As we prepare to embark on Black History Month yet another apparent lynching has occurred in Mississippi. Ain’t a da*n thing changed. The boiling pot of racism has only been temporarily covered until its stirred.
The body of Fredrick Jermaine Carter, 26, was found Dec. 3, 2010 hanging from an oak tree in the predominately White North Greenwood area of Leflore County. The young man lived in neighboring Sunflower County, located several miles away.
Mr. Carter’s stepfather told law enforcement that he was working in the area with his stepson when Mr. Carter wandered off.
“This is 2010 and we still have Black people hanging from trees? They’re saying he hung himself but I have doubt in my mind that he actually did that. That wasn’t his character. This wasn’t a suicide, this was a homicide,” said Sunflower, Miss., Mayor Michael Pembleton, Jr. to The Final Call.
County Sheriff Ricky Banks reportedly told the media the young man had a “mental condition and a history of wandering off.” He also publicly stated that he saw no signs at the scene pointing towards it being a crime or murder.
