Oprah Talks Trayvon, Race
on CNN: People Think If They
Don’t Use the ‘N-Word’
They’re ‘Not Racist’

Mediaite, by Matt Willstein

Oprah Winfrey and her co-star in Lee Daniels’ The Butler Forest Whitaker appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night to promote their film. During the interview, Anderson Cooper asked Winfrey to relate the historical themes of the movie to the modern day struggles for African-Americans, including the Trayvon Martin case. Winfrey said she “loves” the film in light of the discussion on race, because it “brings context” to the conversation. She described how the film begins with a lynching scene and ends with walking into President Obama’s office, showing how much has “happened in the span of one man’s lifetime

What about the struggles of non-African-Americas when they are confronted with the likes of Sharpton, Jackson, Holder, Obama and Winfrey?

The "facially-profiled" "Duck Dynasty" guys draw record-setting audiences, and The Big O´s fuss film is going to bomb.

Many discriminate against fat people and show them little respect. How does Oprah know if it´s her race, her weight, or just something she´s said that makes someone not "like" her?

Oprah must have suffered severe racial bias on her way to being a Billionaire. Somehow I see this as a contradiction in terms. She ought to take the lead of other successful Black people and be a UNITER, not a DIVIDER.
Instead she appears to be following Obama´s lead, in my opinion. Hardly helpful to young Blacks, as models of success.

In other words, according to Oprah, we’re all racist…period! No way out of it!

I’ve suspected as much for some years now. We (Whitey) should get the message and just say ‘the h*** with it!’

When a group of people defined by their race are thirteen times more likely to commit a violent felony and hurt you or worse, it is impossible not to think in terms of the defining factor - race. How we got here is a relevant but separate discussion. This reality has been artificially suppressed, brushed under society´s carpet by coercive PC. The danger PC pretends does not exist or is morally repugnant is still very much there.
People like Oprah see their side of the issue but are purposefully blind to the other side. The side that Zimmerman faced alone on a dark night.

I guess I don´t know the difference between prejudice and racism. Everybody has some biases. Everybody. And I think the corollary of Oprah´s statement is also true. You can use the N-word and not be racist. Especially in a fit of anger, immature at best, but evident. In anger, people sometimes grasp for hurtful statements to say about the other. It happens in marriage. It´s almost always regretted, but it needn´t have any long term effects.

Oprah made her career (and money) on not focusing on race but trying to appeal across all demographic groups. Now she is focusing on race to promote a movie she did. It is hard to keep track. This will never end because too many people don´t want it to.

Over a billion dollars made from mostly white America and she´s still whining.

Slavery ended over 150 years ago, "civil rights" almost 50 years ago, over 10,000 black or "African-American millionaires and they´re still whining.

Who´s fault is all of this? Does the black American community ever accept responsibility for anything?

For those whose world view is based on political correctness, "racist" is a synonym for "conservative". In the Left´s perspective, if you´re Liberal, you aren´t racist.

At first it seems like the rule is "if you´re black, you can´t be racist", until you observe how conservative blacks (e.g. J.C.Watts, Clarence Thomas, Allen West) are branded racists and race-traitors.

If I tell Oprah to s the f up, does that make me a racist? Or a misogynist? It´s just too hard to keep up with the Left´s rules of illogic these days.

Hollywood keeps churning out movies such as "The Butler" and "42" (about Jackie Robinson). All this does is keep reopening the wound and making a whole new generation of black "victims" who hate whites as a matter of general principle. I go to a water exercise class at my gym and we have blacks and whites sharing friendships and fun. Everyone is welcome and feels part of the group. This is the way it can be and should be. It´s only when certain segments of society do not want to let victimhood go that the racist divide continues unabated.

I would imagine that much of the ´racism´ Oprah pretends to have experienced over the course of her seemingly ever more pathetic life, has nothing to do with her race or even with the fact that she is so damned fat, but rather with the fact that she is an obnoxious individual. The stories of her bullying and abusing others to whom she feels superior are endless. And the only way the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman affair had anything to do with race was because of the likes of Winfrey and other racists of her ilk trying desperately to make it about race when in fact the incident had nothing to do with it. The utter stupidity of this woman knows no bounds.

WASHINGTON—First lady Michelle Obama plans to meet Chicago high school students in the nation´s capital Thursday when they visit Howard University to gain exposure to college life, White House aides said. Bow Wow, a rapper, actor and co-host of BET´s "106 & Park," will join a campus tour with the first lady and the Chicago Public Schools students and moderate her round-table discussion with them, her aides said. The students, juniors and seniors, will be on the first day of a four-day visit to Howard for a program called "Escape to the Mecca." The program is designed to give talented

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens. Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina “Uncle Toms.” Holmes, who also has said that it’s fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we’re exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks.

WASHINGTON — In wake of two mass shootings this month, Attorney General Eric Holder urged Congress Tuesday to authorize $15 million for training state and local law enforcement officers to confront so-called active shooters. "In the face of this urgent and growing threat – when the lives of innocent people are at stake – those who stand on the front lines need our full and unwavering support," Holder said in a video message posted on the Justice Department´s website.

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch. With concrete walls and floor, the

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman advised the White House on how President Obama should announce his support for gay marriage. A Harvard classmate of Obama’s, Mehlman told the president over a White House lunch that it was politically viable to reverse his position and support gay marriage, according to a report in The New York Times. Mehlman, who managed George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and came out as gay in 2010, told Obama that the American public viewed him as an idealist willing to put politics aside, and that endorsing same-sex marriage would reinforce that image.

If you do not think the responsibilities of a mother comprise the "World´s Toughest Job," a greeting card company is hoping to change that with its new viral video. American Greetings enlisted the help of Boston-based advertising agency Mullen for its Mother´s Day campaign this year. The company started the project just before Christmas break last year. "One of our writers went home to Michigan to be with her family," recalled Jon Ruby, vice president and creative director at Mullen. "She spent quite a bit of time with her brother and sister-in-law. She does not have kids, but they do.

Josh Romney took a quick potshot at Sen. Harry Reid this week with a Twitter post of his famous father, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, standing in line to pay his taxes. The tweet included the text: “Hey @SenatorReid here’s a shot of @MittRomney paying taxes. Does it every year. It’s how you get your paycheck.” The back story is that Mr. Reid insisted during the last presidential campaign that Mr. Romney was a tax dodger who sent his money to offshore accounts — even when that claim was proven untrue. Mr. Reid’s exact words, as reported by The Hill:

Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu is facing criticism after she reenacted a Senate hearing for a campaign ad -- while also fixing a flub from her original remarks. Landrieu’s ad, titled “Will Not Rest,” appears at first glance to feature footage of the senator passionately arguing for increased oil and gas revenue sharing during a Hill hearing. Landrieu’s campaign described the ad in a press release as highlighting the Louisiana senator´s “efforts to stand up to the administration in order to fight for Louisiana, and protect and strengthen our energy industry that supports 300,000 high-paying jobs.” The ad features various clips of

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

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

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

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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)

White babies just 15 months old show racial

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

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

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

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
