Comments

Kari Solomon : No parent should have to endure losing a child, but Emmett Till's mother endured his death, hatred, lack of sympathy, and no justice.

Deidra Frazier : Ugh...their smugness and celebration in court of taking a boy's life. Sickening.

ant wto : the mom was one of the bravest women alive, to endure all of this, cope with losing a child in a horrific way and stand by the coffin and look at what they did to him. thats one tough lady. scary world we live in

Maria Peguero : Is it just me or did the fact that they kissed make anyone else extremely angry 🤬

415KiDD : He definitely had his mother's beautiful light brown eyes

Ok : I wish i could go back in time and save that boy

Hajar ilya : I can't believe it took her 61 years to confess

hannahsings19 : Emmitt was such a beautiful young boy...sick monsters! No one deserves this!!!

velli'e e : And now this Old white lady who is 80 year old... says that she had lied.... I hope her death is painful and agonizing...Also those devils who beat him.

Roxanna Garza : 5:15 look at them both smiling like there great people. Disgusting! And these women supporting them like these men are hero’s of some sort. I’m sure there in a special place right now burning away.

TheC0mmunt y : Rip Mr till one like = 1 respect

Cai Gant : She will get her day in hell.

Sunshine Ray : When people say BLM....I believe they aren't disregarding anyone else's life....I think the meaning is simply this....."My life matters too".

KEENster D : It doesn't matter how many times I see that picture of Emmett's horribly disfigured in that coffin. Each time I am left with the same feelings of extreme anger, sadness and disbelief. How can you do this to anyone let alone a child? There are some truly evil people in this world. Thinking of how Emmett suffered brings me to tears. Hell is too good for the bastards that did this to him.

awesomegirl5 : Rip Emmett Till

S OB : 6:50 "without the imagery there would be no one who would be prepared to believe some of the violence we have witnessed" so true.

Sa Sa : acquitted by an all-white, all-male jury. just wow

David Richardson : The fact that it had to take 61 years for her to admit she lied...😒😒😒😒 RIP Emmett Till.

Aria Wallace : Emmett & his mother were beautiful looking

therealmvp 123 : you know what makes this so sad he was innocent

Hajar ilya : I can't believe that someone can have that much hatred for a person

Kays Dash : Oh my, he was a beautiful human being how handsome he was.. Look how those lower than animal good for nothing bunch of people turned him into 😢😢 this was so heartbreaking.. RIP Emmet Till

Steven Browne : How could this woman live with herself knowing she was lying and the cause of a horrific murder?

MoonlightSky : America is an evil country

Aaliyah Rochford : The people who disliked this video have no soul..

Erich Durst : The saddest thing about it is the fact that this kind of thing still happens in other parts of the world. I am a white person and I just don't understand how anybody could do this, if I lived in that time I would've just simply told him to not talk to my wife, but most whites back then were just horrible, I love this woman Mamie Till she is an amazing person and I love what she did for the American country- a white person

jasmine flower : Carloyn Bryant MUST PAY!! SHE IS STILL ALIVE , 84 YEARS OLD IN RALEIGH NC!!!!

Vincent Schmidt : And now the accuser said she made it up.. smh RIP Emmett Till

Khabib Smesh : Rest in peace little brother. I am so sorry that you had to endure so much pain 😭

Maribel Camarillo : Poor Emmett he was innocent

fiberrabit : Im gonna find carolyn and beat her the way emmett was

TheHonestDutch/Irish/Italian guy : This still goes on today. False accusations are real and have deadly consequences. Innocent until proven guilty.

John Nguyen : And she admitted she lied about it and they are keeping her identity a secret for her safety and the book written about this won't be released until 2036 or somewhere near that time until she dies so she wouldn't feel bad.. I hope she dies a slow painful death. Emmett's mom passed away in 2003 and she won't be able to hear this. No peace, and no justice. So sad to see what African Americans would go through in the past. That bitch needs to die already.

Beautiful leaves : God she's a beautiful woman. The picture shows a heart broken mother and a haunted father.

Isabel Urias : It's always white people who do this and hurt people of color. They think they are the best and can get away with anything but how can you live with yourself after doing such a thing like what they did the Emmett till

Irene Adler : I can't believe they're smiling and padding each other on the back... Such a strong woman to have lived through this while still acting so tirelessly

greenbeagle13 : This was horrific and can’t imagine what he went through...

Razor Khalid : the sadest part is he was only 14

Carlos Jenkins : Hurts till this day.. So much hate towards us but consider them selves Christian's.. Till this day nothing much has changed.. Even the people that's trained and paid to protect us are doing just as much killings as the hate group's it's sad 😭

jokebooks : The level of hatred those men had within them had to be very high. I couldn’t do all that to my worst enemy.

Brooke WithTheHair : Sounds about white

Tammy Pavao : May God bless his soul!🤦🏽‍♀️💔😇🙏🏾🙌🏾😓😖😭

NaTeasha Allen : 80 or not, why she not in prison for lying on a police report? there is no statue limitation on murder.

Scrubs Only : this story will always wrench my heart. that poor boy.

Hajar ilya : this made me cry

Angie Smith : R.I.P EMMETT TILL 🕊🕊🕊💕💕💕

lebosouljah : he didnt deserve to die. regardless of skin color, race whatever it is .

Gisselle Marie : He never deserved to die he could be living his life right now this makes me so sad 😞😭😢 #justiceforemmett 💔

Dominique Does Life : This IS racism. This is an outward manifestation of the hate that lives in our hearts. Emmet Till’s Mother was an amazing woman and I’m sure that, given the opportunity, young Emmet would’ve grown into a lovely man. I’m so thankful that his Mother took the opportunity to use this horrific tragedy to illustrate this incredibly important point.
