In the 1950's a fourteen year old teenager (Emmett Till) was viciously murdered.in Mississippi. That event, more than any other atrocity, sparked the Modern Civil Rights Movement. Here we are again on the verge of the social unrest that defined that era. In many ways America has changed for the better. Millions of Americans who couldn't vote can now vote and discrimination in public places and the workplace is against the law. Slowly the rights of these Americans have eroded, highlighted by the Gestapo attitude and tactics against people of color that has resurfaced. America has not remembered that past and now technology has exposed what is really going on. Police can no longer be certain that their mistreatment of citizens will be kept secret.
With many people in other countries wanting to destroy America, the last thing we Americans need is this type of unrest internally. Let's all hope America will wake up and be united against our enemies by protecting our citizens instead of beating and killing them. The Ghost of Emmet Till has come back.
