Rock Springs State Park! Such a beautiful place. It’s near Kelly Park Rock Springs, the most gorgeous natural landscape in Florida I’ve been to yet. Yesterday we spent the day with the Florida Native Plant Society and Sierra Club removing Lions Main, Cesar Weed, and Cover crop Indigo. When landscaping and creating habitat, Florida native plants are always the answer. 🍂#sierraclub#plantnative#floridanativeplants#rocksprings#invasiveplants

🌵🌺 In Chicano History
The November 3, 1910 Rocksprings, Texas lynching of 20-year-old ranch-hand from Las Vacas, Mexico Antonio Rodríguez (1890–1910). His boss, Mrs. Lem Henderson was found shot dead at her ranch home near Rocksprings on November 2, 1910. Rodríguez would immediately become the only suspect, despite many claiming that Mr. Henderson may have actually killed his own wife. There was never a trial for Rodríguez. Instead an angry mob consisting of the Henderson Family, neighbors, and local officers would violently capture young Rodríguez, and throw him in jail.
Meanwhile on the other side of the border, Mexicanos pointing out the obvious racism took to the streets to protest the attack on Rodríguez. They crossed the border and set U.S. flags on fire, and also destroyed Anglo settlements. As a response, an angry mob of Anglos broke into the jail and kidnapped Rodríguez. They tied him to a tree in the center of town, threw igniter on him, and set him on fire. Pure and simple: Antonio Rodríguez was lynched.
Nobody, not a single person, would ever be found guilty for the murder/lynching of Rodríguez.
The Washington Herald ran an extremely racist cartoon and article decrying the "savagery of Mexicans" instead of pointing to the savagery of Anglos who lynched an innocent 20-year-old. The following year, in 1911, a mob of Anglos would lynch yet another young Chicano - fourteen-year-old Antonio Gómez.
It is extremely important to note when in history this happened - the Mexican Revolution began in 1910 and anti-Mexican sentiment came to a violent head during these times. Crimes against Mexicans ran rampant and completely unchecked.
Today we remember Rodríguez, Gómez, and all the victims of Anglo racism during 1910 - to present. We also salute those who throughout history have risen against racism, to fight for what's right.
Thank you to all those who serve and have served our country.🖤
