Anti-White rhetoric from Black people has rarely if ever been followed by a lynching.

Tell that to Reginald Denny

I DID say rarely, but your magnificent eyewitness photograph of Reginald Denny's lynching convinced me.

I believe that is an artist sketch based on courtroom testimony.

Is rareity the only diffrence?

Lynching has grown more rare over the years , which sort is more common this year?

One of the early problems was Denmark Vessy and Nat Turner who planed and carryed out massicre on white persons . These terrorist incidents were small by modern standards , but everything has grown since then.

That the incident is isolated and small does not mean it doesn't matter.

If Mrs Smith wants to kill her own Kids ,she can apeal to racism and accuse the generic  black man with the crime , if Tawana Brawley wants her fifteen minutes of fame she can hoax her own molestation and blame the generic white guy. The diffrence is trivial between the motivations and the harm is huge both ways. Black racism doesn't help anythhing except white racism.

Everything has grown since then?

What, have more and more slaves been killing more and more of their masters?

One Reginald Denny is not really comparable to a century of lynchings. The Federal government refused to pass an anti-lynching law for something like seventy years.
===================================================================
And, by the way, Denny was not lynched, and is (unlike untold lynched Black people) still alive and employed as a boat mechanic.

After the trial, Denny hugged the accused's mother and others, so if we did ask him, he would almost certainly have been less snide than BT.

Of the two guys that were charged with attempted murder, one is dead, and the other won't be eligible for parole until he has served 47 years. This is pretty much what they deserved for their crimes.
