The Murder of Emmett Till

with 791 comments

1955_jpg

The murder of a 14-year old black boy Emmett Till  in Money, Mississippi in August 1955 sparked the Civil Rights movement, but the crime won’t sound clarion calls for a nation to wake up to if not for the above photo. The gruesome photographs of Till’s mutilated corpse circulated around the country, notably appearing in Jet magazine, which targeted African American crowd. The photo drew intense public reaction. Till, while visiting Mississippi from Chicago, whistled* at a married white woman and incurred the wrath of local white residents.

In the middle of the night, the door to his grandfather’s house was thrown open, and Emmett was taken by the mob of at least six white men, forced into a truck and driven away, never again to be seen alive. Till’s body was found swollen and disfigured in the Tallahatchie river three days after his abduction and only identified by his ring. It was sent back to Chicago, where his mother insisted on leaving the casket open for the funeral and on having people take photographs because she wanted people to see how badly Till’s body had been disfigured—she has famously been quoted as saying, “I wanted the world to see what they did to my baby.” Up to 50,000 people viewed the body.

On the day he was buried, two men — the husband of the woman who had been whistled at and his half brother — were indicted of his murder, but the 12-member all-white male jury (some of whom actually participated in Till’s torture and execution) took only an hour to return ‘not guilty’ verdict. The verdict would have been quicker, remarked the grinning foreman, if the jury hadn’t taken a break for a soft drink on the way to the deliberation room. To add insult to injury, knowing that they would not be retrial, the two accused men sold their stories to LOOK magazine and happily admitted to everything.

Elsewhere in Mississippi too, things weren’t going terribly well for blacks either. Just before Till was murdered, two activists Rev. George Lee and Lamar Smith were shot dead for trying to exercise their rights to vote, and in a shocking testimony to lack of law and order, no one came forward to testify although both murders were committed in broad daylight. The next year, Clyde Kennard, a former army sergeant, tried to enrolled at Mississippi South College in Hatiesburg in 1956. He was sent away, but came back to ask again. For this ‘audacity’, university officials — not students, or mere citizens, but university officials —  planted stolen liquor and a bag of stolen chicken feed in his car and had him arrested. Kennard died halfway into his seven year sentence. But times were slowly a-changing: Brown vs. Board of Education was decided in 1954, and three months after the Till murder took place, Rosa Parks would refuse to move to the back of a bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Sit-ins and marches would follow, and soon the civil rights movement itself would be in fullswing.

(Details were evidently murky: some said he asked Carolyn Bryant out on a date; some said he suggested to her that he had already been with white girls. Some said he showed her a photo of his white girlfriends. Others insist that the photo was that of Hedy Lamarr which came with his wallet.)

      • Yeah janet is very stupid, and prejudice from the sound of it but hey ignorance is bliss. it makes u feel better that your more superior then a low life that probally didnt make it out of middle school from sleeping with her father. but this is a tramatic thing that happened and it paved a lot of roads for all races this incident did. But my advice janet is to think about what u say or type before u do, and really consider your inferiority.

      • Thank you Shannon! Emmett Till was my cousin and I grew up in the home with his mom, grandma, and stepdad. My mother played with him and they lived in the same building. His mom Mamie Till Mobley always said that image of Emmett demonstrated what racism looked like. Imagine his mom having to look at her only child like that-and that is what he looked like AFTER the morticians worked on his body preparing him for his funeral. It may be ugly but racism is ugly! So yes, look at it and never forget!!!

      • Ryan Peters – slaves were brought here against their will and tortured, mistreated, killed, prevented from speaking or teaching their own language. Horrible things. Most other mass immigrants came here to flee those conditions and then when they got here they were treated as dirty and not worth the lowest job available.

        I’m irish. The irish had meat, milk, vegetables available, but those things were saved for paying the rent. When the english land owners decided it would be more profitable to keep cattle on their lands they raised the rents until the only thing the irish had to eat were potatoes. When the blight hit they starved. Then they were branded criminals for trying to find food. They weren’t allowed to read, teach or speak their own language to their children. You couldn’t get married unless you had your own land and home, but irish weren’t allowed to own land. Couldn’t vote.

        So they came here. With no funds for fare they went into “indentured servitude” voluntary slavery. It was usually 7 years for a boat trip. Most were completely illegitimate and didn’t know when 7 years was up. They kept asking and the landlords would tell them they weren’t done yet. The ones who did know when their 7 years were up were told that now they owed for board and rent for the last 7 years.

        Domestic jobs at the turn of the 20th century frequently said “irish need not apply”. They were considered dirty, drunk, bred like rabbits, “catholic”. It’s funny though. The only jobs they were good for was to take care of the drunks and criminals or going into the dangerous situtations of fighting fires. Today 2 of the most likely civilian heros are police and firefighters, and alot of them started in the military first. There are still alot of back east families that go back generations in these 2 professions.

        I have to say that I do think the jews have had things the worst. They weren’t just targeted for mass annihilation just once, but many times over 1000s of years. They’ve been targeted since bibical times.

      • It may be a disgusting picture but it’s a fact of life for African Americans. If the shoes were on the other foot and it was your family, I wonder how you would feel to have you teenage loved one murdered by a mob than thrown away like trash. You should be careful what you say unless you know what you’re talking about or the history behind what you see. A picture IS worth a thousand words…and to make it racial again shows how ignorant YOU are. It doesn’t matter who made the comments; it’s a fact of life. And yes, I’m AFRICAN AMERICAN.

      • I’m WHITE, and I find it rude of people to blame WHITES for everything that has happened in the past, not only is it rude it is immature. Many WHITE and black people are still living for the past generations when prjudice and rasicm was an everyday thing, they’re dumb! Whites Blacks Asians or Any other ethnicity has as much right as the next HUMAN!
        __What they did to that poor boy and his family, i’m sure almost everyone agrees was wrong and they deserved the punishment that they gave Emette!__

        September 22, 2010 at 12:52 pm

      • As you are an expert you must know that The White Men who killed Emmett were aided by at least 4 Black Men. One rode in the vehicle to the house that Emmett was staying at, others were present while he was being beaten. The other blacks in the area must have understood that Emmett was being reckless and causing untold amount of danger and probably would have executed him themselves to save their own hides.

      • ~I would agree. the fact that there is still racial tension in this world is digusting! this is reality and this is what the world is coming to. “killing” what if emmet didn’t mean to whistle? i mean it was 1955 and racial tension,segregation, and sterotypes was still going on espceally the hate for Black people. Also, we shouldnt be blaming one anothor by color but we should be juding each other on how we act that shows the true personality of a person1

      • @ go back to school… actually this crime was not aided by four “black men”. There was one “black boy”, age 12 (a child), that was aiding these 2 monsters. he was only restraining emmett while they were in the truck. The 12 year old was a clueless & fearful child. probably afraid for his life also. every other “black boy” that was mentioned in this crime was only an allegation. think about it, the 2 monsters that were on trial would have easily been removed and replaced w/ any black person if that was possible.. yes racism is still alive but something thats worse than racism is ignorance and stereotyping just b/c someone’s different than you… remember that God does the judging

      • My comments are to Janet and Erica. Apparently, you have never felt racism. Racism is still going on in America today. If you felt racism, you would never write these comments and seriously post them as educated thought on this website. As a African American women, I feel that whites don’t want to accept the responsibilty of saying that racism and slavery were very wrong mistakes. This is why I feel that until responsiblity is taken that there will always be a racial conflict between whites and blacks.

        Peace.

      • now, all you white people know, why black people were cheering, when o.j simpson was found not guilty of killing ,two white people.We was not cheering for o.j, we were cheering, because white people had been getting off the hook for years,for killing black people. I know two wrongs, do not make a right, but you have to put yourself in black people place, to really understand.I know a lot of white people may say, we are not responsible for slavery, and that was before our time.I am not talking about, what happened during slavery, i”m talking about what happened in the 50″s and 60″s, long after slavery was abolished, that”s when your fathers and grandfathers, could have helped, to make a change. We had to march, protest,and boycott, to get our equal rights.white people, have always had ,their rights. So, if you are not black, then you cannot fully understand, the plight of black people. I hear some white people, calling black people,inhumane names and other things. Now, what could be more inhumane, than slavery. The thought of one human being,owning another, is just about, low as you can go. you cannot go any lower, than that.I would never, ever, want to have power of that nature, over another human.So when you get to calling, black people names, just think of who is really low, and inhumane. Think about yourself.Now, with that being said, we all have to put our differences aside, and learn to get along, with one another, because were all, is here to stay. god created each and every one of us, in his own creation.

    • These are actual pictures of the 14 year old boy who was killed in Mississippi before there were actual equal rights. It may be disgusting… but can you imagine your mother having to see you like this when 2 weeks earlier she kissed you good bye and put you on a train to go visit family? And to top it all- ther murderers got away with this. Sickening.

Cause it was disgusting. It was disgusting what racism does. You are ignorant, Saying disgusting is not a manner of growing up. It’s fucking freedom of speech and i have the freedom of speech to tell you the shut the fuck up because by argument you are wrong, because Thats the reason they have this picture to smack racism in the face. You acting like you know what your talking about man shut the fuck up you should think before you speak.

      • you know what else is still going on? Black filthy mouthed men that speak to ALL women in ways they should have their tongues cut out. They even talk to black women like hoes and bitches and you black women put up with it. Why? This is part of the reason white men didnt want black men around their white women and it is still the same today but worse. Now the black men record their filthy words on dvds and call it music. They act and sound like freakin animals. I will never understand why you black women put up with men treating you like they do.They show no respect.

    • You know it’s amazing at this day and age that people still have no sense of MORALS, how did a picture turn into a race card? Yes the boy was black and yes he was killed by white men but reality is he was a 14 year old child period! I don’t think his color really plays a factor here right now. This was a child not an adult that was tortured and killed!!! His mother allowed pictures to be taken to show what was done to a child not a black child! The LORD loves all of us no matter what color and until you people find GOD you will continue to be ignorant and lost!! I pray for all of ignorance posted and i also pray that you never have to go thru or witness what this mother had to!

    • I’ll say this “with the hope that Zach Younkin did’nt intend on his comment to come off as idiotic”, this image is as what he is viewing it to be in the sence of the condition of the young man not in the sence of the young man being black. Today so many pepole ‘Black pepole’ come off with the defence using race as a crutch, instead of using it as crutch use it as power. We are the first to say we can’t get a chance because we are black and the last to take the roll of a winner given a chance. Chance was given to us threw the images we look back on such as Emmett Till or Mr.Obama, the debate on blacks not given a chance or being held back for being black is to me a hammered reason for those who so openly prepose black being the reason for thier sorrow. I’m a black woman and am pround and admit that any chance or opportunity given to me was not taken because I did’nt want it, however it was given to me as it was to our now black president… So who is ignorant you or Zach Younkin?

      • Since the 1960″s till the present (50+ years)there have been every kind of minority oppotunity laws made from A-Z for the benefit of (blacks only) to get educated and over-educated (for free) and job opportunities that white people were not eligible for because the companies have to hire a quota of minority black people for these jobs. If the black community really wanted to get ahead and take on good careers and make lots of money, success, prestige, integrity, fame and fortune, the chances are better for you than any other race in the country. Are we ever going to see that happen? I can only hope that Barrack Obamas success will give your people more hope to try for whats obtainable for anyone who is willing to (WORK FOR IT). It does take hard work, years of school, and disipline but many people do it everyday. So, you cannot use the excuse that anyone is holding the “black man down” because it isnt true!! I live in Memphis Tennessee (Where Martin Luther King was assissinated and Elvis Presley lived) and I know what you are offered because I cannot get what is offered to you because I’m white but I still dont see the blacks breaking down the doors of the colleges to get in for free or taking the great government and state job offers held open just for them. I see reverse prejudice everyday of my life. I was born here and have lived here all of my life. So, I dont fall for the sob stories and I just figure theres laziness involved if you cant make something of yourself today.

      June 14, 2011 at 12:23 am

    • Zach, you need to read and understand the history why this picture is out there. The reason he had an open casket during his showing is because his mother wanted everyone in the world to see what segregration and prejudice believes looks like in real life. This boy was beaten and tortured for hours and hours before they finally tied a large machine wheel to his neck and threw him into a river. Believe me, this picture looks good compared to when they pulled him from the river. Another thing, after reading many of the blogs below this one, it amazes me how, for good or bad, everyone wants to attack anyone that says anything that goes against what their feel and believe. Everyone needs to remember that people have the RIGHT to say what they want because speech that you agree with isn’t the only protected speech in this country. People like Janet below here, making a comment “you must be an idiot…or black” is better to know how she really feels then to have her keep it inside and you are not sure where she stands on things. I don’t like what she said either, but as someone that served this country in the military, I have been to other countries that would have done to them, what was done to Emmett Till, for saying half of what they said. But on the other side of that, just because you have the right to speak freely in this country, that dosen’t mean there isn’t consequences. As an example, you can’t expect to go into your work and say things about your boss and not be fired. You are protected by law not to be put in jail but it doesn’t protect you from losing your job. Same here, Janet needs to understand that you can say what you want but it doesn’t mean you will not be attacked.

I discovered this a week ago when I visited the museum. And now we’ve got an idiot named Zimmerman in Florida killing a young black kid unprovoked. Which goes to prove that many of the dumbass crackers in Dicksie haven’t evolved one iota in the last half century.

    • No one deserves this type of abuse no matter what they did and especially for whistling at a white woman, The body was not created for that type of abuse, God created a body for Jesus to withstand his abusers for the purpose and plan that he had to demolish evil,those white demons or should I say animals didnot get away with this punishment by far they both died of cancer at an early age and one was made blind, and if they had not repented before they died, I assure you that they are burning in a fiery pit of hell, While Emmitt till is singing with the angels, believe that God heard his cry when he cried out Lord have Mercy! May God have mercy on those demonic souls that did this! God bless The black race superior by far than any race and my black is Beautiful!

  6. I have looked at articles and heard stories about Emmett Till’s death, but I have never been impacted by his story as when I saw this picture. I think it is important for all of us to study photos like this to recognize them as historical documents if the not so distant past. May nothing as horrible as dipicted in this sad picture ever happen to a person again.

  8. Having studied Emmett Till in my A Level history, I have been told of how he was murdered and the so called “reasons” that Bryant and Milam gave in their defence. Previously before seeing this image, I was shocked at their actions and appalled that anyone would commit such an outrageous act.This image has effected me in the way that I feel as if I knew Emmett Till and I can imagine how his mother felt- to some degree. No-one can committ this inhumane act and get away with it nowadays, so why should they have been allowed at that time, just because of whites thinking they were superior. It is disappointing to know that the human race allowed his murderers to have lawyers present at his case, fighting for their “innocence”.

And she had the nerve to use her real name to boot, “Unknown.” Furthermore, how can you see a photograph such as this one of the complete and utter destruction of a human being and your only response is to nit-pick someone’s grammar. For shame.

      • You can’t rely on anyone to truly “educate” you. And why should anyone (especially of another race) be responsible, or even interested, in spoon-feeding you your history? Knowledge will emancipate you. It is much preferred that you have no dignity or self-respect and continue to walk around with your underwear showing, calling yourself an “n’. You are harmless then. You can populate the jails, if nothing else.

    • Emmetts’ mother purposely kept the casket open. That way people were no longer sheltered to the brutality of these animals.
      With that in mind, the kkk covered themselves with sheets and at rallies covered their license plates with black tape to avoid being identified. So why would the “Invisible Empire” hide from something they so strongly believed in.

      Just a question

      October 11, 2010 at 4:12 pm

      • The hatefulness will continue to grow wherever it’s tolerated. But violence only begets more violence, one form of hate won’t trump another.
        The photo is shocking and just what a complacent society needs to be reminded of. A young man of 14 could do nothing to warrant that kind of brutality. Compassion for the mother and the boy and contempt and disgust at the men and the system that inflicted this harm would be the norm.
        The comments from anonymous hateful individuals speaks volumes of their cowardice and social ineptitude but there will always be that minority out there. Please don’t assume they represent the majority of society whatever the color of our skin.

With that in mind, the KKK covered themselves with sheets and at rallies covered thier license plates with black tape to avoid being identified. So why would the “invisible Empire” hide from somethign they so strongly believed in?” Can’t say much more other than listen to most of the responces on this forum, there is no respect for even the foundation on which this image is built from and you all have the nerve to question, comment, and reply with such filth. It is clear that most of you have missed the mark and will never get it, seems like another opportunity given and turned away.

One was robbed, one was shot in the back trying to leave and the third one was shot over the gas pump usage arguement (energy crisis 1970′s). Have any of you black people ever had your black friends killed by white people????? I’d really like to know and then we can talk about whats right and whats wrong.

You will see that many men were ujustly hung and women and children being raped. It was o-k for the white men to disrespect Blacks in any form or fashion. Emmitt Till is just one example of the mind of a discrimination. This controlling bull-shit started with slavery when the master of the plantation used fear to control slaves. We are free but, not free from injustice.

      • Aside from the nonsensical nature of your comment, I’d like to comment on your persistent use of the phrase “black power.” In your pseudonym, you claim to not be a racist. Thus, I pose to you the following question: is someone who supports “white power” a racist in your eyes? How about “Asian power,” or “Hispanic power?” If your answer to any one of these three is “yes,” then perhaps you should think carefully about your words.

        November 4, 2010 at 6:38 pm

      • “Common Sense” I didnt understand a word that “Stephanie Arnold” said. Thankfully you interpreted it for the english speaking people on the site. There is no way she will EVER get a decent job until she learns how to speak correctly. What a shame. I used to screen interviews for my boss and I would have drunks, mom’s with their babies, women in pajamas and especially houseshoes, guys reeking of pot and so red eyed they couldnt see, some come in with hat all cocked to the side, flaming gold teeth, and pants down to their knees and the attitude that goes with it, expecting to have a walk-in interview. It’s so sad. Instead of trying to be a bad-ass and fight, fight, fight, why not try to be a smart-ass and go to school, school, school? A few years of hard work and then you can have an easy job and do barely nothing and make tons of legal money. Thats the way to do it, I promise it works and it keeps you out of jail. There are so many people in the black culture that believe that going to jail is a street credit or a great thing for your reputation. What you don’t know is that for the rest of your life, this arrest or conviction will show up EVERYWHERE you try to do ANYTHING and will stop you in your tracks. It wont be white people stopping you, it will be your own convictions stopping you. Where will your “peeps” be when youre trying to get a job, or a car or a house or any kind of credit, even insurance, for you family later on in life? They cant help you then and they probably wont even remember your name and look what street credit did for you, stopped you in your tracks of life.

  15. Emmit Till’s story touches my heart deeply. I am originally from Maryland but I worked in Southern Mississippi as a Union Representative at three poultry processing plants. The production workers are predominately 85% African American amonst the 2000 hourly employees we represent.

    There was a tremendous hatred that was taught and engrained in generations of Mississippians back then. And being from the North, I am sad to say that even today (Janurary 4, 2010) that there is still many, many white Mississippians who linger within their minds a white superior mentality that is insensitive towards the African Americans as workers.

    There are still so many injustices done to the minority workder in these poultry processing plant. As a Union Representative, I address many of their issues and complaints to predominate white management that are issues that don’t allow the Black to be human beings to do what humans need to do such as use the bathroom to expulsion of feces or relieve themselves to urinate. The white supervion mentality is wrong in many areas of allowing fairness in the workplace and here is still much work to be done in Mississippi to bring racial equality to the forefront.

    The Blacks have traveld a difficult and long journey over the decades to gain more respect and dignity. I thank our heavenly Father that we have come and a long distance to where we come from. May He bless the family of Emmit Till as he truly was a sacrifical lamb that inspired the civil rights movement greatly escalate as his story touched most every American’s heart.

      • I don’t agree with what they did to Emmitt Till but you have to understand that way back in those days, what he said to her was “Bye Baby” and Whistled. What those words and actions meant or translated to in those days, is that he said out loud that he wanted to “f… her” when he said “bye baby” and that “she was sexy” when he whistled at her. People in those days didn’t even say the word “sex or f…” in front of women or children, just men talked among themselves. What he did and said was taken as nasty, filthy and degrading to the honor of a “lady”. Even a white guy doing that would have probably been attacked too but probably not killed. White people in the south had been brainwashed to be superior and black people had been brainwashed to be inferior. Speaking of sex in public was a “NO NO”. Until many generations go by, maybe another 100 years, this will not completely go away.

  29. This is just heartbreaking. I try to imagine myself in his shoes, feeling every blow, kick, and even imagine the thoughts going through his head when it was being done. I try to imagine how his mother felt seeing her son like that and even how her loss felt. I am a single mother of a son, and it kills me just thinking of myself in that situation. Even today in 2010 this tragedy is heartbreaking. I’m just happy she finally with her son again. And for the record Emmitt was not castrated, as it is rumored.

  41. Wow this is such bull man, the kid whistled at a white married women, which may be wrong but there are two possibilities: one, he didn’t even know she was married, or two, he was just a kid and all kids do stupid stuff such as this. But to actually beat and murder him is nothing short of pure racist crap. But even worse than murdering the child was the fact that these men where charged not guilty? They confessed to actually doing the murder and still got away. America your south end is like a gutter; dirty, disgusting, and, for the most part, avoided. Why? because your sick people, during this time, and even still now, killed an innocent boy for sheer enjoyment. It makes me feel so sick that i wish you were just removed entirely from the face of the Earth. However, I forgive you,(I’m a Jehovah’s Witness and even though most of you probably won’t read anything further than this I will continue) because I have learned that the past is the past and we have to move on, but there is nothing wrong with trying to improve the future, and hopefully, I cannot say for sure, YOU will be imparted of your sick manner and never again will such atrocities be repeated. For this to happen there is that solution or entirely obliterating you sick, dumb, senseless people. I will live a better life believing this, but for now I cannot do or say much, yet, but when it comes the time I can I will make sure, as much as I can, you people, yea I’m sort of being racist’, will not be allowed to do this. If it comes down to it you will receive the message of God and stop believing that you are the best people in the world because really you are stupid, one most of you southerners marry your own relatives, if anything blacks are even better than you and you should respect that not kill them just because you can, with twenty people behind your back. So to put it simply you are WRONG!!!. We are all the same; and the sooner you accept that the faster we can move on, and peace, hopefully, will win out. Peace my brothers and sisters, I pray for all you of other races, and hope that the one true God Jehovah will help you in any way possible.

    ,Thank you

    • To jehoviah witness: You say black ppl are better than whites, which is not true. you say all southern whites marry their relatives, which is not true. It all comes down to BEHAVIOR.If black ppl would behave themselves, follow rules, graduate high school and college,read something, read a few books for example(gee what a novel idea), concentrate on learning instead of blaming old dead ppl from generations 55 years ago saying “this is why their in the situation their in 2011?” WHAT???(give me a freaking break), why don’t you try a different approach like working or opening your own businesses so “THE MAN” can’t hold you back, instead of rob, rape and murder in their “gang family” bullshit, then all other races wouldn’t mind being around black ppl. But as it stands, even today, the reason ppl of ALL RACES avoid living around black ppl is because mainly of their MISBEHAVIOR!!!! You know it, they know it, everyone knows it. Wheither or not blacks will admit it or not is another story. That is the main problem is their bad behavior. Period!!

      • I’ve been reading a lot of these ignorant comments from both black and white, but Tanya, your comments strike my heart the most. One you generalize all black people by saying that most of us are uneducated, lazy, and always blaming ” the white man”, yet you get upset about blacks generalizing all whites as being racist. Two, you try justifying the deaths of black people who were killed by whites, and clearly marked as being hate crimes by bringing up these friend of yours who were killed by black men. Honestly I doubt if they killed them because they were white, because in the world we live in a black man would kil his own before another race. Third, you have no authority or place to say what we, yes we, as blacks do and don’t do, or what we need to do, because you are not black, simple as that. As for Affirmative Action or what you and others like you so dearly refer to as reverse racism, then it was ,needed and actually paved the way for blacks with potential and drive to succeed, as for now we have the means to do what we need to do succeed, do a lot of us take the opportunities? No, and for that reason our race suffers. I really do hope you change your way of thinking because your comments have ample remnants of racism and prejudice, and its people like you who deny racism exists. If you continue to ignore an issue, it will never make it go away.

  42. I am also revisiting the story and yes it was the catalyst that pushed the Civil Rights forward. But here is one thing I read, June 13, 2005 the American Government apoligized for allowing 4,700 people from 1882 until 1968 to be LYNCHED!!!! Yes Emmett Till was ONE of MANY.

    What are we doing to stop the injustices TODAY? Are blacks more educated? Do they have decent Jobs? Is discrimination still Rampant? Are there drugs and guns in our communities? What are we doing about these and other problems that plague our nation?

    Sad to say, LYNCHINGS still occur in 2010.

Do you not think the white man was just trying to make conversation? of course he knew she didnt grow the stupid strawberries. See, thats the problem with blacks, taking every little thing personally. Do you think ppl want to hire someone with a freaking chip on shoulder and a bad attitude? Hell to the no we dont. You blacks keep yourselves unemployable not the whites and no other race. you do it to yourselves, period. Blacks exibit bad unexceptable behavior and in turn ppl do not want to associate with you. Its your own fault. its been 55 years since this happened. you have been freed from slavery over 100 years and what have you done with that freedom. blame game, acting like animals. youve created your own slavery life.

  45. I am up and i just happened to come across the song “a change gonna come” by sam cooke. I love the song but it makes me cry because i heard what happened to Emmit till. My instructor showed us a clip of his death how he use to look and than some. I was very shocked and turned off at the sametime from the song. I was soo happy listening to the song because i liked it, but when i saw the pictures and the story i bout died. I remember that day when i saw it, i feltless of a woman and more of a “nigger”, a dirty nigger, because thas how they looked at us and i feel somee still look at me like that now to this day! True Story, I was in the most uppidity up mall in charlotte nc, and me and my boyfriend was walking around, and we were dressed down. I had on my favorite black shirt with “WHITE” writing that said “My Black Is Beautiful” on the back it said “Its Time To Talk”! Now i wasnt paying it any attention but my boyfriend said that a white lady saw it and gave this i dont believe her someone should smack her look, i got something to tell my white racist friends later… you know?? I mean, i didnt mean for it to give off a bad message but people gotta undersrtand it was mixed people back than and its alot of that now! I am white black puerto rican and cuban, so i rep all of me not just one, i just happen to like that shirt! But hey, I am not mad but i am sad and i wish this never happened to him. I love him and i dont eve know him, i love him like family like my brother! i mean, he didnt have to get killed over that! NO WAY! But as his mother said he did what he was put here to do… which was show people how ugly hatred really is! its very freaking ugly! He had to die ugly for the world to see, and now we are actually living with better rights and lives. I like to say white and blacks get along little better now! Yes, there are some who cant stand us still and prob wanna take a medal bat oe whip to our heads and backs, but ha ha in the name of jesus i rebuke you, things are better and your heart will give in to the lord you will love everyone no matter the color.. you might have a little dislike but hate, no no, no, you will pay for that in the end! Its not my place nor is it anybody elses to say how and when but he will let you know trust! I happento come across this and was happy and relieved people are acknowledging this and writing there opinions, by all means speak up, i am! I sat here and cried for 2 hours reading and reading and finally now i am writing. I listened to that song by sam cooke maadd times and it brings me to tears each time. I pray noone does that to my daughter ever not even just raping her, NOTHING! I want her safe untill god calls her home. She is in a wheel chair and has hydrocephalus,seizures,asthma,choking spells,near sided,non mobile,loss of hearing completely in left ear, and has a tube from her head down her neck to her tummy, so im taking care of her for the man above until he saids hes reasy for her. Everybody be blessed and keep Emmit till in your prayers, no matter that he has passed on his soul is still with us! As i said i didnt know him but i feel i did and i am happy his mother finally got her peace that she was looking for… thank you..

    • oh your not mad or anything but you wanted to smack the white woman. What? Why? every other race that has been slaves and lives in America and other countries as well, have moved on, gotten educated, started businesses, work and live civilized. They don’t continually live off of the welfare system and blame “The White Man” for their lazy ways. Quit with your stupid revenge and get on with your lives. If not, you will always be slaves!

      February 22, 2011 at 10:16 pm

      • @Tanya, peace be with you dear. You misunderstood what you read. It reads, “my boyfriend said that a white lady saw it and gave this i dont believe her someone should smack her look.” That means, the lady gave her such a look. I read another post of yours where you were critical of someone’s spelling. Is not being able to comprehend what you’ve read any better?

        Be quick to listen, and slow to speak.

        To those of us killing each other with words…are we being any better than those of us that kill each other with weapons? A wound inflicted verbally, is deeper than any wound inflicted physically. Most physical wounds heal. When judgement day comes, AND IT WILL, Jehovah isn’t going to consider how big or small your sins are! Sin is sin! A murderer is no different than a liar in Jehovah’s eyes! Food for thought.

        If anyone is offended by my words, allow me to apologize right now, as that was in no way my intention. Emmett Till’s horrible execution was one of many symptoms of this system of things. @Tanya, my heartfelt condolences to your friends who met similar fates. But all people of color did not do that. Just as all white people did not kill the young Mr. Till.

        I LOVE YOU ALL, BECAUSE I AM REQUIRED BY JEHOVAH GOD, TO DO SO!

  47. That is the true face of hatred. What’s even worse is that the killers got away with it(because of an all white, all male jury) and went on to admit that they did it, but could not be recharged because of double jeopardy rules.

    BTW religious people need to stop with the “let God handle it” crap. I’m sure if this was your son you wouldn’t be talking that shit. Me personally, if it was my relative I would have hunted these fuckers down and feed them their own testicles. I would gladly go to hell(if there is such a place) to make sure that they know that this sort of thing is not acceptable. And I’m not even a violent person.

    When they go crazy you have to go crazy too.

Where is the love, then and now? Emitt was an innocent young man and his death was senseless! Not to sound ignorant, but the murders should burn in hell for doing that to a child. My heart goes out to his family, especially his mother…may she R.I.P.

  76. Note that this body was decomposing in the Tallahatchie River three days before being fished out. What he did to Carolyn Bryant is still disputed, but it was no worse than grabbing her and making sexual talk to her. Nevertheless, she got all upset and told her husband and things went pretty predictably from there. Why Carolyn Bryant couldn’t let Emmett have a little fun is beyond me. Practically speaking, she’s the one responsible for the whole mess.

  78. Whats so special about white women anyway. Most of them are easy whores. Girls Gone Wild. Most of them portray themselves as prostitutes. They dominate the Porn industry! So fucking what if he whistled at one.. she wanted to know what it was about anyway.. I hope everyone involved burns in hell! Especially her.. Had that child killed for nothing. She was probably fucking both the brothers involved (her husband and her brother-in-law!) cousin fuckers from ole Miss. Makes me sick!When all them old ass crackers die who think like this and some of the young ones this will be a better place!

    • I love how us white people get in deep shit for being racist, but when some black person like you opens their mouth saying all white women are whores and we’re crackers, nothing happens. it’s like words are only racist when they’re aimed at black people. You’re also pretty damn ignorant because when most white people (like me) look at this, we think, “jesus christ those fucking scumbags should have their balls cut off for what they did.” or something like that

    • why dont all you black ppl go form your own solid only black city and all us whites will jump for joy. every black in america can go to that one city and you can all sit together and bad mouth every white person that ever lived. after reading these blogs from black ppl, man, i tell you what, if i ever thought that any one was racist, it’s definitely black ppl. actually i think you use it as an excuse to be lazy and do nothing but have babies for a free meal ticket, rent, food, utilities. all your daughters are told to go out and get pregnant before they hit 18 to have a baby meal ticket. just watch the movie “precious” and her mama. we would happily set up an all black city and state, for that matter,even possibly pay all your bills for you, but you would all have to go live there and stay out of our lives. yay! you would have it made and so would we!!!

No Great War of Northern Aggression,
        no Brown vs. Board of Education (annoying process wasn’t it) no Panthers, no BET, and all we would have is a great solid history of assorted white folks bucklin down and getting the hard work done. imagine that, in Memphis yall would still be livin in good old log cabins in the woods and eatin assorted varmints.

    • To Mizz B. This is why white people dont want black people around, especially nasty ass, fithly ass, disgusting talking black men, any where around us. THIS is why much of the racist problems against blacks are caused by. But NOW we have the black women acting just like the uncontrolled black men. Whites always knew that most free blacks would act like freaking filthy sex crazed killing animals and thats exactly whats happened to the uneducated black community. Not only do you kill other races, but you kill even more of your own race. Its like your crazy or something. Ive never seen anything like it. Like animals.

      • Wow Tanya you never cease to amaze me! Your sarcastic remarks are going to get you in serious trouble, but of course the things you’re saying on this site you wouldn’t say in a room of african americans, would you? I know you wouldn’t. I’m sure you’d hide behind the walls and comfort of your own home with your friends, not necessarily white friends, but friends who would condone this ignorant mess you post behind a computer screen. You’re so quick to throw up ” black statistics” like number of blacks in jail, pregnancy rates among black teens, and how blacks use the system. But let me open your eyes a little bit…. You know the show 16 and pregnant? Who do they mostly portray? Hmmmm? Mostly white girls right? Poor, hick town, trailer trash AND rich, captain of the cheerleading team who’s had everything handed to them on a silver platter. And about these lazy blacks milking the system? Hmmm…. ” the system” was made for whites honey! Teddy Roosevelt and the New Deal brought the ideal of welfare to the forefront.right arrr the Gray Depression. Blacks didn’t primarily have access to this! We weren’t ALLOWED! Even though mostly whites were living it up in the Age of Excess, and spending money like it grew on trees….We just got hip! And once many blacks started to become part of the system, it started to become ” frowned” upon. Any who! Next point, the issue of blacks in jail…. Lets think long and hard about this…. Men and women who were thrown in jail for crimes they didn’t do just because of their skin color…. they’ve been licked up for caged animals so long that when they do get out their mentality is all effed up, can’t get jobs, and start living lives that get then pr back in jail. Before you start to condemn a race on their behavior, take some time to think why we behave the way we do. Hundreds of years of feeling inferior doesn’t go away overnight, instead it gets passed down from generation to generation, to the point we start to act on the feelings of inferiority. SADLY, Willie Lynch did what he set out to do. And as we know it, his mission is being accomplished, and for that we as a race are to blame. To let arrogant, bigoted, self hating racists like yourself, I’m sorry, or people you may know, to get in our heads and subliminally tell us we are not worth two flies smashed.

    • I am a 13 year old white boy who was told about Emmett at a history lesson at school. I think it is totally sick that two men could do such a thing to an innocent young boy. I am really annoyed that the men who did this were not punished even worse that they made money out of confessing to this awful crime. It wasn’t even a fair trial as everyone on the jury was white. If I was the judge I would have sent them to prison for life. R.I.P Emmett Till. I respect Emmett for his bravery and his death will be remembered for starting the civils rights movement.

  95. Emmett Tills’ story is an eye opener and a reminder of the fate of many blacks young and old alike during that era. Many faced the same fate only to have the courts add insult to injury. Stories like this one should always be in our subconsciousness, regardless of race, keeping everybody on there toes, eliminating insensitive comments and judgement. A person cant pretend to be better than me if I know all the dirt hes’done. Think about it………

  96. Emmett Till was a a African American who was killed. to see some of the cmments that people have put on here it’s sad. It doesn’t matter if your white or black. This was a child who was killed over something that was not cause for. to see the comments grown-ups have put on here is very rude and disrespectful to all races white or black,and to be using such language. How can you stand for something that you think that is wrong and the way you are handling racial comments are out of line i am 14 years old and i cant see that happening to me, and what those 12 men did to Till was wrong and im not going to blame every white person for what 12 men did. it looks bad because my mother taught me better. – African American 14 year old girl

  103. Im an african-italian living in africa and im astounded at the degree of rascism on display here. So much so that a few people seem to have forgotten what the issue is. We all do well to remember the Tragedy of Emmet Till but we should not use as an excuse to vent whatever pent up aggression we may have towards whites. Instead, reflect on how far america has come since and how YOU can pick up from where the Civil Rights Movement left off. to all my africans on the continent and in the diaspora of pure and mixed race..men and women..Ujama! and Amandla!

  104. Sadly the hatred still goes on right here on this page. We should all unite to NEVER NEVER let this happen to anyone.
    It infuriates me to think that people are that demonic to have the ability to do this kind of thing. But the way some of you talk right here seems like you are no different. How will lashing out at each other help this cause? Hate is learned. Make this world better please: it is horrible enough without any more contributions of evil. LOVE YOUR ENEMY! I will not be held prisoner for eternity by such actions but instead be filled with purpose to prevent them. If people can be taught to love and forgive, this world would be incredible.One example is of a TX woman whose son was murdered. She reached out to that boy and showed him the love he never knew. She didn’t say it was OK to kill but forgiveness is a supernatural thing. Love changes people for good if you allow it to work.

  105. I must say however the murder of Emmett Till is truly gruesome, however Blacks who have commented on this page, should not make dehumanized responses against WHITES! It is not acceptable. Unlike before and after the civil war, slavery, and so forth up to now-Racism is no longer a national problem for the United States. I am African American and Blackfoot Indian, yet I do not feel a certain way towards Whites! I have some white friends and they are amazing. Its not their fault now for them to face tensions from Blacks that ocurred decades ago. Its not the race, its the the people that have acted out against the law. Lynchings today are a felony in all states in the United States. Im reading the comments from Blacks- which I see some are very ignorant-and misspelling countless words- that is unacceptable..and of course adds to the sterotypical roles that you cannot spell..smh..Civil Rights movements increased progress for Blacks-there are Blacks lawyers..docters..police officers…firefighters n etc…Race is no longer a matter in U.S Society…I, myself is currently attending John Jay College of Criminal Justice as a Junior-majoring in Criminal Justice-Concentration E-Crime and Society-passed NYPD exam..so basically we should live in dignity and respect towards all race..Work on prospering for yourself instead of misspelling b.s and speaking “ghetto” “slang” that half of you do not have the full knowledge..peace n love <3

    • Saying racial stuff like that doesn’t help anyone. You are no diffrent than anyone else, so saying stuff like that just proves that your just immature. I mean what makes YOU diffrent than anyone else? What gives you the right to say cruel things like that? Nothing. Nothing gives you the right to make fun of people just because of their color, race, or religion. If you wanna be “diffrent” than start by not making fun of people. Everyone deserves second chances, but no one deserves to be beaten, murdered, or made fun of, no matter what race.

To think a beating wasnt good enough u had to warp barb wire around his neck nd with a metal fan throw his body nd the water..How dare u say thats DISGUSTING.. no thats sad only for speaking to a white woman, when white men was rapping us blacks all the time, nd notthing gets done to them no punishment they juss had to take it, the woman nd her husband.. how dare some of u whites, how dare you!!!!….

    • thats right there arent many racist white people now but there sure are alot more racist black people than whites. Even worse, there are so many uneducated black racist that dont work. As the bible says “idle hands are the devils workshop” which means if you do not work, you have too much time on your hands and what you, many times, wind up doing is evil things, when you do not work, like hatred, revenge, dealing drugs, pimping, prostituting, gang banging, stealing, robbing, killing etc…so get a job!!!!go to school!!!Mainly, Go to Church!!! You will have a very fulfilling life if you do.

  126. I find this picture not disgusting, but horrifying. The thought that some people could even have the will to do this and sell their story like they are proud of what they had done. The fact that America let this happen to an innocent young man. The fact that just because his skin was of a darker shade he didn’t get the same decency and justice of that of a white man. It sickens me what America was, and I am so thankful now that although we still have racism that everyone has their equal right regardless of color. Just be thankful that although we still have a lot of problems today; that nothing like this would go unseen or unheard of without the men being founded guilty. No one in their right mind would let the men who did this walk free. And I think if you’re all going to argue on here, you might possibly want to stop and think about all the pain his family went through, all the pain America when through having heard of this, and how much change has happened over the years. What I really feel disgusted about is that you people are arguing so ignorantly under a brutally murdered boys photo; regardless of whose “fault” it was, no one ever deserves this kind of pain.

  127. do half of you not realise what you are saying.Like this 14 year old boy,a boy not a black boy,just a boy was murdered by men,forget about white and stuff.This murder took place in 1955 in america,a country that was so far ahead compared to other countries around the world.Its unthinkable to imagine that black people got rights basically until the 70′s.Ireland,where I’m from had no such thing as racial issues since the times before christ and never had since.These Brehon Laws were written up in pagan times and went on to inspire all the worlds major ancient civilisations such as the Egyptians.It obvious the “americans” never payed attention to these.It is funny and totally ironic that white southern americans went on about being superior and having Pride in their country and being all american.But what is an american,they are european settlers a majority of which came from germany and ireland-two mainly catholic countries.The irony is that the KKK which go on non stop about being american and white power and all that sheer rubbish hate catholics,although they use the Nazi beliefs and salute even though Hitler was a Catholic,they hate blacks and believe they are superior,even though human species first developed in africa and went on to populate the world,neanderthals settled in europe-a fundamentally inferior species to us humans today-because of inter breeding.Anyway my point is that neaderthals(european) were inferior to homo sapiens(africa).The europeans went on to populate the america we see today,and the KKK believe their superiority is because they used africans as slaves,its very ironic however that the KKK are the biggest contradiction since Mussolini and no one else sees that,and its crazy to think that racism is still going on today in some countries that are “superior”-in wealth yes,but in education and identity no.

  130. I was totally shocked by what I have found in my research of this young man. He was just a kid people…do you really think HE would appreciate all of the bickering y’all are doing over this. I agree that it is very important because it brought the world’s attention to what was happening here in our country. As for being “disgusting”, the only thing “disgusting” is what they did to him. He did not deserve that he was a kid!!! Like I read in one of your posts… he was someone’s baby. I am a White Christian female in case y’all want to know, and the Lord made us ALL. He doesn’t have a color preference, why should we???

  131. It is terrible that a young boy died as a result of some benign comments. It is also terrible that his mother would even contemplate sending him to such a racially divided part of the country. One would not consider parading a barley clothed woman through a penitentiary regardless of the progressiveness of the times or laws protecting people from harm – some people just do not care about possible ramifications. Furthermore, it is unfortunate that this boy was foolish enough to believe that his newfound equality provided him with a shield against the bigotry of the time.

  132. I don’t think anyone of any race deserves to be horrifically tortured and then brutally murdered and dumped like a bag of garbage.
    Many people have been/still are going through atrocities just because of their race. It still happens today and it won’t end…but what we can all do is support each other, help eachother out, stop teaching our children to hate others…I hate that I live in a world, share oxygen with people who can look at this picture of 14 year old Emmett Till and have snide disgusting remarks to his appearance, to blaming his mom for letting him live in the south.
    Why can’t you guys have some sympathy? Can’t you reverse roles with those innocents who have been killed? Put your shoes in their place, ponder what you would think, what your family would think and go through…can’t you try and see it that way? How about looking at your brother, child, significant other and wonder what you’d feel if they were the ones going through this…

You’re quick to mention how divorces are more likely not to end for black families. Where did you get this data from? You seem to know a lot, so can you explain why prisons are mostly filled with black people? Can you explain why black girls have a higher pregnancy rate at earlier ages? Can you explain black men wear their pants down to their thighs exposing their boxers? Please, share some more of your vast knowledge.

    What a loving mother! You can tell how much she cared for her son, who was murdered by an enraged husband because Till made rude sexual comments to his young wife in a public place. Yes, you can tell how much that mother loved her son Emmitt, raising a son who can do something like that! How is this dead rude boy and his exploitative mother a hero to anyone?

  154. I started to research the Emmett Till case because the eighth graders across the hall are learning about it in English class. Their teacher is bringing light to the subject and allowing them to establish their own perspectives and opinions about the subject matter. We are all different, no doubt, however; we are all alike, as well. Whether you are a creationist, believing Jehovah God has put us on this earth, or an evolutionist, believing we have evolved and adpted to our environment, it goes without saying that it is neither the right nor authority of anyone to remove another human being’s life from it’s existence without “just” cause and this was no just cause. As I sat and read the comments posted here, I become disturbed and saddened. A heinous and gruesome crime indeed, one for which there should have been, and nonetheless, will be repremand. However, the issue I find most pressing is what is happening in these posts. The racism and hatred freshly poured into your cup of words, alive and well. It scares me. It causes a deep lump in my throat as I hold back tears of disbelief. I am an African American female, a black girl, or a nigger. However you choose to view me. I am also intelligent, strong-minded, determined, and successful because that’s how I choose to view me. I understand that it is because of the struggles, the losses, and the victories of my people and All those who’ve participated in Civil Right’s movements, that I have the opportunities granted me today. Emmett Till had no idea he was going to die on that trip. He was no hero. (Hear me out) He was a 14 year old child who was brutally murdered at the hands of adult men over foolishness. His legacy, however, and the vivid images with which we are presented bring to the forefront the realities of life. The stories we will hear and those we will not. The images over which we will mourn and the overwhelming feelings of why and how. Regardless of circumstance, position, or reason, these types of injustices should not bring us back to the beginning, but move us forward towards our future. The one that we make. Instead of writing ridiculously with made up words and spellings, dispell the stereotypes. Instead of using profanity and vulgarities, dispell the stereotypes! Instead of getting mad that someone disagrees with you like a child does, DISPELL THE STEREOTYPES!! Stop arguing with one another and decide today…What Are You Going To Do To Change Our Future? How Will You Contribute To The Good of Mankind? and if you’re betting on complaining and pointless debating over moot points, understand you’re no better than any other random faceless user on this site with just words to write, but nothing to say. We have come a long way, but we have not arrived. You are better than this, you are great, beacuse that’s how we were all designed. To the white supremicists, KKK participants, and racists of the group. When you go home tonight, take a good look at your mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters, daughters, sons, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, husbands, and wives. Take a good, long, hard look at the people you love, close your eyes, and kill them in your mind. For no good reason, with no just cause, just because. Imagine them gone, forever. No goodbyes, no i love yous, no anything, just gone. You may hate me and somehow without even knowing me wish death upon my life, but when you open your eyes and your family is still alive, happy, and free, understand that’s a luxary and a blessing that was stolen from too many of us. Make up for the hate you have for me with the love you have for them and may Jehovah God have mercy and forgiveness upon Our souls…because I hate you too.

  155. OOOOOOOK the first thing i want to say is that im a 17 year old mixed (black, white and latin american) girl who had to sit in class and learn about Emmett Till’s biography its crazy how everything most of you are saying is coming out of the open and i understand why, you want to get it off your chest but now its my turn. im sick and tired of white people thinking they still run blacks when they really dont nither do blacks or anyone else for that matter. we run our on lives. Emmett Till was innocent well from wht some say as of from his mother and some family he didnt or wasnt talking nor ackownledging the white female. yall can come on here and speak bad about him our ea other but until your in his shoes or came from that time then just shut up. to me Emmett Till is my hero because he had to go through a lot before his death and all yall are doing is argueing about and putting him n vain instead of praising him and speaking good about him. AND FOR THE BASTERD WHITEMEN WATEVER YOUR USER NAME IS: how dare you talk about black women like that you racist sun of a …. i wish i could jus ring yur neck n show you how whites our people treated my other people the blacks i want you to be in their shoes and see how it felt to be beaten whipped chained and other things that jus downgraded blacks n oh yea if you had ever went to school you racist basterd you would know that white jews germans and other whites were slaves before blacks you dumb crep so check your history before you talk down bout someone OH N BLACK FEMALES DONT SUCK DICK LIKE YOU THINK WHITES DO and we didnt start killing ea. other because of you all its cause were getting tierd of racist bs like this. and if you didnt kno white girls kill themsleves more then black girls do LOOK IT UP!!!!!!!!

  161. Black people are just as racist as white people. The fact is, these horrible crimes happened before most of us was even born. With that in mind, why carry the hate from generation to generation? Truth is, if you put a white child and a black child on a playground, they will play ALL DAY. They only learn to hate other races from what they see in adults. Lets learn from the past to make a better future for our children. Remember, we can’t move foward if we are constantly looking behind us. God Bless!

    • I am black and I agree with you to a certain extent. Some blacks chose to hate whites not only because of the past ,but also because of how they have been mistreated by whites in the present. On the other hand a vast amount of whites have been raised and taught to be racist, whereas some whites have had the opposite upbringing. I chose to love because Jesus loves me despite my past and all of my flaws. I don’t know you, but I love you because you are my sister in Christ

No you don’t know GOD,or the BIBLE let alone love GOD.

    • whites are jealous (not jealuos) of skin color? So, does that mean black women are jealous of the hair white women have? Just wondering since black women seem to enjoy getting extensions and coloring their hair. You are proving my point exactly — these days, black people are more racist than other races.

      • and also, you mention how whites say they love the Lord and Know him, but do the immoral things. Sounds like these thug hip-hop artist who smoke up the weed, brag about gang-banging, rap and belittle the black woman, display them as whores in the videos, and get on stage with a 50 man possie and give thanks to God. Seems like that falls on the same platform, just different scenario.

  166. I hate you ghosts asses,who the fucking hell do you think you are ,the problem is that you are jealous of our skin color where as we ,some white bitch ass said that we blacks all look alike, but I ask some white as ignorant bich ass ,how the fuck that is ,when we ppl of color are many different colors and you ghost of a color are one color only white and pale,we, some of us are tan,and a teasing tan I must say, brown, bronze, cocoa light skinned ,dark skinned just different colors ,where as you white ppl are just the same one color, white and you envyus for that our color,and is why your white asses be in the tanning salons and shit , you want some color to your pale white asses cause if you white woman and you white men, didn’t want color, your white bitch punk asses would be tanning yourselves and your hair, you can’t wear it only but in a few limited styles and cuts if a few , but you see we ppl of color we have various styles and many that we can wear our hair, all around universal, and in the Bible days GOD”S chosen ppl are the Etheopians and the Egytians is why you ghost of a ppl are haters ,but o the Bible you wouldn’t/don’t know about because if you did you would know the GOD is Love and to know HIM is to love one another.As for those of you whites who are demons ,you are going to HEll ,if you don’t change your way of thinking ,as for me if I could I’de put you all there because frankly it’s where you belong if you don’t stop being so wicked.

  168. the men that killed emmett till are spending eternity in hell as we speak, believe that! they are experiencing a constant suffer and torment from the wrath of GOD. These men will burn in hell, forever, forever they will burn. They will forever experience to their ownselves what they did to Emmett. Emmett was beaten and killed for one nite. Those devil filled men will experence the same unto them, forever and ever. Gods wrath will constantly fall upon them. The devil will forever have his way with the men who did horrible things to Emmett Till. Emmett was used as a catalyst for the civils right movement! The Lord chose him, he is the Lords, not ours. For those men to committ an act as they did, they were devil filled, possessed with the devil. Therefore, they will forever sleep with the devil. Let this be a lesson to all who have hatred in their blood toward their fellow man. When the second death comes upon you, you will surely die, not live with the Lord God in his glory. To love means growing closer to God. To hate and murder, your just going the opposite way, HELL!! It is ok to dislike a person. It is ok to be angry with a person. The key is to remain humble when youv reached this state of mind. Not rationalize by hatred and murder.

I never said that that the whiets actually said that thye know the LORD or love HIM for that matter, what i said is that if they said that they love the LORD or if they know HIM or the Bible,they wouldnot/could not have that kind of hate in their hearts.and that is factual, and don’t you get it twisted you hear.

    • Are you serious? You said, ” you don’t hear them rapping about killing anyone.” Hmmmmm, lets take a ride back in time. NWA (Straight out of Compton), Ghetto Boys, Ice T, Ice Cube, Dr.Dre/Snoop, 50 cent, Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Murder C, Easy E, Eminem, Haystack, etc… just to name a few. I can continue with others if you like. Do your research, listen to the lyrics off any of the artists CD that I listed above. After you do so, you will than realize that each one will have lyrics of killing. Trust me, if you try to have a battle of wits with me, you will lose everytime. I am an open minded person that has and will listen to ANY type of music, from Country, Rap, R$B, Scream Metal, Classic Rock, Gospel, Adult Contemporary, etc. The difference between you and I is that I can carry on a conversation with ANYONE when it comes to the music they enjoy.

If you want to mirror the white woman, continue wearing colored contacts, install your hair extensions, and color your hair to a lighter shade.

Two are from one black woman, two by another black woman. I was raised to see people by their character, not by the color of their skin. I make sure that my children know both sides of their heritage – the good and the bad. My wish is that at some point in my life time, I will be able to witness universal harmony amongst all.

  174. I suppose this is the part that I mention that I am a black female. My mother told me a story once about a little black.boy named Emmett Till who lived in Chicago. With his single mother. He had no brothers or sisters. He waan only child. Surely most people hee understand that. Consorting I was normed and raised in Rochester, New York I had a serious heartfelt moment when I heard the rest of this hate filled tale. He was kidnapped,beaten and killed because he did something he was used to.doing up north I personally find it bullshit that someone would be so racially petrified. He was 14 when he was murdered. I believe that the murder itself was disgusting. The trial was disgusting and the response from both murderers in the interview was also disgusting. However to look upon a picture of the aftermath of a Couple of ignorant repulsive hillbilly redneck demons is undescirbable. To look at a picture of a women’s only child brutally murdered is horrific her pain and her strength was driven by the fact that two grown men murdered a boy for being a boy. It was immature ignorant and just plain ridiculous
    My brother mother and sister have all experienced racism beyond a belief but never like this. This picture will forever continue to haunt the lives of those prior to his murder then and now. I will teach my children about Emmett and I will tell them the truth. But not so they can grow to hate whites or other ethnicities but so they can see that murder whether racially initiatied or just by accident murder still exists. This is the outcome of a hate that makes no sense that has no plausible reason. Murder is wrong. What happened to this boy is wrong and the monsters will continue to now and forever be haunted and tormented by this historically gruesome murder. Emmett Till will eternally have his revenge.

But I’m also Indian, Chinese, and Creole

  177. Hi i am a 12 year old Black Boy and when i saw this picture of emmett i was so hurt and i had sadness,and rage in my heart. No dissrespect but to all of you who look at this picture and do not care about what happened to this boy just 2 years older than me,this will have an effect on your own life. The things you say about this boy and all African americans is hurtful. Remeber God sees everything you do he and hears all. So you can say all the things you want to but God will punish you for your ignorance. That is very cruel what they did to this kid and if it was the other way. Meaning if it was a WHITE boy you wouldnt feel this way. You would probably have envy in your hearts just like we do. The KKK was wrong for what they did and let me tell you that right now that if they didnt repent they are probably paying for it. I am not putting a curse on anyone i just want you to know what happened.

You curse and do dumb things which end up being negative to all of us. I do say that the other races are being bias because of what other African americans do. But just because one is like that doesnt mean we all are. If you want to get back at ‘The Man’ get an education. ‘The Mans’ worse nightmare is an educated African american man. Thats why I am in school. I’ll probably be going to SUMNER Academy of Arts and Science next year because of me putting all my soul and time into trying to get a better education. Please do the same.

We whites would help 200% all blacks and more if you would try to better yourselves and by doing so you better this whole country.We voted in an educated black man to the highest office in the world, Obama, so this goes to show America isnt prejudice to color, just to ignorant behavior. I also wanted to say that i’m so very proud of you at only 12 years old, young man, to get such a good education. You sound so mature, intellegent, open minded, and articulate. Very well done!!

This pic was not posted 2 enrage anyone or begin a black/white war. It doesnt matter the color of anyones skin, and for all of you 2 resort 2 the name callin and hate towards one another just shows the we as a human race has not evolved since the time of Emmett Till. Everyone on here who read and responded to the negative comments are no better than the ones who posted it. We’re all supposed to learn from the past, evolve past the injustice done to or ancestor’s and become better people. No matter our outward apperance we all bleed the same, love the same, and feel the same emotions. No one race is better than another and i hope before the end comes for anyone person they learn that and teach that 2 there own children. (Rest in Peace Emmett Till).

  180. I hope this doesn’t offend anyone. But I’m glad this happened. It just shows that something terrible has to happen in order for good to come. i cnt imagine what it was like to be black in that time. but we as Americans need to come to reality that this was happening it did happen. We as a whole have come a long way I mean look we got a black president. racism is a terrible thing but I think it could go away. It’s something that is learn therefore could be unlearned. But I do agree with the comment before from a white person perceptive point. Its not fair that some black people hold it against white people. Not all white are racist. Plus during that time there were whites that did support the black community. Hell anyone remembers some president name Kennedy? I’m not white or black I’m Spanish. Everybody unfortunately holds some prejudiced towards others races it is what it is. I mean hell look wtf is going on in Arizona. Both white and black communities discriminated my people and nobody is dong shit. I find it even more fucked up how some blacks still hold a grudge towards whites. I mean blacks weren’t the only people who had it bad. I mean when was the last time u saw a native American around? We as a group must overcome this and move on. Race shouldn’t be an issue any more. I hate that those horrible men did this to a young boy jus cause he saw a women who he found attractive and whistled lol really? What’s even worse is that they went to trail and were found not guilty! My heart goes out to his family it’s a shame and to the men who did this may god have mercy on your soul. And to the cops, the jurors, the judge, the lawyers, and anyone who supported these criminals why and how? Like really lol shame on ya

Some already think we are DUMB & STUPID & LAZY, it’s not true, THINK, LOOK, LISTEN, we are a visual race, summon peace, pray and the answer will reveal itself. Try to image ourself in earlier days and compare. THERE IS A ANSWER. LOOK at small things of TODAY. Find the Answer?? TRY AGAIN!! GOD MAKES NO MISTAKES! ASHE

  209. Where is the respect? I mean, come on. The least you can do is show the respect Emmett Till deserves by not posting immature and rude posts about a picture of his brutal murder. Next time, consider what you say and write before doing it. This man had a life, A life that is now gone, because of selfish fools and ignorant souls like the some above. If you are kind enough to stop this non-sense, then thank you. Otherwise use your brain for once.

  212. just to let you know what really happened ……not to long ago i seened the biography of Emmett Till yesterday.And he was only 14 when he got murdered.It was in the summer time when his great uncle had came to take him back home to Mississippi.He was living in Chicago with his mom and before he left his mom tryed telling him that Mississippi was not like Chicago and he thought his mom was exaggerating. His mom was telling him that “when you see a white woman coming down the street,you must get off the side walk and put your head down and walk pass her and you cannot look at her”.So when Emmett and his brother left with there uncle i guess everything was ok until he caught whistling at a white woman and that night the two white men came and took Emmett and drove him some where and they beat him with a 45 in the head and they took him to the river and put a barb wire around his neck and threw him in the river……………………………………………

  216. Emmett Till was my cousin and I grew up in the home with his mom, grandma, and stepdad. My mother played with him and they lived in the same building. His mom Mamie Till Mobley always said that image of Emmett demonstrated what racism looked like. Imagine his mom having to look at her only child like that-and that is what he looked like AFTER the morticians worked on his body preparing him for his funeral. It may be ugly but racism is ugly! So yes, look at it and never forget it!!!

    WOW! Racism is yet demonstrated in the previous comments. Understand that even after our family experienced such a tragedy, we never once demonstrated racism to our brothers and sisters of other nationalities. Emmett’s mom forgave those two white men for what they did but never forgot. Not only would they have gotten away with his brutal murder but if she hadn’t forgiven them in her heart they would have destroyed her spirit.

    It breaks my heart to year young people speak of things they don’t necesarily understand. I appreciate the factual rebuttals to the ignorant remarks made-Ignorance is Bliss! Two good books to read: “Death of Innocence” written by Emmett’s mom (Mamie Till Mobley & Chris Benson) & the latest release by my cousin Simeon Wright (Emmett was visiting with him and his family in Mississippi when these tragic events occurred)”Simeon’s Story”. In “Simeon’s Story” shares the accounts of everything that happened as Simeon was with Emmett.

    • Oh Ashley, don’t you know that the blacks will ALWAYS blame the white’s for their misfortunes in life not because we’ve done anything, but because they don’t want to better themselves and forget revenge. That’s just too much hard work so they point the finger. We all know they live in the richest country in the world and have the greatest opportunity to become educated,rich and self sustaining,(OH, AND EVEN BECOME PRESIDENT) more than any other country but instead of using this to their advantage, they will stay lazy and revengeful of previous generations and blame all of us that were not even born back then. They have been free for over 100 years and emmitt till died 56 years ago, but in this blog page, for example, you get ebonics and nasty language that shows the hatefullness,laziness and prejudice ignorance that they hang on to. I was raised in Memphis Tennessee and didnt even know what prejudice meant till i was almost a teenager because of the older people, of both races, taught me and who would not let the hatred go.

  253. I live in Memphis, Tennessee and im jewish and indian and both of my ancestors races have been treated as second class citizens, have been slaves to whites and other races, and have been beaten, raped, and murdered unmercibly. Why is it you can safely walk thru a jewish neighborhood and an indian resorvation without danger but not an african neighborhood? I just wish the blacks would concentrate on bettering themselves and contributing to society instead of gangs, basketball and rap. i know there’s plenty of civilized black ppl in America but where i live in Memphis Tennessee, there is not as many good blacks as there are bad. Memphis is on the border of the state of Mississppi and Arkansas. I have lived down here all of my life, for 50 years, and the racial divide is still very bad.There are alot more blacks than whites in Memphis and whites continually move away from blacks here to avoid the bad neighborhoods and the blacks continually want to move into the white neighborhoods and ultimately destroy the areas with inner city ganglike behavior. Why??? It would not be this way if the blacks would give up on revenge and try to concentrate on making something of themselves instead of a nusiance to civilization. This is one of the main reasons that whites have been so against blacks mingling in their lives. When I worked as a Rental Manager, I had mexican tenants that didnt want to live near blacks, i had indian, arab, chinese, korean, jewish, and white tenants that did not want to live near black ppl. Why is this? Well even now I have black neighbors that have moved to the suburb of Memphis, living near me, and all they say is “I want to get away from the all black neighborhoods because its too dangerous”. Black ppl are running from their own neighborhoods, their own race, even their own families, because they know its so bad. The jewish ppl in my family (that were previously slaves to whites) have moved on and gotten educated, started business’ and the indians(in my family who were previously slaves to white ppl) have gotten rich with the casinos and they all live like nice, civilized ppl. I wish the blacks would do the same thing. Its really sad. I wonder if I will ever see it change in the south and elsewhere.I guess all we can do is pray for things to get better.

The majority of the black community in the south doesnt want to apply themselves into anything that is hard to do, like school for instance. or even possibly just reading one long paragraph. Gee, is it that hard? no, your just lazy and prejudiced and full of hate and probably arent old enough to even know what this blog page really means. Your bad behavior turns the whole world against you, not just whites. Thats it in a nutshell. easy enough for you? hope so.

  256. why do these people post rplies like the understand what is going on in the world around us…just from the ignorant comments alone and the inability to post something reasonable on this site shows you what we have become. We are just proving now that those who held their heads high in the time of slavery( whites and blacks) against eachother that we have become worse than them. We have lost sight of all of what were created to be…people…people who chase down a false sense of wrong and right…lost in the fortress of dillusion and blinded by the light of injustice. Walking through life we have fallen now to the pit of despair and desperartion that calls forth the demons in us all…in the quest for power we become the racism that rides our backs today~254-630-7085~Oh and if you wish you may text me,but I am only sixteen so watch what you say… reap what you sow my friends reap what you sow…and yeah I am black, because that obviously matters these days.

  257. PERSONALLY I THINK YOU ALL NEED TO GROW UP. WHAT HAPPEN IN THE PAST NEEDS TO STAY IN THE PAST. IT HAPPEN TO OUR ANCESTORS NOT US. AND IF ANY WHITE PERSON DIDN’T KNOW A NIGGER CAN BE ANYBODY OF ANY RACE. THE MEANING OF NIGGER IS AN IGNORANT PERSON.I AM A 17 YEAR OLD BLACK FEMALE AND PERSONALLY I FEEL THAT IF I COULD LET GO YALL CAN TOO.AND ON TOP OF THAT I STAY IN MISSISSIPPI AND IM ABOUT AN HOUR DRIVE FROM MONEY,MS.SO ALL I’M SAYING LEAVE THE PAST IN THE PAST.

  270. @RICH, it’s not the niggers you people should be concerned with because when we reclaim our land, niggers will be your least worry. I promise you, you wouldn’t dare fuck with a Mexican while you’re talking shit. We crush you bastards and you will still be after niggers. So fuck you and stop trying to kiss our Mexican asses, we’re not impressed. Once again, when we get thru with all you people, black and white, who will your classmate-killing asses will target next. So, Rich, remember, stop sucking up to our race all the time. My grandfather was right, when he first got to this country, white people were all over Mexicans, trying to be our friends. You white sluts sleep around on the first date, black bitches having babies out of wedlock. We’re the only family/work-oriented race in this country anyways. So blacks and whites, you all keep targeting each other because when it’s all over, all you muthafuckers will be our slaves. Now, nigger that fucking inbreds

After slavery ended segration started and when it did Emmit Till didnt know about it.One day Emmit Till was going to visit his cousin,and as he was doing that he said hi to a white woman and like i said Emmit Till didnt know.So that day they called for Emmmit Till and beat to the point were you cant even see his face.They didnt even care that he had a family a family that loved him and if you didnt even care your sick.But i guess thats how it was.And for all you people out there whos commeting and argueing at people who care just as much about Emmit Till as you do.You should be happy that we now have wrights to read,write,count, and so much more.Take advantage and learn lean how to read and write then say something im not saying that you cant comment on Emmit Till im just saying you should not aregue all you people commenting on Emmit Till not even really talking about Emmit Till.

  300. I’m a person. We all are. Skin color is but one identifier and yet somehow we have managed to give it credence to who we are, collectively and as individuals.

    Emmett Till was 14 years old. Think of yourself at 14. No one deserves to be brutally beaten and murdered. Nothing he could say should warrant that type of punishment. Nothing anyone could say should warrant that type of brutality.

    His mother wanted an open casket so the world could see the grotesque reality of the senseless brutality of racism in the Jim Crow South. And yes, it is difficult to look at…it should be. His mother wanted people to see so they could be moved to do something about it. So all children could live in a world where they could be free to aspire to be what they wanted to be.

    I am black. I am from the South. And because of people having the courage to stand up to a corrupt system, I am able to enjoy my life in a way my parents could not. I for one am eternally grateful to the people of all races who had the courage to do so. It’s easy to go along with the crowd and engage in “group think.”

    Like I said, we are all people.

  302. This was a time when White America was really beginning to get into becoming it’s sickest and lowest. Emmett Till will always be remembered as a young man who faced his death and murderers with courage. His murderers confessed in an interview because they had already been tried and not convicted that they started out just wanting to just beat on him a little and scare him shitless. Emmett being a city boy from up North was not intimidated nor showed any fear even as they tortured him he would not even flinch and it pissed them off as they said.
    This is grown ass white men admitting that they couldn’t even scare a little African American boy even when they beat, torture and killed him.
    Their egos and white racist pride couldn’t handle that.

    Emmet Till died with honor and I will always think of Emmitt when I am faced with adversity and danger.

    Thank You,
    Mr.Emmett Till

  304. THE MURDER OF EMMETT TILL

    TV ONE ran “Untold Story/Emmett Louis Till” director Keith Beauchamp’s film examines the 1955 murder of black14 year old Emmett Louis Till in Mississippi ! What stuck me as a black man that was born in 1958! Was how much nothing has change today in 2011! Today all white jury do the very same racist verdicts. Voting base on racism and pure hatred and totally unfair! Shamefully many would disagree with me! But the facts are the facts. Both black and white Americans believe that things are better. Especially white Americans that feel that ones they allowed black to sit anywhere on public transportation. And go to school with their white children. Blacks should be happy and totally content! In post-trial analyses, blame for the outcome varied. Mamie Till Bradley was criticized for not crying enough on the stand. The all white racist jury was noted to have been picked almost exclusively from the hill country section of Tallahatchie County, which, due to its poorer economic make-up found whites and blacks competing for land and other agrarian opportunities. Unlike the population living closer to the river (and thus closer to Bryant and Milam in Leflore County) who possessed a noblesse oblige toward blacks according to historian Stephen Whitaker, those in the eastern part of the county were remarkably virulent in their racism. The prosecution was criticized for dismissing any potential juror who knew Milam or Bryant, for the fear that such a juror would vote to acquit. Afterward, Whitaker noted that this was a mistake as anyone who had personally known the defendants usually disliked them. White historian lied about this one juror that voted twice to convict, but on the third discussion, acquiesced and voted with the rest of the jury to acquit. In later interviews, the jurors acknowledged that they knew Bryant and Milam were guilty, but simply did not believe that life imprisonment or the death penalty fit punishment for whites who had killed a black man. This is somewhat disputed by later interviews with two jurors who stated as late as 2005 that they believed the defense’s case, that the prosecution had not proven that Till had died and that it was his body that was removed from the river!
    The first trail on the murder of Till the two white men where found not guilty. The second trail took less then fifth teen minute on the kidnapping! NOT GUILTY! Back when the Emmett Till incident happen whites blame the NACCP and outside niggers for the verdict! Today Rev. Al Sharpton is blame for upsetting the judicial process and marching. The disrespectful verdict of the many murdered unarmed innocent black adults and children. Rev, Sharpton is blame! White cops especially have gotten away with beating blacks. Shooting black children as young as 7 years old (Aiyana Jones) and adults as old as 92 years old (Kathryn Johnston)! Many blacks have join Emmett Till that died base on race. By white American citizen and mainly whites in law enforcement. The justice system in America is one of the worse in the world! It is a American embarrassment. Totally racist and stat with irresponsible unprofessional white judges. That care nothing about justice and more about injustice! More about keeping a white police officer employ. Then imprison or either firing him or her. After they murder a unarm handcuff black American by shooting in the back! Today worse then back in 1955 there are video of obvious police criminal abusive brutality activity! When it gets to the justice system straight up police brutality and murder is found not guilty! Today there is less out cry against police brutality then in 1955! Blacks will march for a minute! Cry and shout “no justice No peace for a minute! Then wait for the next innocent black murder! So that should tell America especially black Americans! That marching won’t stop this evil! Shouting NO justice No peace won’t stop it! Changing and enforcing new rules of the use of deadly force will! Automatic firing a police that shoot a unarmed American! Firing any law enforcement that beats a innocent unprovoked caught on camera victim! WILL! Just think politician in some state wrote legislation to stop saggy pants. Fines up to $500 and or jail time! GO FIGURE!!!!

If you were just walking down the street and somebody saw you and for no reason did not like you,then that person waited till you got home waited till u went to sleep broke into your home took you out of bed and bet you then hung you from a tree till you were dead then after all that bet you again then took your body and wraped it around a wheel of a trian with rope and dump you in the river. that is what thease sick white people did your peps did to that poor black boy .and by the why I am white and it makes me sick to soul that people in my race would be so sick to say what you just said.I have very good friend and family that are black,and other races and i would die for them.

    sdfsdf

    May 4, 2011 at 6:07 am

  307. I was a victim of an assault by a black punk who wanted to get into a fight at school. I walked away, he snuck up behind me and when I turned my head to see who it was, he sucker punched me with something metal in his hands, he kept punching me. I was on the ground unconscious and he kept hitting me. Another black guy pushed him off me.

    The school could not believe that a black guy had done this without a good reason, so they tried to claim I was a racist although my best friend there was an African guy. Anyhow the school did not want to upset the black community so he was free to be anywhere around me and security did nothing. Police charged him but the black guy that pushed him off me made a deal with the guy who assaulted me and told the school and police that it was self defense.

    The school officials “encouraged” me to leave the school and I did. A few months later at trial the gullible white judge said he would not convict over a chipped tooth. But what had happened was sixteen stitches in different places on my face an two broken teeth (broken in half). Piece of shit white judge acquitted the black scum.

    I lost everything and had to start working a shitty job for the rest of my life. That punk went around school claiming self defense.

    When I hear stories of blacks getting killed like this one or mistreated by the police, I am overjoyed and so happy. You ba tards deserved slavery and I can’t understand why the hell they let you free.
    You are destroying the USA and anywhere else they let you live. Crime, welfare, guns, drugs, shit rap music.

    May 4, 2011 at 6:28 am

  308. Oh and get this, school security did not want to hand over the security footage of the assault. The investigating police officer told me they were not helpful. Probably trying to avoid a lawsuit.

    I lost my life ten years ago and fell into depression. I was left with very mild brain damage, I can’t concentrate well. I was a top grade student in school, now I work minimum wage rotating shift jobs.

    My life was taken from me lost my school, friends, graduation, career, my mind.

    A hope many more of you blacks die horribly or suffer in jail for the rest of you lives. You certainly deserve it for all the crimes you get away with, rapes and murders especially.

  310. Reading the article from the look magazine, and the testemony of the two white men for murdering emmett made me sick. this picture represents the hatred that the white comunity had for african americans. That hatred is still alive, but if this picture doesn’t make this men and women from the south become for sane than death will be their only remedy…. im hispanic and im truelly disapoint of being part of this crual world. lynching is not something they should advertise and put it on news papers with the smiling faces of those who lynched a man. I hope they are all burn for all eterniy.

  311. I am a 36 year old woman from New Orleans,La.that attended Hinds Community College in Utica, Ms. I always looked at the picture in the front of the hallway of Emmitt Til and just thought he was a student that attended the school. It wasn’t until later on in the years that i was educated on who that was. I was disturb by it and still is, I never in a million years thought a person can do another human being that way. He was just a baby, for the Till family be strong and hold on to God’s unchanging hand cause justice will be served on the attackers,jurors, and the judge when judgement day comes, they will see his face again.

  312. I watched the movie about him tonight and thanked God I wasn’t born in that time because I was ashamed at how white people behaved then and yes in some instances even today. BUT after reading some of these comments I realized the hate is everywhere. This poor child suffered an unimaginable death and his Mom wanted everyone to see what hatred does and sadly until people learn to love one another his death will remain in vain. I’m a white woman and I mourn for this child and the man he could have become, the family he could have created and also for the pain he endured because of ignorance. Also out of respect everyone should refrain from the cursing on the same page as the picture of his suffering. Emmett Till God bless your soul and rest in peace with the Lord and your Mother who is with you now and doesn’t have to suffer the pain of losing her child in such a cruel manner.

    Wishing the hatred would stop

  314. First and foremost, we don’t need to be arguing on here. All the racist comments, put that Sh*t to the side. Yes, they pissed all of us African-American/BLacks.Niggas off. But we can’t give in to these racist people who don’t know how it feels to live in our shoes. Lemme school some of you guys, the ones who wanna be heartless and racist. You don’t know what our people had to go through to get freedom. Yes, they were beat, they got whipped badly, they got lynched, and got tortured. Emmett is an example of what our ancestors had to live through. But you guys are too under minded to realize that, because you have never been through it or had to learn about it before. What if it was your child ? What if it was your ancestors shedding blood and tears to get freedom for today? You’ll never know, because you’re so into yourself and think that “WHITES” is the ultimate race. You’re not invincible, matter of fact noone is. This stuff is so childish, to be racist toward blacks. We got our freedom now, and it’s because of our ANCESTORS. Emmett till didn’t deserve this, no black person who lived back then deserved none of it. Yeah, you can basically say that you white people use to “RULE” us. But guess what? It’s not like that anymore. :) Take that BS somewhere else, get over yourselves and be real with yourselves. Come on now, you know damn well you wouldn’t come at a black person sayin that BS, bumpin off at the mouth in person. Cause you know, you won’t do nothing to us. Because we strong, all the things our people went through made our race stronger. && The sad thing..to my black people…Why give them the power. Don’t let them get you mad..because we’re stronger than that. Smile at it, and let it go. If you white, and you posted a racist comment…or just pure heartless…you need to really think twice. Cause how the world is today…you know you wouldn’t dare talk sh*t to us like a damn foo, cause we will KNOCK ya’ll on your ass. && Maybe even beat the FU*K outt you, and thats real. Or maybe even shoot you. It gets real, its not what it used to be. You won’t step in the hood talkin like that, you won’t ever live in the hood like we do. You stay in “SUBURBS” lol. I love my race and I’m proud of it. It’s because of Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, Emmett Till, && the whole Civil Rights movement that we STAND on our feet today. So WHITE people… hahaha Word to ya mother “Black” people are still standing and we’re still here. Get with the shit :)

    • I’m from the Midwest. Five of my ancestors died in the Civil War because they believed blacks should be free like they were. I was NEVER allowed to say the n-word growing up or even tell a racist joke. I raised my children the same way. Now I live a life of never-ending pain because a young black man wanted to shoot a whitey for no reason. One second on the trigger and now that young man will never have his mother’s Thankgiving dinner again, never hug his mother again, never know the sweet smell of a lady next to him ever again, never have his own family, never see anything of the world outside of gray filthy walls.
      And then I read LadyTooreal’s post advocating blacks to commit more violence over mere words, no less. Is that really what you all want for your people? Are you really PROUD of all the young blacks wasting away in prison? You are advocating blacks to be the lowest they can be, not the best they can be. You should be ashamed to be cut from the same cloth as Emmett’s killers.

      • I agree with you. && You’re reallyy absolutely right. Thank you :) I wasn’t even trying to advocate for black people to committ violence, . Two wrongs dont make a right, and just because people did stuff to us don’t mean we gottaaa fire back and always retaliate.

        June 2, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    • Oh, and just so you know, I watched that young man’s mother completely die inside when they sentenced her son (only 19) to life with no parole. They took him away without even letting her hold him one last time. She didn’t look so PROUD at that moment.
      I pray for Emmett, for my son, for the young man that killed him and especially for his mother, who also lost her only son.
      And I pray that someone will read this post and decide on a better life for themselves than thinking violence and guns will make them a man. I can guarantee you that that gun didn’t make him a man. he is probably someone’s woman right now. Think about it

Just reading the racist comments really made my blood boil. Our world is so cold and cruel, I hate the fact that our people have to suffer, and I feel even worse because Our own people fight against eachother. I’m sorry for the loss of your son, I could never imagine how that feels. I’m just a young woman in this world trying to survive, and just learning about our black history just reallyyy, gets to my heart real bad. Thank you for what you said,. I’ve been changing for the better, honestly. && I wanna continue to change, you reallyyy got your message to me.

  316. Thank you for reading my post and replying. I’m very happy you understand my point. Some people (white or black) will never understand and that is the sad part. I wish all young people who at a crossroads could read my post before they make that decision to pick up a gun or commit an act of violence. There are NO winners when they make the wrong choice.
    I wish all the black posters would consider that many thousands of white people lost their lives trying to free their ancestors and there were so many of them that we actually won. It’s too bad the minority (nincompoop racists) are the only ones that seem to be heard.
    Peace

  317. You’re welcome. && You are right, this world is full of so much hatred. Many blacks lost their lives ya noe? It was hell tryingto get our freedom, and I feel that it’s dis-respectful to our ancestors. I have lost so many ppl due to gun violence, and it’s hurtful. About 5 of them were friends, and that was just within the year and a half. && Counting..there were about 15 homicides in a year. Smh(Shakin My Head) Young people, have to realize that not only are they destroying their lives, but they destroying the world around them too. Sometimes I wonder what god is thinking, just watching the world crumble piece by piece. I have a purpose in life, and I want to be able to live to pursue it. I hope people read both ouf our messages. What happened to Emmett Till sparked a fire. && It’s never going to end, unless someone decides they want to make a change for the world.

  319. When I see this picture, the sadness just wells up inside me. Things seem to have gotten better in the past 56 years, but it’s just on the surface. The devil is the “landlord” here, and young black males, kids and young adults AND older, have been systematically and cruelly under attack by all manner of forces, because the devil knows that if all reached their best potential and all acted for God, the force would be unstoppable. There are so many mothers who have had their children ripped away from them and have had to go through what Mamie did, and there will be many more, and that is really disgusting.

  320. Only God could have comfort the heart of his mother and loved ones. This is a horrible thing that happened to this poor beautiful child. We have come a long way from racism, but unfortunately (as you can see from previous comments) it is till alive. But one day we all will have to stand before God and will be held accountable for every word that have fallen carelessly off of our tongues. We will be held accountable for every thought good or bad and every work/act good or bad. So those who live in sin and die in sin will indeed receive their ultimate reward by the only true and living God. Whether you believe it or not. So there is no need for me to respond to some of the heartless things that has been typed on here. God is the one who has the last say, a last say that matters. Despite the evils of this world Emmett and his Mother are resting in the peace of God and no one can hurt them with their ignorance, words, or racism.

    This is from the ACLU look it up. Cops cover for white criminals even they are by far the worst criminals in the country. They committed and got away with more crime then all the blacks and hispanic combined.
    You dont hear about this because the white cops are covering for them, they are not telling you this

  324. I have read all of your comments, I did a paper on Emmett Till and I changed the topic to ” The Sound of Murder was a Whistle” , if you knew the history of this child you would realize that he did nothing wrong but being black in Mississippi in 1955 you had to literally watch everything and everybody. Emmett had a speech impedement and he stuttered severely. Who is to say that instead of this so-called “whistle” she (Carolyn ) heard could not be the sound of the beginning of Emmett trying to say something, she automatically assumed he whistled at her and ran to her car to retrieve her gun to shoot him, his cousin, and his friends. They ran away. In the wee hours of the morning between 2:00am and 2:30am, some triflin men went to his uncle house pulled him out of bed and that is the LAST time his family ever saw him alive, disgusting was correct, but the men who killed Emmett need to wear that title, he was a child who was only there visiting. He never had a chance to live, grow up, grow old….nothing! This story moves me everytime I read about it because I too have sons and I would die if something that tragic happened to them. Be mindful of the things you say and to whom you say them too.

  328. The picture of Emmett Till’s body should be a grim reminder of the cruelty of man towards one another. It doesn’t matter whether you are black, white, purple, or green. No one deserves to be treated the way he was. You can tell that racism is still alive just by the comments that have been posted. Instead of the bickering back and forth with those who were obviously the product of inbreeding, (whiteman), let’s focus on telling Emmett’s story, showing the pictures, and educating our children, so that not another parent has to see her child like that.

  330. No matter what race you are, ignorance is ignornace, feeding into someone who is ignorant only gives the ingnorant person what they want. As far as this picture goes, its horrible. This was a child, someones baby who was killed because of the color of his skin and the people who did it got away with it. We need to realize the fear that black people had to live with on a daily basis during these times. Blacks werent the only ones who had to fear. if u were white and associated with anything “colored” you were considered a “nigger” and had to be scared as well. black or white, nobody deserves this.

I am taken back by some of the rude, senseless, mean, YES IGNORANT and flat out unkind and unthinkable things some people have said. Yes, we are all entitled to our “opinions” but we all know what “they” say about opinions…we all have one, just like we all have something else. I am embarassed, not only as a white person but as a human being at how tasteless and hateful people can STILL BE NOW! I love ALL PEOPLE and could not imagine all of the hard and cruel things african americans, AS WELL AS OTHER RACES, endured years ago. Racism comes in all forms and colors, it’s not always black/white, but we have to work to stop the hate in the world. I love everyone and wish all happiness and GOD BLESS!!!

  333. “THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS”, Emmett Till is at the Top of the page laying dead and maurtered and we underneath, are speaking of the racist that committed the offense. How about speaking of how to FIX the Problem of Racsism. We know that some people are ignorant and say or type things that are at the most, indicative of Who they are and Who they belong to. What I mean by this is that every comment (and retort) is a reflection on WHO raised you and HOW they raised you. BLACK PEOPLE, stop falling victim to these comments or even replying to them because it only makes US appear DUMB. “The Smart people are the ones who ignore these stupid peoples comments and Focus on the Real Issue “Why”.

  334. HOW COULD a loving mother could allow pictures of her dead and buried son decayed in his grave to be publicized like this? I tell you how, she was NO loving mother. If she was a good loving mother, she would not have raised a son who would whistle at a married woman out with her husband brazenly in broad daylight. that right there tells you a lot about Emit Till–he would have gone on to be a rapist no doubt like so many black men. God bless that poor white man in prison now for defending the honor of his wife. There’s not too many of them like that now. Now Emitt Till’s mother–how much money do you think she got to let them publish that picture? So don’t worry about Emit Till, he got what he deserved and his mother got her money too for letting them Jews to use his picture.

    Do you think that Channon Christan’s mother would have allowed a picture of her dead raped daughter, raped by 4+ worthless black men, in the press for any amount of money? No. Remember Channon Christain and Christopher Newsome, may the Lord bless them and curse their black murderers. They day of Judgment is coming, I pray it is soon.

  335. wow reading all of these comments made my head hurt. White people are in the news more then blacks for kiling their own children shooting their schools friends rape and murder. I think i see alot of them also on cops and the dumbest criminals. Blacks are on the news for dumb ass shit also killing each other drive by shooting, burglary. Many white really want to be black think about it who goes to the beach to get tan? Tan is a color of black if a white see a light skinned person their are something else then white. Who really Founded America Indians but a white man claimed it or made the first houses cooked the food, did all teh work to make that person stronger blacks. So every race has a fault. Blacks look at it like this stop wprrying about a couple of words on the screen white people never did anything for themselves thats why they had slaves they made blacks stronger then them thats why they’re scared and coward behind the computer because their ancestors cowarded behind their slaves. So embrace your race and know that all races are evil. But some are stronger then the rest. All colored people are not black and only white people are white. Blacks have a whole world that they can call upon when it comes to races.

    God bless that man who had the guts to defend his wife against the insults of some young black male punk, with his vile public whistles and insults. God less that for that man for doing his duty and protecting his wife. What a travesty of justice that as an old man he must end his life in prison.

    May the Lord curse the evil murderers, rapists, liars, welfare cheats,. and lazy leeches sponging off of honest people!

    September 26, 2011 at 7:22 pm

  342. Roy Bryant was NOT defending his wife. Carolyn Bryant was never in any danger from Emmett Till. He was a child who did nothing but whistle at her. Since Emmett was from Chicago, he didn’t understand what a terrible mistake that whistle was in Mississippi. He was an innocent, fun-loving young boy who made an innocent mistake. Carolyn Bryant lied on the witness stand, claiming that Emmett said things to her that he could not possibly have said due to his speech impediment. The state of Mississippi has one of the worst racial histories of any state in our country, and this is only one of many horrible things that have been done there in the past. A lot of the posts on this forum are making me very sad. There is ugliness, ignorance and racism being displayed here, on both sides, by people who enjoy saying things to upset other people, when they know there will be no repercussions since they are hiding behind a computer. Making anonymous inflammatory statements, just because you think it is funny, is the very definition of cowardice. Mamie Till’s decision to allow her child’s body to be seen this way was a brave and important decision. His death was the catalyst for the civil rights movement, and the fact that people actually saw what was done to him probably helped spur that movement in a way that simply hearing the story never could have.

  343. Not sure what Rod the Racist is referring to when he says, “What a travesty of justice that as an old man he must end his life in prison.” As far as I know, no one has ever served one day in prison for the murder of Emmett Till, and some of those involved, including Carolyn Bryant, are still alive. Everyone involved got away with kidnapping and cold-blooded murder, and some of them are still getting away with it.

  344. To Rod the Moron: You said, “If she was a good loving mother, she would not have raised a son who would whistle at a married woman out with her husband brazenly in broad daylight.” Carolyn Bryant was not “out with her husband.” She was working at a store where Emmett bought candy. Why are you making up lies about this poor child? You are a coward. Stop hiding behind your computer. Better yet, do some research about this case.

    To anyone who hasn’t figured it out yet, “Rod” is known in cyber-space as a “troll.” A troll is someone who posts intentionally hateful comments just to get people worked up. The best thing you can do is ignore him. He is doing this for attention, because his real life is pathetic and lonely, so giving him attention is the worst thing you can possibly do. This is my last post, because I am through playing into his hands.

  345. Not all whites hated blacks. Read the book “The Help.” If Emmet Till were alive I bet he would just want the races to get along. Instead SOME whites are racist and SOME blacks claim to hate whites because of racism . A little history lesson, African people sold African people to the white men, then white men took them in ships over to America. THERE ARE NO BAD COLORS. There are bad people. I bet Emmet is sitting next to Jesus asking why is the deal about color? A good white man in the 1950′s would not kill a black boy, a bad white man would. A good black man would not break in a store, a bad black man would. Its not about hatred of color, it’s about hatred period. So if you hate white people for this boy’s death. Or hate black people because they shoot up our neighborhoods. Your not hating color. Your just hating. Grow up and stop using color as an excuse. You know what hate is? Anger. Were all angry and scared, we all bleed red. If I could change one thing it would be to make us all the same color, but then we would find something else to hate about eachother. Thats the truth. African Americans have the same rights as whites. Now lets get over this and get along. It’s so simple and yet nobody can do it. I am ashamed and this is why. Nobody talks about my white Aunt who was taken off of a bus and stomped in the chest by blacks in the 1950′s. If I can get over that and live my life the way I know she wanted it to be. We all should be able to as well. Her last words were, “don’t hate the color black, don’t hate anything and you already are changing the world.”

    TRUTH

    October 6, 2011 at 1:55 am

  346. Both races, Black and White, have major problems. In the modern day, Blacks are now the top ones making crimes due to the Whites always discriminating them. As for Emmett, he was clueless. He made a innocent mistake but he got murdered for it anyways. If racism didnt exist in the 1900′s, Carolyn (I believe her name is) wouldnt have lied to about Emmett’s made up crime as she said it,” Molesting,”. No child I know would ever molest a grown women. Emmett was trying to prove his friends that he could date a woman. Though, it turned into a murder case. Now, if Whites can stop fussing about how bad Black peoples behavior is, or how bad they stink, even calling them a brown log is accounted for racism. We can all work this out if people stop discriminating each other. Plus, you dont see Asians arguing with Americans now do you? Less Americans discriminate Asians than Blacks. If you manage to read through this rant, you can make a difference.

  348. Omg…. I really wish people would stop being so ignorant. That is whats wrong with america, why are people always tryin to make a big deal out of the smallest things. Other people are always tryin to say Don’t say this because it’s racist, don’t do this because it’s racist. Honestly I think it’s is rather racist to constanly remind others of there race or color. Such as everyone says don’t say the “N” word. It’s just a word and if people stop putting so much focus on it others wouldn’t make such a big deal out of it, and 95 percent of the time its not even BLACK people that are the ones complaining about things being racist. Stop always looking for a reason to complain. Just get along with everyone. I can’t expalin how many times i have heard that white people look down on us, well guess what sometimes its just because thats the way we act. If you act lower class the YES that’s how your gonna be treated., I’m black and to be honest the way some blacks act make me look at them in a differnt way, and last time i check my history book noone was native to america but Native Americans. So since whites, blacks,asians,hispanics and all others races came migrated here thats makes no other race surperior. As for the word Black and African American HELLO PEOPLE!!!!!!! its the same freaking thing. Gosh people argue over the dumbest stuff in 2011.

  351. This was and is my cousin. What happened to him was with doubt wrong, and down right dirty. I would appreciate if you all did not use the verbal abuses of words on this page. My cousin died because he whistled at a woman, should you all follow in those mens foot steps and kill each other with words, because someone called this picture disgusting? no. No-one should have been beaten this way, but it happened. Lets not forget our goal that this event reminds us of….not to hurt a person for ignorant reasons, rather its psyical or verbal, its all still bad. By the way I have a cousin on here I would like to meet. Every year the Tills in Detroit have a family reunion, contact me at shufordcrystal@yahoo.com or catch me on facebook as Crystal Till-Shuford, you will find more relatives on facebook also. Its about time our family met each other. I am Emmets cousin on his natural fathers side. We are the Till family originated out of georgia, residing in Detroit Michigan. Be Bless All!!

    • im so sorry for your loss i think it was tupid wat they did to him we are doing a paper about him in english class and wen our teacher told us how it happened someone goes “dang i wuld kill those guys thats just wrong” i think i speak for alot of people wen i say emmet was brave and is happy in a non racist heaven now. i wish he could have lived in out time wen people were not as racist as they used to be and he could have been much happier. i would have been his freind :)

  352. Why would someone do this to him.?Why they wanted him so badly dead that they beated him into a bloodly pulp just because he was black.’He was just a young boy enjoying life,he never intened to hurt a fly but instead someone choose to hurt him.’I’m glad that horrible man learned his lesson from what he did to Emmitt Till’s sorry if i’ve miss’d spelled it but he deserved better.I hope the person no who killed him is that he was a low life with no heart & he will pay the price’s for what he did to that poor handsome boy.’ # R.I.

  353. Why do many of you have to argue? Can’t you just be respectful in Emmett’s name? This was a horrific crime, black or white. Should not have deserved to happen to ANYBODY.

    Please think before you say something ignorant.

    R.I.P Emmett and all the poor souls who were lynched for no reason.

  360. I watched a documentary yesterday on poor Emmitt – yesterday was MLK’s day
    I have only one thing to say – what happened was wrong, horrendous – sad, and I just can’t imagine what fear and pain this child went thru – My prayers go out to his family –
    It was pointed out to me recently that we can’t change the past, only the future.
    Lets not let Emmitt’s death be in vain – the men who murdered him and the people who helped will face their final justice when they stand before God and Jesus .

  362. ” I am Emmets cousin on his natural fathers side. We are the Till family originated out of georgia, residing in Detroit Michigan. Be Bless All!!”

    Oh, you mean his father Louis Till?
    I’m sure you are aware he was court-martialed & executed by the U.S. Army in Europe 1945 for raping and killing civilian non-combatants. Not exactly a sweet and innocent black boy either.
    I guess the apple didn’t fall far from that tree.
    Maybe your boy Emmet should have kept his smart mouth shut.

    If you think America is so much better due to Civil Rights, you are sadly mistaken.
    Anyone who has seen your kind disrespect and destroy the city communities of Atlanta and Detroit should know that.
    I am trying to judge your people “not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”, but that character seems consistent with murder, drugs and animal-like behavior.
    Just telling it like it is, you Liberals can disagree all you like, but deep in your heart you know you wouldn’t drive through Detroit, let alone live there for a month.

  367. i’m white and 27 years old. shame on all of you. i’m with you young black lady. you are so right. we have to pray for this hatred to go away. but it’s not a color thing, black or white. it’s intolerance. i recently attended a civil rights discussion at my college and i was absolutely appalled. it was absolutely disgusting to know how much prejudice still exists in our world today. my husband is african and my children are black. there is nothing wrong with color. but there is something wrong with intolerance and ignorance. i’m sorry if we aren’t able to have a decent conversation here. prayer and faith is the answer. i’m sorry if you aren’t religious or have faith in a higher being. i’m not to judge your affiliation or lifestyles. KARMA… but this was a CHILD. it doesn’t matter the color. this was a defenseless child that acted on a comment from another child. it happens everyday. i’m ashamed just as much as the next white person of what happened in the past. but it is the past. this is our history. why live in the past? why not make a better world for our children? why not teach them tolerance and diversity. God lay peace onto our hearts. bless our families and children. soften our souls and sooth our minds. make love not war…

Although this is very very tragic and I pray that justice is served due to the fact that yet another young black man was taken TOO SOON because of RACIAL violence . But, this cannot be compared to the torture that emmitt till endured…. Any thoughts ?????

  377. People will go back and forth all day long, but in the end no matter how hard you fight one thing will remain true… we are ALL human. and we all are made up of the same basic parts with the same basic body functions. I see no colors and hear no accents. If we are the superior species why is it so hard for us to realize we are just creating war within our family? What happened to Emmett Till is absolutely appaling and is in no way shape or form justified, May his family find peace in knowing their beautiful child has been in a much better place than this ignorant world. It its so devestating to see people rather fight and spit hateful words rathering than agreeing on a fact that is undeniable.. the year is 2012 and all this nonsense needs to end. Racism will stay with some forever it seems but that does not have to speek for all of us. Take the time to learn something, like when to keep your mouth shut. Reverse your standing in a situation and tell me if your actions would still be the same. Life’s too short and unpredictable, live love and learn.

  382. First of all white boys cannot be BLOOD’S! ! I just wanna get that out there. Find a gang that allows you to be you like the Klu Klux Loan!! Second the only reason these types of things happened in 1955 is because African Americans we’re not educated. If it happened now there would be a blood bath and let’s just say not in the caucasians favor. Now ignorance is bliss but it’s 2012 and that was 1955!! Truth be told it’s sad that the child and his family suffered because of a ignorant bunch of people and they we’re still alive. Point I’m making is things happened to allot of people in those days and it was Fu%$*@ Up, But try that S%$# now and you will see who the minority really is!!

  383. This is not right at all… All humans are the same wheather it be your black white mixed race, disabled or simply perfect… We all cry we all eat we all feel we all bleed the same colour blood we all talk we all see and we all sleep… So why should the colour of our skins predict what we can and can’t do?…… This is why some black people today (2011-2012) still hate white people because of what they had done to our ancestors. Even though the world is ALMOST equal there are still some people that follow the old ways… Its a shame really, I am just glad I am born in this century and my daughter will never have to experiance something so mortifying..
    R.I.P Emmet Till and all the other black people who died for just living life.. My respects goes out to all of you

    • With all of the senseless killings through out history, some relatives, some friends, some neighbors, it breaks my heart read some of these comments. I know that we all can relate to what happen to this young man some fifty years ago. But it’s amazing to me that WE are still hating, and arguing about the same thing….HATE! Haven’t we seen enough pain, and shedded enough tears? Are we done yet? Enough is enough, please! Live, Love, and Pray!

      Ms. Parker!

      April 21, 2012 at 1:43 am

      • Very well said, Ms. Parker. It does get old hearing the same old hatred. I had never heard of this story unTILL I went to the civil rights museum a few weeks ago. Man! I was so incredibly shocked by the sight of this kid’s picture, it really rattled me for days after I saw it and read the story. How people can look at such brutal treatment of another human being and still spew hatred shows us a scary side to this society or perhaps the whole human race; how so many of us are so cold-hearted and barely civilized.

  386. I hadn’t heard of em it till until I was watching Ali and my 16 year old daughter pointed the news paper out and started telling me the story, I looked it up on my tablet after watching her cry while telling me about this child…. I’m sorry I was kept in the dark about this all my life and I’m sorry that my 16 year old has to feel so bad about a baby boy that was gone long before she was even born ….. people can say what they want about this babies photo but at the end of the day what happened to him was wrong and uncalled for… if someone would have told his parents what had happened he would have got just punishment, but never so hatefuly and horriabley killed… what happened to this baby should have never happened….. it is what it is it is murder and anyone who can’t look at this photo and not have a stupid remark about it should not even start typing, just logout and walk away…. this baby is worth more then your stupid dumb ass remarks about his photo even after all these years he still ain’t getting treated the way he deserves, if I had been alive and at his casket I would have leaned in kiss that baby and cried…….if you ain’t got nothing nice to say about him get the fuck off this page….. And Yes I’m ( white)….. everyone deserves better then this ……

  387. I am a white South African. I know that my ancestors are responsable for Apartheid and I am not proud of it. Yes, it is true that the government and lots of white people killed and hurt black people but I want the world to know this: in the four years prior to our first democratic election the black people killed more black people than in the whites did during the whole Apartheid regime. White people in South Africa are now being brutally murdered, and yes I know som of you will argue that it’s justice, but is it justice to tie up a 87 year old woman with blade wire and throw boiling water over her? No, so stop being biased. here’s a little joke for you. Fuck the black rhino save the white man!

    July 26, 2012 at 6:38 pm

  397. WOW!!! All that over a picture, It’s sad to say that we as Americans still “don’t get it” look at everyone tearing each other down and taking sides….. This was an event that sparked the flame that created change in our history., Not just for blacks, but for all races. Discrimination, prejudice, or racism towards any ethic group is in my opinion “ignorant” The purpose of the picture was to paint a picture of how harmful hatred was becoming. Most of you no matter what color your skin is look at this picture and see what his mom wanted America to see… A little boy beaten to death for being a little black and behaving as such. This was a way of waking us up to the injustice of it all. To open our eyes to the destruction that we were causing the HUMAN RACE. The name calling and the finger pointing is useless because every time anyone of you all responds in a negative manner to disrespect someone you are taking two steps back for every step forward…

    • I saw an Emmett Till biography on TV recently, and I am still haunted by his photos, the horrible circumstances of his death, his mother’s anguish, and the complete in-your-face injustice of Emmett’s murderers being set free. I was born here and am of hispanic origin, but I am a proud American. What happened to Emmett was unspeakably cruel, as well as many of our African American brothers and sisters who suffered similar fates; but to compare what happened in the 1950′s hardly compares to the treatment of African Americans today. Only in America can a great movement like the Civil Rights, with the public awareness and justices that followed, arise out of ashes. We are not the Taliban where people thought as inferior suffer and have no voice for many years. We right the wrongs in this country – or at least try to. We should never forget Emmett Till so that this is never repeated again. I believe what divides us most are our economic differences – not racial. Every time the country tries to move beyond race and only towards once race – American – politicians and other public profiteers like those in Hollywood – trump the race card and stir up emotions of the past to divide us. This election is a perfect example. People that chose to vote for Romney – are thought to be mostly white and are accused of racism because they will not vote for Obama. This is a bigoted notion. There are African Americans who will vote for Romney too. Why isn’t Bill Maher who is floating this concept considered racist because he assumes this notion about Romney voters. By the same token, why aren’t African Americans who by all accounts are voting for Obama by 95% considered racist because they are voting for Obama and not the “white guy”. My point is that racism, while it may exist in some circles, is not in the same vein as it is was in our past yet that is being advanced today for political gain. Americans exist of all stripes, but our differences make our country interesting, dynamic, inclusive, and great. Believing in the horrible racist stereotypes of the past is something politicians and public figures try to advance, and it detriorates us as a nation and makes Emmett Till’s murder even more senseless because instead of learning from it and trying to change our minds and ways for the better, we fall into the “hatred” and “injustice” trap. It is as if 57 years have not passed. Emmett Till and his mom are together and in a better place, and I hope their legacy as well as Martin Luther King’s will someday help us see the light and as Lincoln once said follow “the better angels of our nature”.

  401. Looking at young Emmett photo, just remind me how racism has created so many negative things. The evil insecure bastard that committed this crime to on a child should : “burn in hell”. Emmett was a New Yorker, we don’t pick friends or partners according to color : only positive vibes and love. The old school hillbillies are nothing but “poor white trash.

White or Black involved this should have never happened to emmett or any human being and for a person to do this they have no heart at all and emmett will get his justice because there is no greater justice than from God we all have a consquence for our sins so for everyone invovled with emmetts murder will have there judgemment day.

  404. I Find this truly sad That people are arguing about this. What’s done is done. By the time Roy and J.W. were tried they were already 80 something years old so they were probably gonna die anyways. What sucks though is that Emmett Didn’t really see justice at all. I’m mixed with white AND black and I wanna say to all of you who’ve said racist comments, shame on your ass. We get all defensive when people starting talking about our race but when we get to talking it aint nothing but a fucking chicken wing. Suck it up and stop being cowards. you wouldn’t say racist stuff in the real world Would you? No, I thought so. Cause this isn’t the 40′s or 50′s anymore. The real world will eat your ass and spit you right back out. So all you people that are making the racist comments I hope karma bites you really hard cause you’re making a fool out of yourself and your ethnicity. Emmett Till was blackskin boy. So he was born to die.He didn’t have the equality we have today. That’s why he died. Not cause he allegedly “whistled” at Roy Bryants wife. It’s called a HATE crime for a reason.g

  405. Forgive us, Lord! For we know not what we do… yall, please stop hating each other. A lot of the comments are very hurtful! Its always going to be someone whos gonna say something ignorant and cruel, not only because thats how they feel, but because they want to spark a negative response and they probably dont no any better. Just dont feed into it, people! Ignorance is only fueled by a “reaction” to it. Most of these people make these hurtful remarks because they are hiding safely behind a computer, and would never have the guts to say it in someone’s face. So let them have their little “bravery time”, because im sure its the only life they have. We need to all get along and try to find a way to heal this world! Everybody needs to just live, love, and et all that madness go! Respect this young man (Mr. Tillet) and his mother and family! Repent and ask God to save our souls! I love everybody and i wanna see you all in Heaven! <3 <3 <3

  408. I’ve always heard this young man’s name, but never really heard the untold stories. I’m reminded growing up in Detroit during the riots and not understanding what was really going on, and being unaware of the real injustices of racism, discrimination, and poverty. My parents pushed us to get an education; be strong, be confident, and to be respectful, but without a deeper understanding of why our parents encouraged us so desperately, the essence of the Emmett Till’s death is a faded memory or absent history with our younger generation. We cannot solely depend on today’s educational system to teach the new generations how racial ignorance, divisive discrimination, and economic poverty can be so dangerous. History teaches us that “if we no knot, iff we understand knot, then we bee four-ever en prison,” and repeating the same mistakes. If this reality escapes some of you today, then simply read the forgone conversations of some of the ignorant that have replied to the emotions of Emmett Till’s death.
    My parents use to say “that education is powerful and once you have it, then no one take it away. This education and understanding allows some of you to grasp that the misspelling here were intentional and only the ignorant will believe it’s acceptable and OK!

  409. One of the biggest problems in America is the turning a blind eye to the ugly truths that have taken place in this country. The second biggest problem is citizens that are afraid or unwilling to recognize the problems of our country and the courage to have a civilized dialogue . Remember, an injustice to one of us is an injustice to all of us!!!!!

  411. I would not want to be a person of color even today. I see everyone as equal, but black men in the South are still treated harshly. I want equal rights for all. Everyone deserves the truth. Without this picture, we might know Martin Luther King,Jr. He made things better for all. He taught us when there is nothing else we can do, just stand. These are the words in the Bible. He taught me, a white woman, to see someone’s heart before seeing their color. He taught all of us to be kind when we stand up for what we believe. Violence is not the answer! Cursing is not the answer! Calling someone a name, it is not the answer! Love those that despise you. For you will heap coals upon their head! Respect those that hate you, for you will be rewarded. This is what our forefathers stood for including those of this century.

  412. Yes! It is a sick, disgusting photo and we should all take a good long look at it and remember that not so long ago our black brothers and sisters were treated to horrible indignities. How sad that just because of a persons skin color, they were beaten, murdered, humiliated and not treated with the respect that us white people have always received. Take a good long look people so this never happens again to a fellow human being.

  431. This picture is disgusting. Disgusting that anyone could do this to another human being because of their skin color. Disgusting that a mother and family had to suffer such a heartbreaking tragedy.Disgusting that people are on this site seeing the effects of racism only to be attacking each other for the very same reason this boy and many others were killled. I care about people regardless of their skin color. We have to share the same earth and shouldn’t keep tearing each other down. Slavery was a long time ago..majority of us don’t even stem from the blood line of slave owners. You cant hold it against us just as we cant hold all black people accountable for a violent crime one black person committed. Also you seem to forget many many white soldiers died in the civil war for the freedom of black people…also where I am from we had the under ground railroad ..you forget white poeple put their butts on the line to help. We’re not all ignorant red necks that felt people should be worth less than cattle.

    • Those days are over because of all thos people mostly blacks, but also whites, who fought bravely against the oppressive segregation and inequality of Jim Crow, a system that allowed what happened to Emmett Tills and to many others to go unpunished.

      Don’t think that those days ended by magic or because Southern racists became nice all of sudden. It was a long, difficult struggle that took a lot of guts and great risk. Be grateful to those of great courage and conviction, many still amongst us, who took part in the civil rights struggle – don’t take it all for granted.

    Remember despite what happened one good thing came out if it laws were changed.

    One question puzzles me though, why was there never a re- trial on the murderes.

    Today I read that Tasmyn killer Zimmerman was found nit guilty, so sad… he should of sat…he took a life…..

    • Because you cannot try a person for the same crime twice. Currently the federal government is trying to get around that by calling it something else. Kind of like if you robbed someone, and were found not guilty, and then the feds deciding to charge you with a civil rights violation if the person happened to be of a different race. If the person was the same race, well tough, but if they were different, then the feds try to get a second try.

    • So true. People sacrificed everything to get equal rights, and now people do not take advantage of having the same rights and possibilities as everyone else.

      • Racial tension appears to be a issue not only here in South Africa but world wide, yet we as a country are most targeted with regard to this issue. We are now 20 years or so into the so called new south africa, yet racial tension is rife. Its the young generation that need to be taught, that their should be no racial issues, yet parent’s still poison their kids minds about days gine by. Black and white alike. Its true blacks kill blsvks, and whites kill whites. The most arrogant ppl here in our country is unfortunately the blacks, as they still feel they have been done in in the past. Despite the fact we have a policy in this country” should a black man and a white man go for the same interview for a job, irrespective thst the white person has a university degree and the black man only has a college degree he will get the job” They get alot if privelages more than days gone by, yet they remain arrogant. The white person gets arrogant as they feel the black ppl get mote prevliges. Do in my opinion is a viscious circle.One wonders when we can finally live in peace and harmony.

  442. Great thing about the internet is there is no color. Some comments on here are obviously written by a black pretending to be white to stir up hate…ain’t that right “whiteman”. ..and some are written by whites pretending to be black. The race baiters and haters love to keep us stirred up against each other and the ignorant blindly follow their rhetoric. I think there is probably 10 percent ugly hating racist whites at one end and 10 percent ugly hatn racist blacks at the other end. All the rest of us 80 percent need to tell them to get on away from us , we are tired of their same old hate and are trying to make our world a better place than the trash they are peddling. Now what your thinking is this a white dude or black guy with spell check…lol…just kidding…lighten up and be happy we live in better times than Emmitt had to endure.

I am a white woman and ill tell you I’m ashamed that this happened. To all of you and your nasty remarks, go to hell. This was a little boy who was brutally murdered for no reason. Nor is ANY reason good enough for what he had to endure for however long. How would you feel if this was your son? I have three children and I wouldnt know how to go one day if this happen to one of them. You have no right to judge a person because of race. Only God has that right. And I thank him right now that he is keeping emmitt safe in heaven. God bless the realitives of this sweet little boy.

Then it’s also sad because people are talking about this little boy like they dont care. Im glad to say that i care nd thats im really sad that this is what happened to him. Im also an AFRICAN -AMERICAN! but u people have to watch what u say and how u say it because it can really hurt someone else from this race. Last but not least may Emmett Till Rest In Peace!!!!!!!1

  450. I have to say that this picture is disgusting… I don’t care what colour he was, I do however care that this poor child was tortured and carved into the awful state he was in this picture. I couldn’t even tell what colour he was , as the butchers had desecrated him so badly. I must say that I actually applaud his mother for having the strength and courage to put her baby on show like this, they say everything happens for a reason and I know a lot of good has come from the actions of those like Emmett’s mother. For me personally, and I’m sure for a lot of others, regardless of race or belief’s, the ‘disgusting’ element is centred wholly on what a child endured at the hands of sadistic monsters. I wish his descendent’s all the best and find it vile and abhorrent that people are using this child’s image and name to try and re-stoke fires that burnt out before my generation. Emmett’s family suffered all those years ago and are now having to re-live all of that pain and negativity all over again because of the asinine comments of a few attention seeking people. Jake your comments about the plight of the Irish was a very good example of how many races have been persecuted in one way or another and I commend you for that. In the united kingdom, England in particular, our children learn in schools all about the plights of the Jews and the blacks, even though that had nothing to do with the English, yet my daughter knows only what I’ve taught her about the hostilities between the English and Irish. My father was Irish and my mother English (with Jewish mixed in) and I married an Irish man, but on St Patrick’s day My daughter has never been allowed to celebrate in school… My point is, the war happened in the past. I have forefathers who fought on both sides, and in all likelihood probably at the same time but that doesn’t mean we should still hate one another, does it? We need to look at images like this one and try to remember that we NEVER want this to happen again. There are many good opinions on this thread -and many stupid ones too- but we must try to remember that what our forefathers did to one another was their ignorance, please don’t let it be ours. I hope this child is resting in peace!

    On to the fact that this boy’s no longer in the casket that his mother laced him in, I think there should be answers… not only is it inconceivable that these things still occur, it’s downright despicable that it’s happened to a boy who’s persecution-able abuse and murder put him there in the first place!
