Media mogul Oprah Winfrey returned to her alma mater on Saturday to deliver fiery, woke commencement remarks to Tennessee State University.
Winfrey lamented to the audience that “you are the generation that is forced to depend on body cams to obtain justice;” that they have witnessed “the death of civility;” that “history is being rewritten;” and that “children are being gunned down by military-grade assault rifles.”
She said: “The Supreme Court is being corrupted. The debt ceiling is being held hostage. The climate is changing. The LGBT+ community is under attack. The Cold War is back. The leaders are behaving like children. The children are being gunned down by military-grade assault rifles. We live on a planet where there is more than enough wrong to keep you busy trying to make things right for the rest of your natural life.”
