Response to sinkingfeeling (Original post)

13. There were several large white led mob massacres in 1919. There was also one in Springfield

Illinois in 1908. But 1919 was the worst year. It was known as the red summer.

The movie Birth of a Nation had been released a few years prior which I believe had something to do with the resurgence of antiblack racist mob violence.
