Last night, while on Facebook, a story came through on The Root news-feed that ran this story. I read it. And literally almost lost it. In 1955 on a hot day in August; a young boy went to the store with his cousin to buy some $2.00 bubble gum and a young 21 year old Carolyn Bryant was at the store as well. She accused Emmett of coming on to her–while he and his cousin came into the store, whistling at her as she walked by. As was typical, her husband became enraged. Later that night, he and his half brother, went to the house where Emmett was staying while visiting Mississippi from Chicago; drug him out of the house, took him to an undisclosed location, beat, raped and sodomized him–pulled out his teeth, and cut of his genitals and stuffed them in his mouth.His body was found on August 31, 1955. He was only 14. His mother, Mamie Till, although grieved, when she retrieved the body, her decision literally would change America. Mamie, with absolute courage, told the undertaker to have an open casket funeral. Why? Because she wanted the world to see the evil that was truly in America. Jet magazine ran these photos. It stunned the nation.
Oh, Emmett! You poor baby! How you suffered. We have cried for you for 62 years!
This old LYING BITCH, lived out her life, knowing full well Emmett had not whistled at her! I WANT HER CHARGED! Carolyn Bryant lied on this child! That LIE caused his death at the hands of Grown WHITE MEN. He was only 14. JUSTICE cries out! God HATES LIARS, Carolyn Bryant. You and your husband laughed after the trial. But Emmett’s blood is on your head, witch! You got to live your life. But you cost the life of this poor baby! That LIE stole his legacy. God will charge you in the next life for this crime. You lived a LIE, Carolyn Bryant!–knowing all along what you did got an innocent 14 year old boy killed. I HOPE YOU DIE!
Everyone is angry about this. The story is all over social media. But I haven’t heard a word in the mainstream about it. Hhhhmm. I wonder why.
Who Emmett Till could have been, we’ll never know.
But one thing is for sure, the lies of white women historically, have been the catalyst of many Black men being criminalized, imprisoned or murdered and lynched.
How much bloodshed has been spilled because of these troglodyte, genetic defects?
Whatever the fallout will be from this admission by this woman is all up in the air.
Personally, I feel that she should be charged and her family forced to pay restitution to the Till Estate. Will this happen? You know the answer.
