ATR: This is nothing.

I have driven from Dallas to the East Coast a number of times over the past 20 years.

I usually take the Interstate 30 route from Dallas to Little Rock, Arkansas.

This route goes by Hope, Arkansas, the childhood home of Bill Clinton.

The Interstate 30 highway sign announcing this fact is riddled with bullet holes.

The sign gets replaced (frequently?) but still gets riddled with bullets.

So, why the story about Till?

N.S.: Easy. The lynching of Emmett Till was the most significant incident in American history, and the most characteristic of the profound, metaphysical evil of whiteness. Therefore, Till's legacy must be made bullet-proof.
