    The Bible is described as controversial and he actually said probability or something like that...good show, just so many ideas at once hard to follow.

    If the Roots really knew where the word picnic came from ,they would not name their celebration this,it makes them the punt of an inside joke...

    Y'all. The word Picnic comes from a 17th century french phrase. Came to this country through New Orleans. can be surmised that hen creole was finding its linguistic feet, the phrase was co-opted by the domestic terrorism of Jim Crow. The thought that the word has its origins in lynchings simply means you've believed a lie perpetuated by racism. Yes, many lynchings took place in picnic settings. But watermelons are a west african fruit. and yet somehow that too got transformed into a tool for perpetuating racist ideas. do the work to chisel away at the destructive myths which have co-opted/encrusted our words and culture.

      nope. started in france. came here through new orleans. lynchings often happened in white communities in picnic settings. word doesnt have its origins there though. the evolution of linguistic patterning (especially in pidgin languages) historically tells us that words are often requisitioned by oppressive forces to further repress a group of people. so it's our responsibility to destabilize the power structure by understanding where the words actually come from instead of believing what the oppressor dictates.
