Post-Race America, Huh? Emmett Till’s Mississippi Memorial Riddled With Bullet Holes

- By Bossip Staff


The Memorial Sign Dedicated To The Death Of Emmett Till Shot Up In Mississippi

“They” don’t want us to live peacefully in America. “They” want us dead. “They” show us time and time again exactly what they think of us.

An NYU graduate film student doing a documentary on Emmett Till came across a chilling message that “they” wanted us to see according to The WashingtonPost.

Kevin Wilson Jr. posted the above photo of Emmett Till’s bullet-riddled memorial on Facebook and it has now been shared over 13,000 times.

His caption read: “Clear evidence that we’ve still got a long way to go”

Racism is ALWAYS alive and present in America, but it’s especially vibrant these days with the rise of #BlackLivesMatter opps and the presidential candidacy of The Orange One.

Haters will say it’s photoshopped. SMMFH.
