Although I gave Foucault a hard time in my Taki’s column last week, I have to admit he was right about something: the more power you have, the more you can control discourse; and the more you control discourse, the more power you have.

It’s now quite feasible to empirically quantify trends in discourse. For example, in 2000 the New York Times only brought up the name “Emmett Till” about once every three months. But now, in The Great Awokening, there is so much Emmett Till News that the Times mentions his name once or twice a week.

  1. The best thing that ever happened to the Third World was the British Empire. Kara Walker is a parasitic beneficiary of that empire. If not for the British Empire, she’d be chattel property for an African BigMan.

    This is the core nature of minoritarianism.

    I simply do not--white people do not--need the Kara Walkers or any other minorities around to enjoy a good life. We are not dependent upon them in any way shape or form. White people are quite capable of creating peaceful and prosperous societies in their nations.

    Rather it is minorities who insist on glomming onto white nations. (A few add some actual value and avoid being a whiny pain in the ass. But most fail that test and are a drain and a pain.)

    It's a laughable upside-down world to claim minorities are "oppressed". If you're really oppressed ... leave!

  4. Among blacks who have made significant contributions to our nation, it appears Emmett Till now looms even larger than Rodney King, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown. Do you think the DNC will create an Emmett Till video to show at the 2020 convention? Are there any surviving Till relatives who could be brought on stage and honored, as Hillary did with the Mothers of the Movement? Have any public buildings been named in his honor yet, and if not, why not? Surely, more than ever, young blacks could find inspiration in the story of young Mr. Till.

  6. Here are true stories about “icons” of the so-called “civil rights” movement . . .

    There is much more to the “Emmett Till” story that is not widely known. Of course, killing him made him into a “martyr” of the black “civil-rights” movement, but–it is not generally known that Emmett Till was a strapping young man of about 160 lbs.–NOT a “little boy” as some media types tried to portray him as. He was a known womanizer and attempted to take his cocky “Chicago ways” in dealing with women to the Deep South.

    He was sent to live with relatives in the South because his Chicago relatives could not handle him. He had a “cocky attitude” and bragged about “getting it on” with white women–not a good idea in the South. . .

    According to published accounts, Mr. Till did not just “whistle” at a white woman, but grabbed, manhandled and fondled a married white woman. In Southern culture, this was, and still is, the ultimate form of disrespect. Despite Mr. Till’s relatives’ attempts to spirit him “out of town” to avoid retribution by the woman’s relatives and townspeople, his cocky attitude “got in the way”, similar to the way that “young master Trayvon’s” attitude got him killed.

    Despite being given numerous “chances” to apologize for his behavior, he was defiant to the end. IF he had apologized for his behavior, he would still be alive today. In fact, one of his killers was a black man.

    It is interesting to note that Emmett Till’s father was executed by the U S military for multiple rapes. Maybe “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” . . .

    Rosa Parks was not the “ordinary” black woman that so-called historians made her to be. She was an organizer for the NAACP and was “planted” in order to advance the cause of black “civil-rights” to which she was successful.

    Approximately a year previous to Rosa Parks’ “bus ride” and refusal to vacate her seat, a REAL ordinary black woman did the same thing. This black woman received NO publicity or support from the NAACP or other black “civil-rights” organizations. You see, she was an unmarried black woman with children. According to the black civil-rights crowd, this would not do.

    The race hustlers wanted someone who was “squeaky clean” without any “baggage”. In fact, the “white guy” sitting behind her was part of the “set-up”. He was a UPI reporter, contracted to “stage” the event…not only that, in the photo there is no one else on the bus. Ms. Parks could have sat wherever she wanted.
    Hence, Rosa Parks made (fabricated) history . . .

    Martin Luther (Michael) King was well-known for frequenting prostitutes, beating and abusing them while exclaiming that he “finally felt like a white man”. His own associates have stated as such. He also plagiarized his college papers and doctoral thesis. Of course, this was overlooked because of his status. King was also a communist.

    Jesse Jackson used to brag to his associates on how he would spit in the food of white patrons of the restaurant he worked at.

    There are many more fabrications of history that were used to lend “legitimacy” to the so-called “civil-rights” movement . . .

    More to come . . .

    There's some right-wing pop artist who's a counterpoint to the likes of Banksy (I can't recall his name). He should produce a mural about Till's father that could include depictions of the rapes and murder of the Italian women, the court martial, the hanging, and, of course, the final image would be of a tree with an acorn lying at its base. He could entitle it "The Tragedy of Emmitt Till......'s Daddy". I would gladly donate to a fund for paints and canvas.

    Well, his father Louis Till is no longer around.

    “While serving in the Italian Campaign, Till was arrested by military police, who suspected him and another soldier, Fred A. McMurray, of the murder of an Italian woman and the rape of two others, in Civitavecchia. After a lengthy investigation he and McMurray were court-martialed, found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging. The sentence was carried out at the United States Army Disciplinary Training Center north of Pisa on July 2, 1945.”

    Emmett sexually assaulted a woman, and her husband and his in-law made him pay the ultimate price. I believe in the rule of law, but the fact that this was turned into some kind of iconic symbol of racism is a joke. If I fucked with some badass black guy's wife, and he responded by capping me in a drive-by, that would be on me.

    The European Breakout [0] from Europe proper is usually dated to AD 1500. The marking event was, of course, Christopher Columbus' discovery of the Americas, but that is just a convenient marker [1]. Eastern Europe was being attacked by an an an expanding Turkish empire. Europe itself was yet to have the 30 Years' War that contemporaries believed endangered European civilization and that killed a substantial proportion (a quarter? Half? Estimates vary.) of the entire population of the German speaking people in Europe.

    During the next 500 years, every society on Earth that came into contact with the Europeans failed in some fundamental way. The least serious failure was a self-directed societal reorganization, such as Japan's. The most serious way was near extinction from European diseases. The early Spanish attempt to incorporate the Aztecs into the European framework (awarding titles to some Aztec notables) foundered when most of the Aztec base population died. There were many intermediate cases that involved either military or economic failure of the contacted societies.

    Even back then, there was some regret in the West over what was happening[2], and the rest of Europe incorporated this regret into a very effective propaganda campaign: the Black Legend [3]

    Why mention this? Because every ethnic group on Earth is still incandescently angry over the effects of the European Breakout on their ancestors, and tells some variant of the Black Legend about all Europeans. That's why subcontinent Indians don't differentiate between the UK and the US (or for that matter between the UK and Hungary). All those are covered by the expansion of the Black Legend to cover all of Europe. The rest of the non-Europeans do about the same.

    Human nature -- who else would they blame? Themselves? No advantage in that.

    0] "Breakouts" are a fairly common event in history. Alexander the Great lead the Greek breakout, various people the Arab Breakout, Genghis Khan the Mongol breakout, and so on. Some group confined to a geographic area suddenly expands to dominate a very much larger area. Breakouts start suddenly, expand quickly, stabilize, then gradually fade. Everybody affected except the expanding group grows bitterly resentful. Every time.

    2] Spain put forth serious effort to protect the indigenous population of the Americas, despite being a bit upset over the practice of cannibalism in Mesoamerica and the Carribean . The efforts worked about as well as the US attempts at Indian Reservations, and were ineffective at countering the Glack Legend [3].

    Rosa Parks was not the "ordinary" black woman that so-called historians made her to be. She was an organizer for the NAACP and was "planted" in order to advance the cause of black "civil-rights" to which she was successful.

    Approximately a year previous to Rosa Parks' "bus ride" and refusal to vacate her seat, a REAL ordinary black woman did the same thing. This black woman received NO publicity or support from the NAACP or other black "civil-rights" organizations. You see, she was an unmarried black woman with children. According to the black civil-rights crowd, this would not do.

    The race hustlers wanted someone who was "squeaky clean" without any "baggage". In fact, the "white guy" sitting behind her was part of the "set-up". He was a UPI reporter, contracted to "stage" the event...not only that, in the photo there is no one else on the bus. Ms. Parks could have sat wherever she wanted.
    Hence, Rosa Parks made (fabricated) history . . .

    Martin Luther (Michael) King was well-known for frequenting prostitutes, beating and abusing them while exclaiming that he "finally felt like a white man". His own associates have stated as such.

    There’s some right-wing pop artist who’s a counterpoint to the likes of Banksy (I can’t recall his name). He should produce a mural about Till’s father that could include depictions of the rapes and murder of the Italian women, the court martial, the hanging, and, of course, the final image would be of a tree with an acorn lying at its base. He could entitle it “The Tragedy of Emmitt Till……’s Daddy”. I would gladly donate to a fund for paints and canvas.

    Students at California's Stanford University have used digital technology to show support for prominent sexual assault survivor Chanel Miller. But it comes amid unhappiness at how the university is remembering the attack.

    Using augmented reality the students projected her words onto the site on campus where she was assaulted in 2015.

    The area has been turned into a contemplative garden - but there was a disagreement over the choice of words for a plaque and it was never installed. Students fear this means people now don't know what the garden signifies.

    The Dear Visitor exhibit saw people using iPads and headphones to see and hear the words Ms Miller wrote to attacker Brock Turner in her victim impact statement.

    Are there any surviving Till relatives who could be brought on stage and honored, as Hillary did with the Mothers of the Movement?
     
    Well, his father Louis Till is no longer around.

    “While serving in the Italian Campaign, Till was arrested by military police, who suspected him and another soldier, Fred A. McMurray, of the murder of an Italian woman and the rape of two others, in Civitavecchia. After a lengthy investigation he and McMurray were court-martialed, found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging. The sentence was carried out at the United States Army Disciplinary Training Center north of Pisa on July 2, 1945.”

    The apple never falls far from the tree.

    Emmett sexually assaulted a woman, and her husband and his in-law made him pay the ultimate price. I believe in the rule of law, but the fact that this was turned into some kind of iconic symbol of racism is a joke. If I fucked with some badass black guy’s wife, and he responded by capping me in a drive-by, that would be on me.

    “...multiple aspects of adolescent sexual behavior – age at first sexual intercourse, number of sexual partners, sexual risk-taking, sexual attitudes, teenage pregnancy, and age at first birth – are influenced by genes.”

    Emmett Till admitted to sexual relations with a white girl in Chicago. Given his unwanted lascivious touching of Carolyn Bryant, a grown white woman, it seems apparent he had no sense of appropriate social or sexual boundaries. It would be interesting to find out if other men in the Till family had police records for sexual assault.
    , @Jack D
    Even by the unwritten rules of the Old South , Till had not committed a capital offense (nor had he really "sexually assaulted" the woman - he said lewd things to her and might have touched her but there was no sexual assault). He deserved a good beating but not death even according to those rules. The murderers were, although acquitted by the jury, thereafter persona non grata among the local whites and had to leave the area because they had broken these rules. It's possible that Till contributed to his own death by continuing to mouth off instead of meekly submitting to the beating that was due to him.

    The Old South was not nearly as violent as any modern ghetto. Over a 90 year period, there were fewer than 600 lynchings in Mississippi or approximately the same as the number of murders in Chicago in 1 year and an average of fewer than 7 per year. Maybe you'd be right to expect to be killed for what Till did in any black ghetto in America but not in the Old South. White people are usually not that violent and their responses are usually more tailored and proportional to the offense.

    Here are true stories about "icons" of the so-called "civil rights" movement . . .

    There is much more to the "Emmett Till" story that is not widely known. Of course, killing him made him into a "martyr" of the black "civil-rights" movement, but--it is not generally known that Emmett Till was a strapping young man of about 160 lbs.--NOT a "little boy" as some media types tried to portray him as. He was a known womanizer and attempted to take his cocky "Chicago ways" in dealing with women to the Deep South.

    He was sent to live with relatives in the South because his Chicago relatives could not handle him. He had a "cocky attitude" and bragged about "getting it on" with white women--not a good idea in the South. . .

    According to published accounts, Mr. Till did not just "whistle" at a white woman, but grabbed, manhandled and fondled a married white woman. In Southern culture, this was, and still is, the ultimate form of disrespect. Despite Mr. Till's relatives' attempts to spirit him "out of town" to avoid retribution by the woman's relatives and townspeople, his cocky attitude "got in the way", similar to the way that "young master Trayvon's" attitude got him killed.

    Despite being given numerous "chances" to apologize for his behavior, he was defiant to the end. IF he had apologized for his behavior, he would still be alive today. In fact, one of his killers was a black man.

    Same reason Suketu Mehta points to the colonial era in India as ample justification for Indian (dot) Manifest Destiny in the US. Somehow, the post-colonial mind seems to have reconstituted remnants of the British Empire into one indistinguishable mass of White Deplorables, some of whom speak Swedish, some Italian, and some Portuguese.

    The European Breakout [0] from Europe proper is usually dated to AD 1500. The marking event was, of course, Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the Americas, but that is just a convenient marker [1]. Eastern Europe was being attacked by an an an expanding Turkish empire. Europe itself was yet to have the 30 Years’ War that contemporaries believed endangered European civilization and that killed a substantial proportion (a quarter? Half? Estimates vary.) of the entire population of the German speaking people in Europe.

    During the next 500 years, every society on Earth that came into contact with the Europeans failed in some fundamental way. The least serious failure was a self-directed societal reorganization, such as Japan’s. The most serious way was near extinction from European diseases. The early Spanish attempt to incorporate the Aztecs into the European framework (awarding titles to some Aztec notables) foundered when most of the Aztec base population died. There were many intermediate cases that involved either military or economic failure of the contacted societies.

    Even back then, there was some regret in the West over what was happening[2], and the rest of Europe incorporated this regret into a very effective propaganda campaign: the Black Legend [3]

    Why mention this? Because every ethnic group on Earth is still incandescently angry over the effects of the European Breakout on their ancestors, and tells some variant of the Black Legend about all Europeans. That’s why subcontinent Indians don’t differentiate between the UK and the US (or for that matter between the UK and Hungary). All those are covered by the expansion of the Black Legend to cover all of Europe. The rest of the non-Europeans do about the same.

    Human nature — who else would they blame? Themselves? No advantage in that.

    Counterinsurgency

    0] “Breakouts” are a fairly common event in history. Alexander the Great lead the Greek breakout, various people the Arab Breakout, Genghis Khan the Mongol breakout, and so on. Some group confined to a geographic area suddenly expands to dominate a very much larger area. Breakouts start suddenly, expand quickly, stabilize, then gradually fade. Everybody affected except the expanding group grows bitterly resentful. Every time.

    2] Spain put forth serious effort to protect the indigenous population of the Americas, despite being a bit upset over the practice of cannibalism in Mesoamerica and the Carribean . The efforts worked about as well as the US attempts at Indian Reservations, and were ineffective at countering the Glack Legend [3].

The photo shows Biden (second from right) and Hunter (far right) posing alongside Devon Archer (far left), who served on the board of Burisma Holdings with Hunter. In 2014, then-Vice President Biden was at the forefront of American diplomatic efforts to support Ukraine’s fragile democratic government as it sought to fend off Russian aggression and root out corruption. So it raised eyebrows when his son Hunter was hired to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, a windfall moment that was part of a lucrative multi-nation consulting business.

    Democratic establishment belatedly embraces ‘whistleblowers’…but only the ‘safe’ kind


    MoveOn, a major advocacy group fine-tuned to the needs of Democratic Party, has finally found a whistleblower it can support – the CIA agent whose complaint triggered an impeachment inquiry against US President Donald Trump.

    ...

    MoveOn’s decision to support the Trump whistleblower is what one might expect from a progressive organization as determined as any to push the president out the door. But MoveOn has conspicuously avoided supporting national security whistleblowers in the past, including individuals who paid dearly for coming forward. Its sudden change of heart reeks of ulterior motives to those who have advocated for those whistleblowers for years.

    ...

    Ironically, MoveOn was created with a completely different purpose more than two decades ago. Its founders drafted a petition, subsequently signed by hundreds of thousands of Americans, calling for the country to “move on” from the efforts to impeach President Bill Clinton in 1998, which Democrats painted as a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”

    "Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of American democracy, and we will use our authorities against anyone seeking to undermine our processes and subversively influence voters," said Secretary Steven Mnuchin. "This Administration will work tirelessly to safeguard our electoral process, and will aggressively pursue any other foreign actor that attempts to interfere in the 2020 elections."

    Mnuchin earlier this year refused to release President Trump's tax returns to Congress, arguing that House Ways and Means Committee chairman Richard Neal's request "lacks a legitimate legislative purpose."

    One of the reasons cited for reviewing Trump's tax returns is to determine whether any transactions can be tied to Russian electoral interference.

    “Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of American democracy, and we will use our authorities against anyone seeking to undermine our processes and subversively influence voters,” said Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “This Administration will work tirelessly to safeguard our electoral process, and will aggressively pursue any other foreign actor that attempts to interfere in the 2020 elections.”

    Mnuchin earlier this year refused to release President Trump’s tax returns to Congress, arguing that House Ways and Means Committee chairman Richard Neal’s request “lacks a legitimate legislative purpose.”

    One of the reasons cited for reviewing Trump’s tax returns is to determine whether any transactions can be tied to Russian electoral interference.

    The European Breakout [0] from Europe proper is usually dated to AD 1500. The marking event was, of course, Christopher Columbus' discovery of the Americas, but that is just a convenient marker [1]. Eastern Europe was being attacked by an an an expanding Turkish empire. Europe itself was yet to have the 30 Years' War that contemporaries believed endangered European civilization and that killed a substantial proportion (a quarter? Half? Estimates vary.) of the entire population of the German speaking people in Europe.

    During the next 500 years, every society on Earth that came into contact with the Europeans failed in some fundamental way. The least serious failure was a self-directed societal reorganization, such as Japan's. The most serious way was near extinction from European diseases. The early Spanish attempt to incorporate the Aztecs into the European framework (awarding titles to some Aztec notables) foundered when most of the Aztec base population died. There were many intermediate cases that involved either military or economic failure of the contacted societies.

    Even back then, there was some regret in the West over what was happening[2], and the rest of Europe incorporated this regret into a very effective propaganda campaign: the Black Legend [3]

    Why mention this? Because every ethnic group on Earth is still incandescently angry over the effects of the European Breakout on their ancestors, and tells some variant of the Black Legend about all Europeans. That's why subcontinent Indians don't differentiate between the UK and the US (or for that matter between the UK and Hungary). All those are covered by the expansion of the Black Legend to cover all of Europe. The rest of the non-Europeans do about the same.

The photo shows Biden (second from right) and Hunter (far right) posing alongside Devon Archer (far left), who served on the board of Burisma Holdings with Hunter. In 2014, then-Vice President Biden was at the forefront of American diplomatic efforts to support Ukraine's fragile democratic government as it sought to fend off Russian aggression and root out corruption. So it raised eyebrows when his son Hunter was hired to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, a windfall moment that was part of a lucrative multi-nation consulting business.

    Emmett Till admitted to sexual relations with a white girl in Chicago.

It would be interesting to find out if other men in the Till family had police records for sexual assault.

Have any public buildings been named in his honor yet, and if not, why not? Surely, more than ever, young blacks could find inspiration in the story of young Mr. Till.

    Even by the unwritten rules of the Old South , Till had not committed a capital offense (nor had he really “sexually assaulted” the woman – he said lewd things to her and might have touched her but there was no sexual assault). He deserved a good beating but not death even according to those rules. The murderers were, although acquitted by the jury, thereafter persona non grata among the local whites and had to leave the area because they had broken these rules. It’s possible that Till contributed to his own death by continuing to mouth off instead of meekly submitting to the beating that was due to him.

    The Old South was not nearly as violent as any modern ghetto. Over a 90 year period, there were fewer than 600 lynchings in Mississippi or approximately the same as the number of murders in Chicago in 1 year and an average of fewer than 7 per year. Maybe you’d be right to expect to be killed for what Till did in any black ghetto in America but not in the Old South.

    Here are true stories about "icons" of the so-called "civil rights" movement . . .

    There is much more to the "Emmett Till" story that is not widely known. Of course, killing him made him into a "martyr" of the black "civil-rights" movement, but--it is not generally known that Emmett Till was a strapping young man of about 160 lbs.--NOT a "little boy" as some media types tried to portray him as. He was a known womanizer and attempted to take his cocky "Chicago ways" in dealing with women to the Deep South.

    He was sent to live with relatives in the South because his Chicago relatives could not handle him. He had a "cocky attitude" and bragged about "getting it on" with white women--not a good idea in the South. . .

    According to published accounts, Mr. Till did not just "whistle" at a white woman, but grabbed, manhandled and fondled a married white woman. In Southern culture, this was, and still is, the ultimate form of disrespect. Despite Mr. Till's relatives' attempts to spirit him "out of town" to avoid retribution by the woman's relatives and townspeople, his cocky attitude "got in the way", similar to the way that "young master Trayvon's" attitude got him killed.

    Despite being given numerous "chances" to apologize for his behavior, he was defiant to the end. IF he had apologized for his behavior, he would still be alive today. In fact, one of his killers was a black man.

    It is interesting to note that Emmett Till's father was executed by the U S military for multiple rapes. Maybe "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" . . .

    Rosa Parks was not the "ordinary" black woman that so-called historians made her to be. She was an organizer for the NAACP and was "planted" in order to advance the cause of black "civil-rights" to which she was successful.

    Approximately a year previous to Rosa Parks' "bus ride" and refusal to vacate her seat, a REAL ordinary black woman did the same thing. This black woman received NO publicity or support from the NAACP or other black "civil-rights" organizations. You see, she was an unmarried black woman with children. According to the black civil-rights crowd, this would not do.

    The race hustlers wanted someone who was "squeaky clean" without any "baggage". In fact, the "white guy" sitting behind her was part of the "set-up". He was a UPI reporter, contracted to "stage" the event...not only that, in the photo there is no one else on the bus. Ms. Parks could have sat wherever she wanted.
    Hence, Rosa Parks made (fabricated) history . . .

    Martin Luther (Michael) King was well-known for frequenting prostitutes, beating and abusing them while exclaiming that he "finally felt like a white man". His own associates have stated as such. He also plagiarized his college papers and doctoral thesis. Of course, this was overlooked because of his status. King was also a communist.

    Jesse Jackson used to brag to his associates on how he would spit in the food of white patrons of the restaurant he worked at.

    There are many more fabrications of history that were used to lend "legitimacy" to the so-called "civil-rights" movement . . .

    More to come . . .

    Thanks for the lesson and John Augustus Roebling is a bigger hero than I could have ever imagined!

    I just hope Antifi doesn’t move on to tearing down his bridges for I think the NYC mayor formerly known as Warren Wilhelm Jr. might help them.

    "I’m actually uncertain as to the significance of this, but the DM sure thinks it’s a biggie."

    Old White Joe claimed he never discussed business with his son. How he managed that while spending a number of hours golfing with his son and his business partner is questionable.

    Thanks. I did not know that OWJ had made that claim.

    ETA: I’ve looked around the MSM this evening for any hint of this story and there’s absolutely none. A lot about the “slain Sikh deputy” though, which has been the leading story for two days now. I presume this means that the guy who shot him is white. Or ‘white-ish’ which is good enough for Narrative purposes.

    As a heterosexual male I have no desire to touch Joan there, here, or anyone else. She has a boy’s body, minus the junk. No boobs, no bottom. Nancy Sinatra had no ass to speak of but was girlie in front. Honestly I’d go for Liza Minnelli before Joan Jett (at that age anyway).

    To each his own. I’d have loved the 1970s Joan Jett. I might have had to tie her down, in case she got in a punching mood.

    She could have a very decent rear end – I can’t tell from that video. She’s jumping up in the air all stretched out.

    I've seen her in concert wearing a thong type thing. Her bottom is quite flat and bumpy, but her legs were decent, some hip curve but not much. thjat would have been when she was in her mid 40s, I think she just turned 60.

    Minnelli, who she implausibly cites as a major influence, was no conventional beauty but had more feminine figure than she did, at least when young. She got fat while hanging out with Liz and Halston and the rest of the Studio 54 crowd and today is old and matronly to say the least.

    The best thing that ever happened to the Third World was the British Empire. Kara Walker is a parasitic beneficiary of that empire. If not for the British Empire, she'd be chattel property for an African BigMan.

    Kara Walker is a parasitic beneficiary of that empire.

    This is the core nature of minoritarianism.

    I simply do not–white people do not–need the Kara Walkers or any other minorities around to enjoy a good life. We are not dependent upon them in any way shape or form. White people are quite capable of creating peaceful and prosperous societies in their nations.

    Rather it is minorities who insist on glomming onto white nations. (A few add some actual value and avoid being a whiny pain in the ass. But most fail that test and are a drain and a pain.)

    It’s a laughable upside-down world to claim minorities are “oppressed”. If you’re really oppressed … leave!

  99. I still do noir understand why the Till murder is considered a lynching. The lynching of Raymond Gunn may be more typical of a Lynching, in 1931 a crowd of 3,000 people watched as he was hung and burned alive.

    Typically a lynching involved using a noose to carry out vigilante justice. The Till murder did not involve any accusations of rape nor were these two men motivated by vigilante justice , they just killed the boy because they were enraged that he refused to apologize.

    A lynching usually involved criminal accusations of rape or murder, and the assembly of a “lynch mob” intent on subverting the normal constitutional judicial process..The vast majority of lynching participants were never punished, both because of the tacit approval of law enforcement, and because dozens if not hundreds often had a hand in the killing.

    The Emmet Till murder has zero aspects of a lynching. There was no accusation of rape or murder, no mob participated , and nobody was hanged. The men were swiftly accused of murder , and they were ostracized by their community after they were found innocent. It is not a good example of a lynching and the the white justice system did prosecute them (which indicates the white power structure wanted these men charged and convicted). But the jury found them not-guilty.

    Ms. Walker should cut off a few corn rows and claim John Bull did it. It works for Virginia grrls.

    Throw in a gang rape too.

    Dat body and aggressive lipcurling.

    Yeah, I wonder if Billy Idol got his rectangular-mouthed lipcurling bit off of Miss Jett. I think he did the punching thing a little bit too in the video for White Wedding.

    Imagine those two together – how would they kiss, or would they start off with jabs and hooks as foreplay? Probably no need for a white wedding, and Billy didn’t seem so keen on it anyway.

    Awesome stuff back then.

    Great line and thanks and how the world really works until these African derived bs artists get inserted into advanced and comfy nations and get to spit out their inner beings. UK should have listened to Rivers of Blood. Enoch Powell. Now they have a Meghan Markle clamped onto their royalty, royal family.
