My father and brothers are African American men! And this isn’t justice for the colored.

I’m signing because as a life long resident of Jackson County I believe this tree represents the roots of evil in Jackson County. It should’ve been done a long time ago. #CutItDown

I worked in a nursing home Had a resident tell me the story with tears running down his face he said they hung his friend in front of the court house in Marianna he said Neal didn't kill her Neal grew up with this white girl and she was going to marry a local good ole boy he found out they where seeing each other and pinned the murder on Neal I seen so much pain in eyes I went to Mariana about 5years ago and started asking about it went to Greenwood they drug his body from Marianna to Greenwood where 2000 people was at the farm of the white girl I went to a store in greenwood thats been there since 1800same family owns it so I ask him about it he really didn't want to talk about I ask him about the postcard ask him did he have one he gave me a cold look I'm sure his family was at that farm and to this day they will not name the men that done this in justice I think they should cut the tree down and name the 6 men
