Events mark Emmett Till slaying 60 years later


JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Sixty years after a black Chicago teenager was killed for whistling at a white woman in Mississippi, relatives and civil rights activists are holding church services and movie screenings to remember Emmett Till.

They're also trying to continue the legacy of his late mother, Mamie Till Mobley, who worked with young people and encouraged them to challenge injustice in their everyday lives. It's a message that Deborah Watts, a distant cousin of Till's, sees as relevant amid the killings in recent years of young black men such as Trayvon Martin in Florida and Tamir Rice in Ohio ...

He was kidnapped and killed Aug. 28, 1955, and his body was recovered from the Tallahatchie River three days later. An all-white jury acquitted two white men charged in the slaying.

A very sad and horrific event in American history. The images of Emmett's grotesque and mutilated body by white southern racists are seared into American history. His demise was made public (thank God!). Sadly, there were thousands of other blacks who were tortured and murdered while history has remained oblivious to their existence. Now the mass killings come in the form of "black on black crime". A subject that is taboo and makes a mockery of the so-called specious "Black Lives Matter" cacophony.....

Had a premonition you would twist the subject of Emmett Till to some how point negative fingers at Black folk.

Behind so-called "black on black crime" there will always be various elements of social depression caused by White folk through structural racism ... know this Xeon.

Black Lives Matter has a beautiful ring to me and most Black folk I know.

"Had a premonition you would twist the subject of Emmett Till to some how point negative fingers at Black folk."

Ummmm....How did I twist it? Did I not acknowledge it was an horrific crime? Did I not say this atrocity is rightfully documented in history? Not sure what you mean....

"Behind so-called "black on black crime" there will always be various elements of social depression caused by White folk through structural racism ... know this Xeon."

Wrong! Has nothing to do with the white folks. Black people have always been poor and oppressed but the level of senseless violence by street coons and thugs is unprecedented. I talked to two friends yesterday at the gym, one is from Newark and the other is from Chicago. Upon returning home for a visit, both were stunned by the level of craven violence in the communities they grew up in. The response: "Bro, it was never that bad when I was growing up! I can't believe it!" Their words -not mine. Don't make spurious excuses for bad personal behavior or a dysfunctional culture.....

"Black Lives Matter has a beautiful ring to me and most Black folk I know".

Really? When does it matter? If the life is lost at the hands of a non-white or regardless who takes the life? Which is it? It seems the sickening hypocrisy applies only to "black victims" and "non-black perpetrators". To me -ALL LIVES MATTER REGARDLESS OF WHO THE PERPETRATOR OR VICTIM IS! I cannot understand how Negroes are smugly willing to look the other way when innocent blacks are being murdered every single day by black thugs while foaming at the mouth and railing about a numerically small number of blacks homicides by non-blacks. Again -All black lives matter regardless of the race of the perpetrator!

Unlike many cretinous Negroes, I don't cherry pick whose life matters and whose life does not! The entire so-called "Black Lives Matter" hysteria is a disingenuous hoax for the reasons I stated.....

Very typical for a non-black to over-use the term, Negroe(s). Also its typical for non-blacks to replace Black Lives Matter with All Lives Matter.

"I cannot understand how Negroes are smugly willing to look the other way"

"Unlike many cretinous Negroes, I don't cherry pick whose life matters"

According to you and others, we can't even have our own movement without a white privilege narrative seeking to change the name :facepalm: ... so typical of racism white supremacy.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
