someone linked your site to a bulletin board so i could try and gain a perspective about why there is so much emotion between the black and white issues in the USA

the movie was well presented and clear

the topic is certainly thought provoking, i am feeling silent as i try to understand why gangs of people would stand around a lynching as if it were the entertainment for the crowd

that there were postcards made of the deceased person just hanging there too is distressing, but i think it is something that is still carried on but in different ways in your country

i have heard of car chases that are shown on tv like they are entertainment, when there has been beheadings of hostages by terrorists i have seen people flock to web sites to see the film that was made of it, and when a disaster happens the news shows it over and over and over 24/7

perhaps it is just human nature... we get an andrenalin rush at seeing the misfortune of others

i wonder how many people are going to come and view this film with the intention of learning and understanding and how many will use it more entertainment value

thank you for the work you have done on the collection, i will bookmark it so i can see how it progresses

have invaluable information when you clickmore information

i didn't realise that it wasn't just blacks that were lynched, that immigrants and other white people faced the same fate

i also didnt realise that the lynchings were unlawful, mobs that took the law into their own hands

it is certainly an interesting history lesson
