  Lynching? No, we have become more enlightened here in the US. One of our
proudest examples of progress was the dragging of a black man by chains from
the back of a truck in Jasper County, Texas, causing his eventual
decapitation. We have progressed, you see.

   Seriously, the number of race-related crimes has dropped substantially in
the 30 years. But we still have a long way to go before we achieve any kind of
domestic harmony.
