A Modern Day Lynching… Tonight on Conversations Of A Sistah


fj_carter12-21-2010

By popular demand, I will resume last week’s subject this week…”A modern day Lynching” on “Conversations Of A Sistah” tonight. 

Lynching is murder by mob, often by hanging, but also by a burning at the stake or shooting, in order to punish an alleged transgressor, or to intimidate, control, or otherwise manipulate a specific sector of a population.

Racism in America has set the scene for many injustices since the founding fathers birthed the notion of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The killing of young black men in our society seem to be a modern day lynching however, racism has taken a seat to a more pressing problem in America: a broken justice system.

Some people might have expected to see an increase in the overt lynching and murder of Black men by white extremists under the Obama administration due to the backlash of white right-wing conservative resentment.

In the recent events taken place in Florida, the stand your ground laws ought to be called a Right to Kill for White People laws because that is precisely what they are. Self-defense means nothing when a black person asserts that right. How do black people defend themselves when the justice system is arrayed against them?

Michael Dunn, the Georgia man who shot and killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis after an argument over loud music in Jacksonville, was found guilty on 3 counts of 2nd-degree murder and 1 count of throwing a deadly missile.

But the Florida jury deadlocked on the 1st degree murder count – even after the judge ordered them to deliberate further, declared a mistrial on the 1st degree murder count.

Join me tonight at 8:00 P.M. on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” as I address many of such injustices as being Modern Day lynchings.

I will be taking your phone calls on this subject at 1-347-426-3645. Please press “1′ to speak with the host.

You can access the show at any of the links in this post.

See you on the air!

  4. Michael Dunn gets to join the Triggerman club. I don’t need to read about him or ZM. I already had to listen to his jailhouse phone calls on GMA this morning.

  5. I hate to say it, but I knew he was getting off. All you have to do is read the “Self Defense Law” in Florida. The system is designed to kill off our black men.

  6. It’s sad that yt people in Florida, they found it reasonable for him to confront, argue and then go back to his car, retrieve a weapon, shoot on CHILDREN in a public place, and NEVER call the police. But they found all of his actions (except for continuing to shoot) as “reasonable” because these kids were black. SMMFH.

  7. Some sprite had a valid point on this subject.

    She said let’s flip this: If black men were shooting and killing white teenagers and were not convicted, there would be rioting like could not believe. Why is it that nothing is being done now?

  8. I find the image disturbing just like i find it disturbing that every black male is being killed out here in the streets because of the color of their skin. so it is what it is people.
