Oprah does not seem to understand the race card has lost its trump status. I mean really, its been misused so much and thrown out even despite higher cards were laid on the table. The race cards magical white guilt blinding abilities has lost it's mojo from being over played , misused or used when not applicable.edit on 16-11-2013 by DarthFazer because: (no reason given)
During an interview with the BBC Friday, she not only said that President Obama is treated with disrespect because he’s black, but also that entire generations of racists are going to have to die for racism to end. ...
Notice that Winfrey added "color of their black skin." Why not just leave it as "color of their skin?" ...
Why do folks such as her only see racism through the prism of how blacks are treated? By looking at the problem so narrowly, doesn't it make matters worse? ...
So in Winfrey's view, it's older white people that are the problem, and once they die, racism ends.... It is patently absurd to suggest that racism is caused by old white people when racism and religious bigotry cut across all generations and ethnicities.
You have to watch the video to see the venom in Oprah's voice when she says "they all need to die off".
She's speaking of older people raised back when racism was the norm.
If someone hates carrots (god forbid!) people aren't going to first assume that it is because of the colour "orange".
