Emett had said that he had dated a white girl before so his cosin dared him to ask the cashier on a date.
Hey Emmett, I dare you to go in there and ask that white chick out on a date
Hi my Emmett Till, I could not help but seeing you there. I was wondering if you wanted to go on a date with me sometime.
The cashier had a husband but did not tell Emmett. She hoped that her husband did not know.
Word got out that a black boy asked a white female cashier on a date, Four days late Emmett Till was kidnapped by the cashier's husband and his half-brother. They had shot him in the head and tied him to a cotton machine and drowned him.
