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!
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.
Here’s a link about some of these updates so far: https://www.blackenterprise.com/mississippi-officials-do-not-plan-to-prosecute-emmett-till-accuser-carolyn-bryant-donham/
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.
A World War and racial segregation
Wasn’t going to stop me from saving lives
Soldiers were dying
I knew how to innovate in times like these
And even my enemies at home had to bank on it
Every type was given to me to save lives
I chilled the sources and stored them for emergencies
Next, came the samples as cargo on the go
To hospitals and beyond
15,000 in the UK alone
Better thank my inventions for saving their lives
Too bad my employer threw racist pseudoscience
As to who got transfusions or not
I would be cut off from this world
But my method of saving lives continues
Isn’t it a shame when people who literally save lives never get credit for their heroism? It’s no wonder why I have superhero fatigue since more people know who Iron Man, Superman, and Captain America are than this doctor. Like most of the people Dear Innovare focuses on, I didn’t know who Dr. Charles R. Drew was until long after I graduated from school (high school AND at the university level). Charles R. Drew invented the blood bank which continues to save lives through the process of blood transfusions. He came up with this concept during WWII and saved a ton of soldiers lives. Not only that, but he created the bloodmobile, so blood can be refrigerated and stored on the go to various hospitals or clinics. Unfortunately, there were racist idiots who denied the blood from black people even if it could save lives and Dr. Drew was disillusioned by this bigotry (he’s an African-American man, by the way). He died in a car crash at the age of 45 which is very tragic and not many people know his name. Don’t worry, Dr. Drew. I’ll make sure more people know who you are.
