Lynching

I saw the exchange with Ms. Malveaux, and your post reminded me of something. Not that it will come up again, but professional grudge-holders like her forget — or never knew — that the Klan didn’t lynch only blacks.

My great-grandfather’s memoirs have several pages of harrowing tales of being hunted by Klansmen in the 1890s while in South Carolina as a Mormon missionary.

(They weren’t just crazy about Jews, etiher, but at least your people had the good sense not to be out walking from farm to farm proclaiming your allegiance to the church of polygamists.)
