WATCH: Rosa Parks’ Niece Slams Comparisons of United Passenger To ‘Civil Rights Pioneer’ Aunt


One late civil rights pioneer will always be remembered for her decision of refusing to give up her seat on an Alabama bus which lead to the Montgomery boycott.

The lawyer for Dr. David Dao, the passenger who was forcibly removed from United flight 3411, compared his client’s incident to that of Rosa Parks and that has certainly raised some eyebrows. Particularly, those of Rosa Parks’ niece, Urana McCauley, according to TMZ.

In an interview with TMZ, McCauley told the media source that “what happened to Dao on the United flight is wrong and unfortunate, but it’s by no means even remotely close to what my aunt endured as a civil rights pioneer.”
