#1 a dark chapter in the nation’s history targeting African Americans

Just "African Americans"? Not being sarcastic, really curious.

#3 If only white people can be racist, does it follow that only black people can be lynched?

#4 Simple projection. A parade of squirrels on a hot summer night in South Chicago. All of which will soon be prohibited from mention.

#5 Charles Lynch was a Virginia Quaker,[7]:23ff planter, and American Revolutionary who headed a county court in Virginia which imprisoned Loyalist supporters of the British for up to one year during the war. Although he lacked proper jurisdiction for detaining these persons, he claimed this right by arguing wartime necessity. Subsequently, he prevailed upon his friends in the Congress of the Confederation to pass a law that exonerated him and his associates from wrongdoing. He was concerned that he might face legal action from one or more of those he had imprisoned, notwithstanding the American Colonies had won the war. This action by the Congress provoked controversy, and it was in connection with this that the term "Lynch law", meaning the assumption of extrajudicial authority, came into common parlance in the United States. Lynch was not accused of racist bias. He acquitted blacks accused of murder on three separate occasions.[8][9] He was accused, however, of ethnic prejudice in his abuse of Welsh miners. - wiki

#9 Joe Biden apologizes when footage of him blasting 1998 Clinton impeachment as a 'partisan lynching' is unearthed – after he attacked Donald Trump for calling this year's saga a 'lynching'

#10 Hypocrisy matters to conservatives, but it doesn't matter to the left who simply judge if things make them feel good or bad. in this case the word lynching makes them feel bad and attacking Trump makes them feel good.

#14 Such remarks were O.K. by Dems back in 1998 when Slick Willie was being impeached for real crimes?

#15 Considering the level of dudgeon, it's hard to believe the dems ever had an Attorney General named Lynch...
