  •  I'm a little confused though (none)
    Did any of the folks in the Senate ever lynch anyone because of their race or for any reason whatsoever?  Did they ever express support for the practice?  Did ANY Senator ever have anything to do with lynching?  Or is this bill just about political correctness?  If it makes Republicans look bad, ok, sure, that's always welcome, but I just want to be clear about the purpose of the bill.
    •  YES... for many years... (none)
      the House of Representatives would pass anti-lynching legislation.  The U.S. Senate always blocked or killed that legislation.
