    I'm starting to think women should be allowed to vote. If they think they can comprehend anything beyond cooking and cleaning in their pretty little heads I'll play along.

    Sure it is, women are usually wrong about everything. Why should we have to dedicate so much time trying to teach them to look both ways before they cross the street?

    Make your own judgement and it's only the Internet.

    Cavemold's DC forum posts are usually okay. But I find his avatar disturbing so I try to avert my eyes.

    If the Tuskegee Institute is to be believed, only a single verified lynching took place in the 1950's.

    Correction: Memory played me false. The chart here seems to put the number of victims as six. There may be a couple of incidents which some consider to be lynchings, and others not.

    IIRC, the foraml legal definition of a lynching involves removing someoen from lawful custody and punishign them for an alleged crime.

    So not all lynchings need lead to a death.

    How many do you think went unverified?

    A legal definition of lynching was never codified in federal law in the period when lynching was prevalent. A number of states-none of Southern-had anti-lynching laws, but I'm not familiar with them. The Tuskegee Institute, as quoted on Wikipedia, defined lynching like this:


    "There must be legal evidence that a person was killed. That person must have met death illegally. A group of three or more persons must have participated in the killing. The group must have acted under the pretext of service to Justice, Race, or Tradition."

    I have no idea, and neither does anyone else. Lynchings had went underground by this time (killings took place in secret, victim's remains were concealed), so it is impossible to know how many may have occurred.

    So there's technically only been one?
