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.

lets all agree to stop referring to normal things that can exist on a human face or body as “imperfections” 

i’m scared as hell for school + the anxiety and stress that i know is waiting for me. but thank god that i know more about dealing with my social anxiety now compared to when i was 13. i’ve slowly learned and understood more about coping with it and specific techniques. i really wish i could give all the kids with social anxiety a big hug :( (u all are great and soso strong) if you have internet access or a smart phone, there are so many free, reliable resources and there are ways to get free therapy too. it’s really hard and it sucks but with time and support things get better. 

indian people are so disgusting racist towards east-asians. 

people in my own community and family. it’s disgusting. i always try to be a decent human being by calling them out, telling them their jokes aren’t funny and their stereotypes are untrue and harmful but there are some seriously messed up people in our own community and i think it’s a big shame. as a community we need to do better. 

i honestyl hate being surrounded by men & boys maybe i should go to an all girls college.
