Note the report in column 1: "Body of Sheldon Harte, Trotsky Aide, Found"
(Mr. Harte was kidnapped during the attack against Leon Trotsky on May 24th.
 
Also note the report in column 7: "Former Detroit Mayor, Prosecutor Face Trial"
(According to the report the former Republican mayor of Detroit, Richard W. Reading, Prosecutor Duncan C. McCrea and 75 others to be put on trial for "conspiring to protect the policy and numbers rackets in Detroit." Another 55 people, including 49 police officers, were charged, but the charges were dismissed. Reading was found guilty and sentenced to 4-5 years in prison, but only served three. He died Dec. 9, 1952.

Just think, today Michigan has the lottery and legalized gambling, so now the State Government is running the "numbers racket.")

Note the report at bottom left: "Tennessee Negro Alleged Victim Of New Style Lynching Tactics"
(The report states; Everett Williams, a 33 year-old Black man, was kidnapped and flogged to death for his interest in organizing a chapter of the NAACP in his area.

In fact, his name was Elbert Williams, and he was 31 years-old. He was one of the leaders of the local NAACP chapter. Nobody was ever held accountable for his murder.

If you are a real American, reading this report should make you sick. It should also remind you that Blacks do have valid reasons to feel aggrieved. With that said, how groups like BLM and the people who are pushing critical race theory, the 1619 Project and other anti-White, racists, propaganda programs (including the Biden administration) are going about trying to fix the "race problem" is not the answer. But they will make the division between White and Black deeper and more difficult to repair.)

Note the report in column 4: "Mother And Three Children Are Found Hanging In Hencoop"
(Charles Sandlin's lame story about being sick and in bed did not hold any water with the police and he was quickly arrested. On Aug. 3, 1940 he was convicted of murdering his family and given life in prison. He had killed his wife Louise Gertude, 28 and children Louise Elizabeth, 5, Charles Joseph, 7 and Emily Joalice, 6 months)
