Black woman gets lynching threats on twitter

17:23 Jul 1 2015 New York, NY, USA

In an interview with AlterNet, actress Pia Jones describes the harassment she faces on Twitter:

I've had lynching threats. People send me terrible historical pictures of our ancestors being lynched... When a white woman gets terrible harassment about being raped, attacked or killed, that's very serious as well. But there's no way she can get the lynching threats with historical pictures of black people. So there's a whole other section of ugly, hideous things people feel they can say to us.
