So let me see if I have this straight…

A white teenage girl doesn't show up home from school one day as expected. She had been dating a black boy, so naturally her father and male relatives immediately form a posse and go kick in his family's door looking for her.

Meanwhile, she's stuck in a shallow old well in her own backyard into which she'd fallen and couldn't get out.

Luckily, she was found before she died down there. Presumably by someone other than her father who was preoccupied with his unhinged racism.

Sometimes people honestly just kill me.
