How dare you compare the atrocity of Emmett Till to the anatomy of a woman!!!! Rappers Future and Lil Wayne's release of the “Karate Chop” remix scheduled to appear on DJ Smallz’s This Is That Southern Smoke Vol. 4 which drops during All Star Weekend, includes the egregious lyrics...”Beat that p-ssy up like Emmett Till".

Your metaphoric indiscretion is not only offensive to my family but our ancestors and to YOURSELVES as black men. How can you compare the gateway of LIFE to the brutality and punishment of DEATH? Have you no pride and dignity as black men? You are diminishing your own existence in a society controlled by a system that criminalizes you at every opportunity.

The name Emmett Till has resonated over 57 years in effort to educate, in tributes to his life, to demonstrate the existence of modern hate crimes, and to continue the legacy of our rich cultural history. Numerous ballads and songs honor his memory and what he endured at a tender age of 14 during a time when black people weren't considered humans.

It is disappointing, dishonorable, and outright disrespectul to our family. The name Emmett Till represents the eruption of a great movement in our hearts as black people and in our country. Out of respect to our family please remove that portion of your lyrics. His mother Mamie Till Mobley is doing cartwheels in her tomb!!!!!!
