Something to think about today…
While we’re all cheering for Johnny Depp’s win (as we should be), let’s take a moment of silence for a young man who was also a victim of female lies, which led to his murder.
67 years ago, Emmett Till was brutally murdered at the age of 14 because a white woman accused him of flirting with her and it offended her. A Black man flirting with a white woman did not fly in the 1950s.
This FALSE accusation led to his murder. Remember, 14-years-old, not even a man yet, falsely accused of offending a woman in her 20s. And his murder left him unrecognizable.
Think about what his Mama thought when she saw him in the coffin, his face looking like chopped meat he was so disformed. (You can find the photo via Google search).
Many years later the female accuser admitted she LIED.
This story not only involves a man being a victim to false accusations, but of course, racism. ….
FOURTEEN YEARS OLD, A BABY!!
This should have never happened. RIP, Emmett Till.
