The reason "The Black Bean Incident" Is called that is because after the failed Mier expedition attack on Mexico, the Texan soldiers were captured. They were lead to a camp for %10 of them to be shot and killed. Each person was blindfolded, stuck their hand into a bowl of beans, and pulled out a single bean. If they pulled out a white bean they were safe, if they pulled out a black bean, they were ordered to be shot.
