What concepts can you derive from this image?

This is a powerful image in several ways. The story it tells is a realistic portrayal of the past which foreshadows the racism that is still prevalent today. The dated look of the visual adds to the overall feeling that the reader experiences while looking at and reading the image. Lynching as an action produces profound feelings for the reader especially since this is no longer a regular occurrence (shootings on the other hand...). The accompanying text adds to the article by bringing in some backstory and showing both sides of the situation. Overall an excellent visualization. I was a little confused with the term technologies, as in "technologies of control". Was lynching the "technology of control?" (I am new to anthro, so this might totally make sense, I am just not there yet).
