During the last ten years a new statute has been added to the “unwritten law.” This statute proclaims that for certain crimes or alleged crimes no negro shall be allowed a trial: that no white woman shall be compelled to charge an assault under oath or to submit any such charge to the investigation of a court of law. The results is that many men have been put to death whose innocence was afterward established; and to-day, under this reign of the “unwritten law,” no colored man, no matter what his reputation, is safe from lynching if a white woman, no matter what her standing or motive, cares to charge him with insult or assault.

Reading this article from the May 29, 2018 edition of The Final Call, has me motivated me to make sure my daughter is more technologically advanced. We must do better and hold our youth to a high standard and teach them to create their own lane.
