The lynching of Jesse Washington.Washington was beaten with shovels and bricks,was castrated, and his ears were cut off. A tree supported the iron chain that lifted him above the fire. Jesse attempted to climb up the skillet hot chain. For this, the men cut off his fingers.Jesse was 15.1916.

Who did this?

"A professional photographer took pictures as the event unfolded, providing rare imagery of a lynching in progress. The pictures were printed and sold as postcards in Waco."
they sold photographs of his body as postcards.
"After the fire was extinguished, his charred torso was dragged through the town and parts of his body were sold as souvenirs"
they sold
his
body parts

THIS IS 1916. THIS IS NOT EVEN 100 YEARS AGO. IN AMERICA. IN WACO, TEXAS. NOT JUST A FEW SICK PEOPLE; PEOPLE IN THE FUCKING TOWN BOUGHT PIECES OF HIM AS A SOUVENIR. THERE ARE PEOPLE STILL ALIVE WHO WERE ALIVE WHEN THIS HAPPENED.

everyone you’ve ever loved has said some problematic shit: a novel 

you have also said some problematic shit: the sequel

having said problematic shit does not necessarily make you or anyone else a bad person, just be aware of it, don’t say it again, and don’t make fucking excuses for people who continue to say problematic shit: the thrilling conclusion
