Laura A (May 29 2020 11:45PM) : I feel like things have shifted to avoid showing the violence inflicted upon people of color. more

I have seen a lot of commentary on social media about refraining from sharing the video of Floyd’s murder, since it further traumatizes people of color who are repeatedly subjected to the imagery, as well as desensitizing others from the brutality of it. I know a lot of people are against the politicization of his body, which I think is starkly opposed to Emmett Till’s experience — nowadays, with the onset of technology and all of these atrocities documented, it becomes far more frequent to see online and people are becoming numb to it.

Jane H (May 29 2020 11:59PM) : Emmett Till more

I hope we are not numb. It was Emmett Till’s mother who made the decision to open his casket. Watching George Floyd suffer, plead and approach death leaves the agency out of the intent of sharing/watching the video. This leaves us to decide the purpose of the video as evidence, testimony or politicization of his suffering and death.
