Yesterday was the 60th anniversary of the death of Emmit Till.  Emmit Till was murdered by two white men for allegedly whistling at a white woman.  Nothing was ever done as the men who did it were never convicted of the crime.  This was 1955.  Fast-forward 60 years later and what has really changed?  Black men and women have been getting  killed and nothing has been done . Racism has always been a issue in America.  Whether it be discrimination, prejudice, appropriation, so on and so forth.  We as a nation have a long way to go before everyone gets true equality.  The list of African Americans who have been killed is endless and it seems as though there is no end in sight.  Unless something is done nothing will change.  As a black man I am tired of waking up and seeing another hashtag of someone killed.  I’m tired of worrying about my family when they leave the house.  I’m tired of people being killed and no justice being served.  People must not be afraid to have conversations about race.  African Americans have negative connotations that we are more violent , lazy, and thiefs. Until people have conversations and we all come together as a nation nothing will be done.  With no conversations misconceptions will be made.  It’s 2015 it’s time.
