I haven't told her TV partner Channel two that it's up to state lawmakers to decide what to do with their cut and how to move forward.

GM Has a New Logo
"Me set this up for everybody. General motors has a new logo. And it's similar to the old logo. It's still a square box. It has the letters g and m on it. it has 'em on it For those on youtube. Mr bruce's just throwing it up here on our screen we can see. It's it's it's it's it's a rebrand right so the debate going on in the motor one dot com universe is whether this is a good thing a bad thing ridiculous thing a terrible move a smart move. Let me give you a little bit. More background I don't really mind this. Rebrand that much but i also come from a marketing background. I had a marketing career. Long before i went time into journalism. So i i think maybe i get a slightly different viewpoint of the rebranding process and why companies tend to do it But john why don't you lead off because that's the reason you're here john is. John is the one that opposes my viewpoint and wait one second here. I get to play referee here. I get the. I'm calling the balls and strikes if someone starts taking too long. I get veto power. Because my thing is i have a completely different opinion. That both of you. That i will express at the end but comes up in. This discussion of re brands is that we've been seeing a lot of them a lot of the just in the past year i am going to share an image with you guys Is right now of three of them. What we say so. Volkswagen simplifies their emblem. Bmw's simplifies their Nissan simplifies their envelope. All of this has happened in the past year and there are other examples that i can pull up. There's maserati there is a mazda. Oh so this has kind of been bubbling up and then this. Gm one came up and chris in john in our motor one chat kind of started going at things and so i wanna give them the opportunity both to air their feelings about this badge and then when they're done i will come in at the end and give my opinion which is barely different from both pairs. So i'm gonna pop up an image of the gm badge. Actually i the they are going to tell you how they feel about the emmett. Mr neff i yield the floor to the distinguished gentleman. Here the image you popped up the gm the new gm logo Bruce was black and white. It's forgiving that is i would say the best version of the logo. Oh their degree. There's the gradient one which i think adds a level of ridiculousness to the logo so For those not viewing on youtube it is this new. Gm logo with a gradient. That goes from aquamarine blue into like the traditional jam. Blew into another blue All right so my views on this level. When i see it my first impression is that it is juvenile. That's the word. I used that chris and i were arguing over in our chat. I say juvenile. Because i think it looks like Like gm created an iphone app and this was the icon for it Or you know this is something a this looks like the The icon for new adobe software next to your photo shop and your illustrator It's trying to look Hi tack and and Not bleeding edge but more like you know. I'm part of the software revolution Which is true. That's happening in cars. Software and computing power is growing exponentially more important Let me take a note of that really quick. You said it's true. Sure sure that is granted and of course another reason that that the juvenile comes to mind as they went from two capital letters Which is proper grammar for It's an acronym general motors. You know and they went to to lower case letters so that has a juvenile edge to it to me This gradient is ridiculous and a first year. Art student would probably create that in photoshop And some people say like it's supposed to evoke a plug. And i guess i guess that's supposed to be negative space of the m and the underline of the m. Maybe i don't know. I i don't really see i don't get that as a strong message. from the logo. Now when i say it's bad. Like when i say it's bad like i don't think it's the worst thing in the world My perspective is that. If if i were if i were running the company. Or if i were an executive in the boardroom that day i would raise my hand and said we need to rethink this. This is not what we wanna do. that said i don't think logo bruins gm. I don't think. I don't th- i actually don't think logos and names of companies have that much power especially if your product is good. Your product is good. It can overcome a logo or or a bad name. And i say that having worked at a couple of websites that had ridiculous bad names and we're still successful because they were just good websites and people look past the name and just you know they thought of the brand of the site as as what the product is and the name took came on Took on a new meaning. And i think this logo could be the same way you know if gm succeeds in its easy. Revolution will probably look at the logo. with you know in a completely different way than we do today when gm's future plans are all promises and vaporware right now

"We've got a very inexpensive wine. The vonda e. v. a. n. t. a. mullebeck twenty nineteen from mendoza argentina. It's from all d. And of course it sells for four dollars and forty nine cents four fifty. They found a way to get a penny under that much. So there you go so it's very cheap wine ma back from mendoza's good. I mean they have a ton of mullebeck rape. There's been years all over the place. You're doing a young lines. Twenty nine thousand nine vintage those wines are plentiful. Those grapes are plentiful so to get a good wine from there isn't unexpected. This puts this wine in at four forty nine this puts in this in the two buck. Chuck charles shaw category. Because he got to pay importer and they got to ship it up margin tina to plug chuck house. We central coast california. It's a little bit. There's some cost associated there that are savings so so i didn't know what to expect with it and it's actually pretty good. It's not a complicated one. What what you get is what you get up bra. It's all the way through the wine put. It's not bad taste is pretty good. It's got some toasty vanilla oak things going on which is which is oak barrel flavoring and at four dollars and forty nine cents. I doubt if they entry used barrels they are kind of expensive. And there's no room in poor forty nine wind for that and there's other ways you can get oak flavoring in and at four for you. Don't care been whatever way they used to get that labor there. It's much appreciate emmett. Take a sip. It's kinda smooth. It's scannel medium bodied. it's got really rich. Black cherry flavor scott. Some black pepper's sop spice. Maybe maybe some cranberry towards the end of it. You know no midfeld like that but it does taste good.

If there's a lot of mullebeck some good wineries and argentina the entry level mullebeck. That are really good. And i wouldn't put this up there with the best of the wineries foot as a four forty nine mall beckett actually is fine. I mean if you're at a budget you know you're having a party four bottles of this for twenty bucks in home. People are not going to complain. You ask you how much the wind class golan's guessing four fifty good
Is it too late to get in to Bitcoin?
"Back in the day when amazon i one public it shot up roughly after some fits and spurts. It went up to about ninety dollars. You it was like i'm too late. Missed it gone. And then it capitulated down at shot all the way down to two and i was like it's gone amazon's finished not even gonna look at it and then it went back up to ninety. I missed it. I missed it again then. Went up to three hundred to four hundred. It's this constant m. I too late emmett too. Early internal struggle that we have in our brain. What do you think about that. Yeah i think this is exactly so what you're really describing is Things being relative and this is actually think the fundamentally challenging concept with something like bitcoin which is a paradigm shift so people think about bitcoin relative to other assets. If you call a lot of conversations i had in two thousand nineteen twenty twenty where around bitcoins volatility right but bitcoins volatility relative to what because volatility is a relative measure price when we talk about price it's a relative measure because what am i Pricing bitcoin and typically people are pricing in dollars so relatively speaking yes. Bitcoin is volatile compared to holding dollars. But if we compare bitcoin to say equities if you quainton bonds if we compare bitcoin to precious metals the volatility doesn't look so extreme. What really happened at the start of this year. In march of twenty twenty the world shifted the world changed completely and forty years of capital markets. Beliefs were shattered like smashed with a hammer completely shattered. Now changes really hard for people and one of the things. That's really interesting For me personally. I want things to go fast right. Because i've in crypto and things fast and like wait why has it taken a six years to get to this point but in reality as you know the arc of time is very long and it takes a lot of time for the world to change for people to internalize that change and adjust their mental models right and a big part of this in a big part of ice than so much time talking and writing and trying to teach and communicate is. It's really about giving people new frameworks mental models to help them. Integrate this new way of thinking these mental models into how they view the world trade. That's really important. I think there's so many. Brilliant people in crypto. Who do this in different ways. So we have this really broad cross section of people communicating a lot of ways talking to a lot of different audiences which is amazing. The we had this fundamental shift happened. Everything got everything else got crazy. It's not that bitcoin got crazy. That everything else got way freaking crazier and what i love is when i talk to people about. Bitcoin bitcoin to extensive. I'm like let me ask you a question. Did you did you. By tesla five hundred and yeah. Of course i did. Like tesla's going to and i'm like okay. So tesla has appreciated more this year than bill. Clinton has tesla appreciated close to seven hundred percent in two thousand twenty yet you bought at the high and they clean appreciated two hundred and fifty percent and twenty twenty yet. You refuse to buy so help me understand right even if we're using the same of dollars even if we're looking at the same volatility measure somehow bitcoin Why and then he will start thinking. They're like wait a minute because math is hard this we know the people just. They're not thinking logically for some reasons for some people when they think about bitcoin their brain goes into like a tailspin and logic goes out the window. But this is again why i think the collectibles narrative is in so interesting to me because when i say to people like do you know what a honus wagner card is. They're like yeah. Of course. I know i'm like i don't know like okay. One honus wagner card is two point five million dollars. Do you think bitcoin at twenty five thousand thirty five thousand forty thousand is expensive in there. Like probably not right. So let's dig into that tesla coin thing. What part of the fact that. Bitcoin is effectively. Founded by an an-and sushi. Who we do not know if it's a he she it what vs on. Musk pop very public. Are we in agreement. That's the toshi was the aliens. Are we doing alias. I'm kidding shocking. Oh every time. I hear that especially in clubhouse. Everyone's like oh yeah. It was created by the alien somebody yeah. Let's not do that you know. I'm already speculating. That twenty two thousand one. The aliens are finally come here and just completely take over. But i don't want to hear that. The ashley also created the nsa taverners been around for a while and then there's a holiday larue like there. What what part in in psychology because you talked to a lot of institutional investors to you talked to a lot of big money. What part of that psychology. That one you have a very public figure with ilan and then too you have associate whom no one really knows who it is what it is. What part of that you place until list. Yeah so i actually think. Bitcoin and tesla are very similar in one regard both are aspirational and let me explain what i mean by that. Bitcoin invites you to conceptualize the world in a different way. Tesla what eon has done with business. Ilan has memed a new reality into existence. The way he talks about tesla right is completely detached from the economic realities of that business. Completely detached from the economic realities of that business but it doesn't matter because the vision that ilan describes the persona that he has the cult of personality he's created around himself is aspirational grit song by the way cult of personality. That's a great song. it's also great like psychological phenomenon. And what. I think eli done so effectively is. He's the zeitgeist okay. Markets are just sentiment machines. And it's it's been really interesting. Because every value investor. I talked to like twenty twenty. Made their brains explode. It literally made their slowed. They're looking at these stocks trading at fourteen hundred two thousand three thousand acts he for pe ratio rate and their brains are exploiting. That's our valued. And i'm like you forgot that nothing acid matters anymore. We don't live in the world that you lived in two years ago. this is not about value. We live in a world where there is a lot of uncertainty uncertainty about the future uncertainty about the stability institutions uncertainty about our role in this world. That's unfolding and in times of uncertainty. What people look for is vision. Right and what elon. Musk articulates when you talks about going to mars when you talks about. Putting for tesla on mars. That's vision right. I think satory she in so many ways and what we're doing with. Bitcoin is very similar. And i caught this. I've been really obsessed with the idea of building cathedrals lately. It's like five hundred years ago. Right if i was a visionary and had suggested for the future and i wanted to express that the only way for me to create something that withstood the test of time right to create quote unquote immutable. Truth was to build a cathedral and cathedrals took hundreds of years to build and people who built them dedicated tremendous amounts of resources to building these amazing like technology a technologically very advanced like gravity defying beautiful structures and. Whenever people saw them they would feel inspired. Right like cathedrals were how we painted a vision for the reality we wanted to live in. Okay tesla is a cathedral. Bitcoin is a cathedral. The stocks that are soaring the assets that are doing well their assets that are aspirational right and their people. Whether it's a non community of people an individual it's groups of people who believe in a vision for the future that is radically different from the future. We live today but it creates a motion. Right people look at it and they're like that is beautiful. And i wanna live in not future

How to Connect to Your Humanity and Change the World
"Today. We're going inside the head of Young Pueblo Aka Diego Perez. He's a writer poet and activist who explores his own mind to create poems about the mind. His poems or meditations in themselves and often talk about meditation teachings directly. He's also instagram famous with three hundred, twenty, nine, thousand millennial followers who receive as simple visual poems about meditation daily in their feet. Welcome young blow. Thank you so much for having me Emmett set of the year. Yeah, it's wonderful conversation. Awesome. So let's just start in dive right in because most people probably curious about the first thing they heard young Pueblo like who is this young logo is noted to meet the Guy Behind Proba tell us about young Pueblo on how that came out. was. Name that came to me a bunch of years ago. I'd say back sometimes it's funny thirteen I think the name came to me, and then over time I really developed a meaning. Around honey or team twenty fifteen I realized that I wanted to take great seriously as it was around the time where I saw that. Betaine is having a real effect in my less democracy game meditation course back in. July of two thousand twelve and after doing a few silence and David Austin courses I realized that a lot of the burden that was sort of limiting my mind's in regards to. Zaidi sadness where. They weren't totally radical, but there were decreasing and I was noticing that. I, was really feeling better and I felt like I had more choices in my mind as I could see the world a little more clearly, and then I can navigate my own actions in a way that was much more productive to my personal happiness. So In, sort of pushed me into wanting to righty might people now that healing yourself was actually a real possibility has to be. I know that for myself. I kind of went into meditation has an experiment just as I was always curious about it and it felt like the right fit so I didn't really know that's what I was Gonna get out I. Think I knew that I was going to learn a bunch of things but I didn't know that I was actually going to feel better and it wasn't until after of delving deeper into the process into the actual practice I started seeing that I so lows better sort of into writing. and. The idea of young Bible kind of really warm related around it's my understanding of the world that we are all very young collectively. If you take all humanity were all very young you know it doesn't matter if you're ninety years old is you take us as a whole giant collective we have so much to learn. The bucs Amina's for. Up when we were little children. When we went to school, we were trying to simplest things are teachers were really. Trying to get us to not hurt each other to tell the truth to be kind to one another and to generally just you know it's even like clean up ask yourself things are seem so simple that we can do as individuals but as a human collective e don't know how to do these things at all. A. Me. got. Sort of a signal that. We have a lot of growing up to as humanity and a lot of I. Think a lot of that growing up center happened during the century. We have so many big challenges ahead of us that will hopefully help us row. That this sort of. A. Renaissance, I would call it. That's happening around the mind. Is GonNa be a big big part of humanity mature. SO THAT'S A. Really helpful perspective. So somebody who has a two year old myself I spent a lot of time teaching him some very, very basic things like heating is bad. I'm sorry in some days he's amazing at it in Sunday's he just gets brought by his own emotions, his own desires and hitting back at the window. In it's interesting to look at our humanity as being a very similar place lessons that we've learned over and over again, our childhood yet they're returning in the adult hood of the individual, but still the sort of childhood of the collective. Beautiful by. Where do you see our evolution going? What do you think the path down that road is I think it's interesting because people have very different aspirations. So I wouldn't want to try to say you know all human existence is in this direction but I would say that to get to a place where we're not arming one another where we. Are Mentally ill in ourselves. That army another as arguing when sell it doesn't take. Much Work Right. Having that understanding that you know is literally to my benefits and not you is very different from what sailing Total Liberation Enlightenment's. That's actually a very easier accomplish many think that's where we're really heading as a humanity in our evolution that we're trying to lift ourselves up into that understanding that Oh right? It's not. It's not to my benefit at all to harm you in any way it actually helps my personal life to support you in your freedom, your sixty etcetera. So forth, so me I like to think about it in. In the immediate. Immediate future being like next year is not like the whole seizure. SABA. But it really is trying to get ourselves to that point where or. Individuals in because that's an idea that we've had. Throughout, all of history. Having an idea intellectually is very different from being out experiences, experience Adiba yourself or deeply being able to you'll that you know that it's your benefits are mothers I think Ruby's different practices Asami different people are engaging. Different introspective medias including meditation. That that will help get. To that point where it's like Oh right now, of course, not only do I in my mind but I. Feel my body and now I'm GonNa find better solutions than our.
"emmett" Discussed on Court Junkie
"That's friends without the our best beans. who was amatil beyond a murder victim and a posthumous civil rights figure whose name appears in the history books alongside Martin Luther King Junior and other leaders we know a lot about him not only from the news accounts written about the case back in nineteen, fifty five. But a lot of speaking engagements that his mother participated in and led and a memoir that she wrote. In two thousand and three and other memoirs that have been written by people who knew Emmett till when he was a young boy. So we get a picture of him as a kind of a fun loving young kit with a great sense of humor, big personality and someone who is known to be kind in the neighborhood known to be very helpful very close to his mother. And so we get a picture of a regular fourteen year old boy from Chicago who well liked by his friends a popular young man. My name is Chris Mattress and I teach at Stanford University in Birmingham. And published two books on the Emmett till case one back in two thousand to call at the lynching of Emmett till the anthology about the case, and then I edited a collection of essays. That look at literary representations of the murder and that was published in two and eight. And that's mother was born in rural. Mississippi. But she moved away from home years earlier. She was now a single mother raising her son Emmett in Chicago but she never lost her ties to the deep South where her relatives still lived. In one thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, five mos right amidst great uncle visited them in Illinois re sparking Emmett's interest in the south a place he hadn't gone back to since he was a child. The ninth grader was eager to get reacquainted with Mississippi and his southern cousins. He's actually supposed to go on a trip mother out. West but because Emmett is interested in going to Mississippi hasn't really been there for a while he's interested in going down at the last minute his mother agrees to let him visit. Mississippi before Emmett left and the train for Mississippi. His mother warned him about the deep south. They lived on the south side of Chicago amid rarely interacted with white people. It seemed likely that Emmett was unfamiliar with the written and unwritten rules of the Jim Crow.

The International Scientists Getting Pushed Out
"I. There was a travel ban has been chaos and confusion at airports around the. World. Tonight. Seven muslim-majority countries. Here's the map and then the trump administration froze green cards for new immigrants. Until the end of this year, the announcement came at a late night tweet president trump saying he intends to close the US to immigrants. Then some Chinese graduate students and researchers were singled out on May twenty ninth president trump announced a proclamation to suspend entry to graduate students and post doctoral researchers who attended universities affiliated with. Chinese military. So I was I was kind of psychologically prepared Emmett. Don had heard the rumors of what might be coming next. He grew up in Turkey and came to the US for his PhD Twenty Ten and is now working as a post doc in the physics department at UC Berkeley. So it wasn't a shock when in June, the administration blocked visas for a wide variety of jobs including the H. One B.

To, start his job, and then now met has an approval for an H. One B. Visa and was just one step away from getting it activated when the executive order came down and that makes any kind of life planning really hard.

Pete Way anybody that knows me knows I am enormous ufo Fan, Pete One of my all time, favorite bass players one of my favorite characters ever one of my favorite stage performers ever Pete is a guy who had a massive impact and influence on so many artists many of whom went on to much greater success quite frankly but pete really was an innovator and a super influence on many many rockers look no further for proof of that. Then the massive amount of people who posted about Pete on social media after his death was announced last Friday and you name it anybody in a major rock band. Talked about Pete and how special he was I didn't know Pete extremely well personally, but I was a huge fan and many no like I said how big a fan of Ufo I am and Pete was a big reason for that.

"You know I've always felt like that. You know it's Like I know exactly what I'm capable of my coaches teammates do but it's just I haven't had the opportunities that I need or that I want you know I feel like I was always find people behind me and stuff like that, and and now I'm just kind of to that point where I'm I will only fi forward from here on out I want those big fights and even like Dana was saying before Burgos and I thought. He was saying the winner of that fight was going to be in talks title contention and things like that. So I I truly believe have to be I was before that fight I felt like I was to fights away for fight for the title. So now possibly one or like you're saying with Cova depending on visa is. Injuries things like that. Maybe I could come back to a huge fight. You know what I mean you you never know in this work what would be the best scenario for you. Best scenario. FIBONACCI, you know like I I. WanNa. If you ask me one person I want to fight I, WANNA I wanNA fight whoever has title and I think Oscar Tonight I match we match up really well together. You know where you know similar height were both come from wrestling backgrounds were powerful explosive, all these things I just think I match up really well with him and he is the champion so. It would you know some people shy away from that? They're like you know I'd like to get you know a tune-up match or some you know. But you you want to dive right in and that's that's fucking amazing and I mean that's always like like I. Don't know I don't believe in ring rust or any of this stuff. I feel like if I'm in TIPTOP SHAPE I know how to fight man. I will you know in the better the fighter it'll bring out the best in me and and I don't want any tuneup fights. I don't want any easy fights like I I got into the sport because I believe that I'm one of the best fighters in the world I wanted to be a world champion and so like if you ask me Who Do you want if I'm always pick champion, does it surprise you at all that wrestling's come come in so strong in your time because you're you're at the age where you can appreciate it looking back wrestling's really snuck in there and become the to thing and that always surprises me because. I didn't see it. You know kind of came out of nowhere that wrestling would become pretty much. If you're under a hundred and seventy five pounds, you have to have a wrestling background today. Yeah. I mean you could make the argument you needed above two but if you're going to be in those divisions, you have to have either a very heavy. Jiu. Jitsu background. or wrestling background, it's gotta be one or the other. Yeah. No I under percent agree and because it's like wrestling, it takes years and years and years to develop skills and learn how to be a good wrestler.

W MILEM look magazine, nineteen, fifty six. The two men. Were paid four thousand dollars for the interview. The lynching the photos, the shocking acquittal, and the subsequent admission of guilt galvanized the black community. In response publications like the Chicago defender urged their readers to react to the acquittal by voting in large numbers to counter the disenfranchisement of blacks in Mississippi by a white dominated legislature, a model, which other southern states would follow excluding hundreds of thousands of citizens from their politics.

Christ Dr Martin Luther King Junior said in a speech at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. That jury in Mississippi which a few days ago when the Emmett till case freed two white men, from what might be considered one of the most brutal and inhuman crimes of the twentieth. Century worships Christ. The perpetrators of many of the world's greatest evils in our society worship Christ. This trouble is that all people like the Pharisee go to church regularly. They pay their tides offerings. And observe religiously the various ceremonial requirements. The trouble with these people however is that they worship Christ emotionally and not morally. They cast his ethical and moral insights behind the gushing smoke of emotional adoration and ceremonial piety. Eight years later. Dr King would deliver his iconic is have a dream speech on the anniversary of Emmett till's murder. Saying in part. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression will be transformed into an away. Susa Freedom. After Brian, milem admitted to look magazine. They had killed Emmett till. Many of their friends and supporters in Mississippi. Abandoned them. Blacks boycotted the Bryant shop which went bankrupt and closed. Over the years. MILEM was charged with offenses such as assault and battery, writing bad checks and using a stolen credit card. He died of spinal cancer on December, thirtieth nineteen eighty at the age of sixty one. Bryant worked as a welder until increasing blindness. Forced him to give it up women. He and caroline divorced, and he opened a new store in Mississippi. In nineteen, eighty, four and nineteen, eighty eight, he was convicted of food stamp fraud. In the nineteen eighty five interview. Bryant denied that he had killed Emmett till, but said quote if Emmett till hadn't got out of line, it probably wouldn't have happened to him. Brian lived a private life and refused to be photographed or to reveal the exact location of his store, explaining quote. This new generation is different and I. Don't want to worry about a bullet some dark night. He died of cancer on September first nineteen. Ninety four at the age of sixty three. In two thousand five. Emmett till's body was exumed and DNA from relatives confirmed once, and for all that it was indeed Emmett till. It had extensive cranial damage, two broken wrists, a broken left Femur, and metallic fragments found in the skull, consistent with bullets from forty five caliber gun. When the First Highway Marker Remembering Emmett, till was erected in two thousand six. It was defaced with KKK. And subsequently covered over with black paint. In. Two Thousand, seven eight historical markers were placed at sites associated with Emmett till's lynching. In two thousand eight, the marker at the river spot where Emmett till's body was found was torn down. A replacement sign received more than one hundred bullet holes. That same year at age seventy two Carolyn Bryant admitted to author Timothy Tyson that she had lied during her testimony. Amid never grabbed her or uttered a single obscenity. She added quote. Nothing. That boy did could ever justify what happened to him. Patrick weems project coordinator at the EMMETT. Till Interpretive Center a museum in Sumner Mississippi said. Quote I think until you break the silence, there is still that implied consent to the false narratives set forth in nineteen fifty five. It matters that she recanted. In June of twenty eighteen, another replacement marker was installed. And in July it was again very pleased by bullets. Three University of Mississippi, students were suspended from their fraternity after posing in front of the bullet, riddled marker with guns. And posting it on Instagram.

"But three days after his abduction. Emmett. Till's mutilated body was pulled out of the Tallahassee River tied with barbed wire to a cotton gender fan. He had been stripped naked beaten. His eye was gouged out. And he was shot in the head. He was unrecognizable. EMMETT's uncle identified him by the only thing that he was wearing a silver ring. The next day on September first nineteen, fifty five Medgar Evers and the end of the Lacey Pe- issued a press release quote. It would appear from this lynching, but the state of Mississippi has decided to maintain white supremacy by murdering children. The killers of the boy felt free to lynch him because there is in the entire state, no restraining influence of decency. The N., double ACP sent a telegram to the governor of Mississippi Hugh White. Quote all decent citizens throughout the nation. Call upon you to use all the powers of your office to see that the Lynch is a fourteen year old Emmett. Louis, till are brought to justice. We cannot believe that responsible officials of the state of Mississippi condoned the murdering of children on any provocation. The governor replied. Parties charged with the murder are in jail and I have every reason to believe the courts will do their duty in prosecution. Mississippi does not condone such conduct. The lynching of Emmett, till sparked outrage across the country, local newspapers denounced the murders and the county. Deputy Sheriff John Catherine stated. Quote. The white people around here feel pretty mad about the way that poor little boy was treated and they won't stand for this. But this was not Mississippi's first lynching far from it. Mississippi had the highest number of lynchings in the south. Between Eighteen, eighty, two and nineteen, sixty eight Mississippi, lynched five hundred and eighty one black residents. Maybe more. and. White Supremacist Mississippians were known. Together by the hundreds to witness them. In, Nineteen Oh wait. A mob of two thousand whites seized ally, Pigott, a black man, accused of raping a white woman and hanged him from Telegraph Pole twenty years later Stanley and James Bearden were taken from a local jail shot dragged behind a car. And hanged. And the very same year that Emmett till was killed in nineteen, fifty, five, a white man assassinated Lamar Smith a black world war, one veteran and voting rights activists in broad daylight on the county courthouse lawn. In one thousand nine hundred sixty three medgar evers who led the investigation with the end of the Lacey. Pe- into Emmett till would be killed as well. His assassination would inspire Nina Simone Song Mississippi Goddamn. Mamie till Emmett's mother halted attempts to bury her son in Mississippi and demanded that his body be returned to Chicago. When her son's body arrived. She decided that the funeral would be open casket. I wanted the world to see what they did to my baby. There was just no way I could describe. What was in that box no way. She said. A glass top coffin was made for the purpose. Tens of thousands of people came to view and its body. Thousands more attended the funeral. She wanted the world to see what those men had done to her son. Because no one would have believed. EMMETT's. Cousin Simeon Wright recalled. And when they saw what happened, this motivated a lot of people that were standing what we call on the fence against racism. It encouraged them to get in the fight and do something about it. Photographs of Emmett's body in his casket appeared in black publications jet magazine and the Chicago defender. For almost a century African Americans were lynched with regularity and impunity. Now thanks to a mother's determination. The public could no longer pretend to ignore what they couldn't see. On September sixth, nineteen, fifty five Emmett till was buried. As News of his lynching and pictures of his body spread across the United States. The tone in Mississippi, newspapers changed dramatically. They falsely reported riots in the funeral home in Chicago. Rumors of an invasion of outraged blacks and northern whites were printed throughout the state. Brenton milem appeared in photos, wearing their military uniforms, smiling and Carolyn Bryant's beauty and virtue were extolled. On September Third Tallahassee Sheriff Clarence Strider, who had initially positively identified Emmett till's body, and stated that the case against Milam and Bryant was pretty good, suddenly announced that he had doubts that the body pulled from the Tallahassee River was not of Emmett till. He now speculated that the boy was probably still alive. And suggested that the body had been planted by the N. double ACP. The trial was held in September of Nineteen fifty five and lasted for five days. The courtroom was packed with two hundred eighty spectators. BLACK ATTENDEES SAT in segregated sections including black reporters who were segregated away from the white press. An all white jury were allowed to drink beer on duty and many white male spectators were armed. The defense cast doubt on the identity of the body pulled from the river. They questioned whether Emmett. Till was dead at all. A doctor from Greenwood testified for the defense that the body was too decomposed to identify, and therefore had been in the water too long for to be Emmett till. Sheriff strider testified for the defense. His theory that Emmett was still alive and that the body retrieved from the river. Was White. George Curtis wingo allowed Carolyn Bryant to testify. But not in front of the jury after the prosecution objected, but her testimony was irrelevant to tilt abduction and murder. On the stand she claimed that he had grabbed her and verbally threatened her. She said that while she was unable to utter the unprintable word he had used. He said he had done something with white women before. Then, she added. I was just scared to death. EMMETT's mother. Mamie testified the. She had instructed her son to watch his manners in Mississippi. And that should a situation ever come to his being asked to get on his knees, and to ask forgiveness of a white person. He should do it without a thought. The defense questioned her identification of her son in the casket and Chicago. And a four hundred dollar life insurance policy that she had taken out on him. Emmett's Uncle Moses identified Brian Milam and court as the ones who came into his home and took Emmett that night. An eyewitness Willie Reed. Testified in court that he saw Emmett in the back of Bryant and limbs pickup truck. And that he had heard Emmett.

"Today's episode gives brief. Put graphic details about the murder of Emmett till listener discretion is advised. Emmett till was just fourteen years old in the summer of nineteen fifty five when he traveled to visit family in the small community of money in the Mississippi Delta till was born and raised in a suburb of Chicago. He had never been to the deep south. The tragic story of young till's murder at the hands of white men because he was black became too many a catalyst for the American Civil Rights Movement but historian did not end in Mississippi. It never really ended. We spoke with Florida State University. Professor Davis Hawk. Who helped create the Emmett till memory project and has been instrumental in building? Fsu'S EMMETT till Archive. He said I'd like to think that if we had the trial again that number one would have some black jurors and some women that in fact justice would be done. That's the optimist in me but I don't want to be too optimistic because we're at a time in our country right now where anything goes in terms of violence visited upon young black boys for whistling at a white woman. Yeah I think we're pretty far down the road from that but I don't want to say we've arrived at some ideal place. We haven't a murder of Emmett till could have been lost a time. Just another of thousands of lynchings were perpetuated all over the United States. After the civil war the equal justice initiative has documented more than four thousand four hundred lynchings in twenty states between eighteen. Seventy seven and nineteen fifty. Till's murder stands out separately from those though not because of its sheer violence. Lynchings were by definition brutal but because the particular inhumanity brought upon him was not automatically relegated to the inside pages of newspapers as many others had been even in Mississippi shortly after his death. News accounts almost immediately condemned the teens martyr. The governor of the state at the time Governor Hugh White even spoke out against it still it was not until till's mother Mamie till mobely then Mamie till Bradley demanded that her son be returned to Chicago for burial that the entire world took notice because she held an open casket funeral to show what had happened to him. He was beaten shot a hat a seventy five pound fan tied to his neck with barbed wire and was then tossed into the Tallahassee River where he was found several days later. Bradley told Documentarian. Keith Buchanan years. Later in retelling the story of the day she saw her son's body returned from Mississippi. Oh yes we're going to open the casket let the people see what I see. I want the world to see this more than one. Hundred thousand people attended till's funeral jet magazine published graphic photos including one depicting. Bradley standing above the coffin containing her battered son's body and the outrage grew outer when the two men accused of the murder. Roy Bryant and J W Milam were acquitted by an all white jury weeks later anyone looking. For further reason to put an end to lynching demand racial justice had a rallying point. What prompted till's kidnapping and murder is still debated and in reality is beside the point. The jurors were told by Brian's wife Caroline the 'til had whistled at her come into the Bryant. Family store grabbed her by the wrist but his hands on her waist and bragged about being with white women. But it wasn't true. She recanted that story. Years later what she told author Timothy Tyson for his twenty seventeen book the blood of Emmett till strikes at the very truth of that night. She said nothing. That boy did could ever justify what happened to him. Still the original retelling the encounter between fourteen year old till twenty one year old Carolyn. Bryant has had remarkable staying power. Despite the fact that it's been disavowed by its creator. A nineteen fifty six look magazine article. By William Bradford Huey containing a confession from the murderers that look paid them to give was purported to tell the true account of the murder. How said that so called confession continues in some to function as a history of what happened to Emmett till that night. What the article has done what I see is it divides Mississippi along black and white lines. Oh Emmett till was kind of this borderline rapist. Man Child who had coming to him. You will hear that in polite company in Mississippi to the Present Day till story had an immediate and profound effect on Americans at the time both black and white largely because of his mother's bold decision to display his body and jets decision among others including the Chicago defender to publish the pictures former politician and activist Julian bond. Who died in two thousand fifteen wrote a forward to Devry as Anderson's indispensable look at the events? Emmett till the murder that shocked the world and propelled at the civil rights movement in it. He wrote the till story was touchstone narrative of my generation among many southern horror stories. This was among the most morbid. The till death picture was proof of white southerners malevolence. Their refusal to acknowledge the killer's guilt was proof of their acceptance of evil. 'til story was recounted through the nineteen sixties. Civil Rights Act became law. It still widely cited by activists from bond to Rosa Parks and beyond and the story of what happened in. Mississippi August of nineteen fifty-five may not be finished either till's body was exumed positively identified as part of a two thousand and four department of Justice reopening of the case which resulted in no new charges a Mississippi grand jury in two thousand seven found. No evidence suggested by Documentarian. Buke camp that as many as fourteen people may have taken part in his kidnapping and murder in two thousand eighteen. The Department of Justice again opened up an investigation. It's evidently still pending. Many articles. Books documentaries have been produced on the story. There's now an Emmett till Interpretive Center in Sumner Mississippi. A few other museums are in the works. The State of Mississippi has several road signs that detail places in the Emmett till story. Though many of the signs continue to be shocked and otherwise vandalized the National Memorial for Peace and justice dedicated to block people terrorized by lynching opened in two thousand eighteen. Not far from the Legacy Museum. From sleeve length to mass incarceration both are projects of equal justice initiative and finally on February Twenty Sixth of two thousand twenty the United States House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the Emmett till Anti Lynching. Act Four hundred ten to four to make lynching a federal hate crime. This comes after lawmakers have tried and failed more than two hundred times. The bill still needs to be passed in the US Senate and signed by the President to become law.

"Hey history lovers. I'm Mike Rosen walled with retro pod a show about the past rediscovered Emmett till his tragic murder in one thousand nine hundred fifty five is a monumental moment in civil rights history. The African American teenager was tortured tortured shot wrapped in barbed wire and tossed in a river by white men revenge for what till had allegedly whistled at a white woman in a grocery store when till's mother Mamie Elizabeth till mobely viewed his lifeless body swollen beyond recognition his teeth missing and I hanging out the only thing she could use to positively identify him was a ring he was wearing Lord. Take my soul. She cried according to a two thousand three interview with The Washington Post in her grief and outrage. Till's mother wanted the world to see the barbaric act committed against her son. She called the Chicago defender under one of the country's leading black newspapers she called Ebony and jet magazines too and she invited them to his funeral on the south outside of Chicago then. Maybe did something that would change history. She asked for an open casket skit at his funeral. I think everybody needed to know what happened to Emmett till his mother said according to PBS fifty thousand people attended the funeral in saw till's body the evidence of a vicious and hateful attack though open open caskets were an African American tradition. Till's body presented challenges not just in how he appeared but also and this is hard to say how badly it smelled. Simeon Wright till's cousin told Smithsonian magazine that the funeral home scrambled for a solution finally settling on the extraordinary step of putting glass over the casket to contain the odor otherwise right said no no one would have believed what till endured the result was profound the emotional photos from the funeral showed Mamie as she approached her son's casket. Her body seemed to buckle. Photographers captured her leaning over the casket to which photos of the smiling boy had been taped inside inside the litter. The funeral gave the nation in image. It hadn't yet seen what a lynching really looked like the brutality the anguish the sheer sense of wrong in this Massoni interview right said the photos led to renewed vigor in the fight against racist and a few months later a woman named Rosa Parks refused to give her seat on the white section of a bus prompting a year long bus boycott in Alabama led by an up and coming leader in the civil rights movement and the Reverend Martin Luther King Junior King may till's murder a centerpiece of his sermons and speeches the crying voice of Little Emmett till he'd say screaming from the rushing waters the evil of racial injustice the justice.

"You mentioned that the moment till was taken by these men that that everyone knew what grave danger he was in and in fact of course the reason they knew was that the possibly violence like this was not uncommon. Many many african american men had been murdered by white supremacists before but what what about murder push civil rights leaders to act whether it was a couple of things <hes> i think one is you know him. It was a child who's fourteen <hes> perhaps more importantly he he was from chicago and his mother had friends and family who were pretty well connected with the a._c._p. In chicago and it immediately it became a story in the chicago. Defender probably the nation's largest black newspaper and so the story unlike a lot of <hes> young mississippi black men who mysteriously go missing <hes> this one didn't happen quite that way because it was not a mississippi boy he was from chicago and his mom immediately <hes> <hes> activated her network of people and people began writing about this case so it went from a and you can see it happened in the mississippi press it goes from being this very local story <hes> told him the greenwood commonwealth and other newspapers to quite literally exploding within a week after his body is discovered one of the trip wires <hes> to make the story a national one occurred on september first so literally the day after the body is discovered roy wilkins. Who's the head of the end of lacey eighteen nationally comes out and all but accuses every mississippi in a being a child killer and just very inflammatory statement and he should in hindsight he shouldn't have set and of course the the white mississippi press took wilkins's comments and ran with them and in that case you you can see a pivot almost overnight in terms of how the press treated this case especially in mississippi. It went from being a case about. Can you believe what these two white men did too much more of a national focus us and let's watch and see how northern black people are coming to attack southern white people so it becomes this big big case about about race immediately and roy wilkins really was one of the people who ignited that case so emmett till's murder was the moment when the civil rights movement became the movement. We we know it gained its momentum. Why is that so. There's a couple of explanations for listen. They're really really interesting lindsay. The first is <hes> so the keep in mind when the until cases happening in august and september in november of nineteen fifty five on december first a seamstress over in montgomery alabama refuses to give up her bus seat in we know her of course as rosa parks and rosa parks many many years later not in nineteen fifty five and not a nineteen sixty five but really end of the nineteen nineties she came out very publicly and said when i stayed seated on a montgomery bus i was thinking of emmett till and so what this did immediately really was drew a pretty direct line from emmett till's kidnap and murder and the injustice from it directly to her act of resistance and we know from her active resistance we can draw a straight line to the montgomery boycott bus boycott and a really direct line for at that point to dr martin luther king and so you see what's happening here. We're we're we're were stitching together. Civil rights history were going directly from money mississippi to montgomery and the rise of dr king and so that's a that's a very powerful <hes> and compelling case that a lot of people are making about amatil being the catalyst for the movement. I would argue. There's two other things going on here that don't get a lot of airtime needs more airtime but in one thousand nine hundred sixty in february of nineteen sixty in greensboro north carolina we know that four freshman from north carolina a and t sat in at a woolworth's counter her <hes> and were arrested and shortly thereafter this movement of eighteen and nineteen and twenty year old black college kids across the deep south it just happened and overnight it it it was <hes> it was on college campuses and communities all over the deep south of the sit in movement and what we tend to forget add about this generation of eighteen and nineteen and.

The person person says yes that's him. Is that carolyn bryant. That's the speculation because she could i._d. The boy she could i._d. She could identify amit and off. They went back towards money with the lights off and that's the last point at which moses right saw his great nephew what's interesting to me is a historian orient the case because we really just don't know i don't know that we ever will know this was about two thirty in the morning on sunday august twenty eighth the next i witnessed that we we have seen the men and emmett till is about six or six thirty in the morning forty miles away just outside the town of drew mississippi and we know this is good testimony tony because willie reed actually testified at the trial and would testify to his dying day that he had seen until on the back of a pickup truck with with two or three black men holding him in the back of this pickup truck <hes> several whiteman driving the pickup truck including j w mile roy bryant and they were going to they stirred up on the the plantation was called a stir on plantation owned by the sturt avante family and the reason they were out there was because they had a half brother by the name of leslie milem silom who managed that plantation and so they clearly wanted to beat and torture and eventually kill emmett till away from a crowd they didn't they didn't want to draw attention attention to themselves and willie reed just happened to be walking down the street that early that sunday morning <hes> when he saw this green and white chevy pickup truck with emmett till on the back of it and later he heard the beating the beating happened in a in a small seed barn on this plantation and he told some other people about it 'cause they a several people heard this awful beating happening in the shed later he saw a pickup truck back up to the shed in probably at that point put in emmett's body over tarp and this is probably about seven o'clock so the sun is up <hes> and they got to do something with this body and so again for me as a historian. I'm interested in okay from to thirty the time they took. 'em it for money until about six or six thirty up near drew what was happening in those three or four hours what was going on and the best we can guess is is that milem and bryant were getting together their people they were going to make something of an event of this and it took a while for that to unfold <hes> <hes> pre cell phone pre anything bryant's had a phone in the store so <hes> but it's it's one of the mystery still that we just don't know and and the awful fool terror that emmett no doubt experienced in those four hours 'cause <hes> he probably knew at that point that his life was engraved dangerous american history tellers sponsored by quip summer's over the vacation's done.

You were i interested in the story of emmett till when you're undergraduate and you've spent a fair portion of your career career on it. It is obviously important story in a turning point in the civil rights movement but why is it important for you. Why have you dedicated so much of your time and career to to it.
