2. Thanks, WhiskeyGrinder. I knew some of this terrorism but the excerpt...

and the article are not just eye-opening, they're eye-popping in the detail of the racial terrorism against the freedmen/women/children in the south in the years directly after the Civil War.

There were thousands of killings and destruction of property that no white, racist, terrorist was ever arrested or prosecuted for. There was not just horrendous loss of life but there was also economic loss as property and land was either destroyed and/or outright taken.

I saved the link in my favorites for further study. DU, we all need to read this. Prepared yourself for shock and infuriation.
