Slocum, TX

I wonder how the descendants of the hundred or so Black people massacred in Slocum feel about this latest shooting being called the worst in Texas history.

1. "about 200 were killed,


and that a cover-up began not long after the shooting stopped - a cover-up that has continued for decades."


I have never heard about this massacre and I am a Native Texan.

Thx for posting this important post, Geechie

2. 200!

Unreal .. the massacres of other-than-white people keep getting swept under the rug.
