Who was Emmett Till?

Report as

Sad story that one. Till was a 14 year old african american boy in Mississippi in the 1950s, he reportedly was flirting with a local white women one day and that women's family dragged him to their barn a few days later where they gouged out his eyes and shot him in the head. Its a Horrible story about how serious racism can be.

Yes. Emmett did flirt with a local white woman. He wasn't aware how different things were from where he was from and told his cousins that he had lots of white girlfriends back home. His cousins then dared him to go in there and ask the woman on a date. She never said anything because she didn't want to make a big deal out of it. (Although she was very offended, she knew her husband would be furious.) His cousins were tired of Emmett's bragging and told on him. Her husband and brother found out and took Emmett from his uncle's home and killed him.
