DescriptionA fake Oprah Winfrey, Aunt Jemima, a "magical negro," and "Jews who own the media" are featured in a new robocall that is hitting Georgia voters in the final days of the campaign for governor between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp.

The robocall was the work of an Idaho based-group called the Road to Power that has been labeled a white supremacist and anti-Semitic broadcasting outlet. In the robocall, a male voice says: "This is the magical negro, Oprah Winfrey, asking you to make my fellow negress, Stacey Abrams, the governor of Georgia." Audio of the robocall was posted on social media.

The call also refers to Abrams as a "poor man's Aunt Jemima" who "white women can be tricked into voting for, especially the fat ones."
