So here's what has me all up in arms:
Seven U.S. presidents have asked Congress to end lynching. The House passed three laws to do so, but Southern senators filibustered each one. In a country that has never formally apologized for slavery, the Senate resolution stands as Congress' only apology for an injustice done to thousands of African-Americans.Let me get this straight. Senators are pissed off because their colleagues use the filibuster to hold up judicial nominees, but they don't care that Senators have filibustered laws to make lynching against the federal law! What kind of shit is that?
I want the names of every single Senator that has filibustered against lynching laws. If any of them are still in the Senate, I think somebody ought to take them out behind the woodshed.
