Delaware had it's last public whipping in 1952, but the practice wasn't formally banned until the 1970's and calls to reimplement it formally occured in the 1980s. 

  Delaware was the last state to execute a man by hanging in 1996. 

  Today in Dover Delaware there are two suspicious 'suicides' that involve young black men hanging from trees by their own belts, a racist leaflet campaign depicting a lynching, and a victim of an attempted lynching which our police and attorney general refuse to investigate. 

  NAACP, SPLC, ACLU, Sharpton, Jackson, even Danny Glover are all mute, USDOJ hasn't stepped in, media coverage is thin. Aneroxic in fact. 

 Join us tonight for a compelling discussion when we unveil what is apparently corruption in the local and state NAACP, with implications that go up to the national level. 

 Fight the power, tune in, turn on, and stand up.
