James Byrd Junior

Less than a decade ago on this date a man was killed in a macabre publicity stunt for a gang with suspected ties to the Ku Klux Klan. He was attacked by three white men, his throat was cut and then he was dragged more than two miles down a country road. While his body was dragged his head, genitals, and a large amoung of skin came off. The rest of his body was left in front of a black church. Yesterday we remembered D-Day and those who fought, today we recall a father killed over skin color.
