"Destined to decay, these few survivors...turn the living to pillars of salt."

Wonder what popular postcards portrayed in the past? Brutal murders by vigilantes. Yes, this is what people wrote on to their relatives, telling them how they're doing.

My history professor showed my class this website last month. Just terrible. I can't believe some of the injustices done in the past.

This is a subject that has never bothered me. I think it is quite amusing that photos of lynchings were used as postcards. I remember when I first came across this subject five years ago, I openly laughed in the middle of class.

Quote by from the forum of that website
So many white people view these pictures and wish that African Americans would leave such vile images in the past. If that is so I would ask that they to would denounce the American Flag, denounce the Founding Fathers, and burn the Constitution. If our history must be obliterated in order to numb the masses, than our history should not be forced to go alone. After all if you do not dismiss the entire history of America slavery will simply rear its "ugly" head again.


I think it's pretty ****ing shitty to ask them to forget about just because it makes the nation look bad. The nation deserves to look bad, because all the shit they did was bad.

No, I am not "trolling." Grow up, people have died in the past and will continue to die. Sometimes these deaths are for racial reasons, sometimes they are from "natural causes." In what way do these deaths affect you? May I add that these creatures died a century ago.

On the topic of finding the postcards amusing, do you not like to laugh? I like to laugh, it brightens the melancholic truth, that is our mortality.

I think our history needs to be acknowledged but also recognized for what it is, history. there are many countries that still lynch and stone people so although America has some brutal periods in our history i feel we as a nation have taken great strides toward ensuring they do not repeat themselves.

Some people should spend less time posing for pictures and more time straightening and cleaning their house.

What is it with ignorant morons and their propensity to add generations to how long ago slavery/lynchings/segregation was.


No, these people didn't die hundreds of years ago. A good number of the pictures are from the early decades of the 1900s.

I said a century, not centuries. I am aware of the fact that some of these pictures are only eighty years old and not one hundred years old. I wasn't giving a precise date but an estimate.

Yeah, because we really have to time to empathize with every human who has ever died. Those deaths will only phase you because it forces you to confront your own mortality.

Not only that, but lynches were common place until the 60s. And there's still a rare lynching today.

I laugh at things like the holocaust, lynchings, genocide, torture, and other examples of human brutality because I'm all pretentious and edgy.

Mhmm, and because it happened long ago, people will still die, it didn't affect us, so why should we care, right?

For reals though, Nacho is just a powerdoucher.

This.

The examples of the postcards show an interesting change in the general public's psyche in the past 100 years. It shows that something that's absolutely not acceptable now was once considered as acceptable. It should come as no surprise to us, and the further back we go, the more injustice we see being considered as acceptable.
For instance in the middle ages, old women were burned at the stake as witches and people were tortured and killed for being members of the wrong religion.

I recently watched a program about 17 skeletons that were discovered at the bottom of an old well in Norwich that date back to the 12th or 13th century, eleven of which were children aged between two and 15. It turns out they were Jewish, many were members of the same family, and more than likely the victims of persecution and ethnic cleansing.

We need examples like this to show ourselves how far we've actualy come in a humanitarian way. If it disgusts us, good, it damn well ought to.

A question to the more American crowd, when you study History do they cover topics like this and the slave trade. The stuff that puts America in a bad light, or is it swept under the carpet so to speak?
