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/
Just when I think some people in America couldn’t get any more idiotic with their bigotry, I stand corrected. So this right-wing group called the Moms of Liberty wants to ban Martin Luther King Jr. from the history books because it allegedly “traumatizes” white children. This is so stupid as well as heinous. These Karens as well as their token Asian and Indian crash test dummies want to stop talking about Civil Rights let alone the other parts of American history that expose how racist America was and still is.
Wow, for a group trying to be about America, they sure are using Nazi tactics of book-burning, don’t you think? People just can’t handle the uncomfortable truths about the rampant racism in this country. The concept of CRT has been such a hot debate over the past year. The arguments against it (the fact it’s a collegiate-level curriculum as opposed to the K-12 levels is irrelevant) boil down to “It makes white people feel bad!”. Stop acting like this country is perfect because it’s not. It’s not going to sow the seeds of racial strife. It tells the hard truths and makes sure that history doesn’t repeat itself in America. Shoot, there were so many atrocities I learned on my own that I DIDN’T learn about in school from kindergarten all the way to my undergraduate years in college. Here are some examples of what I didn’t learn during my time as a student and that’s not even counting the events that happened in other countries:
Black Wall Street
The Devil’s Punchbowl concentration camp in Natchez, MS
East St. Louis race riots
The Convict Lease program
Little Rock race riots
The GI Bill did not give any aid to Black soldiers after WWII unlike their white counterparts
Various acts of colonizers cannibalizing African slaves (check out the book The Delectable Negro for more on that subject)
That’s just the tip of the iceberg and I’m still learning about more of these stories. Even the positive stories involving various inventors could be added to that list. People should learn about these things. If a student has any shred of humanity (I at least have SOME hope in that regard although not a lot), then they will be compelled to make a change and to call out these racists in different fields. These Moms of Liberty are straight-up white supremacists and have no right to ban the books or say how other countries do all these terrible things.
