If there was any news involving Carolyn Bryant, I wanted to cover it. I did hear about that Till movie coming out this year, but I didn’t want to make any mention of it until the movie was released. However, warning signs went off when I saw that Whoopi Goldberg was cast to play Emmett Till’s grandmother.
Once I heard about this story where Whoopi opened her mouth about this atrocity, I just HAD to talk about it. Trust me, Candace Owens and Kanye West haven’t been the only ones selling out in a hardcore fashion with that infamous Paris Fashion Show stunt, but this case is just as appalling.
Whoopi said that Carolyn Bryant doesn’t need to be in jail and should just admit to what she did.
ARE. YOU. FREAKING. SERIOUS?!?!?! This is low even for you! I’m not expecting her to be some major activist, but I know she knows better. I’m glad Phil used the example of the Jewish community not forgiving Nazis and how they are still getting locked up despite being centenarians even this year, so how on earth could Whoopi or any sane person defend what this murderer did. She was responsible for a lynching, got others to kill Emmett, admitted she was lying about being harassed or assaulted, and never spent a day in jail for her crimes. Now the mainstream media is going to use Whoopi’s comment as a rhetorical dodge and encourage people to forgive her. I’m not like her, so I’m definitely going to call her out. She doesn’t represent me, and she certainly doesn’t represent the Till family. I’m definitely not going to watch that Till movie, especially after this nonsense.
I’m not a fan of Whoopi Goldberg whether it’s her acting, stand-up, or her stuff on The View even though I don’t watch that show. She’s said and done stupid things, but this is the most offensive thing she’s done in her career so far. Keep in mind, this is the same person who defended the crows in the Dumbo movie and believed that they should’ve kept the “I Ain’t Seen No Elephant Fly” song let alone having the characters in the remake (even Tim Burton was smart enough NOT to include them). I’ve said this multiple times, but this bears repeating…the lead crow’s name is Jim! Speaking of Disney, this is also the same person who played a character while portraying Black stereotypes and using her “hood” voice. Yes, I’m obviously talking about Shenzi the hyena from The Lion King, but you knew I was going to make that potshot given the reputation I got here (I’m sure Carolyn Bryant thinks all Black people are like that character or the other hyenas). This is straight-up blasphemous what she did and I don’t see how any person could find what she said to be good.
Whoopi, you’re a godforsaken traitor for defending that white supremacist devil!
Think I’m going to stop talking about the Carolyn Bryant situation and how she literally got away with murder? Think again! I’ve been trying to find more information despite the slap in the face that was the grand jury in Mississippi not indicting this elderly white supremacist low-life (did this involve an all-white jury?). She admitted in that unpublished memoir that the police at the time would escort her and her family at the time away from her hometown given the elevated tensions back then. Her ex-husband and her brother-in-law admitted they kidnapped and murdered Emmett Till and no one still did anything. And people tell me this country is based on law and order! What massive lies! They literally protected a murderer. Could you imagine if someone like R. Kelly got police protection to avoid scandals and avoid prison simultaneously? There would be mass hysteria and riots in this country if that happened!
There was even a quote in this article that the Mississippi authorities in the 50s declined to arrest her in order to “protect white womanhood”. Wow! That’s a double dose of the skin-color privilege AND pointing out her gender to make sure Carolyn Bryant didn’t face a minute of jail time. How sickening! I don’t want to hear ANYBODY complaining about OJ Simpson or Bill Cosby since they still got prison time and the latter didn’t get that “too old” excuse like she did as well. I’m seething hearing that her living into her 80s so far is somehow “punishment enough”. DON’T GIVE ME THAT EXCUSE! Again, Nazis have been arrested at her age and older for their past crimes, so she deserves to face judgment just like them for the murder of an innocent 14-year-old boy that she lied about. As much as she deserves to be demonized, Carolyn Bryant wasn’t the first or last woman to pull off something like that. I hope other demons like her are exposed and get punished. There needs to be more pressure to see her locked up, and I don’t care if she has a bloody oxygen tank and is legally blind. She got to live while Emmett Till didn’t get a 2nd chance despite not doing anything wrong to begin with.
I found an older article from this year. Even though this was written before the missing warrant was found, it did contain information that I was intrigued by. Here’s the link for you to read.
I knew Carolyn Bryant’s oldest son was Roy Jr. and it was recently revealed that he’s still alive while living with his mom at 71 years old. Her younger son is Lamar who is at least a couple of years younger than Roy Jr. Sadly, there’s not a lot of information about the Bryant family, so not many people know about her son’s work history, education, who they’re married to, etc. Even Google seems to have trouble pulling a lot of stuff about them besides very basic and vague things not far off from this link or what I’m telling you now.
It’s a shame how the Bryant family gets to live in obscurity for the crimes of their parents. It’s like the whole country is defending this devil by keeping their whereabouts secret. I could mention what might happen if everyone found out where all the Bryants live, but I’ll let you all use your imagination. Again, this needs to be a bigger story even with all the craziness going on in the country. What is Roy Jr. doing besides taking care of his murderous and victim-playing mom? Where is Lamar and what has he been up to? Those are questions on the tip of the iceberg. Emmett Till and his family deserve to get justice and that involves Carolyn being punished.
Injustice really is prevalent in America and I won’t be convinced otherwise. That and it’s obviously color-coded.
I found an update today and it looks like Carolyn Bryant was finally found and this was her first public appearance in 20 years supposedly. Bryant is living in hospice care in Kentucky with her 71-year-old son and pet dog. She has cancer, is legally blind, and is on an oxygen tank. I don’t care that she’s sick and under hospice care. She needs to still do time. I doubt she’s remorseful and it’s sickening for how long she’s gotten away with murder. This is important and I hope the pressure continues.
It’s interesting how I found out this update because of a British news source instead of an American one which has only been up for hours. Please read the article above for more information.
I did find a slight update to this ongoing story regarding the recovered 1955 warrant for Carolyn Bryant. There was a book that was made public about the Emmett Till situation that was originally going to be archived at the University of North Carolina. Since news spread about the missing warrant, the author decided to make this book public. Carolyn Bryant told her husband Roy not to hurt Emmett Till, but that’s a load of crap. It’s like she had to link up one lie after another to try and keep her story straight which is failing. I suck at lying and even I can tell this is obviously not true or matching the other stories. Demetra Kaye from the African Diaspora News Network gave her 2 cents on the subject while also giving this recent information. I just get angrier every time I hear something new about this massive delay with the warrant and how this is being handled. Don’t get me wrong, I thought it was cool how there was a #PullUpSummer moment by going to addresses where Carolyn lived including a nursing home. Hopefully, she gets found and is forced to answer for the murder and subterfuge she’s responsible for. I don’t care if she is in her 80s or 800 years old. Carolyn needs to face the consequences of the murder of Emmett Till. Pardon the political parody, but LOCK HER UP! Tell me why she doesn’t deserve that phrase shouted at her as she goes to court and eventually the pen. I have no sympathy for vile lifeforms (I will not call her human) when others have been killed or jailed for far less assuming if they did anything horrible at all!
I’m not sorry for putting these pictures of Emmett Till on here. Some of you may not have heard of this situation, especially my non-American audiences. Keep in mind Emmett was only FOURTEEN when those white supremacists slaughtered him all because of Carolyn Bryant’s lie. They mobbed him, profusely beat him up, shot above his ear, thrown in the Tallahatchie River, and there was a cotton gin fan blade anchoring his corpse. His body was found by two boys who were busy fishing in the river and found his body. I want you to gaze at his disfigured body knowing that information. If you think that it’s okay to erase the history of slavery, racism, abuse, and white supremacist terrorism or God forbid you think Emmett Till deserved it, then unfollow me right now because I don’t need people like you around here. I get that I’ve been talking about Emmett Till a lot lately once the 1955 warrant resurfaced in that Mississippi courthouse, but I need to do my best to spread what information whether in the past or present. It sickens me how you have politicians and special interest groups who want to erase this uncomfortable history of America where innocent blood was shed. Not to get too theological on you, but the shedding of innocent blood pollutes the land (Psalms 106:38). Emmett Till wasn’t the only one, but he was the one that got enough attention to kickstart the Civil Rights Movement. Does anyone want to tell me that this is a blameless country or God’s country? Only a devil would do something like this and it’s infuriating how people like Carolyn got away with it. Let me ask you a question. When was the last time in America when a white boy was lynched because of a Black woman lying on him and Black men slaughtered that aforementioned boy? Exactly. If that isn’t proof positive of the racially-coded double standards in this nation, I don’t know what is. If that hypothetical situation did happen, it would be all over the news and the Black assailants would be executed on site. Stop preaching to me to be positive all the time when there are catacombs for closets here. There are too many people excusing evil acts like these.
Screw this blogging hiatus. I’m staying on top of this story.
I’m keeping my eyes peeled for any updates or any angles to the recently discovered warrant buried in a Mississippi courtroom since 1955. There have been some protests including a symbolic eviction notice to the last known address of Carolyn Bryant (assuming if she still lived there) and there was a spotting of protesters showing up at a nursing home that she supposedly lived at, too.
I wondered how the legal process would play out other than the DOJ sitting on their hands, so I thought about the legal stuff on the state level. If Bryant gets charged, she would definitely have to go all the way to MS from North Carolina since the crime happened in the Magnolia State in the town of Money (seriously, that’s sadly the name of the town where Emmett Till was murdered). The AG Lynn Fitch wasn’t going to pursue charges. If I were to make a guess, I think she doesn’t want to send someone who looks like her mom to the pen. There are other officials, but they’ve been silent to the best of my knowledge. Did I forget to mention the DA is Black? I have a bad feeling the could be a sellout if he isn’t throwing the book at Bryant. I hope the pressure continues where the system is forced to charge and arrest this white supremacist murderer who’s already in her 80s.
I found out about this story and I’m going to follow this case to the best of my ability. Big up Lisa Cabrera for making these videos so far let alone with other topics. I’m also surprised that other bloggers have been spreading the original story about the warrant around because this deserves to be widespread. So there are FINALLY people going after Carolyn Bryant who is supposedly in North Carolina and a manuscript has come out about this case. Bryant seems to be changing her story to make herself look more sympathetic which I don’t buy at all especially since Emmett Till died decades ago. Shoot, the recently discovered warrant is older than both my parents for crying out loud! She admitted that she saw the murder of Till the whole time, yet claims to be a victim. No, you’re a perpetrator and this situation could’ve been avoided if you didn’t lie about him sexually harassing or assaulting you! I actually didn’t know that the state of Mississippi was trying to boss around the Till family about how the funeral and casket should be. WOW! Such arrogance! The fact that Bryant got to live her life despite getting away with murder and lies which led to the lynching of a 14-year-old boy! I want to bring up the fact that Bill Ziegler brought up that if he was still alive, he’d be 80 right now. Emmett could’ve been a grandfather living his best life right now, but he obviously couldn’t live long because of this wicked female! Lisa pointed out how the DOJ and various authorities didn’t do anything. The thing is Bryant wasn’t the only woman who got a Black person killed due to a false allegation and I’m sure there are other lethal Karens in her age range who are still alive today.
I know I’m still on hiatus, but this story has me enraged so much that I have to talk about it. I’m sure my audience knows about Emmett Till, right? The Black boy from Chicago who was alleged to have whistled to a white woman in Mississippi and was killed and his death kickstarted the Civil Rights Movement? Afterward, Carolyn Bryant (nee Dunham) ADMITTED SHE WAS LYING and is still alive to this day. Well, guess what? They found a warrant from 1955 for Carolyn’s arrest in a Mississippi court basement. What gross incompetence! They were protecting her this whole time even if some of the people who were alive back then are dead due to their age now. It’s not like she did anything where it could still potentially be of use.
Oh, wait. I’m no legal expert, but I know murder has NO statute of limitations! I’m sorry, but if we can arrest a 101-year-old Nazi this year, then we can surely make Carolyn spend the rest of her life behind bars. What’s your excuse? A Black boy died because of a white supremacist woman’s lie, so she needs to get hard time. I know if a Black person murdered someone back then and was still alive, they’d lock them up no questions asked. Thankfully the case is reopened and the warrant is still valid, but I hope they lock her up. There are people who have been executed for less assuming if they actually committed a crime! If you’re one of those “believe all women” #MeToo feminists who rant about R. Kelly and Bill Cosby, but remain silent for this woman who lied about a child taking sexual advantage of her and was an accomplice to his death, then you’re part of the problem. I understand people have been bombarded with so many stories about mass murders, inflation, the Russia-Ukraine War, and other things, but this story needs more attention even if it’s tough to punish these white supremacist POSs. The fact that Carolyn Bryant is still alive and so many others haven’t lived as long as she did is disgusting.
