This new lynching memorial rewrites American history

More than 4,000 black men, women, and children died at the hands of white mobs between 1877 and 1950. Can you name any of them? This memorial in Montgomery, Alabama, is trying to change that. https://cnn.it/2uYVbQj

During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder.

Keeping those old wounds open. Funny how the side that says we need to eliminate racism is the side that continues to bring up the worst of our history instead of focusing on the positive and the accomplishments that we've actually made.. Let's be honest. Racism is too highly profitable for those who race bait and constantly need your "money" to combat racism.. Why eliminate the problem when you can treat it for life.. Why come hand in hand when the media wants us fist to fist.. Manipulation and Exploitation. That's the Liberal way.

I thought that was what the Confederate statues did, yet they tore them down. Trying to eradicate history. But here, they are doing the very same thing in reminding people of our past. Why is this right, yet our Confederate statues are wrong? Don't they both say "Never Again?" I think if we allow one story to be told, we need to allow the other story to be told. It's either yes to this and our monuments, or no to both.

I have a question for the Trump supporters. When you guys say let's make America great again, is this the time period that you are referring to?

Many of the people I keep seeing absolutely against this memorial are the same people absolutely in favor of keeping Confederate Monuments. Funny how that is acceptable; keeping pretty statues that make traitors look like heroes, but memorials to their victims is insulting and problematic.🤔😒 If you are triggered by this, you need to really do some soul searching.

Discussing post-war racial violence isn't "race baiting". It's necessary to ensure these tragedies don't happen again and to remember the history, however unsavory it may seem to those who would rather ignore the past. Good job to the folks putting up this memorial.

How about erecting a memorial on the door steps of Planned Parenthood in honor of the millions of black babies that have been systematically butchered at the hands of the Planned Parenthood mob?!

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this comment section will be a seething pit of conservative man-baby rage in the next few minutes.

This is the kind of memorials that we need, not some statue of a glorified confederate traitor on a horse. This is the truth and people need to see it.

We need physical markers to jar us from our complacency; to make us pause and consider how the torture and murder of human beings could have been carried forth in a carnival atmosphere in front of crowds of hundreds. I hope these markers will cause people to pause and ask themselves the really hard questions, including "what makes me different than the people that stood in those crowds and watched?" and "what am I doing to make an impact on continuing racial inequality in this country?”

Here come the angry supporters of the Giant Cheeto to claim nobody should be talking about this.

Powerful memorials for all these victims. Would love to see this done for Native Americans too. So many senseless murders in history and all their stories should be told before history revises them.

A very bad chapter in our history. I don't want it repeated. Our so called president thinks the type of people that did this are "very fine people". Vote out trump and everyone that thinks like him.

Wow. Reading these comments tells me just how crucially necessary this museum and memorial really is. We have so much work to do on reconciliation it’s overwhelming, but I, for one, wish to be on the right side of history, not stubbornly clinging to the past and perpetuating more hatred. Very proud of Bryan Stevenson and EJI for this much needed project.

There were many more that there are no records of... We are always told to never forget the Holocaust but that we should move past slavery and lynchings

Yet, no one complains about 911 Memorials. Never forget until it someone or something that makes you feel guilty. If there’s no guilt, why complain about the discussion?

It’s never a good idea to hide history. I believe that we need to discuss and have memorials that will teach us what happened. As a European I know that very well. We have had a bloody history. I believe that with knowledge comes the desire to do better and move on as a human race.

Words cannot express how much I admire this man. I am appalled at the photos of hundreds, thousands of people attending these lynchings and having a great time. Children having a good time. My God. These children are still alive today, most probably taught their children the same and today we are looking at the consequences. I still have hope. I hope we all take 1 second to realize we all bleed the same, we all hang the same and burn alive the same. While not a fan of organized religion, I have to stop and pray we acknowledge the past and realize it is so close to our present. May God have some mercy on our souls.

Far more relevant than those Confederate monuments. I watched the report on this last night on 60 minutes. If this doesn't strike at a person's soul, then they have none.

As a black man I feel posts like this fuel hatred. They are really unnecessary at this time. A lot of white people have also been good to blacks. William Wilberforce, Abraham Lincoln.... The Union soldiers during the American civil war who fought to end slavery. Let's celebrate people's goodness and not try to light the flame of hatred at any given opportunity.

You can see that too this day most white people find it offensive to talk about their dark history. Forget those affected by it. They want to be coddled for what their ancestors done and vilify those that went through it. By these comments the mindset of that time is still active in their minds today. Anything about black suffering is secondary because they don't have feelings or experience pain. Remember we are 3/5 human to them. Smh

When we hear about the Holocaust, we don't degrade their stories or ask why we don't honor the Nazis, we don't tell them to forget about it, we don't speak out against honoring the victims and survivors, but yet, for some reason, when we try to honor the victims of slavery and racism in America, so many people complain about it! That's how we know we still have a problem...

Funny that some people (mostly white people, especially in the south) have issues with discussing this and making a monument to it and says it does us no good to dwell on the past. However the same people see no problem with confederate monuments and can't get over the fact that Confederates lost the war, confederates fought their own country, and their goal was to preserve slavery. History is not pretty but we must not sanitize History and make it all feel good. We have to tell the whole story. We must take the good with the bad.

When the matter comes to be about America's past, slavery and the American Indians, we'll be sure to see the racists with their deflections, denials, and what about's. They like their hero Trump, who exhibits the exact same belief system. The best that can be done is to keep pushing back and throw it in their faces each and every time. When I was a youth in school, they refused to teach anything that dared to besmirch the WASP view of America's history. Slowly, sometimes painfully, the true American history was dragged out of the back of the closet, and seen for the first time. There is a lot of good, but without acknowledging the bad, and the boring(there was also a lot of that too) :-) , America's history will not be complete nor honest.

We still have a lot of changing to do. And growing. I think the Native Americans need something like this all across America. What the white people did to them was equally horrifying and unbelievable. The history books are not telling the real truth and the real truth needs to be told..
