If you want to talk about that subject, start your own thread. This thread is neither the time or the place for it.

That is one giant deflection from the point being made.

Well, you said you didn't care. Of course you would make such a comment.

How does it affect you?
Well, I have family who fled Mississippi during the 1940s. My grandparents were part of the 2nd wave of the Great Migration. My father was born and raised in Wisconsin as a result of this. My grandparents could not live with the tyranny of the plantation-like society that was mid-20th century Mississippi. It could have easily been a member of my family that was subjected to what Emmett Till was subjected to.

And something else. I don't have any family members that dealt with the Holocaust or Japanese internment camps. I'm not going to pose in front of a Holocaust monument or a monument to Japanese-Americans interned in the camps with the intentions of mocking them. I'm not going to pose with guns. I understand right from wrong, and I'm going to be outraged if someone did such a thing at a WWII memorial, Holocaust memorial, internment camp,etc. I don't put up with crap like that. It's called empathy. It's called knowing better.

Like I said, if you want to talk about black on white rape, go start a thread about it. You only mention it on this thread because you want to deflect from the subject of this thread. Like I said, this was neither the time or the place for it. You want to talk about that subject, nothing is stopping you from starting a thread about it. Just don't bring it here.

Ok, you don't "put up with crap like that." What are you going to do about it? How does this personally affect you other than being 'outraged'?
I still have relatives who stayed in Mississippi into the 50s and 60s. Had my grandparents stayed, it could have still be them.

And it isn't about whether or not it affects my life. It's called having empathy for other people. How hard is that to understand?

It sure is. And deflection is a form of evasion. That is often a sign of being uncomfortable with the subject matter.

As for the subject matter, the fraternity should kick those students out entirely. Make an example of them.

Nothing Emmett Till did was worth killing him. Nothing. Making a pass at a woman is not a cause for killing someone. What those men did was murder. Anyone who feels otherwise is showing alot of moral bankruptcy.

Disgusting pukes. They should all be forced to view the pic of Till's face as he layed in his casket.
