    Reading this article made me rethink on our society and made me feel disgusted racism still happens today noticing that too little has changed from the 50s and 60s. hoping this stuff will soon end in the future

    Trays- that video you added is powerful. The truth will set us all free and even though the American justice system is far from perfect the trial brought to light the real racism that existed in the American south. In the face of tragedy, violence, injustice, ugly racism, the dark side of human nature…we shall overcome not with more violence, hatred and ignorance but with the light of truth and the hope of progress for our children. In order to move on from an ugly crime such as this the human spirit needs mercy and forgiveness and a faith in the better part of human nature. We are both wounded in our division and capable of great healing through common ideals as a people- may we always move towards the direction of forming a more perfect union.

    This was a terrific essay on the simeon story. Wow reading this made me think of how society today and in the 1950s and 1960’s has changed but in some ways stayed the same. To this day there is still racism, but its not as bad as the case of Emmett Till.

    I’ve Attached a video below you could take a look at.
