LETTER: Offensive Halloween displays mimic tragedies of the past

I enjoy the displays in front yards getting ready for Halloween but strongly protest the one that has two shrouded bodies hanging by the neck.

Whoever put them up is ignorant of the suffering and shame caused by the lynching of black men mostly in the South.

Black children were forced to watch as a warning of what could happen to them.

If the people who put up these grisly displays read this, please take them down.
