Just how well known in history is Emmet Till?
Till continues to be the focus of literature and memorials. A statue was unveiled in Denver in 1976 (and has since been moved to Pueblo, Colorado) featuring Till with Martin Luther King, Jr. Till was included among the forty names of people who had died in the Civil Rights Movement (listed as martyrs) on the granite sculpture of the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama, dedicated in 1989. In 1991, a 7-mile (11 km) stretch of 71st Street in Chicago, was renamed "Emmett Till Road".
James McCosh Elementary School in Chicago, where Till had been a student, was renamed the "Emmett Louis Till Math And Science Academy" in 2005. The "Emmett Till Memorial Highway" was dedicated between Greenwood and Tutwiler, Mississippi, the same route his body took to the train station on its way to Chicago. It intersects with the H. C. "Clarence" Strider Memorial Highway.
In 2007, Tallahatchie County issued a formal apology to Till's family, reading "We the citizens of Tallahatchie County recognize that the Emmett Till case was a terrible miscarriage of justice. We state candidly and with deep regret the failure to effectively pursue justice. We wish to say to the family of Emmett Till that we are profoundly sorry for what was done in this community to your loved one." The same year, Georgia congressman John Lewis, sponsored a bill that provides a plan for investigating and prosecuting unsolved Civil Rights era murders. The Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act was signed into law in 2008.
The name and story of Emmet Till is also etched in stone at the National Civil Rights Memorial which lists a total of 40 people murdered by the Klan and their supporters in the South from 1954 to 1968 LINK

California man murdered in front of his young daughter
As family and a community mourn, police say they are getting a pretty good description of the killer. The man is wanted for killing Thomas Cunningham in front of his 13-year-old daughter. The Hayward father had just bought the two ice cream at a corner market.
So when this Hayward man was fatally shot Tuesday night, while walking home after getting ice cream with his daughter, even police were stunned.
Hayward police released a sketch of the suspect and hope that anyone with information will call them. The suspect is a young, black male, 18 to his early 20s, 5'6 - 5'10", with a slim build wearing a dark colored hoodie with a white logo on the front.
Thomas Cunningham was out for a short walk with his 13 year daughter and their dogs on the evening of November 24. One of the dogs sniffed at a black man. The black man didn’t like it, began arguing with Cunningham, pulled out a gun and shot Cunningham dead in front of his daughter.

Now for some white victims who dissed their black murderers by just being in their sight
First, some background from the book of a Washington post reporter, who was part of a racist black mob in his younger days that attacked a white bicyclist for just being in their sight.
'kicked him in the head and face and watched the blood gush from his mouth'
Nathan McCall ( A probable affirmative action hire and a "journalist" for the Washington Post in his autobiography “Makes Me Wanna Holler”) —
|Imagine if a white journalist wrote about his younger days in a white racist mob attacking black victims? You think the Washington Post would have hired him? Or any newspaper would have hired him?|
“The fellas and I were hanging out on our corner one afternoon when the strangest thing happened. A white boy … came pedaling a bicycle casually through the neighborhood. … Somebody spotted him and pointed him out to the rest of us. ‘Look! What’s that motha doin’ ridin’ through here?! Is he crraaaazy?!’
… We caught him on Cavalier Boulevard and knocked him off the bike. … Ignoring the passing cars, we stomped him and kicked him. My stick partners kicked him in the head and face and watched the blood gush from his mouth. I kicked him in the stomach and nuts, where I knew it would hurt. Every time I drove my foot into his balls, I felt better … one dude kept stomping, like he’d gone berserk …
When he finished, he reached down and picked up the white dude’s bike, lifted it as high as he could above his head, and slammed it down on him hard. … We walked away, laughing, boasting, competing for bragging rights about who’d done the most damage.”

Her presence obviously "dissed" the 6 black thugs who burnt her alive with gasoline
|Evelyn Wagler, white victim of viscous black hate crime|
In late September, 1973, Evelyn Wagler had just moved from Chicago to Boston's Blue Hill Avenue neighborhood. She was white and living in a mostly African-American neighborhood. She had separated from her husband and child, and was seeking employment in Boston.
At about 9:00 pm on October 2, Evelyn ran out of gas near her house while borrowing a car. She walked eleven blocks to a filling station carrying a small empty gas can.
On her return, six black teenagers confronted her. They forced her down an alley and behind a building. They beat her up and shouted racial slurs. The teenagers demanded she pour the gasoline on herself. She complied on threat of more violence. One teenager then flicked a match at Evelyn, and she burst into flames. The teenagers walked away in laughter.
Evelyn Wagler tried in vain to roll on the ground and put out the fire. She was receiving second and third degree burns all over her body. Charred and smoldering, with her hair burnt down to her scalp and face blackened, she crossed the street and walked over to a liquor store. She calmly asked, "Will you please call an ambulance?" and then left the store. Bystanders grabbed a coat and covered her, and she was taken to the emergency room by a policeman.
Evelyn Wagler died four hours later. ......
TACOMA - A Pierce County judge Thursday sentenced 19-year-old Andrew Brown to 30 years in prison for the brutal beating death of Darrel Johnson as families of the two men scuffled in the courtroom.
Johnson, a retired Port of Tacoma maintenance electrician, was just weeks shy of his 70th birthday when he was attacked January 8 during the daily walk he takes through his east Tacoma neighborhood.
He was near his home at 69th and McKinley walking with the help of a cane he has used since hip replacement surgery. Witnesses said the attacker knocked Johnson to the ground, kicked him in the face, and began stomping on his head before running away.
He died in the hospital one week after the attack.
Andrew Brown was sentenced in the slaying of 69-year-old Darrel Johnson, a Navy submarine veteran and retired port electrician. Brown pleaded guilty in October to first-degree murder in Pierce County Superior Court.
After the judge sentenced Brown, the families began yelling at each other. A melee broke out when one woman complained that the sentence was unfairly long, given the victim's age.
"The man was 69, he wasn't going to live forever," she said.
Johnson, using a cane after hip-replacement surgery, was beaten Jan. 9 during his usual morning walk in his east Tacoma neighborhood. He died a week later from multiple injuries, including those to his neck, which had been stomped on and crushed.
The alleged motive was robbery, though nothing apparently was taken.
Brown was one of three people charged in the case. First-degree-murder charges are pending against Tandra Rae Moses, 17, and Justin James Montgomery, 21.

Lexington County (WLTX) - Lexington County deputies have charged two men who they say randomly picked out a man and killed him.
Detectives have charged 22-year-old Phillip Harold Jackson and 20-year-old D'Marqus Laquen Thomas with murder.

At the time of the killing, Lybrand was walking in the 600 block of Old Wire Road near West Columbia.
Investigators say the men came up beside him in a car, and asked him to come to their vehicle. When they did, officers say the pair shot Lybrand at close range.

"Troy Knapp's killing was 10 years in the making, a gradual death by inches and degrees.His brutal beating at the hands of an angry mob sparked outrage and spurred marches a decade ago. But long after the headlines faded, Knapp soldiered on in a battered and broken body that no longer responded to his commands.Bedridden, in chronic pain and saddled with seizures, Knapp hung on until Nov. 6, when his body finally gave out for good. At age 43, he became North Charleston's 11th homicide of 2009, the victim of a slow-motion killing too old to carry the possibility of a murder charge.Six men were convicted of lynching in the attack on Knapp. Just two remain in prison, though they are expected to be released within the year."

a'Knapp, a former auto mechanic, was 34 when he and friend Gary Thornburg were attacked while riding their bicycles near Bexley Street and South Rhett Avenue. Thornburg escaped serious injury, but Knapp was beaten so badly he was in a coma for weeks.
"When I first saw him in the hospital, I said 'They beat him to death. He just didn't die,' " his aunt, Annie Minnick, said.
When Knapp finally awoke, he was mostly paralyzed, unable to walk or take his young son on the fishing trips they used to share. Doctors had to remove a portion of his brain and a section of skull, leaving him with a large depression in his head. He couldn't remember much about the attack itself.
Police initially charged 16 suspects between the ages of 14 and 22. The case stoked racial tensions, as the suspects are black and the two victims white.But police have said robbery, not race, appeared to be the motive for the assault.
After the case ended with guilty pleas from a half-dozen defendants in the spring of 2001, Knapp carried on as best he could. Unable to feed, clean or care for himself, he continued to live in a small, weathered home on Lambert Street, where his family tended to his many needs.
Knapp's family went into debt to pay for his funeral, his sister said. He never got a dime of the restitution money his attackers had been ordered to pay, and no life insurance company would touch him.
Another white man was nearly beaten to death by the same mob for the crime of being in a public park while white
Both whites obviously "dissed" the black mob by being in their presence.
This clearly was a racist hate crime. Aside from the fact that whites are not protected by the Hate Crime Laws according to Attorney General, Eric "My People" Holder, note how a racial motive is not even mentioned in the "reporting" by the local Corrupt Liberal Media.
White said he observed Deonta Johnson, Elliott Murphy and Fredrick Rhone attack the victim. He also saw Murphy stomping on the victim's head.
White said he saw that the victim was badly injured and not moving at the time of the attack. He later heard Murphy bragging about stomping on the victim's head.
White also admitted that he was present at the robbery and attack of Kevin Wilson, 46, which occurred about 70 minutes later in Garfield Park.
White said he saw Murphy jump on Wilson's head with both feet. He later saw Murphy wiping blood off his shoes with a towel.
DECATUR - Elliott T. Murphy, the leader in the savage stomping attacks by a mob of nine teens that resulted in the death of one man and the near death of another, has been sentenced to 80 years in prison.
Murphy was sentenced Wednesday by Steadman to 55 years in prison for the murder of 61-year-old Jerry Newingham and 25 years for the attempted murder of Kevin S. Wilson, then 46, in attacks on Aug. 24, 2009, on the city's north side.
"This case is one of those cases that truly scares the heck out of people," Wagoner said. "The average citizens can see themselves riding home from work on their bicycle or sitting out at a park. Those two victims were chosen for no other reason than they were there."( And the fact that they were white)
The first incident, the killing of Jerry Newingham, took place about 4 p.m in residential area, just east of the Monroe Quick Stop, a store with plenty of customers on busy North Monroe Street.
The nine teens, all between 14 and 16 years old, then scurried off in several groups. They met up again about 70 minutes later at Garfield Park, where they stomped on Kevin Wilson's head and body "like he was a trampoline," according to an eyewitness.
None of the teens knew the victims. Their motive was first reported as a game of "point 'em out, knock 'em out." But testimony at the trial revealed that they were looking for people to rob. However, once they began kicking and stomping Newingham, they apparently forgot to rob him. A wallet was taken from Wilson.
."Kroncke, a prosecutor for the past 14 years, said she had never before worked any case similar to this one, in which defendants killed someone they did not know and did so in a public place "where anyone could see them."
