Editor Note

Recounting the lynching of a mixed-race couple by the KKK. ""Well, I thought that the KKK was the main thing, and that they was the finest people out, that they kept down crime and all these things. But later on I found out that they just hung people and destroyed people and it's nothing more than a racket just like a lot of other things.""
