Oprah: Just Because You’re Not Racist Doesn’t Mean You’re Not a Racist

oprah-butler-premiereOprah Winfrey is a cultural mover and shaker. That much is clear after her historically inaccurate film The Butler, which portrays Ronald Reagan as a doddering racist and ignores the legacy of bigotry of Southern Democrats, finished first last week at the box office. Seventy-two percent of those who went to see the film cited Oprah’s participation as a factor in favor of their buying a ticket. Sadly, Oprah has used that power to push a false racial narrative directly at odds with the racial narrative pushed by The Butler.

First, The Butler’s racial narrative. The movie, as Oprah has said, begins with a lynching in 1926 and ends with President Barack Obama in the White House. The notion is that Obama marks the culmination of a centuries-long movement toward equality for blacks in America, a popular perspective that largely explains Obama’s election in 2008.

Then there’s Oprah’s actual racial narrative. In her view, President Obama remains an exception to a broader racist rule. Trayvon Martin, Oprah says, is just today’s Emmitt Till, murdered in 1955 by the Ku Klux Klan. So what if racism in America is at an all-time low? So what if the vast majority of Americans are not only not racist, but actively anti-racist? That’s not enough for Oprah. “A lot of people think if they think they’re not using the n-word themselves, they physically aren’t using the n-word themselves, and do not harbor ill will towards black people that it’s not racist,” she said in a comment that is as challenged syntactically as it is intellectually.

This is paranoia of the highest sort. And it is absolutely crippling to America’s future. If a huge number of Americans believe that racism that is not present in action nonetheless lurks beneath the surface of our life, waiting to burst forth in a conflagration of hate such as that which allegedly claimed Trayvon, there can be no shared future.

But many on the left, including Oprah, apparently don’t want a shared future. They want emotional blackmail. The corollary to the belief that racism hides in the nooks and crannies of the white personality is the belief that the only way to expunge such racism by embracing the philosophy of people like Oprah. If you see The Butler, you’re buying a racial indulgence; if you vote Obama, you’re buying a racial indulgence. Lee Daniels, director of The Butler, told CBS News that white extras cried during the filming of the movie. Presumably, in his view, that meant they were not racist. But what about all the Americans who will never shed tears over The Butler? How will they demonstrate their non-racism, even if there has never been a shred of evidence that they are in fact racist?

That seems to be the perspective not just of many black Americans like Oprah and Daniels, but the perspective of many in various minority communities. For example, in California, Governor Jerry Brown recently signed a law declaring that transgender children must be allowed to enter bathrooms of their choice and join sports teams of their choice. The idea here is that this will minimize bullying, as though most Americans bear children with gender identity issues some sort of ill will. The truth is far simpler: Americans have a right to worry that their children will feel uncomfortable in a bathroom next to someone of the opposite sex, no matter what that person believes him or herself to be. That’s not wrong. That’s normal. But the onus has now been placed on children without gender identity issues to explain why they feel uncomfortable at the urinal next to a girl, even if they’ve never bullied a transgender child.

That’s nasty. More than that, it’s an attempt to shape values by implying that everyone is in need of having their fundamental racism, sexism, homophobia overcome by government action.  Americans have nothing left to discuss. America is now a country where whites are often perceived as racist until proven innocent. And the only way to prove yourself innocent is to perform acts approved by the leftist establishment.

None of this helps black Americans. All it does is perpetuate power for those who divide us in pursuit of political gain. Hillary Clinton, who has begun touring the country invoking the supposed racism of voter ID supporters, is merely the latest race hustler to attempt this pernicious trick. Unfortunately, it seems to work. And that means that Oprah’s racial narrative is far more influential than The Butler’s.

    Yawn. The Butler is an excellent film and it doesn’t portray Reagan as a racist. Just the opposite, it shows Reagan as the first president to get equal pay for the black help at the white house and Nancy Reagan inviting the black butler and his black wife (played BRILLIANTLY by Oprah) to a white house dinner.

    And Oprah’s comment about racism is insightful as usual. Just because you don’t use the N word or feel racial hatred does not mean you’re not a racist. You can love blacks and still not appreciate their full humanity.

    • Russ

      Just like she thinks she loves whites, but uses them for her financial gain while spewing hate against them. Yep, we got it!.

      • Kosh

        That is the way to go right. Not like you didn’t steal from anybody is it whitey?

        • southwood

          An’ not like you don’ spew hate against whitey, eh bro’ ?

        • Drakken

          We whites built civilization and didn’t steal jack, so yeah we got it kaffir, you blame whitey for everything, how novel.

    • CowboyUp

      No doubt if she just picked her nose, you’d say it was “played BRILLIANTLY by Oprah.” After comparing martin to Emmet Till, and her knee jerk assumption that her recent Euro experience was because of the color of her skin, it’s obvious her latest epiphany is projection.

    • iluvisrael

      You picked a fitting screen name – you are pretty lame.

    • nightspore

      “Trayvon Martin, Oprah says, is just today’s Emmitt Till”

      And for you, that’s “insightful”. Ironically, your views go quite well with your moniker. (Do you realize how ‘insightful’ that is?)

    • ziggy zoggy

      Since when are Blacks anymore important than other people? Leftists don’t appreciate their full humanity. They think Blacks can’t even take care of themselves without preferential treatment and government handouts.

      Oprah is a mediocre actress and a lying racist

  • Russ

    Yep!! Just because opra says she not a racist doesn’t means she’s not a racist bigot who hates white people. She right!

    • Sheik Yerbouti

      She likes greenbacks.

  • seewithyourowneyes

    The modern racial grievance industry is beginning to remind me of the Salem witch trials. Invisible, intangible “spectral evidence” is enough to convict the accused just so long as the accusers are spouting the received politically correct wisdom.

  • NotReallyHedyLamarr

    oprah has all the money and power in the world and still isn’t happy (of course) and has rejected Christianity openly – so of course she’s become a bitter old hag

    • ziggy zoggy

      And she’s really fat.

      • Upaces

          • Dave Davis

            shes black, so shes fugaly

      • WebAntOnYouTube

        She is not that fat.

        • Knerak Sexton

          LOL<fat is fat,,like some one who is just a little bit pregnant

        • Jax

          no shes not “fat” and why is this even being discussed??? Oprah is wrong, racism will never end because people of all colors are SO OBSESSED with what someone looks like on the outside. if they are fat or too skinny what color they are what their religion is.. THAT RIGHT THERE IS THE PROBLEM, people are too judgemental and Quick to label people for what they LOOK like and not what they do!!!!!!!!!!
          to end racism everyone needs to come together to end it, not just one race, and racism isnt the only problem! you can be any color and be a racist. so all you racist people out there, do your thing live your life with hatred, i choose to live a life with love.

These are sheep – you know, who Libertarians like Andrew Napolitano and Alex Jones, speak so woefully about; those who would so intertwine God and State while thumping their chests, shouting “U.S.A! U.S.A!” All while the Bible is invoked by the government to strip your liberties.

      • Jane

        No – I choose my beliefs and you may in turn choose yours however, you have no need to disparage those that believe in Christ.

  • Russ

    She has no creditability on the race issue. She is a hard core bigot and black racist. The problem is she does not think she is one because minorities can’t be racist in her understanding or is that lack of understanding. Racism is really a simple concept to the educated. It is, “One race thinking they are superior to another race”. opra thinks blacks are superior to every other race. She made that clear on one of her shows. The last one I watch and never watched her again.

    • Kosh

      Hogwash! And Hogwash again. If your ancestors actually thought about doing the right thing and not enslaving and whipping people because they are not white, then the situation would be different today. So as I see it, if you and your children are enslaved and whipped and raped etc.. Then perhaps your great great grand children get the right to say what you are saying now.

      • Skeptic7

        My ancestors freed the slaves, and were slaves themselves in Europe – called serfs – unable to leave the land. They were white. Get over yourselves.

        • PAUL WESTON

          Pretty much every race has been guilty of slavery. The Romans enslaved Celts in Britain and made them row their Galleys whilst being whipped. Africans and Arabs all took part in the transatlantic slave trade and indulged in their own personal slave trade as well. Indeed Arab Barbary Coast pirates enslaved over 1 million Brits. Africans and Arabs still practice slavery today. In Britain, Pakistani Muslims are enslaving, raping and torturing native British girls in their thousands. Right now. Today. The only race that stopped slavery was the white race. Bringing up slavery today is simply an anti-white attack on blameless whites. Disgusting and only designed to keep racial tensions alive. Those who do so, like Oprah, are racists.

          Paul Weston. Liberty GB.

          • Russ

            My point exactly! As a Pastor of an African American church I find such “anti-white attack on blameless whites” the work of very disturbed minds.

          • Warren Raymond

            The ‘very disturbed minds’ are winning. White guilt, whatever that is, is bigger than a black hole in the sky.

          • WebAntOnYouTube

            I too find attacks on blameless Whites to be disturbing but I am very disturbed by the negative characterizations of African Americans on this very site. Many posting here have racial issues.

        • WebAntOnYouTube

          Why do people like you always assume that people like me don’t know their own people’s history? I’ve known for a LONG time that Africans sold Africans to Americans but that by no means exonerates the Americans who bought & mistreated slaves. Not by a long shot.

          • Russ

            No one said it did! The argument was that all people were enslaved at one point or another in history. The African-Americans don't have an exclusive ownership on slavery.

      • ParkerShannon

        Unbelievably ignorant post.

        This fool doesn’t see his own broad-brush bigotry.

      • tagalog

        My ancestors never enslaved anybody. They were farmers and they ran family farms for centuries in England, Scotland, and in New England and New York. They didn’t have slaves and no one they knew had slaves, either. Some of my ancestors fought in the Civil War and helped put an end to slavery. My family are nearly 100% Republicans to this day because of that.

        So take that institutional racism trope, put it in your pipe, and smoke it. A hell of a lot of white Americans are NOT racist. Repeat, NOT racist. I say again, NOT racist.

      • iluvisrael

        Speak for yourself ignoramus. My ancestors were slaves a few millenia before blacks were. If you had more brain cells or intellectual honesty, you’d know that the USA is unique in ending slavery. I guess your panties are all in a bunch over the slavery that still exists in many moslem countries, but dolts like you are usually hypocrites too.

        • tagalog

          Yeah, and if you’re Jewish, your ancestral slavery counts for NOTHING with black people. They only recognize black slavery as a bad thing, and even then, only black slavery as practiced by white people in the United States. For that, we non-blacks must pay, even to the seventh generation (counting a generation as 20 years, we’re very close to the end of the seventh generation).

          • WebAntOnYouTube

            I find that to be a very prejudiced thing you just said. Many Blacks grow up in church being taught about the enslavement of Jews so many of us do know and appreciate that Jews were slaves too. Also, I have NEVER heard a Black person deny the Holocaust or express a cavalier attitude towards it. Your words are greatly upsetting, especially to Black Christians who have an affection for Israel and Jews. Please reevaluate your attitude towards my people. Talk to more of us. You will see how wrong you are. God Bless.

          • Jger

            I’m sure you find everything to be prejudiced or racist. Get over yourself, you have no value.

          • tagalog

            Well, the public statements that are made by black spokespersons typically characterize the Jews as exploitative of black people. I have NEVER heard about any black spokesperson saying anything that resembles any identification with the bondage of the Jews.

            On the other hand, I have heard Jews many times attempt to relate the black slave experience to the Jewish slave experience. Blacks give the appearance of rejecting that identification, and I think it’s more than just an appearance.

      • Montani42

        Kosh are you aware that hundreds of thousands of white Irish children and adults were sold as slaves under James II’s rule? These slaves were used in Virginia, New England, and the islands. Do you hear the Irish decendants whining or crying about that? Chinese were sold for $10 a head to work on constructing the railroads in the west. Today the Chinese decendants are mostly wealthy, educated, and successful. The black decendants of slaves decided to follow immoral lazy criminal behavior instead, in the majority.The hardworking clean living minority of black Americans have to put up with the stigma of the disgusting majority the have babies out of wedlock, stay drunk, or drugged and are too lazy to work.

        • seewithyourowneyes

          And don’t forget about Korean immigrants. In the mid-twentieth century Korea was poorer than many sub-Saharan African countries. Korean immigrants to the US often faced prejudice, especially from WWII vets who’d suffered abuse from the Japanese. (I remember a former POW friend of my father’s who started trembling and had to go throw up just because an Asian family had entered the restaurant where we were eating.) Yet, despite hatred and prejudice, Koreans have succeeded in the US. (and are now discriminated against in college admissions because of their success.) – It is the poisonous black “ghetto culture” (created for them by the cultural Marxists) which truly oppresses blacks.

        • WebAntOnYouTube

          Listen, you RACIST,most Blacks are NOT lazy, immoral,or criminals. By the number of approving votes your blatantly racist comment got, I can tell this site is infected with racists who have nothing but animosity towards African Americans. I don’t agree with Oprah Winfrey but when I see the racism on this site I can certainly understand why she feels the way she does.

            Everyone here is speaking about how slavery has infected the world. The only Racist here is you. You Are full of Hate and rage Against people here who have said historical fact.

          • Dan

            I live in Chicago……I can tell you first hand that the vast majority of Blacks here are selfish, immoral, lazy, violent, rude, racist, and extremely unpleasant to be around. I’m sorry if these facts hurt your feelings, but the truth is the truth. And no, I don’t think this way because I’m “racist.”

            P.S. Get over yourselves!!!! There are tons of ethnicities that have been slaves in the past. Yes, even European ones. This was a barbaric time for humanity. It is what it is. No one owes blacks anything, and no one should feel guilty for being White and successful. Segregate to preserve sanity! It’s the only solution.

          • Kosh

            “I can tell you first hand that the vast majority of Blacks here are selfish, immoral, lazy, violent, rude, racist, and extremely unpleasant to be around.” The joke of it is, that we have a white man such as you talking about the majority of Blacks. You even accuse the Blacks of being racists when you yourself have just racistly abused them in your abovementioned statement.

          • Dan

            Wow, you couldn’t be more wrong if you tried. I apologize for having eyes and ears, as this is the basis for my first hand experience. Most white people judge another person by their CHARACTER, not their color. It’s how most of us were raised. Now, the problem is that most of the black people all seem to act a certain way, and let me tell you, the way they act is RUDE and VIOLENT. Forgive me for not wanting to be around people that act rude and violent, as I know the “politically correct police” have convinced people that anyone like this is “racist.” Thankfully, people are finally waking up. I have no problem with a black person that is friendly, but finding one like that, in this city, is like searching for a needle in a haystack. Blacks are some of the most evil and hate-filled people on the planet. They see “evil” white skin and they automatically hate. Separation is the best for both races. Then, all of you can attempt to be self-sufficient and can stop crying “racism” at every avenue of life.

          • Kosh

            Good idea whitey, are you going to compensate the blacks for their hundreds of years of slavery and segregation? What about the native Indians that you committed genocide on? Truth hurts white yank. Truth hurts.

          • Dan

            First of all, my family didn’t own any slaves, so I owe you NOTHING. Only a tiny minority of Americans ever owned slaves. This is true even for those who lived in the ante-bellum South where only one white in five was a slaveholder. Why should their descendants owe a debt? What about the descendants of the 350,000 Union soldiers who died to free the slaves? They gave their lives. What possible moral principle would ask them to pay (through their descendants) again?

            Reparations To African Americans Have Already Been Paid

            Since the passage of the Civil Rights Acts and the advent of the Great Society in 1965, trillions of dollars in transfer payments have been made to African-Americans in the form of welfare benefits and racial preferences (in contracts, job placements and educational admissions) – all under the rationale of redressing historic racial grievances. It is said that reparations are necessary to achieve a healing between African-Americans and other Americans. If trillion dollar restitutions and a wholesale rewriting of American law (in order to accommodate racial preferences) for African-Americans is not enough to achieve a “healing,” what will?

            What About The Debt Blacks Owe To America?

            Slavery existed for thousands of years before the Atlantic slave trade was born, and in all societies.

            But in the thousand years of its existence, there never was an anti-slavery movement until white Christians – Englishmen and Americans — created one. If not for the anti-slavery attitudes and military power of white Englishmen and Americans, the slave trade would not have been brought to an end. If not for the sacrifices of white soldiers and a white American president who gave his life to sign the Emancipation Proclamation, blacks in America would still be slaves.

            If not for the dedication of Americans of all ethnicities and colors to a society based on the principle that all men are created equal, blacks in America would not enjoy the highest standard of living of blacks anywhere in the world, and indeed one of the highest standards of living of any people in the world. They would not enjoy the greatest freedoms and the most thoroughly protected individual rights anywhere. Where is the gratitude of black America and its leaders for those gifts?

            You see, If it wasn’t for whites you’d be living in a hut made out of goat feces, and you certainly wouldn’t be holding the technological instrument to make your comment on this board, blackey.

      • glpage

        My ancestors came to the US in the mid-1850s with the clothes on their backs and not much more. The other side of the family were almost as poor and living in New England after they left Canada. So, at their economic level they weren’t able to influence others to do the “right thing”. For them, doing the right thing was to survive.

        You do realize that the vast majority of people in the US from the Declaration of Independence to the Civil War did NOT own slaves. Even in the southern states. There were very few slave owners and some were blacks themselves. And, for what it’s worth, there also were white slaves.

        Then there is the issues of how the slave owners came to possess the slaves. As others have pointed out, usually people from a tribe on the west coast of Africa would sell captives from other tribes to the slave traders. Some were acquired from Arab slave traders. And, as has been pointed out, this process still occurs today.

        Please take some time to fix your lack of knowledge of history.

        • tagalog

          The vast majority of white people present in the United States are the descendants of people who arrived in the United States after slavery came to an end.

          There are NO, repeat NO, I say again NO, black people alive whose parents – or, for that matter, whose grandparents – experienced slavery in the United States.

          There are a lot of black people whose families immigrated to the United States after slavery ended, too.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Actually, the vast majority of Americans are descended from the original colonists. A quick look at the national censuses proves it. America has NEVER been a nation of immigrants. I agree with your intention, though.

          • Nan

            Really? My family arrived here in the early 1900s. No original colonists in my background.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Your lineage is atypical. Read every census ever conducted. The majority of Americans have been native born, even during the major immigration waves.

          • tagalog

            I believe that the census data show that the majority of Americans are native-born, that makes perfect sense, but I don’t see how that makes it clear that the majority of Americans are descended from the original colonists. It seems very counterintuitive.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Prior to American independence in 1775 (or 1783 depending on how you look at it) most everybody here was a colonist or Indian. By 1775 there were two million, four hundred thousand colonists living here and their birthrate was very high – much higher than that of the Indians. The majority of Americans are directly descended from them. Even Black Americans are 25 to 30% White on the mean average.

          • tagalog

            Your first premise is compelling but your conclusion from that premise is a non sequitur, given immigration over the past century and a half. Perhaps there is some documentation for the conclusion that you can link me to.

        You are argueing Lemarckian evolution here.
        No person alive today in the USA was OR owned
        a slave therefore there is no standing as a basis
        for complaint. Diversity ideology is inherently
        racist because it posits racism as a racial
        characteristic of whites. This is dim thinking.
        Racism is a learned behavior and Those following
        the Diversity ideology are racist and carrying out
        oppression against whites based on some perceived historical
        connection. It is racial tyranny that will end like all other
        tyrannies.

        So some of us white folks whipped you and raped you…..it was your ancestors that sold you to white people…maybe you should talk to them or better yet go back to Africa since ya’ll seem to think that’s the motherland.

        • MichellyY

          And yet you continue your bigotry with false “facts”. I’ve never met a person, that is black, ever want to go back to africa. People brought them here, might as well stay ( in the time period slavery was abolished many slaves couldnt afford ships or tranaports back to africa even if they tried). Thus your lame argument just failed as well as your name “reddog”.

      • Slap you with the truth

        Clueless idiot – black slaves were enslaved by other blacks. They were kept as slaves by both blacks and whites. They were freed from slavery mostly through the efforts and blood of whites. The civil rights movement was supported by whites and would not have succeeded without whites. The current financial support of blacks through the welfare system is largely through the efforts of whites. Virtually everything blacks in America have today is through the sweat and blood of whites. There is plenty of room in Africa if you ever feel the need to find something that better suits your disposition. I’ll even buy you a ticket. I consider it an investment in a lowered future tax rate. You are a parasite.

        Yes, white people going to a country and ‘stealing’ people, taking them somewhere else and enslaving them is really bad and horrible. I can understand that a person who had to go through such a thing is not in the forgiving mood. The Black Population hasn’t been used as slaves for over a century now, so I highly doubt any of them could still be allive to hold a deep set grudge. Yes, there were segragation laws in tact until 1964, but that was still 50 years ago! I am aware of the fact that a racism view doesn’t vanish just because a law said so, but anyone born in 1964 was born into an america that was legally free from segregation. So everybody under 50 years old has never suffered from legal segregation and had technically the same possibilities of achiveing something as any white person in america. I am not saying that they had it as easy as maybe some white people but none the less the possibility. America has a black president, no? How long are people able to pull the “My ancestors have been enslaved by your ancestors”-card? I mean, I don’t even know the name of my grandparrents. I never met them, they died before I was born. Just because they are my grandparents do I have any claim over them? Do I get to ask for revenge for what happend to them during the WW2? How do people get to claim and accuse people over things that neither of them have any connection to but a drop of blood? the whole slave thing is part of american HISTORY. You can’t change it, but what you can do is move on. Injustuce is part of life. Even if everybody had the same color, there are always going to be people that learn quiker, are luckier with opportunities, have it easier to achieve something or whatever than other people. How long are you gonna sit there and cry about it? Accept it and work harder to achieve your goal. Don’t rant about how your grand grand grand grand parents were murdered and that’s why your options are limited.

        Yes, racism still exists. Whites hating on Blacks. Blacks hating on whites and so on. I am just getting sick and tired of that “Your ancestors were mean to my ancestor” argument.

      • Craig Robinson

        The BLACK ancestors enslaved and SOLD their own people.

      • bilw653

        1. whites did not invent slavery, nor were they the only racial group that took part in it.

        2. blacks sold their own people into slavery: many of whom volunteered for the basics of food water and shelter since their black kings and local tribes were simply killing them all off anyway.

        3. whites were the only group to end slavery, whilst slavery (along with cannibalism and ethnic-cleansing against affrikaans) still exists to this day in Africa.

        4. blacks in welfare-America or any white led country will always have it much better than they will ever have in Africa.

        5. just because one is black doesn’t mean their ancestors were slaves.

        6. Perhaps us whites could just make “amends” for slavery by buying every black looking person a first class ticket back to mother Africa. I wouldn’t mind throwing away another few trillion in debt, just to be done with it.

        (Of course we all know that blacks would never be “suckered in” to such a “wacist” proposition because just like a house dog blacks are now completely dependent on their welfare-masters whom still provide for them.)

    • Benny Martínez Pérez

      Racism isn’t only the fact that one race is superior than another but I would also add, although this makes for a more complicated argument, that it includes the prejudice against other races. This in the sense of saying we are all equals yet another race may be considered guilty or more propense to certain acts or attitudes than another AKA stereotypes. What she seems to be doing is just that, propagating stereotypes which I believe to be wrong no matter who’s doing it.

  • Adheeb

    These people as a whole are racists. Everything is seen by them through the lens of race. It is this mindset that keeps racism going in America and it tends to justify racist abuses by whites in the past. Racism will continue in America until these people stop making racism a cottage industry.

    This is the Progressive-Socialist plan to divide the races and cause fighting, a society with civil unrest is non-productive.

They aren’t fooling anyone.

      • Lanna

        Excuse me, but there are many people in cities that are very civil if not polite to one another, or even friendly, everybody looses in a society full of hatred, and the Socialist movement is not about spreading commradery or stability. Not everybody is a racist who wants to kill other races. Some people have more sense than that…many of us refuse to allow a movement to create division to poison the waters!

    How, in Oprah’s world, shall the non-black show that they have passed beyond racism, if not having ill will toward black people is racist?

    Maybe non-blacks should just give up trying. It appears as if blacks are rigging the game against us.

    That Oprah quotation is about as racist a remark as I can think of. I guess we now know who the racists are, i.e., those whose thoughts bring them to that bit of Doublethink.

    • Iamexpert

      The reason Oprah’s the most powerful woman on the planet and currently North America’s ONLY black billionaire is because she ALWAYS gets it right. Everyone is racist as that is hardwired into us genetically by millions of years of tribal evolution, however there are good racists and bad racists. The good racists are those who don’t harbor ill will and hate and are willing to work on their racism.

        Given your definition of good versus bad racists, I have to assume you do believe that there are good and bad racists among blacks as Oprah and apparently you assume there is among whites. And please, if you choose to respond, do not pull that racism is power over others crap. If you really believe that, 1) get a dictionary and read the real definition and 2) take a lesson from history and realize those kind of word games were what helped place and keep people like Hitler and Stalin and Mao in power.

    It’s important to understand that the race baiters will never, ever, give up the racism thing. No matter what happens, black “leaders” will always fall back on that theme to explain black failure in America. The culture that glorifies gangsters, treats women as “hos”, promotes illegitimate children, absentee fathers, etc., will never be held accountable. Besides, slime balls like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton need it to keep raking in the dough blaming whitey.

      But true. Remember that Zimmerman was racist despite the fact that he wasn’t. A person disagreeing with the president is racist just because the president is half black regardless of whether the president is wrong or not. Oprah herself admitted that the price tag on the purse was more than she was willing to pay but it was racist for the clerk to say the same thing. Comedians and Rap artists say racist things all the time, but it’s not racist because they are black and allowed to say racist things. NYPD is considered racist because they focus most of their energy in high crime districts despite the fact that the majority of the police are minorities. NAACP itself is racist by the name alone, but it’s OK because they are minorities. The congressional black caucus is racist, but that’s similarly OK. It’s considered good to hire a person based on race as long as that race is a minority. Same thing with admitting to college or any other favoritism. The fact is that there is much racism in America but it’s OK because the racists aren’t politically racist.

  • Zulka Sunderland

    Everybody engaged in slavery. Everybody. Especially Africans, on both sides of the issue, as they actively sold their own people to European slave traders – the key word there is “traders”… can’t trade if you don’t have a partner – and to this day, in partnership with Islamic societies, still use and export slave labor. The idea that Americans are *uniquely* guilty in the sordid history of the slave trade is just more postmodern crap from the wannabe 1960’s pseudo-Marxist idiots who currently infest academia. People with exactly the same world view as our weak, failed President.

  • Montani42

    Notice the almost complete silence from Obama, Oprah, Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson about the 3 black teens that shot a white baby in the head because its mother had no money for them to steal. Note the silence about the 3 black teens that shot a white Australian baseball player in Oklahoma, because they were bored. Both of these were racist hate crimes. Do you think in either case the killing would have taken place if the victim was black? 86% of street crime in New York is committed by minorities, but the police are accused of racism if they target minorities! Our media and most liberals ignore the facts about the huge percentage of crime committed by black men.

    You are attempting to counter a whimsical, racist argument with hard facts. The audience you seek does not care about facts. For them the hatred of white people has been cultivated and enhanced because it can be twisted into a means of political control. Until the people on the receiving end of all of this racist hatred, the white Americans, wake up and openly object to this treatment, nothing will change. Unfortunately it will probably take a serious slap in the face before that happens. Australia is beginning to understand!

    doers, where they came from, and more important, who defends them. Major American urban areas, Atlanta, Oprah’s home Chicago, St Louis, Detroit, New Orleans, Jacksonville are case on point. By majority, the same element terrorizes the public, ties up the courts and populates the prisons. That element has no personal responsibility, and is encouraged to deny that truth. It sees itself as a revolutionary against racism. Racism is the cause of the outrageous black on black murder rate and the seventy plus per cent out of wedlock birth rate. Were the no racism, there would be no drug use in their community or street gangs. To them, they are a new breed for a new era, but in fact are an old hat for a new master, people like Oprah, and Al, and Jesse that have joined the old master in the same arena.

      There were more than a hundred of these white extras. Each and every one cried, in unison. Not sniffly, weepy crying, but full-on, full-throated, loud bawling. The volume was tremendous. It went on for several minutes before things finally settled down and the scene was shot again. When the director said “cut” the white extras again burst into tears and cried even louder than the first time — a sonic blast it was, pinning the Nagra tape recorder’s VU meter even though its pot was set low, about “3” on a 10-scale, and causing a dog to break through a glass door to escape the roar.

    I can’t believe how racist Oprah is. She has become part of the problem, not the solution. Seems like she’s spreading hate.

  • Truth

    Oprah is the most successful black woman in US history. She could not have done that without help from white people. (Obama said “You didn’t build that.”) And still, she exhibits her racist tendencies.

      Crappy interviewer, too. Often steps in and interrupts an answer just as it’s getting to the meat of the question.

    The problem with Voter ID laws is they disproportionately negatively affect minorities because they are more likely to lack proper id. Until that is remedied, Voter ID laws should be put on hold. Otherwise, they’re just another instrument of racial oppression. Besides, the in-person voter fraud that Voter ID is supposed to prevent has repeatedly been proven to be a rare thing. Voter fraud is more likely to occur via the absentee balloting that Whites favor.However, Republicans don’t care about that. I wonder why. Hmm.

      Then they need to get it like everyone else. Next! You need a "Driver License" to drive, a hunting lic to hunt, a fishing lic to fish, a marriage lic to marry, a concealed carry lic to carry a gun, a lic to practice medicine, a lic to practice law and etc. You need to start thinking for yourself outside the liberal box and stop being controlled by the "White Liberal Plantation", As a Pastor of a 95% African-American Church I can tell you the "Voter ID" argument by the Liberal and Racist Plantation owners is bogus. Its about control and stealing votes. They are playing you like a video game. The democrat party was and is the party of slavery. There are a lot more democrats who were members of the klan than republicans. There are at least 50 in congress who are associated with the Communist Party, according to Communist Party USA.

      >>>has repeatedly been proven to be a rare thing.<<<
      Not really! According to the White Liberal Plantation it is.
      The same people who threatened to beat me up at a polling station in Phila. I was a poll watcher and witnessed massive Voter Fraud. I watched as a poll worker walked in and out of a voting machine, as it registered a vote every time. I became loud and confronted him. The next thing I knew was that the candidate I supported came running into the polling station to get me out of there before the union showed up. His father was tipped off that the union was on its way there to hurt me, because I had exposed what they were doing. So don't tell me it does not happen or it is rare. The democrat party told my candidate how many votes he was going to lose by. They told him that they would make him look good in the showing, but lose never the less. They did this because my candidates father was a well know political strategist in the city and out of respect for his father they gave him a good showing in the votes. So don't tell me its rare. I think outside the box and am not controlled as a "useful idiot".

      Black voter fraud is the policy of the Peoples Liberal Socialist Demcrap party. The U.S.A. sends people to watch voting in 3rd world countries while the Black Power Racist Obama lead U.S. government does everything to use voter fraud to stay in power. What a joke.

    • Dallas25305

      Why can’t blacks get voter I.D.?? Are they to stupid???

    • Dan

      WOW. if you don’t work for MSNBC, you certainly should. Lol. Talking point city here. The bottom line is that the leftists don’t want voter I.D. laws in effect because they wouldn’t be able to gather up all of their community activists and proceed to go around and vote as dead people and fraudulently represent themselves as other living voters. It’s been proven time and time again that the leftists do this. Especially in Chicago. The talking point that “blacks can’t get I.D.’s because they’re poor” is the biggest heap of dog shit I’ve ever heard. I hope people realize that it simply isn’t possible to get through life without some form of legal identification. You need an I.D. to buy cigarettes, gamble, drink alcohol, drive, open a bank account, apply for food stamps/welfare, unemployment benefits, get a job, rent an apartment, apply for Medicare, get on a plane, get married, get a hotel room, buy a cell phone, pick up a prescription, and adopt a pet. These are just A FEW things that you need an I.D. for. As you can see, it isn’t possible to get through life without an I.D., unless you’re homeless. You have no argument. You need an ID to do just about anything in this country, but somehow voting is just a “no-no.” LOL. WHAT A JOKE you leftists are.

      You blacks can go get a welfare card. Why shouldn’t you or any color person get a voter I D card? You lying mounds of tar!

  • Jason Nash

    a very good read, ben I believe you speak from the heart

    typical race baiter

  • akellypierre

    Have you ever done any anti-racist education or training? Oprah’s point is easily misunderstood without a shared vocabulary about what racism is. That vocabulary/shared understanding wouldn’t negate the truth of some of the points you raised nor some of the ones shared below. It’s a difficult conversation, but to have it we need to be fluent in the same paradigms.

  • boysenberry

    Everybody on the “raaacist” train. Its a money maker!
    ask Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, now Oprah has joined this high class group.
    Another racist movie coming up.

  • Fuji Condor

    I like what Rae Dawn Chong said about her.

  • Dallas25305

    Oprah should know about racism. She only has to look in the mirror. She first made her black racism evident in her dealing with the O.J. Simpson trail. Since the election of the Racist buffoon Obama she has taken the cover off and shown the Black Power Racist she really is.

  • Jah See

    There can be no equality before justice.

  • TIM

    to all you white people who made oprah rich and famous, this is your reward. you are a white racist to her. you hate obama because he is black, not because he has and is distroying america. goes to show, to black people you will always be a racist if you are white. racism is alive and well because black people get so much power out of it. in the past white people saw the power in using race, now black people use it for there power. power corrupts, and it is corrupting the black community now against white people. the same crime reversed. the new question is why do black people hate white people so much? probabily because of people like her, faning the flames for there own benifit, which in the end will hurt them even more.

  • Concerned

    It is sad to me that Obama has brought racistism into this country worse than what it was. I don’t care what color, what race a person is, it is what they do with their lives that count. If I think someone is wrong I will say so and that does not make me a racist. It makes me not like what they do. I do not like Oprah’s comments. They left out in court abut Trayvon breaking into houses. They did not want to charge him because it made the crime rate go up. Comparing him to Emmitt Till, murdered in 1955 by the Ku Klux Klan is stupid. Trayvon was killed by a man that was getting the shit beat out of him. Emmitt was killed by hatred in the KKK. I am sorry some black are treated badly by some racists. We are not all racists, we just look at the facts. Period

  • shelly

    i never disliked ms winfrey until this day. i would like to ask her if a black man did not like bill clinton is that racism. how about this ms winfrey president obama is being judged for the conduct of his character not for the color of his biracial skin.

  • Craig Robinson

    Is Oprah trying to make her hair as fat as her ass?? Racism will never die. Oprah, Sharpton, and Jackson live off this crap and continually fuel the fire. The only reason your president isn’t respected is because he’s a lying Kenyan muslim piece of shit. Not a racist statement, JUST A FACT.

  • Jake Pannel

    Oprah has it wrong….she is the racist because she only voted for him because he’s black.

  • Craig Robinson

    Hey Oprah, if you think FAT HAIR has a slimming effect, you misjudged the size of your butt.

  • Jah See

    No, they’re not. Do these look like towel heads to you? These are sheep – you know, who Libertarians like Andrew Napolitano and Alex Jones, speak so woefully about; those who would so intertwine God and State while thumping their chests, shouting “U.S.A! U.S.A!” All while the Bible is invoked by the government to strip your liberties.

  • Jane

    No – I choose my beliefs and you may in turn choose yours however, you have no need to disparage those that believe in Christ.

  • Jax

    Whites are racist until proven innocent… I’ve never done anything remotely racist. If i can be blamed for what the “whites did” in the past, then should black people be held accountable for anything someone black has ever done. truth be told, every race has murderers, kidnappers, perverts, you name it. should anyone be labeled as something they didnt do? Racism is SO pointless. its bitter hatred is all it is. racism is ugly in all colors people, not just white, and not even just against black people. In my eyes, everyones innocent until proven guilty. If i dont like you, i have a better reason than simply the color of ones skin.

  • OldSchoolHistory

    Yeah, because it’s about black people. That monkey ought to see if she make a billion dollars bitching about waaaycism in Africa.

    The concept of -isms is nothing but a bunch of nonsense anyway, and these self-centered nutjobs are rather sickening.

    I guess there’s a huge White-on-Black crime wave going on that constitutes full-on terrorism (since we have antiwhite terrorism as a state-sanctioned policy in the USSA).

    Give me all your crumpets! Please.
