Based on the movie The Great Debaters, should lynching have been stopped in America?

  • Lynching is wrong.

    Lynching should have been stopped in America because I think its a disturbing and violent method of killing. Attacking people in mob for, hanging them, burning them at the stake, these are all practices that should not occur in America and sometimes, the lynchings were unjust and were done due to race and not true means.

  • Lynching was one of the most embarrassing periods in American history.

    Lynching should have been stopped as soon as it began. It is shameful that America freed it’s slaves
    but didn’t take the proper steps to protect the ex-slaves from an angry
    population. There is no statute of
    limitations on murder, yet the vast majority of lynchers were never brought up
    on charges for any of their crimes.
