Forever in Our Hearts: Happy Birthday, Emmett Till !!!

20 Posted by - July 25, 2018 - BLACK MEN, Gone But Not Forgotten, Injustices

Emmett Louis Till was an young black boy who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman.

Till was from Chicago, Illinois. At the time, he was visiting his relatives in Money, Mississippi, when he spoke to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the married proprietor of a small grocery store there. Several nights later, Bryant’s husband Roy and his half-brother, J. W. Milam, arrived at Till’s great-uncle’s house where they took Till, transported him to a barn, beat him, and gouged out one of his eyes. He was shot through the head and his body, along with a 70-pound cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire, was disposed of in the Tallahatchie River. Till’s body was discovered and retrieved from the river three days later.

Till was returned to Chicago and his mother, who had raised him mostly by herself, insisted on a public funeral service with an open casket to show the world the brutality of the killing. Tens of thousands of mourners attended his funeral or viewed his casket. Images of his mutilated body were published in black magazines and newspapers, rallying popular black support and white sympathy across the U.S. Intense scrutiny was brought to bear on the condition of black civil rights in Mississippi, with newspapers around the country critical of the state.

Although initially local newspapers and law enforcement officials decried the violence against Till and called for justice, they soon began responding to national criticism by defending Mississippians, which eventually transformed into support for the killers.

          I am half white and half egyptian. I feel horrible fir this young man. Ghd white side of me is polish. But i bear the color of the white man which emvarmbarasses me. In my blood of egypt, which is African, i am emvarrassed again cause this part of my culture started slavery for the world. How can things change?? Money wont do it, and making 5 generations or more later to pay for it will make it worse. The past is the past all cultures have suffered in history. No race suffered as much as the american indians. 100 million geneside in approx 150 years on their own land. Stolen land. LET IT GO AND START HEELING. prosecute those now for their current deeds, especially the Nazi cops in america………..

            Michael, slavery was the way of the world at one time. Everyone from the Vikings to the Africans, the early Greeks, Romans and the all Middle eastern populations, the Inca and Native Americans, Chinese and Japanese people all had some form of slavery going back to B.C. Hitler practiced it against Jews and other people, including the Gypsies. We’ve made progress. No need to carry the burden.

            Michael & Others Who say just โ€œLet It Goโ€
            We Black People Of color Must NEVER โ€œLet It Goโ€ Our Ancestors Were BRUTALIZED, MURDERED, RAPED, BABIES CUT & RIPPEF from the bellies of their Moms in FRONT of their Black Man to inject TOTAL FEAR of Retaliation. NO People Endured Over 400 + years of Total Murder & Brutality as have The Black Man & Woman! We Will Never Forget! And, No 5 generations later are not responsible for what Their ancestors did, But They Reap The Benefits Of My Ancestors FREE Labor That BUILT America! And, in turn We Black People Continue To Suffer As A Result. So how dare U fix your mouth to tell Us to just โ€œLet It Goโ€ NEVER……Amerikkka Can Never Repay Their Damages! REPARATIONS….STRAIGHT BLACK PRIDE!

            The past is the past? Let it go? I guess the Jews who got reparations didn’t get that message. I guess the American Indians who got reparations didn’t get that message. I guess the Japanese who got reparations didn’t get that message. I guess even the Europeans who got reparations for WWII through the Marshall Plan didn’t get that message either. It is funny that some people want blacks to be the only group to forget the past.

            Although, I wish I could let it go, the abuse that was bestowed amongst our ancestors will forever hunt us. Those of other suffering ethnicities, my heart bleeds for you as well. But for someone to be so outraged with something so brutal bewilders me!? I understand that these events occurred 100โ€™s of years before your time, but they did happen๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ & although, it wasnโ€™t you or maybe not even your ancestors, it does not minimize the result! 100โ€™s & 1000โ€™s of men, women, & children suffered horrendous beatings, rapes, lynchings, & other unspeakable acts of brutality & itโ€™s noted. Now understand, that this is not to attack you, your race, or anyone else of this day & age, but we of the African-American descent still hurt for our descendants, & will forever wear their scared history boldlyโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ

          I am truly pissed off at a lot of these let it go Comments but if you donโ€™t know your history you will never understand it. Yes all races have been enslaved however American slavery to blacks is the worse of its kind and to make it even Worse ourblwn ppl sold us out….. American slavery to blacks is what you call chattel slavery which is worse than what you would treat your own. Dog. They were property had no rights and lived by the masters rules. Less of human beings and brainwashed into thinking just that. Itโ€™s horrible to say just get over it yes we never lived in those times however our people had to endure 400 years that would be 4 centuries of not being able to be free, make there own decisions or live a normal life. Families were separated forever, women raped, children abused , men degraded. your body was not your own and you were controlled only to fall into despair that the nightmare would never end until death knocked at your door. Itโ€™s totaldisrespect to say things like that and itโ€™s a shame on how total disrespect is show. On something Europeans created from the jump…

    I believe that the evil in this world takes out the most heaven sent beautiful souls on purpose and the sick way this world supports evil and demotes the holy is beyond my understanding completely. I know God is up there seeing all of this and all will be dealt with accordingly.
    RIP and Happy Heavenly Birthday

    I am truly sorry for what those things did to you and the woman wasn’t even good looking. She should be in jail. I hope when I get to heaven I can meet you and tell you how loved you are. But you probably know that.

    I cannot respond as I would like to,. My heart is full. In this young man I see another lost great mind. Why? Two immediate responses come to mind;
    1. Being in the right place at the wrong time,
    3. Being a beautiful color that all color lines cannot live without, unless it is a skin color!

    I found out last weekend that the killing of Emmett Till caused my mother’s family to move out of Greenwood, MS to Mexico, MO. Six sets of family members left and never looked back!!!

    I don’t understand why we are told to let it go. In my family the races are like a bag of skittles African American, White, American Indian. and Creole And because of my colorful heritage how do I just let it go. The cruelty was done to my family.

    I was nine years old when this happened. All pastors preached about this hatred in church, and I remember hearing older people talking about how awful it was allowed to happen to a little black kid. Kids today don’t understand the sacrifices that have been made in order the to live half ass normal lives. My family is integrated and I spend time sharing my growing up experiences with my family so they won’t lower their guard to low. I could have easily been the victim going to an intergrated school in the early 60’s.

    Emmit Till. The sad thing is that so many other black men have been killed without any consequences even today. There are so many Emmit Till stories by the hands of police brutality, mind altered black on black crime, racially motivated murder, government organized killings, and murder by economic deprivement. When Black begin to tack a stand for themselves, then and only then will change come.
