There's so much to say, but I can't be said. As I sit here and watch stories of Emmett Till, my heart hurts. 14. I can only imagine how afraid he was. I feel pain as if it happen 2:00 am this morning. Maybe if we air this more and let young people see how we was treated back then, then maybe just maybe we will stop with these sensly crimes that is taking our youth. Mrs. Mamie may you rest in peace, I am so so sorry. I can't even begin to imagine if I was put in your shoes. You were a brave woman. And Mr. Sharpton, thank you. I love you so much. Thank you for not being a coward and trust me, to me that means alot. Thank you for caring so much not just for Emmett but for all of those that has been murder because of the color of their the skin. For some reason my heart is more so with Emmett. I just can't understand why? Even though his face was disfigured, he was still so young and beautiful. I know that they said that the 2 men that killed him died in 1980 and 1990, I believe that there was more please lets get this case solved and bring these animals to justice including the wife for pergory.

Thank you

I too have much to say, but it can't be said here. People need to know about all the injustices of the past decades, then maybe they will have some understanding of why things are the way they are. Everyone wants closure without it you can't possibly and totally move forward. I was born in 1960 in Jackson, Ms and my heart breaks. How can people be so cruel and commit such horible atrocities against another human being just because of the color of a person's skin. Why would another person think that they are superior to another human being. How could those same people condemn other nations, and not think about the mass murders that went on in this country. Medgar Evers...I watched a segment on Byron Da Labeckwit(sp?) the man that murdered Medgar...pure evil, heart filled with hate. I was so glad that justice was served. This is the real thing that Reverend Sharpton is putting out there and people don't want to hear it or see it. Black history month is coming up and you know all they want to see is the good part of history...the good things that we as a people have accomplished...but what about all the things that our people had to go through to get us to where we are today. This land is stained with the blood of our forefathers and this land is crying out for its long awaited justice. I just can't say anymore. Thank you Reverend Sharpton!
