Dyson: Cindy Hyde-Smith is ‘Racist,’ ‘White Supremacist’

Tuesday on MSNBC’s Live, Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson called Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith a “racist” and “white supremacist.”

Speaking on the controversy of Hyde-Smith’s recent comment about a public hanging, Dyson said, “In Mississippi, with the history, the ghost of Mississippi, the blood of Mississippi from its rivers where Emmett Till died, where Medgar Evers died, where those three civil rights workers, two Jews and a black person died, we have to come to grips with it in 2018, and the only way to do that is to take a harder look at what we’ve been able to do and not able to do, and then you know, roll up our sleeves, so to speak, and work together.

“Cindy Hyde-Smith is a racist, a white nationalist, a white supremacist,” he continued.
