In the Wake of Bill Cosby Verdict, Will There Finally Be Justice for Emmett Till?

By Duvalier Malone

On the surface, it probably seems that the recent Bill Cosby verdict and the Emmett Till case are not connected. But they are bound by a common thread, which is the justice system of the United States. If our society is finally ready to give justice after decades of the forced silence of victims, then it's time for Carolyn Bryant Donham to face justice for what she did to Emmett Till.

Let me start by saying this is not a defense of Cosby. I repeat, this is not a defense of Cosby. This is simply a critical examination of the facts.

I know many will take offense with what I'm saying. There are going to be a lot of people who scoff at the idea of an 83-year-old facing prison time for a crime that was committed many years ago.

But I wonder how many of those same people celebrated Cosby's conviction, applauding the guilty verdict as they proudly proclaimed that "#TIMESUP"?

Well then, the time is up for Bryant too.
