Defining Lynching Up. And White. And Rich.


Oh, sure, as Paul as already noted today the American Spectator published a reprehensible article as part of the Sharrod smear campaign advancing the ludicrous claim that lynching isn’t lynching on its front page. However, in fairness it must be said that this publication has not always employed such a narrow definition. Indeed, as Steve and TS note, when powerful white Republican political figures are involved, the definition of “lynching” can be broadened to include “mild criticism.”

I remain puzzled that the Republican Party has not made inroads among African-American voters.
