Come get your nigger now

So said some righteous White men back in 1906 when this country was still belonged to them. It was a taunt to the United States Supreme Court, knowing that they had just presented that supposedly august tribunal with some facts on the ground.

A negro in the ground.

And there wasn't damned thing anyone could do about it.

Now the Supreme Court totally dictates to the White man, works assiduously against his interests, and there's little we can do short of a shooting war.

That represents a sea change.

All around us statues of White heroes come tumbling down, are vandalized, sprayed with red paint, decapitated, have ropes put around their necks, and tossed are like garbage into lakes. In their steads up go statues of criminal negros. And if anyone so much as touches the nappy hair on the head of those things the full might and main of the American government would fall down on their heads.

Whenever in the past statues have come down it meant a regime change. I'm a simple man so I assume a regime change has occurred right now. But in the past those regime changes were occasioned by an all our civil war or a King got beheaded. Yet no military conquest and no plague of unknown diseases have reached our shores. None of that has occurred so what gives? It's because the brain dead say America is an idea; and this was a regime change fomented by an idea. It was not fought with horses or crossbows or heroic armored men or tanks or ordnance or guillotines; it was fought with words on paper. Our ruling elites have gone from the right side to the dark side; just look at a book called A People's History Of The Unites States, written by a slimy Jew from Brooklyn. This book teaches the child-like doctrine that all American History was a long train of unmitigated evil and that the red, black, brown and yellow man were noble human beings yearning under the yoke of White oppression. When published in 1980 the book certainly had it adherents among clueless educators but it was far outside the mainstream. But soon enough it began to be taught in American High Schools and by 2020 the ideology of the book had become the ideology of America, despite what some pointless and nostalgic Republicans say. It was regime change, a coup by an idea, as the vicious poison of the tyranny of guilt and recrimination slowly won over a preponderance of our squalid elites.

It was a regime change without a shot being fired; it was stealthy but deadly all the same.

And in 2020 it was fully manifested. And it won't be long before when deadbeat niggers like George Floyd pass fake twenties they'll be passing Tubmans.

What White man will dare question the authenticity of a Tubman given to them by a black man?

That might be crime in itself. The crime of being discourteous to a negro.

And in a post White future that will not do.

***

Now the calamity has happened, a black man who raped a White woman, and the negro lawyers who represented him have a statue of them installed (September 19 2021). And in the heart of the Confederacy no less. The "solemn" occasion was marked by a formal ceremony with musical numbers by something called Tee Bumpass (which sounds to me like what those twerking fat black chicks do when they get a little liquor in them), a welcoming and apology speech by the Chattanooga Mayor, and a keynote speech by the always obnoxious Eddie Glaude, who left the hallowed precincts of Princeton to travel South to cast blood libel on White people. Also played was a lachrymose song called "Strange Fruit" (pastoral scene from the gallant South/smell of burning flesh) by criminal drug addict and unstoppable booze hound Elenora Fagan, who went by the fake name Billie Holiday. All in all it was an orgy of nigger loving and surely the smell of sulfur permeated the event.

Smell a lot like regime change to me.

Way back in 1906 a nigger named Ed Johnson raped a White woman named Nevada Taylor. Admittedly it was dark and all them negros look the same and the rapist likely wasn't smiling so it might have been hard to see him, particularly because the black fiend snuck up behind her. But at trial Ms. Taylor said she believed it was Johnson who committed the foul act of racial pollution and crime against nature and that was good enough for twelve upstanding White men at the time. And it's good enough for me.

Case closed, right? Oh, not on your life. That simple tale of pure justice runs afoul of the current right think of the powers-that-are.

And it will not do.

In the event it wasn't all that long before the racial defiler was strung up from a bridge after a hail of bullets was lodged in his head.

Come get your nigger now.

White Justice is sweet and it is beautiful.

It' how to win a race war.

McCallie Prep School in Chattanooga, Tennessee was founded in 1905. The school did not admit the first black student until 1970, and that was the beginning of the end. The school's website shows a black and white student working together, side by like ebony and ivory on Paul McCartney's piano. More sinister sights are rarely seen.

Apparently T.H. McCallie was one of those nigger lovers, and according to the people who run this prep school now when Ed Johnson committed unnatural and vicious interracial rape against an innocent White women, the unspeakable McCallie tried to prevent Johnson from getting his just desserts in the form of bullets to his head, and even went so far as to offer shelter to one of Johnson's legal mouthpieces on the campus where that black and white child now rub elbows in the fetid swamp they call a school. Given that McCallie Prep School is now their hallowed ground we will raze all the buildings and salt the ground over once our estimable judges have pronounced sentence.

“As you walk to the Dining Hall today, or back to your dorms, or elsewhere, I want you to reflect on what a historic, brave, honorable event took place on the very ground upon which we trod,”

The headmaster who is pouring insane filth into the minds of these youngsters then told them to contemplate that negro rapist when they worked on the school's "Moving Together As Brothers" initiative, a program designed to rob the White students at the school of their will to survive.

“How can we honor the dignity of every individual, regardless of the color of their skin, or their nationality, or their religious beliefs, or their sexual orientation? What can you do in your daily lives to let everyone know that you honor them for who they are and that you will work each day to promote brotherly unity with everyone and resist the hate of division?”

At McCallie Prep School they pay top dollar for this drivel, an average of $58,350 per year to reside on site, while day students pay $30,640 per year.

If that money went down a rat hole it would have been better spent. As it is White parents pay big bucks to have their children led to the slaughter

Shame on them

"In 1906 Ed Johnson, a Black man, was wrongly accused of raping a White woman and sentenced to death. His attorneys appealed to the Supreme Court, which stayed his execution. But a bloodthirsty mob dragged Johnson from his jail cell and hanged him from the bridge."

That's the lying propaganda you heard in the news the last couple of days. Of course like all lies in Jew saturated media it has no grounding in fact. What really happened was that a black man by the name of Ed Johnson was accused of raping a White woman, was duly and legally put on trial, found guilty, and sentenced to death. Then a Supreme Court judge tried to delay justice, and some White men said to hell with that noise, and taking matters into their own just hands offed the rapist in a coup de main.

That is the proper jurisdiction was going to legally execute him by the book, all according to Hoyle, all the i's correctly dotted and the t's rightly crossed, right in tune with those democratic norms we hear so much about these days, but then a soft hearted jurist in the far away town of Washington DC decided to meddle and poke his dirty fingers in what was none of his business, and the local Whites refused to back down.

That's how you win your race wars. How man divisions does the Supreme Court have after all?

Come and get your nigger now.

"The Supreme Court for the first time in its existence, first time ever, intervened in a state criminal prosecution. No one thought that was gonna happen," said U.S. District Court Judge Curtis Collier.

No one thought that the Supreme Court would grant full legal equality to negros either. In fact it was negro citizenship which spurred John Wilkes Booth to pull the righteous trigger.

But here we are.

"On March 19, 1906 a young African American man named Ed Johnson was murdered by a lynch mob in his home town of Chattanooga, Tennessee. He had been sentenced to death for the rape of Nevada Taylor, but Justice John Marshall Harlan of the United States Supreme Court had issued a stay of execution. To prevent delay or avoidance of execution, a mob broke into the jail where Johnson was held and lynched him."

You're damned right they did. What were they going to do, wait around for the "respectable" people to gum up the works? We've seen in the time since how perverted our justice system is, and when those White men back then saw a glimpse of that, they said: not on our watch.

***

Just prior to the interracial rape in Chattanooga, Tennessee feral blacks all across the area went on a crime spree. Yellow-eyed negros committed rape, robbery, and assaults on White people; a dark savage even murdered a constable on Christmas Day. He said it was in self-defense but you know how those niggers lie.

Of course no statues of that constable are going up in Chattanooga now. He's a part of the bad old past they want to bury fathoms deep.

Naturally the good White folk of Chattanooga were up in arms about all these black atrocities and were in no mood to countenance further depredation form their social and biological inferiors. Rather, they were in a fighting mood, a mood which comes naturally and easily to a healthy people who see a mortal threat to their community, and have not undergone decades of indoctrination and brainwashing designed to convince them that such instincts are evil.

"The Ed Johnson case occurred within this atmosphere of heightened racial fear. On January 23, 1906, Nevada Taylor was attacked while walking home from a streetcar stop to the cottage at the Chattanooga Forest Hills Cemetery, which she shared with her father, the cemetery's caretaker. She lost consciousness during the attack, and afterwards could remember little beyond the fact that her assailant had been a black man who approached her from behind and wrapped a leather strap around her neck. A doctor who examined her shortly after the attack determined that she had been sexually assaulted."

She remembered that it was Ed Johnson who did it. Much is made that she could not "swear" that he did it. But she said clearly that she believed he did it. That was good enough for those twelve White men, and it's good enough for me. The sworn testimony of one White woman is worth that of a pack of negros.

You know how they lie.

***

The story is that Johnson was arrested due to the fact that he was seen near a streetcar stop holding a leather strap on the evening of the attack.

Nevada Taylor had been raped while walking home from a streetcar stop and the rapist had a leather strap he wrapped around her neck.

Such were the high fevers of White pride at the time that when Ed Johnson was arrested some 1500 White people surrounded the prison intent on on the spot justice; it surely would have saved some time and sent a message. But the authorities reasoned with them and go them to disperse.

Sound like a model or restraint to me.

After Johnson was indicted the authorities transferred him to Nashville for safekeeping. When he was brought back to Chattanooga for trial once again the Whites of the town sought their own justice; once again they were deterred.

Soon their patience would be exhausted.

When Johnson was found guilty as charged by those duly installed twelve White men on February 6, 1906 the date of death was slated for March 13, 1906.

No Jew lawyers back then to haggle and barter and plead and wheel and deal interminably to delay death decades at a time if it even comes at all as happens in our degraded system.

No Jew lawyers--imagine that.

Then the baroque and byzantine legal labyrinth with which we are so familiar undercut proper justice.

In our degraded age of negro equality and negro citizenship and negro civil rights the Federal Government routinely big foots the states, or the cities, usually White states and White cities. The Jewish Leviathan in Washington DC under the auspices of something with the truly sinister name of the "Civil Rights Division" of the Justice Department oversees voting in the States, they infringe on Police Departments, and if a local verdict doesn't go their way they swoop in to get it "right." That's how they got those officers who put massive cans of whoop-ass on depraved drug addict and motor vehicular danger Rodney King. In the Federal Trial which gave the officers prison sentences they were convicted of violating King's civil rights, whatever those are.

In the second Rodney King trial the judge acknowledged that the two trials did not legally constitute double jeopardy, but raised "the specter of unfairness."

No, it was double jeopardy, that's as plains as the hooked nose on a Jew's face--of course it was. But what is the law when Jews make it for negros? Not much, sir. The specter of unfairness is the least of it, it's a two track system where blacks are up and Whites are down and Jews crow and cackle.

And in addition to the specter of fresh riots and looting the specter of Jew Merrick Garland and his Jew lawyers from Justice breathing down the necks of the city of Minneapolis and swarming like a clouds of locusts surely had an influence on the trial of one Derek Chauvin.

But in saner times, before democracy had died by darkies, the local Whites in America were sovereign and ruled their own roosts. Which is why the Supreme Court intervention in the case of miscegenating interracial rapist Ed (damn that White woman fine) Johnson was so startling to the people at the time.

This move was highly unusual, since federal courts were traditionally held to have no jurisdiction over state criminal proceedings.

"Johnson's lawyer Parden then traveled to Washington D.C. where he met with U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Marshall Harlan. Harlan agreed to have the Supreme Court hear the appeal, and ordered a stay of execution."

When wind of this judicial pilfering and perfidy hit the fan in Chattanooga the authorities didn't stand a chance. The patience of White people has a limit, something our rulers are sure to learn soon enough to their eternal dismay.

The prison where Johnson was held was lightly guarded but still the avenging Angels had to use an ax and a sledgehammer to break through three doors. It took them nearly three hours to do this, but when the virtue of White Southern Womanhood is on the line a man will consider time and effort no obstacle.

"They then took Johnson to the nearby Walnut Street Bridge and hanged him with a rope hung over a beam. After Johnson had been hanging for over two minutes they began shooting him. He was hit by over fifty bullets. One bullet severed the rope, and Johnson fell to the ground. When Johnson moved one man placed a revolver against Johnson's head and fired five additional shots."

"The measure was to act as a deterrent to the city's blacks who resided on the opposite side of the bridge and who crossed it daily to go to and from their jobs in the downtown Chattanooga area."

In order to discourage the others.

Teddy Roosevelt is often lauded as a White Supremacist, and he certainly was on intimate terms with Madison Grant and his cohort, and certainly warned of White Race Suicide and heralded the Teutonic origins of the races that conquered North America. But he was also an insidious American exceptionalist in the contemporary sense; he loved the play The Melting Pot, he invited a Negro to the White House; his sins against us are legion.

"Following the murder, President Theodore Roosevelt made it his goal to have the members of the mob put in jail by getting the Secret Service in on the investigation."

The Feds hunting Whites has a long and dishonorable pedigree in this country.

Johnson was the second African American to be lynched on Walnut Street Bridge. Alfred Blount was the first, thirteen years earlier, in 1893.

Beautiful fruit.

As statues of Johnson and the attorneys who defended him were unveiled Sunday (September 19 2021) Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly issued a formal apology, inspiring a standing ovation.

"It was a gross injustice," Kelly said of why it's important to talk about what happened 115 years ago. "I think this process of reconciliation is really critically important for the city."

In related news about this notorious monster:

"Mayor Tim Kelly, the Chamber of Commerce, and a variety of local CEO's announced their new CEO Pledge for Racial Equity at a press conference on Thursday. The mayor and other business leaders present pledged they will make a commitment to increasing diversity both in the workplace and in the community as a whole."

"Chattanooga native Ed Johnson has been memorialized in the city where he was born and killed over a century after being lynched by a mob following his historic trial."

"Johnson’s life was taken on the Walnut Street Bridge in 1906, and on Sunday, Sept. 19, he, along with the Black attorneys that defended him, were immortalized in statue form at the very same location."

Immortalized? Not so fast. History has man cunning passages, the Saxons wrath awakening being the most stunning. What goes up can always come down, and what comes around goes around. It's in the nature of things. If the last few years has taught us anything it has taught us that.

The memorial service was attended by Mayor Tim Kelly, who opened the dedication with a welcome and a “long, long overdue” apology.

White man on his knees groveling to negros. Typical of our times.

Kelly said, “115 years ago in this city and in this place, a miscarriage of justice and a horrific act of violence set into motion a historic series of events that would make its way to the Supreme Court and set a landmark precedent for civil rights cases across the country.”

Oh, this case was a blueprint for the future. Getting the long arm of the federal law's fingers in every pie on behalf of the Golden Calf of the negros. When it comes to keeping Whites in check and protecting the uber-protected class called blacks there is nowhere the King's Writ doesn't run.
You think a man's home is his castle? Hell, soon negros will own it.

“The lynching of Ed Johnson was a terrible but essential chapter in Chattanooga’s history and a chapter that for too long has been downplayed and dismissed,” he added, before reading a proclamation apologizing “to Mr. Ed Johnson for the miscarriage of justice that occurred on March 19, 1906.”

Why, he might as well have unfastened his pants and pissed all over Nevada' Taylor's grave. Democracy in the from of laws and legitimate legal proceedings just died in darkness.

Never forget---never forgive.

As the Ed Johnson Memorial Dedication kicks off Mayor Tim Kelly offered a welcome address and an apology. Mayor Kelly stated that this is long long overdue and that the city failed Ed Johnson.”

It was a city that gave Ed Johnson what he richly deserved. A one way ticket on a bullet train bound for hell.

Eddie Glaude is that supercilious uppity black man with the problem glasses who thinks he's Malcom X but is in fact the poor man's and cut rate and second string Urkel who you can see damn near every day talking to Nicole Wallace on PMSNBC telling her how her race is the sole evil of history as she nods her head gravely and pleases her Jew masters who allow her to thrive and prosper on the broken back of her people.

This Affirmative Action Jackson case once opined from the halls of Princeton which used to be sacred:

“Social scientists were already writing that what was driving the tea party were anxieties about demographic shifts. That the country was changing, that they were seeing these racially ambiguous babies on Cheerios commercials, that the country wasn’t quite feeling like it was a white nation anymore.”

Social Scientists is like globalist or international cliques: a code word for Jews.

Glaude was at the ceremony of the unveiling of the Johnson statue, the primary function of which was to ensure that Whites never again have that kind of can so spirit in the name of themselves, but also to rape Nevada Taylor all over again.

"Eddie Glaude Jr. gave the keynote speech, acknowledging the tragedy while reminding attendees that this is one small step forward for a much larger issue. He said 'it is rare in these trying times that communities come together to recognize a profound wrong, a wrong that haunts'”

In the old days this guy would have been the nigger in the woodpile. Now he's a Stowe Prize winner and the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, where he is also the Chair of the Center for African American Studies and the Chair of the Department of African American Studies.

African American Studies is a "discipline" which explores black history and posits that they were Kangz and celebrates the black experience. Whiteness studies on the other hand excoriates White people and rationalizes their disappearance from the face of the earth.

“America will not change and Chattanooga will not change until it re-examines itself and discovers what it truly means by the words, democracy, and freedom,” noted Dr. Glaude, “and that we understand both words as practices and not as ends.”

We shit on freedom. We shit on Jewish democracy.

In this wicked world we live in there has existed for a while something called The Ed Johnson Project.

Apparently just as naive and benighted Christians walk in the shadow of their savior along the Via Dolorosa ("the way of suffering") so too can tamed Whites walk in the loose shoes of Ed Johnson as he made his way humbly and meekly to underserved fame and martyrdom.

"Our self-guided walking tour takes you through the streets of Chattanooga, Tennessee in the footsteps of Ed Johnson. From the Forest Hills Cemetery where the alleged crime took place to the Walnut Street Bridge where Ed took his last steps, learn what happened to Ed Johnson."

This is sacred ground son. Ground where a rapist once trod. Walk a little humbly and meekly yourselves, lest you be discourteous to a negro.

Of the newly installed abomination of the statue it is said:

"To promote racial healing and reconciliation in Chattanooga by creating a permanent memorial which acknowledges the lynching of Ed Johnson, honors the courageous work of the attorneys and others who stood up for equal justice, and recognizes the resulting United States Supreme Court case that established federal oversight of state level civil rights issues then and now."

The case of Ed Johnson unleased the Federal Behemoth on an unsuspecting nations. Why for many decades after White people continued to erroneously believes the nation belong to them and their children.

"At the heart of this effort is the creation of a physical space to remember a tragic but heroic Chattanooga story."

This reflective memorial recognizes Ed Johnson, his brutal death and sacrifice, honors the heroic and historic efforts of Noah Parden, Styles Hutchins and the African-American community that supported them, and commemorates the landmark Supreme Court case that changed the course of American history and civil rights. The memorial is a welcoming, contemplative space at the south side to the Walnut Street Bridge where people of all backgrounds and cultures can come to learn, reflect, mourn and find inspiration."

The family of Nevada Taylor was not heard from in the matter. Her memory is buried.

"The memorial is located in the metaphorical and literal heart of the Chattanooga community, where thousands of tourists and locals of every culture live, work and play. Utilizing creative place making practices, the design will engage the local community and tell the historical narrative of this event through art, inscriptions and a story wall. It will draw people into the space and expand the public’s understanding of both the story and its significance in the fight for civil rights and justice."

James Meadows specializes in simplistic depictions of negroes in which he tries to exalt them into long suffering heroes. They are supposed to be "noble and stoic" but what they really do is betray the mediocrity of the sculptor. But in our day and age having such banal artistic talent is no impediment to shooting to the top of our cultural firmament. He's black and he can at least can produce figures. Soon he'll get the tap to start working on the non-descript and generic George Floyd statue with the oversized lips and the glassy look in its eyes slated to replace the Washington Monument on the mall after it is razed, its constituent parts ground into dust which will be then be dispersed in an unknown location so that it never will become an alternate shrine.

Apparently in Portsmouth, New Hampshire they used to dump dead negroes in the ground; later the land was paved over and the negro bones beneath were deservedly forgotten. Apparently for some reason some people remembered that some darkies were buried near there and in 2000 a flimsy sign was put up along something called Black Heritage Trail. But then just like they found those pathetic indigenous tots in Canada and the whole country and world went berserk in a delirious fit of masochistic rage, in 2003 some city contractor was doing real work (trying to dig a manhole) and accidentally dug up some coffins which contained the long dead negros. Instead of simply tossing them on the garbage heap of history and having done with it the City Fathers had to get very serious and contemplative about the sacred nature of the find; so of course they set up a Commission which in turn commissioned James Meadows to work up a cultural site, a guy who seventy years ago would have been shining your shoes with a friendly wink and a tooth filled smile. Meadows then came up with one of those "sculpture gardens" as part of the African Burying Ground Memorial Park, a project which set back the poor people of Portsmouth to the tune of a cool 1.1 million. If all that seems little high and mighty for some dead niggers you'd be right. And James Meadows has honored these nonentities with sculptures which all look alike in the oppressed gazes and long suffering miens. Each of the eminently forgettable figures is placed in front of a stele, which in plain old fashioned English is a plain concrete slab, the stele being the go to design for anti-White art, they being featured infamously and prominently in that wretched Holohoax Museum they have in Berlin.

Naturally when it came time to resurrect from oblivion the obscure and distant memory of rapist Ed Johnson the City Fathers had the go to negro James Meadows on their radar and he got the nod.

"In March 2018, renowned artist Jerome Meadows was chosen to create the memorial. His team includes local Chattanooga artists Roger Halligan and Jan Chenoweth and members of Ross/Fowler Landscape Architecture Urban Design & Planning. The memorial will have three, life-size bronze sculptures of Ed Johnson, Noah Parden and Styles Hutchins, as well as story walls and space for contemplation. It will include sculptures dedicated to the other three victims lynched in Hamilton County."

Contemplation being very important they say for the White man. Come and bow your head and be very very hushed. Think about the evil of your ancestors. Think about how they once dreamt of a marvelous future for your race on this continent, think of how they would do anything to secure your future. Renounce them.

"It is critical for communities across the country, including Chattanooga, to do the difficult work of unearthing and confronting our own histories of racial injustice, while exploring how that history continues to shape the present. The Community Remembrance Project shares research findings and supports community memorialization work."

These eruptions like the placing and exalting of a statue of a negro rapist over a hundred years after his death are really symptoms. It's like when old Coonman Ralph Northam pardoned those seven negro rapists in Virginia, a state whose motto has now been updated to Virginia Is For Nigger Lovers. Or when just the other day our National Cathedral in the Capitol decided to take down some art work dedicated to the confederacy and replace it with art dedicated to "racial justice." So that way our elites can laugh as they sit in the pews about how they foisted the specter of George Floyd on the populace in order to create a system in which they have total control, and total command.

These eruptions of are symptoms, symptoms of the underlying disease.

"The slain Chattanoogan was wrongly sentenced to death for the attack and rape of a white woman by an all-white jury but was granted a stay of execution by the U.S. Supreme Court, making him the first Black man to receive the ruling."

One could equally say that he was convicted by a duly empaneled jury, was sentenced to death according to all the proper procedures, and then when the Constitution was hijacked swift justice was delivered.

That's how you wage war with words.

"Ninety-four years after the lynching, in February 2000, Hamilton County Criminal Judge Doug Meyer overturned Johnson's conviction after hearing arguments that Johnson did not receive a fair trial because of the all-White jury and the judge's refusal to move the trial from Chattanooga, where there was much publicity about the case."

Meyer was a forerunner, a Coonman avant-la-lettre, a liberal maggot and pig before his time.

Just like old Coomman pardoned those seven negro rapists so did this judge toss out a properly constituted conviction based on no empirical evidence whatsoever, based only on the prevailing winds of a degraded ideology. Why, soon enough they are going to tell us it was OK for Emmett to have whistled. And now just as that negro policeman in Minneapolis had his murder conviction tossed out after he gunned down that White woman in cold blood because the spook was spooked by some loud noises, so too in the post White future every negro convicted of having perpetrated anything on a White person, rape, murder, assault, robbery, whatever, will be exonerated and pardoned summarily, posthumously or not. And Meadows or another coon sculptor will be paid handsomely to celebrate the criminals' yeoman's work in affirmatively furthering White genocide. And a White politician will show up at the ceremony to consecrate this culture work and say it's long over due that White people exit the stage of history.

"At the same time, Johnson rejected his guilt, stating the fact that the strap found at the crime scene was not his. Moreover, he claimed that he was not there at the time of the rape, and there were a great number of people who saw him, guaranteeing his alibi. The strap became the only evidence of his guilt as there were no other proofs or witnesses of the crime."

That is, he didn't do nothing.

Johnson’s last words spoken from the bridge were, “God bless you all, I am a innocent man,” which are also engraved on his tombstone.

You know how they lie

***

In 1906 Ed Johnson raped a White woman named Nevada Taylor in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A jury of twelve upstanding White men found him guilty as hell and he was scheduled to be executed in six weeks. But then Supreme Court Justice John Marshall Harlan put a "stay" on the execution. Their patience exhausted some upstanding White men took an ax and a sledgehammer and broke through a three door barrier in the jail, took Johnson out near a bridge, shot him, hung him, and then shot him some more, and then hung him from the bridge in order to discourage the others. When they were done they pinned a note on the bullet ridden corpse which read: "To Justice Harlan. Come get your nigger now."

That's how you win your race wars.

Come get your nigger now.

As for Justice Harlan if he ever responded to this message history does not record it.
