Lynching: Racist or Western?

Sen Buttars:

“Lynch mob is a Western term. You wouldn’t find one person in 10,000 in Utah that thinks that’s a racist term,”

I called three of my Republican friends yesterday to ask them if they think lynching is a racist term.

I got three answers in the affirmative.

I wonder how many yes answers I would get if I called 10,000 people in Utah.

Now these aren't your "liberal" (i.e. fairly moderate) republicans. One of them has told me he fears for my soul because I'm a Democrat. The other two hate Mexicans, Blacks, and Gays as much as Buttars does. But they still know better.

The difference is, they haven't lynched a horse theif in about 100 years, but they still lynch innocent black men.
