The terror of lynching haunts black Americans again

The terror of lynching haunts black Americans again
- The man who reportedly killed Collins was a white student named Seth Ubanski, who is said to have been involved with a Facebook group called Alt-Reich: Nation.
A lynching is a spectacular murder that serves as a warning to a whole group, as did Jim Crow-era hangings and 2015’s murders at Emanuel AME Church. The Collins killing reinforces the fear in African Americans that there is no space or activity – not buying Skittles in a suburb, buying a toy in a store, or going to a party – which is safe for us.
