No justice in 1946 racist lynching

first_imgThe burial of George Dorsey and his sister, Dorothy Malcolm, in Bishop, Ga., in 1946.The Atlanta Journal Constitution announced in an exclusive report Dec. 28 that the FBI had “quietly closed its investigation into the murders” of two Black couples by a racist mob in 1946 at Moore’s Ford Bridge in rural Walton County, Ga. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is expected to do likewise by the end of January, with no one held accountable.Often described as the “last mass lynching” in the U.S., the vicious, preplanned killing of Roger Malcolm, Dorothy Malcolm, George Dorsey and Mae Murray Dorsey reveals the conditions of white supremacy and violence that dominated throughout the former Confederate states.The details of the case are well-known. Roger Malcolm had been involved in a physical fight with a white farmer, Barnette Hester, on July 14 and had stabbed him. Hester was taken to a hospital for treatment and Malcolm was held for 11 days in the county jail in Monroe, Ga.White landowner Loy Harrison bonded Malcolm out for $600 on July 25. The Malcolms and Dorseys were sharecroppers on Harrison’s land. Accompanied to the jail by Dorothy Malcolm and the Dorseys, Harrison then began the drive toward his farm in the late afternoon.Harrison said that when he reached the Moore’s Ford Bridge, about an hour later, his car was stopped by a band of dozens of armed men who forced the two couples out of the ­vehicle, beating them and riddling their bodies with 60 bullets at close range. Although the assailants’ faces were not covered, Harrison claimed he didn’t recognize anyone.Dorsey was a World War II veteran who had served in the Pacific. Reportedly, Dorothy Malcolm was seven months pregnant. The brutality of the murders made national news, and the Truman administration ordered the FBI to send investigators to Walton County. There was no local police investigation.Although thousands of FBI interviews over five months took place, and early attention was put on several members of the Ku Klux Klan, hostility and fear led a grand jury to indict no one. The suspects were provided alibis and no physical evidence was found.Eyewitness says cops were thereThe level of racist intimidation can be exemplified by the public beating of Lamar Howard, a Black man who testified before the grand jury that he had overheard two of the participants planning the ambush. Howard was later accosted at his job by two white men who, when arrested, admitted striking him repeatedly. Yet they were acquitted by a jury in short order.Years would pass and the killers of Roger and Dorothy Malcolm and George and Mae Murray Dorsey continued to live and thrive in Walton County.In 1968, just before he was assassinated, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. sent a young Southern Christian Leadership Conference staffer, Tyrone Brooks, to Monroe in advance of his planned visit to the town after his return from Memphis. As a teenager, King had written a letter to the Atlanta newspaper in 1946 denouncing the murders.Brooks, who went on to become an elected state representative in the Georgia House, pursued every lead in an attempt to bring justice to the families of the Malcolms and Dorseys.After decades of little new evidence, in 1991, Clinton Adams, a 55-year-old white man, told FBI agents that he and a boyhood friend had witnessed the murders while hiding behind some trees. He claimed to have seen a police vehicle on site and named names. Adams said he had been warned to keep quiet and for years as an adult he moved frequently, fearful of Klan retaliation.Adams, haunted by what he saw as a 10-year-old boy, continues to hold to his recollection of what he saw that day. Nevertheless, with many of the likely participants dead by that time, no official charges resulted.In 1997, a biracial group formed the Moore’s Ford Memorial Committee, which successfully secured a first-of-its-kind historical marker on Highway 78. Located near the turn-off to the lynching site, it notes the racist act that took place there on July 25, 1946.In 2001, then Gov. Roy Barnes officially ordered the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to re-open the case, followed in 2006 by the FBI. The lynching at Moore’s Ford Bridge joined the list of many other cold cases of unprosecuted racist murders that took place during Jim Crow segregation.In 2004, Tyrone Brooks approached the memorial committee with a dramatic proposal: to re-enact the murders and preceding events at the actual locations on the anniversary date.Year after year, in late July, local residents and family members as well as people from around the world gather in Monroe to witness a vile crime that mirrors past and present systemic injustices committed with impunity.More than seven decades have passed since four young Black people’s lives were ended by racist terrorists who were protected by a code of violent white supremacy.The official investigation and legal prosecution by the capitalist state have ended, but the trauma and pain remain. They continue to spur on the struggle for real justice and liberation.Mathiowetz has attended the re-enactment at Moore’s Ford Bridge multiple times and met the relatives of the Malcolms and Dorseys, who demand justice.

first_imgThe purpose of this project, sponsored by Indiana Dairy Farmers, is to tell the story of dairy products. Kaufmann says it does that very well, “Lots of people come and watch me work and ask questions about dairy products. This gives me a chance to explain the facts about dairy products.” She said people stay and listen to what she has to say because they are fascinated by watching her work.  The 2,000 lb sculpture will remain on display in the DuPont Food Pavilion until the end of the fair.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/08/big-cheese.mp3|titles=Cheese Tells the Dairy Story at State Fair]Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/08/big-cheese.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Cheese Tells the Dairy Story at State Fair As fairgoers watched, she transformed three 640 lb blocks of Indiana cheddar cheese into a eye-catching piece of art. Kaufmann told HAT that this year she incorporated color into her sculpture, “I wanted to get some of the rich browns and reds of the different dairy breeds into the piece, and then I decided to have some fun and put several different colors into the display.” She said it took several all night sessions to finish sculpture on time. Home Indiana Agriculture News Cheese Tells the Dairy Story at State Fair Facebook Twitter Sarah Kaufmann, The Cheese LadyThe dairy message has been delivered to Hoosiers in many different ways during the Year of Dairy Cows at the State Fair.  But one of the more effective ways has been through cheese art. This is the 7th year that Sarah Kaufmann, an Ohio cheese artist, has been to the Indiana State Fair carving cheese. This year, however, she said her portrait was extra special, “Because of the theme of the fair, I got to put dairy cows in my sculpture.”  Buttercup, the official mascot of the American Dairy Association of Indiana, is in the center of the display on a cheese throne with a cheese crown.  Her court consist of all the dairy breeds and dairy products.  Kaufmann said this project was her most ambitious to date, taking over 100 hours just to design.

Illinois Cattleman Testifies Against RFS

first_imgHome Energy Illinois Cattleman Testifies Against RFS Source: NAFB News Service SHARE By Gary Truitt – Dec 5, 2013 SHARE Facebook Twitter Foglesong says these costs aren’t sustainable for a segment of the industry that relies on corn. When state governors were denied a waiver of the RFS in light of the worst drought in over 50 years – he says it became evident the RFS needs to be fixed. Illinois Cattleman Testifies Against RFS Previous articleThe Truth About Hormones in BeefNext articleOhio Farm Mom Talks to Consumers on National TV Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter The Environmental Protection Agency hosted a public hearing on the proposed rule to reduce the 2014 renewable volume obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard Thursday. The proposed rule would reduce the 2014 RFS volume obligations for conventional corn-based ethanol by 1.39-billion gallons. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Past President Steve Foglesong was among those testifying. Foglesong – a cattle feeder and corn grower in Illinois – says it’s time to look at reforming the RFS and let the market pick winners and losers instead of the government. He says NCBA supports the proposed rule. While it’s a step in the right direction – Foglesong says NCBA believes more work needs to be done to level the playing field for all users of corn. Over the past four years – according to NCBA – the average cost to grain finish a market steer has increased by more than 200-dollars per head.last_img read more

Photos of the photomontage were taken in front of some of Paris’ most emblematic monuments while RWB activists on bicycles, waving banners with a smaller version, completed the procession.The police who stopped the four trucks were unable to provide Reporters Without Borders with grounds for the interception.“It is not right that the authorities took this kind of action to prevent a reference to the situation of freedom of information in China,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire.The aim of the protest was to highlight the open contempt that the Chinese authorities – led by Xi Jinping, who holds the posts of president of the People’s Republic, Communist Party general secretary and chairman of the Central Military Commission – show for their citizens, denying them freely-reported news and information and subjecting them to constant propaganda. “The disconnect between the official discourse about the Chinese dream and the ruthless persecution of independent journalists shows the degree to which Xi Jinping is making fun of the world,” Deloire said.“Article 35 of China’s constitution says that its citizens enjoy ‘freedom of speech (and) of the press,’ but more than 100 Chinese citizens – professional journalists and netizens – are currently in prison simply for trying to report the country’s reality.”In China, the state media are government propaganda tools, and the propaganda bureau sends more than 1,000 directives a year to all of the country’s journalists. News conferences are stage-managed with bogus journalists asking questions, while an ideological test has just been reintroduced for journalists when they need to renew their press card.The “campaign against rumours” launched by Xi aims to tighten control of the information circulated by Internet users, while improvements continue to be made to the “Electronic Great Wall.” When website filtering and blocking are not enough, the authorities have no compunction about abducting and beating “troublemakers.”With at least 30 journalists and 74 citizen-journalists currently detained, China is the world’s biggest prison for media personnel and netizens. China’s Nobel peace laureate, Liu Xiaobo, is serving an 11-year jail sentence just for defending free speech.China is ranked 175th out of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
