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

43 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.

          • Ruthy July 7, 2019 - 6:38 pm

            Michael & Others Who say just “Let It Go”
            We Black People Of color Must NEVER “Let It Go” 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 “Let It Go” NEVER……Amerikkka Can Never Repay Their Damages! REPARATIONS….STRAIGHT BLACK PRIDE!

          • Tina July 26, 2019 - 4:07 pm

            Micheal you said let it go start heeling. My question to you is what are we letting go? Are we letting go of the history of the unfairness the unequality that African American had before this generation? do u know that in this world NOW ppl can sit where ever they choose? Oh and how about voting? oh and how about the rejection of service because of skin color. The death of people because they just could get away it.

            The point I am making is we CANT NOR WE WILL let go. Cause all that hard work would meant nothing to where we are today.

          • Bryana July 26, 2019 - 4:40 pm

            Tell you what, when innocent black people are no longer slayed in the streets, when they stop harassing us, when they start treating us like real humans, when they stop locking our blaxk men up because they want to keep us in bondage then and only then will we “let it go”. Until then have several seats and hush.

            Trauma like this is passed on through several generations. Some even believe through the genes. So one person cannot just let it go.

          • John Lindsay July 27, 2019 - 10:43 am

            It’s just plain ridiculous to try to determine “which group suffered the worse.”

            Although the Indigenous Peoples were nearly wiped out by Europeans and had a lot of land taken from them….they, too, owned enslaved Africans.

            At one time, Cherokees were allowed to become “White” and given land to farm, etc.
            But other Whites didn’t like it and began agitating to cast out the Cherokees and eventually they succeeded
            Black people are still waiting for their 40 acres and a mule.

            Many horrible things have happened to all People of Color by the hands of Whites.

            Two, many Whites today continue to benefit from huge inheritances handed down from the profits of slavery.
            Nearly every major corporation that has existed for 200+ years in the U.S. made money from slavery.

            Whites have benefited both directly and indirectly from slavery then and now.
            The South didn’t have a shipping industry, so northern-ships carried the South’s cotton and other crops overseas to sell. Northern-owned insurance companies insured those loads.
            Think of all the jobs involved in these industries.
            Think of all the jobs involved in ship-building, supplies needed to do business, wood, etc to construct the ships, etc, etc, etc.
            Slavery was the primary economic engine of that time, providing MILLIONS of jobs for White people.
            So telling me “my family didn’t own enslaved people” doesn’t mean anything….because your family….just like other White families….benefited from jobs which supported the cotton industry.

            all nonwhites have suffered underwhites , but afroamericans and american Indians really suffered the most , u can look at it how u want but it must have been horrible to live in those times , the worses thing is we can never bring these people responsible 400 years long of lynchings and etc for that to court , because most of them are dead ,so they got away with murder , what can we do , u can live in hate or u look forward and move on ,and do that whats good for your liife ,but we should never forget , sad but true ! i am also halfwhite and blck so nobodz has to tell about humans !

            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 100’s of years before your time, but they did happen🤷🏾‍♀️ & although, it wasn’t you or maybe not even your ancestors, it does not minimize the result! 100’s & 1000’s of men, women, & children suffered horrendous beatings, rapes, lynchings, & other unspeakable acts of brutality & it’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 boldly❤️🙌🏾

            All these people who keep tellin to let it go…are guilty or Racist. And for those who keep talking about all the other groups that were Slaves, knows nothing about History, majority if not all the other groups were indenture workers.

          It doesn’t hurt me because I am a black woman. It hurts to know that this baby was 14, taken from.his mother, and murdered. As a HUMAN….We should never forget ALL that we have grown from. As a mother, I cry for him. Race should never be an issue and it’s very sad that it still is. We are humans! We have souls and hearts and minds. We should be equipped with compassion and remorse….some of us are not.

          I am truly pissed off at a lot of these let it go Comments but if you don’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. It’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. It’s totaldisrespect to say things like that and it’s a shame on how total disrespect is show. On something Europeans created from the jump…

    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.

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.

    “Woman Linked to 1955 Emmett Till Murder Tells Historian Her Claims Were False.”
    “By Richard Pérez-Peña
    Jan. 27, 2017

    For six decades, she has been the silent woman linked to one of the most notorious crimes in the nation’s history, the lynching of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old black boy, keeping her thoughts and memories to herself as millions of strangers idealized or vilified her.

    But all these years later, a historian says that the woman has broken her silence, and acknowledged that the most incendiary parts of the story she and others told about Emmett — claims that seem tame today but were more than enough to get a black person killed in Jim Crow-era Mississippi — were false.

    The woman, Carolyn Bryant Donham, spoke to Timothy B. Tyson, a Duke University professor — possibly the only interview she has given to a historian or journalist since shortly after the episode — who has written a book, “The Blood of Emmett Till,” to be published next week.

    In it, he wrote that she said of her long-ago allegations that Emmett grabbed her and was menacing and sexually crude toward her, “that part is not true.”

    Never forget. Never forgive. Never stop accusing. Never move on. Never let it go. Be angry at anyone who suggests forgiveness or forgetfulness. Be outraged. Anyone who suggests forgiveness is your enemy. Never forget that. ….Wait, are you serious? What about Jesus? He must have been against all people of color when he said forgive your enemies, right?? Oh, well, if you don’t sense a little sarcasm here, you don’t have any sense. A lack of forgiveness only hurts you.

    Listen up everybody, when things happen in life, we are to forgive, and move on. Emmett is in HEAVEN with THE FATHER, JESUS, and THE HOLY SPIRIT. Jesus was crucified and He did it all for us. His DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION is why we should REPENT, FORGIVE ONE ANOTHER, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, AND PRAY FOR EACH OTHER. I LOVE YOU ALL even if you don’t want to accept what I text I still love you.

    Can’t we all just get along? This shit is getting old. The earth belongs to no one & we are a rainbow!

    But, being white doesn’t mean shit: the poor persons of European descent & colonialists Consciously got together & figured out that calling themselves white versus Polish, Italian, Irish, Bulgarian… made them a larger class & ran with it. A larger group to oppress.

    Then Christianity was forced down people’s throats. Now Evangelists have become an oppressive force. Spirituality was here first: in touch with the earth & the environment. Look at all the pollution that we now suffer & are dying from. Look at the conditions this government has created & encouraged on the “reservations”. It’s disgraceful what it supports for First Natives. And Latin American in cages for migrating which should be a respected human right. It is in the European created Human Rights Convention.

    And Mexican immigrants are not illegals, they were here first. Europeans bought land from under them. Much like they stole land from the first Natives, they were here first too. Take a Look at South Africa, who was there before the colonist rejects from England showed up? Stolen paradise.
    Then we can truly reflect and grieve for Emmit and his daily.

    Americans of African descent were enslaved for at least 246 years, and ended just 150 years ago. Descendants who’s parents were slaves are still alive!

    By making reparations to descendants of slaves, some of the suffering inflicted will be making amends. And then perhaps the US can start to eliminate racist groups of all stripes and lead the world by creating the objective of acceptance of humanity & it’s complimenting variety.

    I look in this child picture and see the innocence and hope that hatred refuses to see. How a community of evil people tortured, mutilated and murdered this kid based on a lie. Even if the lie had any truth in it no one deserved to be treated that way. Now over 50 year later, his gravesite is destroyed, burned and mocked photographed by so many others. It sickened me to my soul. God we need a new day of reckoning and deliverance in this country. Hate has become the new standard and brandmark of a country that at one time spoke of peace, hope and love. Our direction has changed course. It’s time to get back on course…
