Reopening the Emmett Till case after 60 years,
after his mother and other close family that should have felt the victory of Justice are dead. After the "white" people who murdered him and cheered his murder have lived full, free lives.

This has nothing to do with justice
This is a White American pattern:
They they steal the life of a "black" person in the most depraved & barbaric way;
then their cops protect the murderer, their judges sit on benches and calls the murder justified and the white community claps their hands or shrugs their shoulders
They live comfortably with the blood of "Black" people on their hands & at their feet for decades; so long that their children are born stained in our blood and marked by their crimes
They go on, morphing into new phases of #whiteness leaving behind thousands more like Emmet Till
Until the moment when the world is beginning to question White American morality, or when they need to hide a surge of racially biased policies.....

Then they remember Emmet Till, because they know we have never forgotten him.

It's about morally disarming.....not Justice.
Research it and you'll see, it happens every sixty or seventy years;
the epiphany to say a crime that white people justified was wrong after all

Are you telling me, it takes sixty or seventy years for White America to realize that bashing someone face into disfigurement is wrong
I see people saying that Emmet Till was killed because of a white woman's lies, because Carolyn Bryant said he whistled when he didn't.

I say NO.....
Emmet Till was murdered to uphold the fallacy of #whiteness, to prove that any whim or displeasure of a Caucasian person was more than valid and natural, than a "Black" person's God given right to exist in their presence.

What if it was true....what is he did whistle?
So what?
Every time I read a headline that said "Carolyn Bryant admits she lied"
as if his murder would still be looked at "understandably justified" because of (you know) it was a different time and all.

It was NEVER justified
Black people didn't need Carolyn Bryant's word to know that
Finally I'll say this; Emmet Till always deserved JUSTICE...he deserved it 60 years ago.

But know this
Whenever America wants to look like the bastion of ever progressing Justice they us our stories....stories of the people they continue to brutalize & victimize.
Black Stories.
If you remember nothing else remember this

Whiteness has a pattern
It murders you, cheers your death, justifies the shedding of your blood in courtrooms as legal and then years later holds your body up as a shield and a tool to prove their humanity.

Emmet Till
To my brothers & sisters who share this the #DescendantsOfTheSlaves I know that it doesn't always seem like it and as usual, others want you to think less of yourselves than you are...

But you have been and still are the moral compass of the world--
even in death
what *if*
they *use* our stories
