Lynching finally made a hate crime in USA

President Joe Biden has signed the first ever federal legislation making lynching a hate crime.

The bill is named after Emmett Till, a 14-year-old black boy, who was lynched by group of white men in 1955. The bill was signed into law on 31st March, with members of Till’s family present. Its taken 120 years for the anti-lyncing legislation to be signed after almost 200 failed attempts.

In her speech Kamala Harris, stated “Lynching is not a relic of the past. Racial acts of terror still occur in our nation. And when they do, we must all have the courage to name them and hold the perpetrators to account”.
