THIS is what racism has done in the United States and around the World for too long…in 1955, Emmett Till (a 14 year old boy) was brutally murdered by two white men for “flirting with a white woman”. They were acquitted and then confessed and detailed the murder in a magazine article. His Mother insisted on a public funeral service with an open casket to show the World the brutality of the crime. What’s the difference between this case and the Trayvon Martin case? NOTHING. It’s just a different year…#KillRacism #ArrestZimmerman #JusticeForTrayvon
