The Murder of Emmett Till

on August 7, 2013

On July 25,1955, Emmett Till a fourteen year old African-American teenager was kidnapped and brutally murdered by two white men who tortured him, beat him, gouged out one of his eye’s, tore his entire jaw from his face, split his head in half with an ax, cut off his penis, shot him in the head several times and mutilated his entire body for two days in a barn until he finally died. The wife of one of the men said she could hear the color boy screaming all night until after a couple of days it stopped. They then took his lifeless body and tied a 70-pound cotton gin fan around his neck with barbwire, so his body will not submerge from the river. The two men, Bryant and Milam were both acquitted of Till’s kidnapping and murder just like Mark Zimmerman was found not guilty of Trayvon Martin murder. Where is the justice for our black teenage boys of color? This goes to show hatred and racism is still alive today as it was yesterday.
