Elliot Jaspin shares his views on the System of White Supremacy. A White man, Jaspin is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of Buried In The Bitter Waters: The Hidden History of Racial Cleansing In America. Elliot Jaspin’s work chronicles the disgraceful, intentional disposal/expulsion of black people throughout the area of the world known as the United States. He explicitly highlights how Victims of White Supremacy do not belong to a community. Consequently, they can be jettisoned at any time. This extremely important text provides comprehensive evidence that Whites conducted more than 260 terrorist purges against black U.S. citizens. Rosewood, Florida (1923); Wilmington North Carolina (1898); Forsyth, Georgia (1912); and Tulsa, Oklahoma (1921) are simply the most well known of these White rituals of plunder. The following exert is from page 61 of the book: “What followed was an orgy of violence. On May, 17 , two blacks were grabbed at random by a mob and quite literally shot to pieces. It was estimated that 700 bullets were fired into them. The next day Hayes Turner, suspected of being part of the black conspiracy, was lynched. His body, left hanging for two days, became a grisly tourist attraction for local whites. Sidney Johnson was tracked to Valdosta and shot to death. When Turner’s wife, Mary, threatened to find his killer and swear out arrest warrants, her “unwise remarks” became a death sentence. The day after her husband died, the mob grabbed Mary, eight months pregant, hung her upside down from a tree, doused her with gasoline, set her on fire, then disemboweled her and tore out the fetus. The baby gave a feeble cry before a member of the mob stomped it to death. Although the exact death toll will never be known, the mob murdered at least eleven people.”
