In class today I listened to a biography about the lynching that happened in 1930 in Maryland Indian. Three black teenagers, 19, 18 and 16 were accused of killing a white factory worker and rapping his girlfriend . They were sent to jail then forcefully taken out of jailed and hanged except for the 16 year old. There was a huge mob taking part in this lynching which fulled the mob. It started off as rumors no one was sure whether they were true or not that these three individuals committed these crimes. But someone had to pay so they blamed it on three black people.
