I must say white Southerners certainly have an impressive record of *lynching* their black neighbors as individuals. Quite a display of Southern hospitality on this table (link below). I note that my home state of Massachusetts does not appear to have lynched anyone at all. Well, that's the frosty North for you: They may not be quick to give you a "Howdy!" but they're not quick to dangle you by the neck from a tree, either.
