    I was not aware of "The Lesson of the Hour: Why Is The Negro Lynched" and its relationship to the 1892 Columbian Exposition.

    These words leaped out: "When a white man steals, robs or murders, his crime is visited upon his own alone. But not so with the black man. When he commits a crime the whole race is made to suffer. "

    So true even in 2013.

    "Don't believe everything you think."
