“How refreshing to consume words that have meaning and depth. In the great and honored tradition of wisdom literature and if there is anything that could be called instant wisdom, ‘nigga notes & quotes’ fills that void. This book may be the finest book of quotes, anecdotes, sayings and sage bromides any people struggling for human dignity and liberation will ever read.”Tanomar Akili Muumba

when describing “nigga notes & quotes”*
– day twenty-three –
Today, I present a visual reminder (sans quotes) to Trump and others about what lynching really was… lynching was a state-sanctioned and community-ordained terrorism that followed Black folks in this country after the Civil War until about the 1930s. I will present a more rhetorical evisceration of Trump tomorrow but wanted to make certain that we don’t lose the proper context and documented history for Trump’s reckless and ignorant comparison of his impeachment as a “lynching”.

*Since most of these quotes were collected prior to 1985 it means some of the authors of these quotes, I have simply forgotten… blame old age! (Ha) When the author is known, I will indicate it. When an author is not indicated, please forgive me and understand. Furthermore, this collection of quotes was first started as a personal endeavor never meant to be shared publicly thus the reason why some authors may not be indicated.
