Things Done Changed
They're reopening the Emmett Till Murder Case. In times past, I probably would have been really excited about this, but at this point, I'm not sure what there is to be gained. I don't know that there's a political motive at work, but the timing seems to be awfully convenient. I would imagine that Black folks are supposed to be happy that an attempt is being made to right a monumental historic wrong, but I think we've got bigger fish to fry. Nowadays, it's not some renegade rednecks Emmett would have to look out for (or maybe he just wouldn't have to be as concerned), it's those cats in the 'hood. Like Biggie said, things done changed.
