Jim Crow: The Old is the New
They sent a lynch mob. Eight officers cloaked in blue uniforms and other garb. The rope already hung before the charges were brought. The court date set for the hanging of a well-lived life, a hard-earned career. Deep south like, but Chicago style this time. The line quickly formed with people from the town and colleagues. They were thirsty for blood; there had not been a lynching in some time. Lead prosecutor Anderson rallied the crowd.
After the acquittal, that big power elite managing partner stood up all proud and uttered, innocent until proven guilty is a criminal standard!
NO evidence whatsoever was collected from the supposed crime scene, no witnesses questioned. But, you don’t need all that for a 21st Century American lynching you see. All you need is a Nigga, a rope, and a tree!
