Today -100: September 13, 1911: Of imperialism and race wars

The Italian government has decided to seize Libya, taking advantage of the Franco-German conflict over Morocco.

A “race war” breaks out in Alexandria, Louisiana. A white student at the Baptist college bumped a black man, who hit him with a fence picket, killing him. White mobs have been attacking random black men, as is the custom.
