Oprah - Trayvon Martin just like Emmett Till

Trying to make sense of where the Hollywood left is going to go with Trayvon Martin is devolving into the absurd. The State Run Media along with lefties in Tinseltown are creating a cult hero out of Trayvon Martin that simply does not exist.  Media mogul and billionaire, Oprah Winfrey said about a week ago that Trayvon Martin was the "same thing as Emmett Till" and on her appearance in an interview with Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday, she once again said that, “Trayvon Martin is the Emmett Till of our era.”

Well no Oprah, Emmett Till is not quite the same thing as Trayvon Martin, not even close. Emmett Till was 14 years old and was dragged from his home in the middle of the night by either 3 white men or 2 white men and 1 black man and taken to a barn and brutally beaten till he died. His face was so horribly mangled that he could not even be recognized. Emmett's so-called "crime" was "flirting" with a white woman. Trayvon Martin however, attacked George Zimmerman while Zimmerman was walking back to his car as the 911 audio tape shows and Zimmerman shot him in self defense as Martin was beating his head into the concrete sidewalk.

So tell us again Oprah, exactly how is there even a modicum of similarity between self defense and brutal murder?

While promoting her upcoming movie about a longtime black employee of the White House, The Butler, Oprah Winfrey said an interview that the death of Trayvon Martin was the “same thing” as the lynching of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African-American boy killed in 1955 for allegedly flirting with a white woman. “Trayvon Martin — parallel to Emmett Till,” she said.

“Let me just tell you — in my mind, same thing,” she said in a preview of an interview with The Grio, an NBC News website.

She went on to urge black Americans to not “get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and see how far we’ve come.”

When promoting the movie in another interview last week, in a discussion of racial slurs and young Americans’ ignorance of civil-rights history, Oprah alluded to “millions of” lynching victims who were called such words shortly before their deaths.
