    In those days, lynchings and shootings were quite common. "Well, he needed killing."

    Different time, different values. We needn't point out each and every justice or injustice. It was the way it was.

    Nowdays, we watch trials and investigations go on for years. Then, they were somewhat more impulsive. Just hang him.

    There is no present justification for what "they" did. But "they" had different rules.

    Last time I was out there, there was a joke. Wyoming and Nebraska were to join. That way, Nebraska gets a national park and Wyoming gets a football team. HeeHee.

    Not a nice try, Wyoming and Nebraska are not southern. You are right, they are not northern either but western. If you really want to go into who had more lynching the south or the rest of the US combined pissing contest... you will lose and lose badly.

    If your argument is that there were dirtbags nationwide you would be right.

    When the fraction of a racial minority was tiny the race was no threat to the political or economic power of the majority. That's why there were comparatively fewer lynchings in the Northern states, not because Yankees were morally superior.

    Consider the experience of the Chinese in California.

    After completion of the transcontinental railroad whites turned hostile to the Chinese remaining behind. In 1871 fifteen were lynched in Los Angeles alone. California prevailed upon the Federal government to restrict Chinese immigration well into the twentieth century. The state had its own laws discriminating against Asians and did not ratify the 14th Amendment until 1959.

    That's all I am saying. If you are going to bring stuff up, bring it all up.
