I should write something here but if I start I will not stop swearing and Emmet Till's memory and his mother's suffering deserve better than that. Twitter had something to say today.
Emmett Till's story regularly gave me nightmares as a child.

Most people learned about Emmett Till from a bias perspective. When it was really a lie. Remember THIS is what's taught in our history books

Emmett Till became one of the prime examples of why black mothers warned their little black boys to stay away from white women

This woman's lies led to the murder of Emmett Till and all she offers amounts to a shrug. White supremacy is evil y'all.

So many people act like the racialized terror of the Jim Crow era was centuries ago. These people are still alive! https://t.co/O2lBtqEFuh

So the woman who accused Emmett Till of "flirting" with her finally confessed she made the whole thing up. I want to burn the world.
