In August 1955, a 14 year old black boy from Chicago by the name of Emmett Till went to visit relatives in Money, Mississippi. He was beaten, his eyes were gouged out, he was shot, and his body was dumped into the Tallahatchie River. Why? For whistling at a white woman. According to GlobalGrind.com; "Emmett's mother, insisted on a open-casket funeral in Chicago, because she wanted the world to see the face of racism." His Murderers, Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam were found not guilty.
Fast-forward to August 9, 2014 an unarmed 18 year old black high school graduate, Michael Brown, was shot to death by a white Ferguson, Missouri police officer. He was shot multiple times and his body was left in the street by police for 4.5 hours. No indictment for Darren Wilson, Brown's killer.
The United States justice system continues to fail people of color. People are seeing the true colors of their family members, coworkers, and friends on social media. The outburst of racial slurs and racist comments portray the ignorance that still stifles our country. We're nothing more than a bunch of niggers, porch monkeys, jungle apes, coons, jiggaboos, and black sambos to some people. It is really time for our people to wake up!
BLACK LIVES MATTER!!
