41. Again, sorry no.

I am a middle age white lady and images of black people being lynched leave me horrified and I don't buy your argument about having to "face my privilege and racism." Many years ago I read a book called, "Without Sanctuary." It was a devastating account of the lynching that took place in this country. The photos and essays still haunt me. To think about that going on in this country and the absolute terror those poor people felt knowing what was about to happen to them with no ability to escape. I'm sorry but I don't feel that I have to be black to be repulsed by any image of any person being "lynched." And using a child to boot. It is simply just too much.
