WTF du Jour

Woman who pretty much got Emmett Till killed may have been lying:
Lastly, every single historical account of Emmett Till’s life and death needs to be revised. As of this writing, virtually every online record of his death, from his Wikipedia page on down, includes exhaustive lies about what people claimed he said and did to this woman. At this moment, Wikipedia, for instance, contains several paragraphs about the accusations of what he did. They came almost exclusively from Bryant and her family. While many of his own friends have long since said those things were not true, now that Carolyn Bryant herself has said they weren’t true, it is essential that this nation does the hard work of correcting every single account to remove this lie from being a part of his history.
But hey, whaddya gonna do? #whitepeoplesuck
