While peddling her turgid film 'The Butler' overseas, Oprah Winfrey found some time to trash her country collectively and accuse her fellow Americans who have rewarded her so lavishly of racism:
Oprah Winfrey has been a prominent supporter of Barack Obama. She thinks that both he and the Office of President have been treated with contempt because of the colour of his skin.
“There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.
Of course we are. That's why her success is due to an all black audience, and only black people voted for Obama, right? And Ms. Winfrey apparently has added mind reading to her abilities. She can detect racism in a glance, a sneeze, or the blink of an eyelid at far beyond normal human perceptions. Disagreement with President Obama because of his policies and lack of character?
N O T A L L O W E D.
Of course, the sort of things that were said by many blacks about Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush were perfectly okay. That could never be considered racism, It was, you know acceptable.
Unfortunately, this despicable kind of attitude infects far too many people.It's a form of mental illness as far as I'm concerned, and a de facto admission of Oprah's own inherent racism.
