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.

    Where were you, when they sent terrorist to India? Why pakistan government gave refugee to a terrorist Osama bin laden in their country? Who is providing terror camp site near pok and pakistan? Where were you, when train full of innocent people and children was locked and burnt? Everyone is speaking of injured students in stone pelting at Kashmir but no one has interviewed a police personnel injured in that Tehrik? Why? Calling me a Psychopath? Lady, please.

    If I am wrong correct me but I think we should propagate something to awaken the universal brotherhood rather than inciting any section to rise against the other... All I am saying is we should analyse before we post and see to it whether it would cause negative or positive impact/reaction...chooseThebestThewiseand Thegood

    Humans are so wicked and it's shocking to see why we can't we all live as equal humans with equal rights??? Every human is born same and dies same. But some people really like to watch the world burn and hence they point out differences like skin colour, gender etc.
