Emmett Till’s family has sent a letter to Lil Wayne over his “beat up the pu**y like Emmett Till” line from rapper Future’s "Karate Chop" remix.

Future’s label, Epic Records has censored the song and released an apology but Wayne has not.

A quote from Emmett’s family reads:

"Drafting this letter is very difficult because Emmett Till was not just a "sacrificial lamb" for the movement, he was our blood. There was a before image of our beloved "BoBo" that represented the fun-loving, bubbly playful child and member of our family before there was the iconic image of his disfigured face symbolizing as described by his mother as the "face of racism". [sic] He was more than a name that went down in history. HE WAS MAMIE TILL MOBLEY'S ONLY CHILD!"

Here is the letter:
