Today Also Marks the Anniversary of Emmett Till’s Murder
On August 28, 1955—eight years before the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom—Emmett Till was murdered in Money, Mississippi for allegedly flirting with a white store clerk, Carolyn Bryant.
Bryant’s husband, Roy, and his half brother J. W.  Milam kidnapped the 14-year-old Chicagoan from his great uncle’s home and beat him, shot him in the head, tied his body to a large metal cotton gin fan with barbed wire and dropped him into the Tallahatchie River. Three days later the teenager’s bloated, mutilated body was pulled from the river.  
Till’s mother, Mamie, insisted on an open-casket funeral for her only son so that the world might see the brutality he suffered. Two Black publications, Jet and The Chicago Defender, ran pictures of Till’s casket. 
Despite overwhelming evidence of their guilt, the two white men who killed Emmett Till were acquitted by an all-white jury. They went on to sell the story of murdering the teenager to Look magazine for $4,000.
The horrific death of Emmett Till is largely credited with intensifying the push for Black voter registration in Mississippi and serving as a catalyst for the civil rights movement in general.

want this moment burned on my eyelids

So many girls saw this. Bless.

All hail the queen.

Let this sink in. She declared herself a feminist in front of a bunch of white women who decided they werent feminists like katy perry and then her husband and child, the things feminists evidently don’t have, were cheering on and gave her an award

i can’t help but find it incredibly ironic and telling that the people everyone seems to be getting the most life out of beyoncé presumably giving the finger to with her strong declaration of feminism last night are other women. how about letting it sink in that she declared herself a feminist in front of a bunch of sexist and misogynistic men who make up our patriarchal music industry?

^ this.
dont pit women against each other when it comes to promoting feminism.

You know, I did not think about this. The biggest star right now just declared herself a Feminist. The woman making millions every night on tour is a feminist. What was just said, to the big wigs, is that Feminism makes money. HOLY SHIT that is huge.

Reporters confirm that police & advisors concealed the identity of Darren Wilson until he could delete all social media & move out of state.

Wow though. Darren Wilson, Ferguson’s PD and the rest of his and their supporters are an extra special breed of scumbag. What incriminating shit did he have online that needed to be swept under the rug so quickly?

I guarantee you there was some racist shit on his facebook

Oh, 100%.

I absolutely do not believe standard police/Internal Affairs procedure allows an officer involved in an active investigation to leave the jurisdiction.

What makes you think they’re following standard police/internal Affairs procedure?
