[size=9]After viewing the video, I went through a moment of reflection. My thoughts went to the words spoken, of the truths told, and the reality that does not attract the attention it deserves. What was done is in the past, and thankfully, even in the areas where such crimes were worst, tolerance for humans of another race has greatly increased. But such tolerance does not allow us to turn a blind eye to such a marring black spot on the past. I was offended, disgusted, and... empty, after viewing the video.

A picture that caught me is the number four photo of Bennie Simmons. Drenched in oil and burned while still alive. Feeling himself wasting away to flames. In my opinion, one of the worst ways to die; a way of excruciating pain, yet being able to think while it happens, realizing you're going to die. There is no mercy in it. We are all the same inside. Our hearts keep our blood flowing. Our lungs let us breathe. Children are born by women, not men, and both black and white people pull up their pants one leg at a time in the morning. No one deserves to die, let alone a death such as burning. I won't forget about the lynchings that occurred; I won't forget what some white people did.[/size]
