Dealing with Lynchings

"Of the many inhuman outrages of this present year, the only case where the proposed lynching did not occur, was where the men armed themselves in Jacksonville, Fla., and Paducah, Ky, and prevented it. The only times an Afro-American who was assaulted got away has been when he had a gun and used it in self-defense. The lesson this teaches and which every Afro-American should ponder well, is that a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give. When the white man who is always the aggressor knows he runs as great a risk of biting the dust every time his Afro-American victim does, he will have greater respect for Afro-American life. The more the Afro-American yields and cringes and begs, the more he has to do so, the more he is insulted, outraged and lynched."- Ida B. Wells 1892

This blog is in response to the most recent lynching of a "black" male. His name was Frederick Jermaine Carter. His death (like all of the other hangings of "black" males within the past 30 years was ruled a suicide).
Hanging victim Frederick Jermaine Carter

The last way that a "black" person would choose to commit suicide would be by hanging, in my opinion. We should no longer be surprised about these kinds of situations, especially in places like Mississippi.

Every "Black" person old enough to learn how to use a firearm, should own a firearm. I suspect that one of the reasons that many "black" males are lured into committing felonious acts is so that they cannot acquire a firearm. So stay away from anything that can get you a felony.

Find out what the firearms laws are in your state and proceed to follow them in the process of acquiring your firearms. That means acquiring a permit if need be. Attempt to get a concealed carry permit in your state. Become a card carrying member of the National Rifle Association. Then start or join a local gun club.

DO NOT BREAK ANY LAWS in your process, because you the "non-white" person can easily get caught up, and placed in Greater Confinement. By all means necessary stay out of areas where you are not wanted, unless you absolutely have to go there to do something constructive. It does appear that Mr. Carter was there to work and he wasn't alone, which is the other suggestion(to not be alone in such areas). But, he walked off. Never walk off! Stick close to your partner and maintain constant contact if you have to be alone (like a restroom break for instance), for a small time.


  1. I recently read that there have been 89 Black male hanging deaths ruled "suicides" in the past five years alone.


    Back in 1998, an article was published that discussed the fact that there were 22 Black men found hanging in jail cells in Mississippi between 1987 and 1993.

    Yet, this article is asking if this is the first lynching in 20 years!

    People have been conned into believing that lynchings ended when Jim Crow supposedly ended. Not so! Lynchings are still happening, they just are disguised as suicides.

    And, oh yeah, Jim Crow is still alive and well too in the (in)justice system.

    This article contains very good advice, and I will pass it on to as many people as I can!
