Mary Turner 1918 Eight Months Pregnant

Mobs lynched Mary Turner on May 17, 1918 in Lowndes County. Georgia
because she vowed to have those responsible for killing her husband
arrested. Her husband was arrested in connection with the shooting and
killing Hampton Smith, a white farmer for whom the couple had worked,
and wounding his wife. Sidney Johnson. a Black, apparently killed Smith
because he was tired of the farmer’s abuse. Unable to find Johnson. the
killers lynched eight other Blacks Including Hayes Turner and his wife
Mary. The mob hanged Mary by her feet, poured gasoline and oil on her
and set fire to her body. One white man sliced her open and Mrs.
Turner’s baby tumbled to the ground with a “little cry” and the mob
stomped the baby to death and sprayed bullets into Mary Turner. (NAACP:
Thirty Years of Lynching in the U.S. 1889-1918  )






All of these stories were utterly despicable, but this one almost made me cry.

I don't see how anyone could ever possibly justify treating people this way. My heart is heavy.

ugh
My heart is so heavy.
I think at this point, I am more angry at the black people who make excuses for these monsters.

I promised myself I would cry but the more I read, I couldn't contain myself.
I will never understand what propels people to do the most inhumane, despicable things to others...
Why?

the pregnancy one did it for me, and brings me back to the stories of black baby boys used as alligator bait . Just remember the few minutes of hell on earth is nothing compared to an eternity in hell.
