The brutal and horrific lynching of Mary Turner and her baby in 1918
 

 

In May of 1918, Hampton Smith, a 31 year old White plantation owner in Brooks County, Georgia was shot and k*lled by one of his Black workers named Sydney Johnson. Hampton Smith was known for abusing and beating his workers to the point few people in the area would work for him. To solve this labor shortage, Smith turned to the debt peonage system of the day and found a ready labor pool. He used that system by bailing people out of jail, people typically arrested for petty offenses, and having them work off their debt (the bail money) to him on his plantation. Nineteen year old Sydney Johnson, arrested for "rolling dice" and fined thirty dollars, was one such unfortunate person.

After a few days of work on Smith's plantation, and shortly after being refused his earned wages and beaten by Smith for not working while he was sick, Sidney Johnson shot and k*lled Hampton Smith. What ensued after the shooting was a mob driven manhunt for Johnson and others thought to be involved in his decision to k*ll Hampton Smith. That manhunt lasted for more than a week and resulted in the deaths of at least 13 people with some historical accounts suggesting a higher number of persons k*lled. One of the people k*lled was a woman named Mary Turner.

Thirty three year-old Mary Turner (m.n. Hattie Graham), 8 months pregnant at the time and whose husband had been k*lled in this "lynching rampage" on Sunday, May 19th, publicly objected to her husband's murder. She also had the audacity to threaten to swear out warrants for those responsible. Those "unwise remarks," as the area papers put it, enraged locals. Consequently, Mary Turner fled for her life only to be caught and taken to a place called Folsom's Bridge on the Brooks and Lowndes Counties' shared border.According to investigator Walter F. White of the NAACP, Mary Turner was tied and hung upside down by the ankles, her clothes soaked with gasoline, and burned from her body. Her belly was slit open with a knife like those used "in splitting hogs."Her "unborn babe" fell to the ground and gave "two feeble cries."Its head was crushed by a member of the mob with his heel, and the crowd shot hundreds of bullets into Turner's body. Mary Turner was cut down and buried with her child near the tree, with a whiskey bottle marking the grave. The Atlanta Constitution published an article with the subheadline: "Fury of the People Is Unrestrained

Three days after the murder of Mary Turner and her baby, three more bodies were found in the area and Sydney Johnson was k*lled in a shoot out with police on South Troup Street in Valdosta, Georgia. Once k*lled, the crowd of more than 700 people cut off his genitals and threw them into the street. A rope was then tied to his neck and his body was drug for nearly 20 miles to Campground Church in Morven, Georgia, 16 miles away. There, what remained of his body was burned. During and shortly after this chain of events it is reported that more than 500 people fled Lowndes and Brooks Counties in fear for their lives.

Why I don’t love this country and why I would never identify as a proudly American. No words to describe these savages who lived full lives and gave birth to racist sadistic mothafu*kas walking around to this day.

Most likely. And even if not them, plenty of evil has gone and currently goes unpunished because there is no magical fairy tale that will punish all evildoers and reward the good folks.

Although I understand the comfort it gives people, however false and misleading it may be. It's fake. It comforts people to think, "Oh it's okay.. they're in Heaven now" instead of knowing that black folk were relentlessly tortured, mutilated, and k*lled on a daily basis. Meanwhile the transgressors got to live out their full lives with impunity.

It just makes people feel better and less helpless and bothered by the evils of humanity. Does nothing to the reality of it all though.

Just something to make y'all feel better inside.

So what do you believe in? If nothing.... Than you're a hopeless individual with no moral, that is capable of doing anything and can't be trusted...

Blah blah blah okay my guy lol.


Do you know how many SOUTHERN slave owners, including the racist pieces sh*t discussed here, were CHRISTIAN???? I'm gonna say 100%. Praised God on Sunday and then went to lynch Mary Turner on Monday.

If Space Jesus turns out to be real and I'm called up for judgment, I'm putting hands on this n*gga for all the fu*ked up sh*t he let happen to black men, women, children, and babies because clearly this n*gga doesn't give a fu*k.

Few will agree, but this and many more is the reason why 'n*gga' will never leave my lips. 27 y.o now, been saying it all my dumbass life, but that word cannot be reclaimed and fu*k checking if someone has black in their ancestry before you 'let them say the word' ... this world gonna be too mixed for and someone gon need a full time job to verify that sh*t. Best to let that word die

This country aint sh*t, honor one another but that word just ain't it. Go to Africa, they are brothers to one another, and that not this 'n*gga' nonsense. Stay woke my people!

Americans and euros had a history of doing that. West indies were originally breaker Islands where black people were taught to fear whites. Children would be forced to watch what happened to her on a regular basis.

Sadly. These devils did worse. Can you believe it? This is why it is nearly impossible to consider the Constitution a valid/legitimate contract. Impossible.
