Of course, the two cases bear no resemblance at so many levels.

But Oprah can’t help herself, and debases the memory of Emmett Till by comparing Till’s whistling at a white woman and subsequent beating death to the violence perpetrated by Trayvon Martin upon George Zimmerman who acted in legally justifiable self defense.

Oprah thinks she’s being profound, but in fact she’s just showing her ignorance.
