Never, ever forget this young man… Never forget what these grown white so called men did to him with no regret. He was just a kid; like so many today; and they were so afraid of him they tortured and horrendously slaughtered him.
And never forget his mothers strength; the strength it took to keep that casket open for the world to see what these soulless, proud killers did to him.
Read his story, written by his strong, beautiful mother. Click here for the book. I was so outraged and shocked when recently I was speaking of him to someone and they did not know who he was……. This is NOT someone we forget; this is not someone HISTORY forgets. Make sure we see to that. May his beautiful soul now be blessed…
Watching the below video is hard, but it is vital and necessary if you care about what is going on in this world. Tears came to my eyes, as this reminds me so much of Emmett Till. Racism is becoming overly blunt, it is in our face, as if they are mocking us. It is beyond time to do something about the police, and racism in America. This should never have happened to any person; but because it has, it shouldn’t still be occurring- it’s time to defend ourselves and children; I don’t support violence, but I do support SELF DEFENSE; screw turn the other cheek!
When this occurred it received so little attention in the media, even in local media, an online petition had to be made trying to get attention drawn to it. Many believe it was the son of an FBI agent thus giving it an even extra layer of silence. What if this was your child? Brother, nephew, … please share this with any and everyone you know;
What happened to 14-year-old Jason Smith?His death was ruled an “accidental drowning” by the coroner in Eros, Louisiana, but his body was found with his organs missing… Either that, or as Smith’s family believes, somebody removed them. Smith’s family is convinced that he was murdered in a racially-motivated hate crime. Moreover, they are pointing the finger at the son of an FBI agent, suggesting that the crime is being covered-up because of his involvement.
Smith had been dead for hours before his body was recovered from a lake back on June 6, 2011. It is unreasonable to imagine, however, that the time his body was in the lake would have resulted in the decomposition or selective removal of organs by predators, while the rest of his body was not destroyed.
Could the organs have been removed for some other reason? Could have have been removed to rid the investigation of any evidence contrary to the coroner’s claim that Smith had died as the result of an accidental drowning? That is: no lungs, no proof that he didn’t drown.
Jason’s father also claims that his son was sexually assaulted before being murdered. He alleges that Jason’s murderers was the son of an FBI agent and that is why this case is being covered up.Mr. Smith claims that police tried to kill him and another son when they were leaving the Louisiana town where the murder happened.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Sixty years after a black Chicago teenager was killed for whistling at a white woman in Mississippi, relatives and civil rights activists are holding church services and movie screenings to remember Emmett Till.
They’re also trying to continue the legacy of his late mother, Mamie Till Mobley, who worked with young people and encouraged them to challenge injustice in their everyday lives. It’s a message that Deborah Watts, a distant cousin of Till’s, sees as relevant amid the killings in recent years of young black men such as Trayvon Martin in Florida and Tamir Rice in Ohio.
Watts, of Minneapolis, was a toddler when Till was killed. She said that as she grew up, she spoke often with Mobley about Till.
“It was her motivation to turn his death into something positive,” Watts said Thursday in Jackson.
The 14-year-old Till was visiting relatives in the cotton…
