None of that warranted Emmett Till getting murdered. What made this murder quite bad was that his killers got away with it, and his mother wanted Jet Magazine to see it. A teenager murdered over something not worth killing for.

What is just as sickening are those who think it was okay to kill Till.

Even if he couldn't be trusted, there was still no excuse for murdering. What saddens me is that there are people who still think in terms of "Emmett Till deserved it".

Nope. it was my thinking cap. You should get one.

I understand why you might have doubts about what I said about Carolyn Bryant, but it is impossible to disagree rationally with what I said about Emmett Till and his father. Your use of the charge of racism to keep facts out of the discussion is itself cynically racist.

Those people have the intelligence of a mentally challenged gnat. There will always be people like this in the world, unfortunately.

It's not an excuse. I don't need an excuse to tell the truth.

His father has plenty to do with it. He gave Emmett half his DNA.

I think you need a better excuse.
You never answered the question about the picture.

There ya go as usual. Let's throw some racist sh###t in there too. I don't think you have any idea what "redneck" even means. Don't let that stop you from tossing some hate for another race though. You go girl.

I agree that it isn't intelligent to have such a hateful mentality. What those frat boys did is inexcusable. That would be like me going to Seattle, posing in front a plaque dedicated to the memory of Kris Kime and then posing in front of it with a gun, or the middle finger. There's no reason to do it. It's pure ugliness to do so. And some people trying to excuse the actions of those frat boys, well, I shouldn't be surprised anymore.

Yeah, the idea of an Ole Miss KA who is a redneck is pretty funny.
