Wrestling dummy wearing Paulsboro shirt used for lynching photo

A photo of students from a North Jersey high school depicting the lynching of a practice dummy wearing a Paulsboro wrestling T-shirt has gone viral, invoking claims of racism.

The photo was made public Monday. It shows seven young white males – most wearing Phillipsburg High School athletic attire, two with their hoods pointed – surrounding the hanged, black figure.

Bubbling beneath the cultural surface, in response to the official sanctification of black crime and racism, is a response that is going to shock the hell out of a lot of people when it finally boils over.

Am I saying that I approve? Not at all. But I’m not pretending that it doesn’t exist, either.

Thanks, Barack Obama!

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
