'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett's assault serves as a stark reminder that American lynching and noose attacks are still prevalent. Lynching may seem like something out of the distant past, but the use of the symbolism to terrify, intimidate and curtail the lives of black Americans is very much happening today, say civil rights advocates. Congress has yet to enact a law making lynching a federal crime, though the Senate did unanimously pass the Justice for Lynching Act in December. Ref. USAToday.
