The tragedy of Emmett Till

He was only 14 when he was brutally lynched in the Jim Crow South. His mother chose to hold an open casket funeral to expose the horror of his murder. This is the story of Emmett Till, a lasting symbol in the fight for racial justice.

    Oscar Wildes once said, " USA is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between " . I couldn't agree more.

    I watched the documentary and watching and hearing the details on how he was killed from his mom, that broke my heart. No matter how many years go by, prayers, and support from others, there’s nothing can bring back your child.

    Where is the outrage from when a black man shot a 5 yr old white boy in the head. Because he was riding his bike in front of his house ? Hardly made the news. If it was a white man that did it. All hell would break loose

    I mean it took that long to pass a bill on making lynching a federal hate crime? That's disgusting. It should've been passed when it happened.
