Wow genius.. what do you think we would be called if we started and paid for a school whose sole goal was to make sure every white kid got an education and excluded every other race. Could it be.....RACIST!


It was also only for girls to, I guess she's racist and sexist too!

What about private and boarding schools only for girls and boys in the US? Is that illegal.

But seriously, why is everyone complaining about Oprah, does she have an impact in anyway on your life or anyone elses that doesn't give a flip.

Like I said if this thread would have never popped up we could be discussing ACTUAL issues.

Who's denying the possiblity. All you are doing is stating the obvious and baiting. Look at how you opened your thread, you were looking for controversy obviously and looking to generate many replys. Live with it.

You yourself look racist according to your opening poll. She's black, supported a black man, gets and interview with him, GEE! She must be RACIST!

Pot calling the kettle black?

Good point. I guess she is sexist too. Either that or maybe those poor African boys don't deserve a good education. You have to admit it is pretty sexist not to educate boys as well. I guess all she deems worthy in the world are her fellow black females.

So you don't find it a tad odd that this woman never was openly poitically active for fear of a negative impact on her ratings, but then when a black man has a chance she throws caution to the wind and goes hog wild campaigning for Obama.


Hogwild? Exactly how many times did she campaign for Obama, I can only recall a few at the most. There were alot of people that weren't politically active that voted and went door to door for Obama, so I don't see how that argument works.

This is the pot calling the kettle black, the same people in this thread calling all of this racist are the same people coming to conclusions based on the color of her skin.

She didn't just interview him. That woud be fine since she has done that for many politicians, but she actually campaigned openly for the man. You ever seen her do that for a white man or an asian man?

I also don't see how anyone could say she is racist when she's supported other Dems in the past, if she was racist would she have supported Clinton or Carter, if she was racist wouldn't that go against everything racism stood for?

Like I said:

"There were alot of people that weren't politically active that voted and went door to door for Obama, so I don't see how that argument works."

The point is she STILL SUPPORTED white candidates for the Presidency, and has a history of supporting DEM'S. How could she be racist if she voted for white people to control this country, answer me that.

I'm sorry but the fact that she campaigned for Obama doesn't qualify as her being racist to me, your dislike for Obama and apparently oprah is clouding your judgement.

Did she openly go out on the campaign trail for Carter or Clinton? NO,

Why? Because they weren't black.

That's what there argument sounds like, they sound just like the pro-Obama crowd saying anyone who disagrees with them is racist.

What proof do you have that she didn't do it because they weren't black? Could the reason why she didn't previously do it have something to do with money as opposed to race? You're very illogical, friend, and so is this thread.

Quit playing stupid, I guess i'll have to look up the definition of racism for you:

1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

Now tell me, how can a woman, who has supported white men in the past for presidency, who has tons of white friends be racist?

I don't care if she campaigned for them or not, that isn't the point, the point is she supported them. If you can't see that then there is obviously a bias here that you cannot get past.

I didn't say that. I said she is racist because she openly campaigned for him because he was back. She never openly campaigned for anyone before him.

It is racist because she changed her behavior based on his race. IT is just as racist as al the people who never voted before but signed up just to vote for Obama because he was black.

Just so you don't misunderstand, some people did vote for him because they thought he was the best candiate, but you know there were millions of blacks that almost never vote that rushed to the polls to vote for him only because they wanted a black man as President. I don't really fault them because I might have done the same if I were them... but it is still racist.

What proof do you have that she openly campaigned for him because he was black? Moreover, I suggest you educate yourself on the differences between bias, prejudice, discrimination and racism.

He doesn't have any proof, just the color of her skin is his proof and the fact that she didn't campaign for a president before him, but I don't see how that argument holds up, Oprah didn't have as much influence as she does now back then.

Like I said the assertion itself is racist, how do we know the people who voted for McCain weren't racist, we don't, it's all just time wasted speculation over non-issues.
