A black man lynched in Paris, Texas. Mr Brandon Mc Clelland was murdered 1 month ago althou the story did not make "National"news(Hmmmmm),he was tied to a truck by two white males he thought was his "friends,Mr Mc Clelland was dragged till his body parts was dismembered. His body was found in the middle of a busy road. The mother said it was so bad that they have to have a closed casket funeral.
In 1998 a very similar lynching took place in Jasper,Texas where James Bryd Jr was killed by a group of white males the same exact way. These small Texan towns have been known for racial division. It is reported that local law brushed off the idea it was a racial hate crime. There are some down south people who are afraid of this kind of activity,and even up north. I have heard stories like this,it is a shame how this can happen in 2008.

It's not right. Just because it's 2008 doesn't mean there aren't psycho paths still in the world. Stuff like this happens all the time. Why does murder happen at all? Doesn't matter if it was driven by racial issues or not. Most racial violent acts don't make it to the paper or news and neither does those that are not driven by racial issues.

Any act of murder is horrible enough, but to have it happen purely because of a person's race (or any other bias such as sexuality or religion) makes it even more repugnant. You would think that people could have evolved past this bigoted type of thinking by now, but sadly that's not the case.

This seriously makes me feel nauseous. Sometimes it's hard to believe it's 2008, not 1958. I hope those bastards become wet nurses in prison.
