Comments on HR 55

Sharon Hart wrote 2 months ago

Our failure to pass an anti-lynching law in this country with its horrific history of such vigilantism is an embarrassment. We should have passed this years ago. Get it done!

Emmett Till Antilynching Act I see it as a waste of time and money because nowadays in the 21st Century NOBODY has been lynched. It would help to understand the bill by providing the correct history behind the lynchings by "whites" in the South of our country. Why isn't it mentioned that the KKK was formed by White Democrat owners of plantations who owned black peons in their cotton fields? The KKK burned the houses of black owners to scare them. This is very important but it is being hidden. The sad part is that Omar, Rush and Eshoo have not taken the time to read American History. They only pander to people of color who are mostly part of the Democrat plantation and by doing that they are lying to those voters. So, my suggestion is to ADD THAT THE WHITE OWNERS of Plantations in the South were white Democrats. This is the real truth! Carmie
