    Twenty years ago, filmmaker John Waters showed up on Fox’s animated sitcom and kick-started a gay revolution on TV. John Waters had no idea.

    The woman whose accusation led to Emmett Till's murder has now made a horrifying admission

    The murder of Emmett Till is one of the most brutal and horrific examples of what racism in America really looks like. In 1955, 14-year-old Chicago-native Till, who was visiting family in Money, Mississippi, was murdered in an appallingly barbaric manner by Roy Bryant and his brother-in-law J.W.
