More Lynching Surprises

 The popular conception of a Southern lynching is a black man accused of raping a white woman is dragged from the jail by enraged white men and hung.  (I suspect To Kill A Mockingbird created this stereotype.)

As I have previously mentioned, I have found black lynch mobs killing black men.  Yesterday's surprise.  White lynch mob kills black men accused of murdering a black man:

I do not claim these incidents are typical; I am hunting for mass murders and these are what I find.  Still different than I expect.
