Oprah and Beyonce Are Wrong: Trayvon Martin is Not Emmett Till

On Monday's Today Show, Oprah Winfrey said that the killing of Trayvon Martin in 2012 was the "same thing" as the killing of Emmett Till in 1955. Winfrey is not the first to equate the two: Beyonce recently suggested much the same, saying we should "fight for Trayvon the same way the generation before us fought for Emmett Till."
