mutilated, and hung their bodies from the notorious Hanging Bridge near Shubuta. Because of what the mob believed was the attempted R*ped of Dorothy Martin, a school age White girl that was seen in the presence of the two african american boys along the roadside by another passing White which quickly led to then Clarke County Sheriff Lloyd McNeal taking the two boys into custody for attempted R*ped.

    Man,IAm in Shubuta ,right now .I was raised up here in Waynesboro,my family was never a part of this gross injustice.This makes me sick that they won't investigate these deaths.My grandfather and his father built that hanging bridge ,and I know they never intended it to be used in that manner .I am shaken!

    White ppl killed more then black the difference is if white ppl killed black ppl it was justice no one would be convicted & if black ppl killed a white person it would be considered a injustice and that they were animals,savages who deserve to be put to death for killing a white person regardless of the reason….

    Probably hard to find someone around that was around 70 years ago.  If this is a history lesson then good.  I don't think it is.

    Hmmm. I know another negro that needs a trip to the bridge. Just a few hours south of Washington DC too.

    My Dad's father, Howard Smith, was born in Shubuta, and was sent to Fresno, California due to the hangings in Mississippi by his mother, whom eventually relocated to Fresno as well. I believe her maiden name was Carter, or she was a cousin of a family named Carter. It was my understanding that some of the Carter family moved to Philidelphia.

    My grandparents' house was the last house on the road when the lynchings occurred.

    Blacks should be hung!   When I see what happened to the white girl:  Jessica Chambers—-I say blacks should be taken to the nearest tree!

    History is filled with hate.
    The future will be too because we are too stupid to understand acceptance.

    Unless African Americans can scare the living daylights through reciprocal violence against White Americans they will continue to kill Blacks with relative impunity. The Sheriffs and cops are all Klansmen. There are no peaceful ways to teach White Americans how to be fair and just.

    Viet Namese rice farmers and peasants taught the white US administration that it is not their size or the destructive capabilities of the weapons of the parties is what matters. It is the quest for justice that drives us all

    The KKK originated from the migrants known as the Ulster Scots! They are the main players in the so-called Bible belt. They were brought into Ireland by the English to control Irish people. They kill and hate Catholics and indeed anyone who is different with a vengeance in Northern Ireland. The English give them the title 'British ' to keep control of the North of Ireland The Irish Republican Army was formed to get them out of their country. The English still have control in one part of Ireland with these people as their tools of suppression ! The English invented the term British as a control system when they conquered different countries. This pretense was to brainwash the conquered into believing –that we are all equal so do what we tell you. They used the populations as cheap labor . Slaves worked ultra long hours .Black people were abused and butchered with the direct and indirect actions of the British! The Brits have a lot to answer for in the whole world they have brought war and slavery even in the present times
