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 She admitted in that unpublished memoir that the police at the time would escort her and her family at the time away from her hometown given the elevated tensions back then.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 know I usually don’t post links to mainstream news sources, but this was breaking news at the time when I discovered it (okay, besides the Mar-A-Lago raids, but we’re not talking about that). Despite the 1955 warrant, finding Carolyn Bryant’s location in Kentucky, and public knowledge of her lying about Emmett Till, the grand jury in Mississippi WILL NOT INDICT HER!!!
Are you freaking serious?! The sad part is that I really shouldn’t be surprised, but it’s no less infuriating. This lying murder accomplice was found dead to rights snuffing the life of Emmett Till and people won’t do anything to put her behind bars? Wow, America really does protect white supremacist thugs and proves me right even more with how it’s a massive color-coded injustice system in this country. No, prison time is only for elderly Nazi members (they do deserve to be jailed, so don’t misconstrue me) and not for American terrorists like Carolyn Bryant, her late husband, and other associates according to those devils! Of course, it’s sad that most people won’t care because they’re too busy cloistering themselves with reality shows, social media, video games, or whatever crappy celebrity gossip is happening right now. Those people are just shallow. Of course, if you think Carolyn shouldn’t be criminally punished despite the evidence and her own lies, then that’s YOUR problem and not mine. I don’t care that she’s old, has medical conditions, and is a grandma. She is a devil and deserves to face justice after a decades-long delay.
God, this makes my blood boil seeing her getting away with it again! I hope Carolyn sees Emmett Till’s visage giving her a cold stare as she’s screaming while Satan drags her to Hell!
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.
Finally, there’s some semblance of positive news and updates in this heinous event. Kenneth Walker is Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend in case you didn’t know. He got himself a lawyer and is filing charges against both the city of Louisville as well as LMPD. That is a step in the right direction especially with all the injustice him and his late girlfriend suffered in that botched raid. Kenneth was falsely accused of attempted murder even though his own apartment was broken into and had to defend himself and her. He was a legal gun owner and the castle doctrine should apply here. Kenneth was traumatized after Breonna was murdered (WHO CAN BLAME HIM?!) and it was sickening getting those charges and being silenced. After all this time about the cops not being charged, there’s finally some legal action going on. I really hope justice is on the side of him and the Taylor family especially with the horrific things that happened to them. Even the other tenants in the same apartment complex said the police never announced who they were when they broke into Kenneth and Breonna’s apartment room. This was an atrocity and no one should ever have to go through this.
May justice favor Kenneth Walker. Never forget Breonna Taylor.
Just because the protests haven’t been getting as much mainstream coverage doesn’t mean they’re disappearing. I’m still going to talk about the Breonna Taylor situation and others or at least continuing the discussion on race relations on here and even my other blogs.
I do apologize if this is older news for anyone knee deep in what’s going on in Louisville, KY, but I didn’t know this until recently. It’s infuriating enough that the cops still aren’t even charged for the murder of Breonna Taylor, but apparently Brett Hankison has been accused of sexually assaulting various women. This is just disgusting on so many levels. As one can tell by the title, where’s #MeToo when it comes to this situation? I know he’s not a celebrity, but people have been taken down and canceled even though they were innocent (see: Nate Parker). This really shows how you have certain women out there who are just activists of convenience instead of getting real justice. Those same people don’t even care that a woman was murdered in her own house, so I hate this double standard when it comes to who is treated better or who gets demonized. This should give even more reason to charge him now, but the legal system is still twiddling their thumbs on the matter and giving the Louisville protestors even more reason to be on the streets.
I can only hope that they finally charge and convict everyone who killed Breonna Taylor as well as getting Brett Hankison for his sexual assault crimes.
I’m not going to let Breonna Taylor get swept under the rug. As much as people talk about George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery (which they should continue to do so), people can’t be ignoring what happened to this murdered paramedic. It’s already confirmed that it was a no-knock warrant which they JUST made illegal and they already had the suspect in custody.
Sure, Hankison was fired, but why just him and why aren’t there charges pressed against all three of them?
This is just sickening and it’s clearly murder. They also had some nerve to charge her boyfriend to begin with even though they had no right being in their home and he was defending himself and Breonna from a home invasion. She didn’t deserve this and she was doing her best to save lives especially during this pandemic.
I really hope that justice can win even though it’s going to be really hard for this to happen.
An unmarked grave is where my mortal frame rests, yet my inventions let people sleep in style
Wooden frames and canopies were built for luxury and durability where commoners can sleep like kings and queens even to this day
While Ohio and Kentucky weren’t always kind to me, I knew I had to have a twin set of endurance
My ethic, diligence, and carpentry had to see me through and spring into action
Brothers, sister, your freedom was paid for from my classy beds patent or not
They saw my name on every frame
I wish my company would’ve withstood the flames of envious arsonists
I would free those who were like me
My life has been used for the greater good
Let me rest
Here’s another case of a former slave doing for self. This is Henry Boyd. The Kentucky-born and later Ohio-based man would become a carpenter/furniture maker in his own right. He crafted some of the fanciest beds around that nowadays are worth a pretty penny in antique form. However, he deserved better. His businesses went ablaze by jealous racists. I would bet you those same people would be the ones to tell black people to pick themselves up by their bootstraps (how ironic and fallacious).
Here’s a fact about the acousmatics of this piece. I used a pair of drumsticks to hit different parts of my own bed and mattress to create the percussive soundscapes before multitracking them.
From Paris, Kentucky, I emerged into this world
At a young age, I was on the clock a ton as a handyman and working all the time fixing
I had no time for school, so tutors and autodidactic endeavors happened
What I didn’t know back then is that I would save lives
It all started from a tunnel that was ablaze
The men in red couldn’t beat the smoke
I watched them struggle and die from the carbon monoxide
It was time to fix this with a hood and breathing apparatus
I tested the smoke myself, and I still breathed
First responders and WWI soldiers both benefited from my creation
Shame no one believed someone with melanin invented it
Next came witnessing car crash after car crash
Scrap metal and mangled bodies were all I could see
All the signs said were “stop” and “go” manually
Give me the yellow light, I know what to do
The green and red were illuminated, but that had to be an in-between
How come no one else thought of this cautionary sign?
I made traffic signals with three lights and electric
Making warnings and curbing accidents
Shame no one believed someone like me invented it
Much like other innovators, I was taken for granted long after I was laid to rest in Cleveland.
