People Refuse to Believe Hanged Black Man Killed Himself, Just Like ‘Hands Up Don’t Shoot’
Immediately after the news broke that a black man was found hanged in Mississippi, everyone immediately jumped to the conclusion that the KKK had began a genocidal campaign against blacks and every white person is in on the conspiracy. They must believe this in order to further their ridiculous political agenda, and to keep minorities voting Democrat and hating whitey while becoming even more entrenched in their victim mentality.
Here are some examples!
Victim blaming of #OtisByrd ain't nothin new for these people. They did the same to 12 year old #TamirRice murdered by police.

Anti-black racism is the fabric of this nation, the thread of the noose and flag. A post-racial America is America dismantled. #OtisByrd

White kids sing about "lynching n****rs" but they're not racist. Black man is found hanged in Mississippi but it's not racist. #OtisByrd

No black dude would ever commit suicide by hanging themselves from a tree. Also it is physically impossible. #otisbyrd

Otis James Byrd went missing in Claiborne County. He was then found hanging from a tree. #JusticeForByrd

My dad who's from Claiborne County said it was definitely a KKK retaliation on Otis Byrd for killing a white woman in the 80's or 90's.

I don't give a damn if Otis Byrd was in jail or not. That nigga was a damn human being. & no human beings in 2015 should be lynched. SMH

But with the recent revelation that Otis Byrd very likely committed suicide, a slew of morons is taking to Twitter to manifest how deeply imbedded they in a racist fantasy. This is just like the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” lie that they persist in believing despite Eric Holder’s Department of Justice itself saying it was a lie. In this case, rather than being relieved that a black man wasn’t lynched, they will demand that reality bend to their will.
Here ya go:
Otis Byrd was LYNCHED. no black man goes to the woods of MISSISSIPPI in the wee hours of the night to hang himself. Period.

I’m trying to wrap my head around this Otis Byrd investigation of homicide vs suicide. In a hanging suicide is rather clear.
— Daryl Moore (@mooredthoughts) March 20, 2015
I feel for the family of Otis Byrd because you know they're about to do everything in their power to make this into a "suicide"
— a (@awpinion) March 20, 2015
Sure #OtisByrd committed suicide. It's not like #Mississippi has a history of hanging blacks. Nothing to see here. pic.twitter.com/Nk0IKLwVNl

Why would #OtisByrd commit suicide AFTER serving 25years in prison?that does not make any sense whatsoever i don't believe racist cops
— Bassem Masri (@bassem_masri) March 20, 2015
MS officials trying desperately 2 make the death of Otis Byrd a suicide!
— Bruce Resch (@Reschzoo) March 20, 2015
I wish they would call #OtisByrd death a LYNCHING because that's what it is … Not "found hanging" he was LYNCHED use the word #CNNBeLike

"#OtisByrd could have held the sheets w/his teeth while he climbed 15 ft up a deserted tree in the woods to lynch himself."-My mentions.

@DaleMoss2 I now understand why folks study 'critical race theory' & why it's critical. The psychological warfare has been relentless.

@Thinking_Helps Mystery solved. Sat on limb; tied on sheet; jumped to ground. C'mon now!!! Hanging last resort.

If you believe Otis Byrd's hanging was really a suicide, you've lost every bit of your mind.
— Nah, It's Old Main (@EMDmufasa) March 20, 2015
disgusting how the media tried to cover up otis byrd's lynching by talking about his "criminal record" and "obvious suicide" #justiceforotis
— princess (@happilyarch) March 20, 2015
But the one that really gets me is this one:
Is it even *possible* to hang oneself from a tree? @OwlsAsylum @PrettiiRickii @AP
— Anne B (@abroshar) March 20, 2015
This genius actually believes it’s physically impossible for a man to hang himself. I don’t know how it’s intellectually possible for someone to be so stupid. God help us all.
