      And you don’t believe they are breathing a sigh of relief now that they’re dead?
      CNN took them on a shopping spree to look nice for this interview. Both parties are soaking it for all they can get. The Floyd’s got well over two hundred million dollars already!
      It’s Sacrilegious to eat Steak over a dead body, especially if the dead is family!

      ​@BradLee Jones I’d give you a quarter, but it’s hard to find a payphone these days, and no one really cares.

      @CharlyDeamen, no one would care about their sympathy being misused? Lmao, founder of BLM sends her thanks for you getting to duped into donating. 😂😂😂

    The way Emmett Till’s death was horrific, I had always thought it was something that happened in the 1800s. Imagine my horror when I learnt it happened in the 50s 😭😭😭

      @Dale James You seem a bit confused. If you have a claim it’s up to you to prove it, not the contrary. Btw, in the states with the closest results it’s the Republicans having the power, not the democrats. So talk to your buddies. Oh, Trump tried already…

    • @S D See the reason why your SO naive, gullible & easily manipulated is because you & 99% of Leftist ONLY source your information from agenda driven Leftist media outlets. Your listening to activists pretending to br journalist because you only want to hear FALSE NARRATIVES. Your to afraid of hearing anything that might actually be factual or in the case of conservatives that has moral standards. Conservatives aren’t afraid to hear alternate opinions, that way they can make decisions for themselves based on all the information. Right now I’m listening to a self described Liberal who I agree & disagree with on numerous topics. That way I’m not being indoctrinated by those with agendas. It’s like a diet if all you eat is garbage & fast food your not getting a well rounded diet, same goes for sourcing your information. I bet you never thought for one minute that my wife is of color & large part of my family is Hispanic did you? That’s because you only see color & everything you interact with keeps guiding you along that narrow minded path. Here’s the Liberal I was watching telling the truth about a ridiculous obvious lie CNN refuses to retract. Tomorrow it might be FOX or Republican Mitch McConnell whom we both despise – https://youtu.be/i8fGbPa2hFk

    • @ROB112 H8U Lol sorry the only naive ones are republicans. Losing and lying about why you lost is pretty pathetic

    • @ROB112 H8U Tell your cult you tried to recruit today but failed 😂.

    • @TheRenegadeStar ✓ She at least finally admitted she had that Young man murdered horrifically

    It’s so different in this life to see how tragedy could bring two families together to unite to become stronger I hope one day they all find peace but peace never comes easy😞

    A family member with a PHD in Education use to say this to me all the time. Once you learn the rules, and begin competing in the game, they would rather manipulate cheat & change the rules than let you win!

      @Dale James I think the problem with arguing with conservatives it’s that everything gets lost is translation
      If you are against police corruption it means you hate all cops
      If you are against racism it means you hate all white people
      It’s the black & white mentality

      @I don’t like ish I don’t go outside again you are making too much sense
      I feel the same way when I have discussions with a conservative
      Everything is black and white with them

      @Vincent Strong arm they want to make you feel like you are a terrible person

      You have to admit that it was pretty smart of Maxine Waters to at least go to someone else’s district to recommend burning it all down.

      @We are our Own worse enemy Republicans are used to sacrifice lives when it’s for their interest. All useless wars in the last century have been started by republican Presidents.

  7. I am so glad they opened the coffin. And do wish they’d hidden the moma far far away . Horror

    This is really something moving; thanks for doing this interview.

      it moved me to take a crap and name it GF and flush it down the crapper to go down down to be with GF and those who die of drug overdoses during perfectly lawful policing scenarios

  9. I pray for these families 🙏😥😓🌹

  10. Nothing compares to what happened to Emmett Till. Still makes me tear up to this day

    • It’s not even close…don’t sully the name of till over the worthless gf

      As long as people say things like that we give the impression that things actually aren’t getting worse which is backwards, when you think about it!

      And it was that saintly Republican President Dwight D Eisenhower who insisted the case on it be shut! The media of the ladder 20th century really went out of their way to try to solidify the first-half – or at least the 1950s in some sense of normality and iconic Paradise and by now it should be pretty obvious as to why!

    Emmett Till’s murder is absolutely horrendous. YT has several videos and documentation of his brutal death. Nothing has affected me more than the way he was killed and viewing his body. I think the lady Emmett was accused of whistling is still alive. RIP Emmett Till.

      Alot of the lynchings are downright demonic. Many of them were slowly burned to death over several hours. Castrated. Beheaded with someone holding their head up to cheering crowds. Watched by nearly the whole town rooting for the murder, where even the black residents weren’t supportive of the victim if they think he did commit the crime.

    • She’s dead. Or is it the girlfriend of one of the murderers dead?🤔. She came out and attested to it being a lie before she died.. she knew she had to meet her fate. In hell. She refused to go to the grave with lies

  14. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  15. The year was 1955. Emmett Till was a young African American boy from Chicago visiting relatives in Mississippi. One day Emmett was seen “flirting” with a white woman in town, and for that he was mutilated and murdered at the age of fourteen. He was found with part of a cotton gin tied around his neck with a string of barbed wire. His killers, two white men, had shot him in the head before they dumped him in the river.

    To the shock of many, his mother insisted on an open casket at his funeral so that the public could see what happens to a little boy’s body when bigots decide he is less than human. “I just wanted the world to see,” she said. “I just wanted the world to see.” The world did see, and nothing was ever the same again for the white supremacists of the United States of America.

    First thing I got to stop crying I’m always crying but these two human beings coming together was the most powerful interview I have ever ever seen and I think they’re going to have an affair that’s how I feel I feel it’s more love there than anything else I’ve ever seen it was so powerful a lot has come out of the situation but this is one of the most beautiful things that I have seen God bless these two people they deserve any and every happiness they will ever have God bless her great interview

    • Exactly how I felt. My father told me Emmetts story when I was in elementary school. He was determined to make sure I knew the truth and the ugliness of racism. Emmett was a beautiful young boy, but what they did to him was the horror of racism. Not only was Emmett found in that place but they also found quite a few more bodies in the same spot. PSYCHOPATHS love racism.
