Mississippi Burning

Mississippi Burning

Season 02 : The Deep South
Episode 12 : Mississippi Burning : Neshoba County, MS

Rights are something that everybody deserves. No matter who you are or what color your skin is, you should have the same rights as the people around you. In times when that isn’t the case, you may want to fight to help the marginalized gain their rights, even if you yourself are part of the group that already has them. Using your privilege to help lift up those who are struggling is always a worthy cause and something can generally be looked upon with admiration. Sometimes though, the fight for change can bring deadly opponents.

    My Great Uncle is Edgar Killen. He was not raised to be involved with the KKK. Grandma Killen was a share cropper and worked and ate alongside the other black share croppers. Edgar β€œThe Preacher” was the only one of those monsters that served in prison. The killers never were charged with those 3 murders. Edgar gathered up the KKK and dipped out to perform a funeral during the torture and murders. The local business men and Police Dept. from Union and Philadelphia never were fully charged. 😒😒

    History is repeating itself, Look, we’re all human, and I think the worst thing wwe can do is to treat others as less thn ourselves. I’m not saying we should like everyone. There are people I don’t respect, and there are people I hate. None of it has to do with petty stuff, like race, gender, or alternate lifestyles.I hate ordisrespect others becauseof their actions.

    "Forget what our ancestors did to your ancestors" white people say. "it’s in the past" white people say.

    Thank you!

    The color of ones skin ismt a privilage, its whovwe are, its something that just is.
    Most white people dont judge skin color, they judge behavior. Nobody wants to deal with an adult whos disrespectful, causes trouble, puts people down because of skin color 🀨, or any other negative behavior/attitude, doesnt matter what race they are.
    Thats sonething that needs to be kept in mind the next time people start calling white people racist.
    Every black person calls whites a cracker, how often do you hear whites calling them a n!gger?

    How can humans be so cruel to our fellow man? My heart breaks to think of a heart that holds no compassion.

    I consider everyone a brother and sister no matter the race. Through our Father in heaven we all are brothers and sisters and we should be there for each other. That’s what God intended and we should be there for each other.

    I often feel helpless when it comes to seeing people having to deal with racism. The way I have tried to be a ally is to make sure my children are raised to despise racism. To treat everyone with respect and dignity. To expose them to people different then themselves. To experience other cultures and discover how amazing that can be. That’s how I help with something I wish I could stop people from having to experience.

  20. @valerieabney7966 on January 12, 2024 at 8:54 am

    I guarantee that sheriff had his hands in on that murder, of those 3 civil rights activists. That’s such a shame that people, no monsters, would kill people just because they were fighting in something they believed in. And, the man they called the grand imperial wizard?! Are you kidding me????? Oh brother! Maybe they needed to be in the land of Oz!!! πŸ˜… How f***ing stupid!!!!!!

    Thank you for telling our true history.
    It’s been whitewashed into non existence.

  24. @9906652 on January 12, 2024 at 9:07 am

    My mom was born in 37 and was Price before marrying my dad who was born in 34. The stories they had was so different. My dad anwsered white men yes sar. My mom hated he did that especially to much younger men and we were in the 90s. The reason the 90s is important is because she put us all on a mission to correct him when he did so. It worked. My dad was a proud man so it want that hard when mom sat him done and used the fact that he owned his home and acres of land. It wasnt easy growing up in the 70s and im the youngest. There’s no way to explain it all without writing a paragraph. So i won’t . I’ll just say it was hard ltf. Its hard now. Harder then but thinking its 2023 it should be easy…. I’m screaming to you, its still hard. 😒ltf😒

  25. @pikeman80 on January 12, 2024 at 9:07 am

    Not surprising to see a cop doing that. They have done objectionable things for a long time as their narcissism means everybody should act exactly the way they want them to
    Old Jolly Farm? Doesn’t seem like an appropriately named place to bury people.

  26. @wazzazone on January 12, 2024 at 9:08 am

    Thank you SO MUCH Jiles for your honesty, not being an American I find the use of Asian-American, African-American an other such terms as racial intolerance for anyone, and it doesn’t appear to be getting better.

  27. @courtneylane9576 on January 12, 2024 at 9:08 am

    Not me sitting here in Northern MS at this very moment 😒

  28. @savagetwin52 on January 12, 2024 at 9:09 am

    I still remember when these murders happened. It was frightening to black child born and raised in Harlem. How could such crimes keep going unpunished I thought. Such evil. And I tell you that although Trump has given rise to attempts to go back to these days……it will NEVER happen. How courageous were all three to risk their lives and eventually lose them for so many others. Goodman and Schwerner really could have not even gotten involved with the Movement. All three were what MLK, Jr called "Ultimate Measure of a Man". I also call them heroes.
    I lived in New York and Goodman and Schwerner were from NYC. There was such a sense of overwhelming sadness in the black community. I can tell you that they were all given great honor. Lastly, the GEN-Z’s of today remind me of the babyboomers back then. We were united in a righteous purpose against I justice.

    "Black people hold the same basic human rights as anyone else". Technically but sadly not in actuality.

    This is the best Somewhere Sinister yet. I don’t find train crashes and natural disasters sinister, sad yes, sinister no. This is TRULY sinister.

  32. @mayflowerkid4422 on January 12, 2024 at 9:13 am

    It’s pretty notable that they actually looked into a cop killer in the 1960s when its still overlooked so often.

  34. @frankharper3512 on January 12, 2024 at 9:14 am

    All of this falls upon our own government in the past that let these actions take place just a friendly reminder.

    Mississippi is one of the most racist states in America. My parents grew up there and the stories that were told to me is dreadful and inhumane. Not much has changed in that state. MS is one of the leading states for lynching. Emmitt Till was murdered in that dreadful awful state.

  38. @tkb1tx on January 12, 2024 at 9:20 am

    You’re part of the problem

  39. @valerieabney7966 on January 12, 2024 at 9:21 am

    Every one of those kkk members should have been prosecuted!!! People back then were so stupid!!!! Wonder how the big kkk members would have felt if they were all gathered up and lynched!!! Bet they would have begged and pleaded for their lives then!

  40. @makumaru on January 12, 2024 at 9:21 am

    Loving the privilege of white liberals fighting for black welfare, excusing black crime and failure to integrate. One look at the progressive cities and who does crime there and you are a racist.

  41. @carolinebrennan3864 on January 12, 2024 at 9:22 am

    So sickening. Disgusting and hateful excuses for humans.

    Giles. I recently had our family reunion in Mississippi this past month and only found out about this situation at the Civil Rights Museum. Glad to see you covered this. ❀

  48. @divasmelody on January 12, 2024 at 9:34 am

    I will never understand how bible loving Godly Christians can have so much hate in their hearts and think they can just murder ppl because of the color of their skin. It’s just sad. Their decendants are still carrying on just better at covering it all up.
