Emmett Till would be 80 today but on August 28th of 1955 A white woman lied resulting in his kidnapping, beating, & lynching as a 14 year old child. His killers were Acquitted & 62 years later in 2017, the white woman finally admitted she lied! This Karen phenomenon isn’t new.pic.twitter.com/6epomnghmK
And the courts believed her Courts and legal system haven’t changed much either
Carolyn Bryant is her name and she's still alive!!!!
How can she live with herself!!
This unbelievable incident will always be a stain on the American flag, just like the murder of
#stephenlawrence is a stain on the British Union Flag.
A NYT editorial said, the admission that portions of the woman's testimony were false "is a reminder of how black lives were sacrificed to white lies ... It also raises anew the question of why no one was brought to justice."
RIP Emmett Till
Have recently seen an essay describing Goldilocks as the original Karen.
