Civil Rights Leader Attacks Oprah Over 'Ignorant' Comments on Trayvon, Emmett Till

NY Civil Rights Coalition's Michael Meyers calls Oprah's comments 'racially offensive'

Hannity and Guests Savage Oprah’s Trayvon Comments: ‘Idiocy,’ She Knows ‘Diddly-Squat’ About Civil Rights! (Mediaite)

Oprah Winfrey got in some hot water this week after commenting that the Trayvon Martin case is the “same” as Emmett Till‘s. Sean Hannity found this shocking coming from Oprah, while guests Michael Meyers and Deroy Murdock mercilessly tore her apart for her “idiocy” and just jumping on the media bandwagon.

Murdock shot back against the Till analogy by saying George Zimmerman is clearly not on par with “homicidal white racists,” while Meyers bemoaned how Oprah used to be a “bridge over troubled water,” but now she’s jumped into the deep end with her “idiocy and racial poison.”

Meyers continued, calling her a “hypocrite,” and charging, “You know diddly-squat about the civil rights movement!”
