Oprah Decries Americans´ Ignorance
on Civil Rights, Laments ´Millions´
of Blacks Lynched

Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/1/2013 10:49:27 AM

In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last

Maybe she could focus on what is being taught in the schools here and the incompetent union teachers rather than spending millions of dollars for her school in Africa. s/o

Lynchings were ghastly and evil and not to be tolerated. But there were not millions of Black people lynched at all. Most figures I have seen are about 5,000 which is still horrible.

And Oprah, I know plenty about the Civil Rights movement. I am a history buff and have read a lot about it. So there.

Perhaps she should addressed the millions of Blacks that have been and continue to be murdered using medical tools and then flushed down the toilet at the rate of 1,600 per day...those numbers are more shameful and accurate than the ones she cites for lynching...

Oprah is one of the most influential people on earth, so it is troubling that she should be so ignorant. She is only off by three orders of magnitude (a factor of 1000), but who cares, the narrative is spot on for the racial grievance community.

OW is a diva of the dummies, the queen of the easily influenced, a leader of the lofos. Like many other "has beens", she was so yesterday, but she is trying to be relevant today. Much like a faded hollywood star, her time has passed. Most of us really do not care what she has to say.

Oprah is the ignorant one here; yes, the lynchings were ghastly, but no one alive today had anything to do with this. Oprah would do better to spend her money communicating with the black community to clean up their image. Blacks always want to be the victims. Encourage young black men to stay in school, learn to read and write properly, marry the woman who you impregnate, and learn skills so you can get a job and contribute to society, get off welfare. My image of black men is formed by experience; I have been robbed twice by black men, I was assaulted by a black man, and I witnessed a mugging of a white man by black youths. This is the image Oprah, Sharpton, and Jesse need to focus upon. I did not even mention how appalled most of us were about Rachael Jeantel who was both ignorant and arrogant; not a good image at all.

The white slavery of Irish outnumbered the black slavery...but found being on the dole a reprehensible humiliation.

Oprah please address the outrageous black on white violence that exists today...address Channon Chistian and Chris Newsome that was in yesterday´s posting from FrontPage Magazine...and should have been a MUST READ today

This is how libs play.

No one ever calls them on it, so why should they stop doing it? They lie because they are liars by nature, but I don´t understand why their followers agree to be lied to.

Yeah, and if blacks knew it was the Republican Party that actually was instrumental in passing the civil rights legislation of the 1960´s would that matter? Like LBJ said on tape, "If we pass this, we´ll have the n----rs´ votes for a generation." LBJ was wrong only in that it has been more than a generation that blacks have voted for the dhimmirat plantation overseers.

The Oprahs of the world have little regard for facts. They rely upon their emotions to form their conclusions. The careless use of language and lack of simple intellectual discipline is characteristic of the type. These are not the people to turn to for wisdom or instruction. They have their uses, e.g. entertainment. It is a mistake to take them seriously and a sign of serious trouble in a culture when large numbers of people do so.

Oprah, Oprah, Oprah, what you moss is that most of us were never tuned in to your Big Black Hope still sitting the world´s once power seat with his white communist half denied but dominating. The rest are tuned out and off by the sob sister stories.

I refuse to pander by making a of course this or that was ladaladalada, because some of us have outgrown the racism era. People asked for a chance and then voted in Change--a chance for a socialist to change America. What doesn´t Oprah understand, being self interest focused?

Trained to dislike racism and avid watchers of "The Help", many of us really dislike racists of all colors. MLK dreamt and opened a promise in brotherhood that failed. Feminists promised women big things and what it has produced is the option for women of being sex hustlers to have a man. Intellectuals promised us enlightenment and what they gave us is a bunch of atheists to tromp on our rights. Gays asked for equality in marriage rights but what they want and won´t settle without is power, power to demand accomodation from society.

So with that in mind, what was it Oprah was bemoaning?

The best thing that could happen is for honest people to quit supporting these actors, singers, dancers, politicians, crooks, whatever they do for a living. No longer buy any of their products or watch any of their free TV, Radio, etc that supports their ignorant attitude.

It has been way more than enough for 30 years.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with the House GOP’s probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation,

The White House on Tuesday downplayed the controversy over media access to President Obama, who will hold a moment of silence to mark the Boston Marathon bombing anniversary in the Oval Office without the press. The president and aides will observe the anniversary of the deadly attack behind closed doors at 2:29 p.m., exactly one year after two pressure cookers packed with shrapnel detonated near the finish line of the raise. “The president´s going to have a moment of silence in the Oval Office.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
