Baby sister’s surgery went well! Apparently it took enough tranquilizers to down an elephant to sedate her.

There is no record of a confession. No physical evidence that he committed the crime exists. His trial — if you want to call it that — lasted less than two hours. No witnesses were called. No defense evidence was presented. And the all-White jury deliberated for all of 10 minutes before sentencing him to death.
On June 16, 1944, his frail, 5-foot-1, 95-pound body was strapped in to an electric chair at a state correctional facility in Columbia, S.C. Dictionaries had to be stacked on the seat of the chair so that he could properly sit in the seat. But even that didn’t help. When the first jolts of electricity hit him, the head mask reportedly slipped off, revealing the agony on his face and the tears streaming down his cheeks. Only after several more jolts of electricity did the boy die. (x)
The entire Stinney trial, including jury selection, took one day. Stinney’s court-appointed defense counsel was a tax commissioner campaigning for election to local political office. Stinney’s lawyer did not challenge the three police officers who testified Stinney confessed to the two murders, despite this being the only evidence presented by the prosecution. The police did not make written records of Stinney’s purported confession, and at trial, Stinney denied confessing to the crime. (x)
According to records, the 66-year-old told an attorney that she had “of course” used “the n-word”, though not for many years. She also said that she had considered hiring an all-black team of waiters as part of an old-style southern plantation theme for her brother’s wedding in 2007, having been impressed by a visit to a restaurant where the “entire wait staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie”.

Jackson lawyer: “Have you ever used the ‘N word’ yourself?”
Deen: “Yes, of course.”
Deen testified that she probably used the racial slur when talking to her husband about “when a black man burst into the bank that I was working at and put a gun to my head.”
"I didn’t feel real favorable towards him," she said, referring to the robber.
Jackson lawyer: “Have you used it since then?”
Deen: “I’m sure I have, but it’s been a very long time.” (x)
And let’s not ignore the fact that she’s built a culinary empire by appropriating traditionally African American cuisine (yeah, sugah, all “Southern” cuisine is black cuisine).
But please, go on defending the poor racist white lady and her millions of dollars. Truly, she’s the one who has suffered from a gross miscarriage of justice here.

I hope you accidentally brag about being better than a Greek god at something.
While there was a small monetary offer, the most meaningful and, some would say, important gain was the requirement that Marvel display their names during the beginning credits of any Captain America movie. A flash of names on a screen may not seem like much, but to Simon’s grandchildren who represented him at the 2011 Captain America movie premiere in LA, it meant the world. On the red carpet we called him and held up the cell phone so that he could hear the cheers of fans on the sidelines. We wanted him to soak up as much of the excitement as possible from his New York City studio apartment. We introduced ourselves to every actor that we met as ‘the grandchildren of the creator of Captain America,’ not even sure if they knew who created this mega character.
My grandfather passed away on December 14, 2011, only months after the release of the first movie. Family members always say, ‘thank god he got to see the movie.’
My intent in writing this before the April release of The Winter Soldier is to ask that everyone keep him in their hearts and minds. Let us always remember Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, even if just for a quick moment as their names flash across the screen."
