Oprah Winfrey: Americans know
‘diddly-squat’ about civil rights era

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/1/2013 11:10:53 AM

Oprah Winfrey said Americans by and large know “diddly-squat” about the history of the civil rights movement. The talk show queen and media mogul made her comments during the promotion of her new film, “The Butler,” about a black man who serves in that capacity through seven administrations at the White House. “They don’t know diddly-squat,” she said in a recent interview with Parade magazine. “Diddly-squat.” Ms. Winfrey also said that when she hears the N-word, she thinks of the “millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.”

Comments:
Baloney, one of the reasons our kids finish H.S. without being able to read or write is because our Public School Curriculum bombards them with PC indoctrination on a wide array of "social issues" including black victimology.
The Trayvon Martin matter has nothing to do with "Civil Rights". 0prah is a moron and racist.

"millions" hanging from a tree clearly shows how much Oprah knows about history.

Millions?

I hope people learn about this stuff. I hope people discover that before the civil rights era we did not put millions of black men into Government cages, that a black man´s chance of getting murdered was much lower than it is today, that black families actually existed, that there were great cities like Detroit, that a black guy in 1950 with no education could actually get a job (a real job - not a job selling drugs) etc.

Of course the very few blacks who have benefited from affirmative action (Obama) and race baiting (Jackson) or who are very rich (Orpah) do not give a rat´s ass about most black people.....

The Big O has proved herself a complete buffon on more than one occasion in more than one arena on more than one subject, but never more so than what she speaks of this.

SHE is the one who knows nothing about the Civil Rights Era, and she proves it with her "millions" comment. That´s as far as I went with the "article." I don´t have the time to waste to go further.

Who listens to this self-proclaimed Queen?

I notice that she ignores the very real fact that not only did whites help in the struggle for civil rights for blacks, they also helped found NAACP and some whites also lost their lives in the struggle for the cause.

But you won´t hear that from the hustlers, just more ´blame whitey´ instead of taking personal responsibility for their own lives.

She is right. Americans know diddly-squat about civil rights because entertainers like her do not speak the truth. Education systems do not teach history. Politicians lie to get elected. Black race avengers are just hustlers looking for more hate.

Other than that, It´s all good.

Diddly-squat? This Reverend Wright church going racist communist knows nothing of the USA and her constitution...but knows plenty about the grievance industry´s and Affirmative Action...

There were more Irish slaves sold to America by the English...than there were Black slaves sold by other blacks in Africa...

You think this country is so unfair Oprah...go back and claim your freedom in Africa where you fund your people´s schools. Another racist puke..

When I hear the "N-word," it´s usually because my car radio stopped on one of those black-orientated rap radio stations.

Yes, there are things that were done in the past that were wrong. But there are also a lot of successes as well; sadly, many in the race business are there for the graft and payoffs, using little of their ill-gotten gains to actually help black Americans.

Whites as well as blacks were lynched. Mob "justice" was, sadly, a common practice in the South and the West at one time.

And it continues to be practiced in many areas of the world ... most notably, by black people in Africa.

Wonder if Oprah knows "diddly-squat" about the lynching of many young black men in South Africa? -- by other blacks, most famously Winnie Mandela?

And what would Oprah call the New Black Panthers´ threats against George Zimmerman and his family?

I re-watched "Schindler´s List" recently and was struck by the incredible brutality shown to the Jews in Europe. How is it that the Jewish people, have for the most part, "gotten over it" even while there are still many survivors of the Holocaust, yet millions of blacks who know diddly squat about slavery which ended in the US long before they were born are unable to "get over it"?

Oprah - I would like you to get to know my personal story. Oh wait, I´m an average American citizen so that won´t work. You seem to associate only with the celebrities and politicians etc. How about you share some wealth with the average American citizens?

You and Obama blast everyone for wealth and celebrity but who do you search out for friends and acquaintances? Of course, celebrities and politicians.

I know more about civil rights than you do. I was raised that when it comes to skin color, you should be "color-blind" and my mom knew what she was talking about. How about you getting to know my personal story?

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

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.

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

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
