Centuries of slavery followed by systemic racism—such as sharecropping, black codes, Jim Crow—have acted as "virtual re-enslavement" policies that continue today. The practice of lynching was done by families, women and children, who would smile and grin at blacks being hung, or tied to a truck with their bodies dragged through the streets until the limbs came apart. Although not everyone is traumatized by a particular incident, slavery is not about one incident but a lifetime of incidents.
