Oprah Winfrey Campaigns For Stacey Abrams: You Are "Dishonoring" Your Family If You Don't Vote


Oprah Winfrey campaigned Thursday morning for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams. Oprah told black voters they are dishonoring and disrespecting their family's legacy if they do not exercise their right to vote at a campaign rally in Marietta.

OPRAH WINFREY: All of us may have been created equal, but if you're woke, if you're woke just a little bit you have the sense to know that everybody is not treated equally. The reality is we see injustices big and small all around us every single day of our lives...

Every single one of us, every single one of us has the same power at the polls. And every single one of us has something that if done in numbers too big to tamper with cannot be suppressed and cannot be denied. As our civil rights predecessors used to say, 'We shall not be moved.' ...

For anybody here who had an ancestor who did not have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family. You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering, and their dreams when you don't vote. Honor your legacy. Honor your right to citizenship in this in which is the greatest country in the world.
