I wouldn't take it personal ... but if you do ... oh well.
Why do you assume that, and not that they were simply expressing their own beliefs? Because it makes you feel better to think that?

Sorry, but this is a really lame defense of an obvious racist photo op these lovely young southern boys seem to be very proud of, judging by the looks on their faces.

Back to speech, if I advocate pissing on the grave of Emmit Till, what crime have I committed? I understand those using him to further their playing of the victim card will scream with outrage (per their agenda), but where is the crime?
It is Orwell, and 1984 to these CONTROL FREAKS. They want to be able to decide for YOU what is hate speech, and it will be anything in which they disagree. Like political, economic and social topics.

They want an East German, STASI like enforcement agency to enforce their "politically correct" version of speech. Loretta Lynch, Obama's AG, was calling for prosecution of people that said anything anti Muslim.

What do you think they were trying to convey with this picture?

What decent human being would what to be a part of a picture like that, and even worse is people trying to justify it.
Absolutely. I agree with all of this.

And, yeah, maybe they do hate black people ... A lot of people do. And a lot of black people hate white people. Round and round we go.
Sure desecrating a monument to Till is surely a great way to enrage the left along with anyone else that has any degree of morality. I would love to meet the parents of this trio, I’m betting the apples didn’t fall far from the tree.

Nice response, they’re all bad people, reminds me of someone.

Good for you for supporting racism as long as it "breaks the left's balls." It's refreshing to see someone admit it.

I've known bad people from good families and vice versa.
Odds are they are in good company with over 200 likes on Instagram.

I haven't seen anywhere the parents out there denouncing what their child have done either, that speaks for itself. No statements anywhere of their disapproval what they did.

Those parents knew the minute the boys pledged KA what they had raised. It has not been a secret for over 60 years.
