How do YOU define lynching?
A rope. A Black body. A pickup truck. A Black body. A bag of Skittles. A Black body.
A torched Black body. A bombed Black body. A bullet-riddled Black body.
If a Black body falls in a forest and no one but the killer(s) is around to hear it fall,
does that Black body make a sound?
In January 2017, Ben Keita, 18, Muslim, was found hanging from a tree in Lake Stevens, Washington.

The rope was tied 50 feet up the tree and K-9s dispatched to the scene did not initially find Keita’s body during earlier searches, KIRO 7 reported.
