It never ceases to amaze me how racist some people can be while claiming they are not racist. Oprah Winfrey is a prime example of someone who is clearly racist but doesn’t acknowledge it.
In an interview with the BBC, as she was advertising her film, The Butler, Oprah was asked a question about President Obama not receiving proper respect because he is black, I mean African-American (and for President Obama, he actually might be an African-American). Oprah responded that she thought very clearly that President Obama is being judged and disrespected because of the color of his skin. She goes on to say:
Of course the problem is not solved, as long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, the problem is not solved. As long as there are people who, and there’s a whole generation of people, and I say this for, you know, for Apartheid in South Africa, I say this for my own community in the South, there are still generations of people, older people, who were born, bred, and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.
If you don’t believe me that this kind, tolerant, loving liberal passed such a sweeping judgment on an entire people group from the South, then here is the video footage for you to watch her say it for all of England to hear:
My grandparents who currently reside in East TN and were born and raised in North Carolina fit into this geographic people group that needs to die. She blatantly lumps all of them from a certain era, geography, and I’d even say ethnicity (white skinned) into a single pool that needs to ALL DIE to solve the problem of racism.
Oprah however fails to see that she is part of the problem. She says that racism will not die until people who judge others by the color of their skin all die, but she has passed a harsh judgment upon an entire people group based on the color of people’s skin and geography.
We must all confront such self-contradictory, liberal nonsense if we hope to have a world of tolerance and a society that values truth and life, because you know what, just for writing these words, Oprah probably thinks I need to die too, and likely thinks everyone who posted the following related articles also needs to die.
