Till was from Illinois. Obviously I wouldn't justify a murder, but it's interesting to note, that at the time, it was common knowledge that the northern blacks would display a self sureness that was not welcomed in the South. There's an old saying, Southerners don't mind living next to blacks as long as they don't act uppity, Northerners don't mind uppity blacks as long as they don't have to live with them.
