Re: “History of lynching: Arkansas lands atop another bad list

Read Robert Whitaker's excellent book on the Phillips County Race Massacre " On The Laps Of God". He estimates the total of blacks killed near the 200 mark. Using the racist newspapers reports of how many were killed is ridiculous- these were the same papers that repeatedly reported that there was a "negro plot" to kill all the whites, and refused to denounce the torture used against the black defendants in the following trials to gain confessions to said plot.
