Mass Shootings: America needs an Emmett Till moment
Thom plus logo Americans are disconnected from the real carnage these weapons of war produce.

Back in 1955, young Black people like 14-year-old Emmett Till were routinely murdered by white people all over America, usually with no consequence whatsoever.

Emmett Till was kidnapped by two white Mississippi men, brutally tortured, murdered and his mangled body was thrown into the Tallahatchie River. (And the white men who did it, and the white woman who set it off with a lie, never suffered any consequence.)

His mother, Mamie Bradley, made the extraordinarily brave decision to show her baby's mutilated face with an open-coffin funeral in their hometown of Chicago.
