The lynching of Jesse Washington.Washington was beaten with shovels and bricks,was castrated, and his ears were cut off. A tree supported the iron chain that lifted him above the fire. Jesse attempted to climb up the skillet hot chain. For this, the men cut off his fingers.Jesse was 15.1916.

Who did this?

"A professional photographer took pictures as the event unfolded, providing rare imagery of a lynching in progress. The pictures were printed and sold as postcards in Waco."
they sold photographs of his body as postcards.
"After the fire was extinguished, his charred torso was dragged through the town and parts of his body were sold as souvenirs"
they sold
his
body parts
as fucking
souvenirs
tell me these people aren’t monsters

THIS IS 1916. THIS IS NOT EVEN 100 YEARS AGO. IN AMERICA. IN WACO, TEXAS. NOT JUST A FEW SICK PEOPLE; PEOPLE IN THE FUCKING TOWN BOUGHT PIECES OF HIM AS A SOUVENIR. THERE ARE PEOPLE STILL ALIVE WHO WERE ALIVE WHEN THIS HAPPENED.
YA’LL STILL FEEL BAD ABOUT THE WACO SIEGE CULT?

Smh

This is disgusting… How could they be okay with his screams? How could they go home to there families at night like nothing happened? Where’s the humanity, the compassion?

I’m not at all saying what these people did to him was right, in fact, I think the way he was killed is disgusting. He was chained over the fire for two hours! But it’s not like he was innocent. He raped and murdered a woman, and confessed to doing so. He even told police what the weapon was and where it could be found and guess what. They found it. For that he was sentenced to death by the courts. (Not by lynching though, of course)

After the all-white jury delivered its verdict
There are many folks stating that he confessed due to coercion just as many other Black folks during that time was forced to admit to a crime. He was illiterate and many sources say that he was mentally challenged.  Also 1 2 3
He did in fact sign a confession admitting guilt, but he was illiterate and he did not comprehend the language of the document 
Black people back then (and now) were none to be coerced into confessions. Many rapes and murders were done by White men but it was always easier to blame someone else. Study all of the lynchings and the race riots in the US. You will see a common theme
Side note:
By some estimates, up to 15,000 people watched the lynching
His fingers were amputated for souvenirs and his fingernails taken for keepsakes. Finally all that was left was a charred torso, but Washington’s body parts were put in a bag so they could be dragged through downtown.

This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.

if you don’t think this is fucking rad then get out of my face
