Atlanta-Journal Constitution Racist Tweet

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) tweeted on Oct. 23: “$1M GA Lottery winner Willie Lynch can get 40 acres and a whole lotta mules.” The tweet linked to an article about local lottery winners, but hit the core of many Black Americans who are descendants of slaves. During the American Civil War, Blacks felt that they had a right to own the land they worked on as slaves, thus the government gifted 40 acres of land and a mule to some. Ultimately the tweet was taken down and the AJC issued a written apology to readers.
