UNEQUAL LIARS: Jussie (Black) v. Emmett Till’s Accuser (White)
If Jussie Smolett (a gay Black man) is proven in court to have lied about his rebuttable homophobic and racist attack which was purportedly committed by MAGA hat-wearing White men who uttered racist and homophobic slurs at him, then he will have joined the INFAMOUS AMERICAN LIAR who had FABRICATED that Emmett Till (A Black young man) had attacked her.
HOWEVER, as expected, the results are already UNEQUAL even from the start…
THE “WHITE” LIAR WHO FALSELY ACCUSED YOUNG BLACK MAN, EMMETT TILL, LEADING TO HIS MURDER - CAROLYN BRYANT DUNHAM
In 1955, a handsome 14-year-old Black young man named Emmett Till was murdered in a way that not only horrified the world, but also galvanized the Civil Rights Movement. And about six decades later, the woman who accused OUR DEAR EMMETT TILL of flirting with her, an act that led to murder of the young Brotha, admitted that she was, indeed, lying.
I LOVE CHICAGO because seemingly some of THE BEST THINGS that have happened in America to BLACKS had been regarding Blacks from CHICAGO, and so have some of the WORST THINGS. It is the first CITY in AMERICA that has allowed me to feel FULLY BLACK. And all Chicagoans have at some point talked about good 'ole Emmett Till who was from Chicago and there are even roads that are named after him (quite deservably). His story induced the Civil Rights riots of his era. Remarkable stuff!
Anyhow, on the afternoon of August 24, 1955, Emmett Till was visiting his great-uncle, Moses Wright, in Money, Mississippi, when he and some of his friends went to Bryant’s Grocery and Meat Market to buy some gum. Inside was 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, a white woman who owned the store with Roy Bryan, her husband. According to Carolyn, Emmett flirted with her or touched her hand, or did both. She yelled at Emmett and his friends grabbed him out of the store, fearing the woman’s wrath.
Despite the fact that Carolyn didn’t tell her husband about the incident, as soon as the husband found it out, he confronted her, and she confirmed the story. On August 28, Roy Bryant and his half-brother, J.W. Milam, kidnapped Emmett from his great uncle’s home and took him to the Tallahatchie River, brutally beat him and shot him in the head… Such an evil act would have been wrong UNDER ANY RECIPROCITY RULE. They, subsequently, tied him with barbed wire to a large metal fan and shoved his mutilated body into the river.
In September 1955, both Bryant and Milam were arrested and placed on trial. However, Despite overwhelming evidence of guilt, the ALL-WHITE-MALE jury needed only ONE-SINGLE-HOUR to find the two WHITE MEN << NOT GUILTY >>.
YET, a few months later, both KILLERS OF EMMETT TILL(namely, Bryant and Milam) admitted to kidnapping and killing Till in an interview for Look magazine, for which they were paid $4000. HOWEVER, they were protected by double jeopardy laws, and thus could not be brought to justice.
The most STARTLING THING occurred in January of 2017, when Vanity Fair revealed revealed in an article that Carolyn Bryant, now known as CAROLYN BRYANT DONHAM had made up the story. According to the article, the confession was revealed in a new book, written by Duke University senior research scholar Timothy B. Tyson, entitled THE BLOOD OF EMMETT TILL.
Moral of CAROLYN BRYANT DUNHAM'S STORY
1. She was assumed to be truthful
2. Her lies induced the death of Emmett Till
3. Her Husband (an Evil and Racist Killer) was set Free by an ALL White Male Jury
4. HE was so privileged that even with evidence that he did do it, OTHER WHITE MALES protected him and vicariously themselves against an already dead "Nigg*r" (proving that BLACKS LIVES didn't matter AT ALL 63 years ago and only matters a bit more now in the eyes of still far too many UNEDUCATED AND IGNORANT WHITES)
JUSSIE SMOLLETT AS A POTENTIAL BLACK LIAR WHO, ALLEGEDLY, FALSELY ACCUSED WHITE MEN OF ATTACKING HIM AND/OR EXPRESSING RACIAL & HOMOPHOBIC SLURS AT HIM (Since it has yet to be proven in a Court of Law)
Now before I proceed, look at the similarity between the TWO NAMES…
EMMETT TILL and JUSSIE SMOLLETT
(think about the hidden message if you're discerning enough to do so).
Both names contain the repeats of letters in both the first and last names… now that’s very rare… the latter indicates the HISTORICAL NATURE of both events for those that have a spirit of discernment…
Jussie is a very handsome Black gay man. He seems to be BIRACIAL to me (and may not be), but under the racist White-male created “ONE-DROP-RULE” since Whites in America had originally seen BLACKS as UNPURE or UNEQUAL, even if he had been, any drop of Black blood/gene even in an OCEAN OF WHITE GENES still makes a person BLACK… something that I would love to refute but have been discouraged to so pursue by so many friends and scholars. But I reserve the right to change my mind in the future considering that the ONE-DROP-RULE has been reversed.
Anyhow, Jussie said that MAGA hat wearing TRUMP supporters attacked him while uttering racial and homophobic slurs… Although he has yet to be proven wrong in a court of law…
BOTH GULLIBLE BLACKS and WHITES OF ALL POSITIONS HAVE ALREADY PRESUMED THAT THE BROTHA IS GUILTY…
I want to DEFEND JUSSIE on the following PREMISES:
1. Like ALL WHITE ACCUSED he, too, is innocent until proven guilty. And unlike the Whites that were ACTUALLY GUILTY in EMMETT TILL’s CASE and were found INNOCENT, this man is being treated like he is GUILTY before he has a chance to prove his INNOCENCE
2. Unlike far too many Whites and some Blacks, BECAUSE OF WHITE AMERCA’S RACIST PAST AND HATRED FOR BLACKS I always ASSUME that a BLACK is being FRAMED (or is NOT GUILTY) FIRST even with believable allegations, and American Jurisprudence then has to PROVE the opposite BEYOND ANY REASONABLE STANDARD
Wait, the latter is the standard for Whites… Oops… all I am asking is that it is also the standard for ALL (especially, historically DEMONIZED BLACK MEN)
3. Somehow enough PROBABLE CAUSE was found to get WARRANT from a neutral and impartial magistrate to arrest Mr. SMOLLETT when CAROLYN BRYANT DUNHAM was never prosecuted for inducing the death of EMMETT TILL.
4. Dr. King said that “an injustice anywhere is a THREAT to JUSTICE EVERYWHERE”… we all should be PRESUMED INNOCENT until we are LEGALLY proven guilty in a court of law... ask yourself.... IS THIS BEING AFFORDED TO JUSSIE?
As a Black man and a father of Black kids, whenever I see a young BLACK MAN/WOMAN treated like A THUG by either COGNITIVELY DISSONANT BLACKS and RACIST WHITES, I feel like I could have been him (whether this BLACK PERSON could have been me or her)
Please read my COGNITIVE DISSONANCE article to understand where I am coming from. America does have a lot of COGNITIVELY DISSONANT YET “SCHOOLED” BLACKS who often think that they are saying or doing things that are in their best interest, but that ends up being in the INTEREST of the very people that they are CALLING RACIST, HOMOPHOBIC, OR MISOGYNISTIC.
Don’t believe me, take a look at the PREMATURE IDIOTIC reactions in the CHICAGO SUN TIMES article titled “REACTIONS TO JUSSIE…”
Guilty or not, It is utter BS and GUILTY is determinable by American Jurisprudence by a standard called "BEYOND ANY REASONABLE DOUBT"... Now, if the EMMETT TILL KILLERS were let go despite the fact that there was NO REASONABLE DOUBT that they killed EMMETT, so should JUSSIE with a slap on the wrist if he have been found to have LIED.
END OF STORY!
IN A RUSH
SELECTED IMPRESSIVE AND OBJECTIVE FEEDBACK:
By Pastor Darryl F.
If Jesse is guilty, he should suffer consequences. I won’t back away from that. However, the hypocrisy is astounding from (mainly) those on the right. They seem to have quickly forgotten about Susan Smith the woman who gave a description of a black man kidnapping her kids only for it to later be revealed that SHE drowned them . Before that was revealed, police were stopping random black men and seriously questioning them. The outrage from the majority population was simply because she murdered her kids. The fact that she blamed a black man was not that big of a deal outside the black community. There have been several other incidents where a REAL crime was committed by the “victim”, and a black man was blamed. But those seem to have been forgotten in the hype of this case. That’s part 1.
Again, what Jesse seems to have done should not be taken lightly because resources were diverted from solving real crimes to his shenanigans. And he could have caused civil unrest. Having said that, it’s MINOR compared to the Emmit Till situation. Smollett gave a PURPOSELY vague description . So it’s doubtful if anyone would have ever been charged and arrested. But Till’s accuser gave his name in order to be CERTAIN that this teenager would receive “mob justice” for something a simple admonishment would have sufficed. IF he whistled at her, a simple “we don’t disrespect grown ladies down here by whistling at them. That Ill mannered for a teen to do” was ALL that was needed. But he was brutally murdered and beaten beyond recognition. And the killers got off simply because they WOULD not convict a white man for killing a black person in 1950’s Mississippi regardless of the evidence. And even if they’d confessed and bragged about it, they wouldn’t have served time. Smollett faked an attack on HIMSELF . And only wanted attention and a raise. Till’s accuser wanted him dead.
