Stop dividing America with words evoking racial terror

"Lynching" is a word that should be discarded from political discourse, especially throughout the South where thousands died from racial terror after the Civil War.

President Trump, now under intense scrutiny in a growing impeachment inquiry by the U.S. House of Representatives, tweeted in a diatribe in the wee hours of Oct. 22 that "All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here a lynching."

No, Mr. President. You're wrong. You are not being lynched. You are not being physically ripped from the White House, bundled up in ropes and taken by a mob for execution by shooting, hanging, burning, or something as horrible.

What is happening, sir, is that you are facing the very process you deny is happening due process required by the Constitution to investigate whether you and your administration violated the law in discussions with a foreign country. For the U.S. House Democrats and Republicans to do less is for them to abrogate their sworn duty.
