Oprah: Generations ´marinated´ in racism
will need to die out for discrimination
to end across the world

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/17/2013 12:54:35 PM

Oprah Winfrey has said racism is still a problem around the world and the only way for it to end is for generations of racists to die out. In an interview with the BBC to coincide with the release of her latest film The Butler, the chat show host said generations had been ´marinated´ in racism. The 59-year-old added that President Obama was treated with disrespect because of the color of his skin and said she feels fortunate to have been born after segregation ended in the U.S. [Snip] She highlighted an incident in 2009 when Republican congressman Joe Wilson

Interesting how "the chosen" are protected by the lsm--no chance of seeing an article as this in the msm--we needn´t create any problems for the ??? fill in your names.s/o

Oprah, in case you are not aware, let me inform you--Joe Wilson was correct!! Obummer lied, lied, lied and lied, it may be simpler to list the times he spoke the truth!!

You mean like those generations who were "marinated" into watching your show for 20 plus some years and made you wealthier than God Almighty.

A little bit o´news for you, Oprah. Those weren´t all black ladies in your audience.

But most of them were lofo voters, I guess.

This may come as a shock to Oprah but blacks are much more racist than any other race. Her President has done more to foster racism in this country then any prior President.

In order to eliminate racism, we need to eliminate race-baiters. Members of her ethnicity lead the charge.

Oprah and Opama...two peas in the pod. The more a person is given the less that person appreciates it. It is time these people pick a better country. I hope they don´t read Ken Hamblin´s book, "Pick a Better Country" first. That book might reveal to them that there is no better country. Ken Hamblin is a conservative black man who grew up in Harlem and earned his way in the world and given only opportunity. A lesson for all.

I think Oprah’s actually got a good idea there. If a large number of racists suddenly died, the democraps would be out of power for the next 100 years or so. The majority of racists in this country(as admitted by them when they voted 94%(?) for the current occupant of the white house) being democrap voters…

Big 0prah and 0bama do more to stir the "Racial" pot than any two people in history. I do not feel that I am racist, however, two of the most frightening events in my life were being robbed by black people. No white person ever robbed me.

0prah is 100% right on. I´m not going to speculate about around-the-world, but a lot of Leftists in the US of A are going to have to die out for things to get better for blacks hee.

The Democrat Left has had its Racist Jackboot on the necks of blacks for almost as long as I can remember.

I wonder if Big 0prah has watched the black teens playing "Knock Out," where these black thugs prey upon some nonsuspecting white person, and they sucker punch them as hard as they can to see if they can knock them out. Some of these victims have died. All the film showed black youths preying upon white people. The blacks laugh about it and say it is fun. We need to hear from Big 0prah and 0bama on this fun game the black youth are playing and laughing about.

She is missing the point about who was "marinated in racism". She and Sharpton and Jessuh and all the other race-baters who live like barnacles on the BG Industry, will have to die off and - the good news - some like her will leave no tainted progeny. Then those whom those race-baiters marinated will have to die off. It may take a while.

She really doesn´t get it. Not liking Obama has nothing to do with his race. It has everything to do with his Marxism. He chose Communists and Socialists as friends and professors. How do we know? He told us. His good friend in Chicago was a WHITE domestic terrorist that we don´t like either. This has nothing to do with race; it has everything to do with his ideology. Get over it, Oprah. We have.

Generations of racists will have to die, Oprah? So tell me, is that why hundreds of black men murder their fellow blacks in Chicago every year? Is that why such a huge number of violent black men will spend their days in prison, instead of rearing a healthy generation of non-racist black children, by being a loving, hard-working dad they can look up to? Is that why so many black women, especially, eat themselves into morbid obesity, diabetes, hypertension, kidney and heart disease, on junk food, just so they can get out of the way for a less racist society? Honestly, Oprah,your fifteen minutes is SO up. Why don´t you just retire, rest on your laurels, and enjoy your lucre and your $3000 handbags that vanishingly few people of any hue would own? Or you could devote some of that vast wealth to finding ways to train your fellow downtrodden blacks to earn and hold good jobs. Tried to find a good tradesman lately? There is work to be had for those who are willing to do learn and DO. Oh, never mind. I remember now. Whitey sposed to jes fo´k I over the money, so he don´t be called racist. Got it.

Though it is hazardous to say so, much of what is deplored as evil, inexplicable, irrational racism is perfectly rational and grounded in extensive experience. This means that all of those "tainted" by racism could pass away today and that their replacements would soon acquire the very same racist attitudes. Nothing can change until the behavior of many blacks changes. That segment of the black race that is forever getting into trouble with the law, refusing to apply themselves to education, existing on transgenerational welfare rather than earning their livings, talking, acting and dressing like ignorant and antisocial losers is the main incentive for racism. Even though everyone knows this unsavory segment by no means represents all blacks, that there are many perfectly normal, conscientious, law-abiding and successful blacks, the urban lumpenproletariat gets all the attention. Who wouldn´t look down on, avoid, despise and distrust such types? It is not their skin color or their "ethnicity," it is their behavior. This is an exceedingly difficult, perhaps impossible distinction for Leftists to grasp.

The same dynamic applies to Muslims. That all Muslims are not terrorists and enemies of America is widely known. That many, perhaps most of those in America manage to be decent, law-abiding, hard-working and even patriotic citizens is beyond doubt. But the jihadists and criminal elements absorb all the attention. Islamophobia is not a disease. It is a rational distrust of Muslims that one does not know sufficiently well to be certain where their allegiances lie.

When a celebrity says something like that they usually never think of the "unintended " consequences, because there is little doubt that some feral ghetto youth are going to take Winfrey´s comments in a way that says, with a wink and a nod, that one way that they can banish racism is for them to go out and murder old defenseless White people.

When will blacks realize they are more racist than any other race? How could a handful of white sailors force hundreds,and even, thousands of blacks to get aboard their slave ships if they didn´t have help from the blacks in Africa? Also, there are no more racist blacks than Sharpton and Jackson. If racists must die first then there may not be many blacks left, Oprah.

The one modern example: Joe Wilson saying You Lie after Obama claimed no illegal aliens would get coverage under Obamacare. This is actually quite an egregious lie because the increase in coverage will come from Medicaid policies and many illegals receive Medicaid.

Oprah like most other actors is blinded by his mixed race and prejudices of their own against white people in general. They just won´t admit to this prejudice.

If anyone with an open mind and some intelligence dug into his past they would have found he is a Marxist communist and a Muslim. And yes there is such a thing as stated above. There were Nazi Muslims who fought with the Third Reich.

What a cow. She´s still fanning the fires of racism. Does she ever have an original thought or does she merely worship the supreme racist stoker called Barry and follow his every footstep?

So, they have to die off, or be killed off? Knowing how leftists operate, it is more likely the latter than the former.

All the usual suspects like Oprah, Harvey Weinstein and the MSNBC crowd are bleating about various things--´racism´ and ´stupid American people´ who don´t worship at this monster´s feet.

The usual distraction to cover up the failures, the deaths, the manipulation... controlled by who...Soros? Some other puppet master? Notice how coordinated, how well timed. How ValJar...the Iranian cat´s paw.

For Oprah, raped by at least two black men, rewarded by White America for her broadcast crap...to demand that Southern white people die to eliminate racism is disgusting.

I´d like a nice chocolate cheesecake or two fed to her, in the manner that French farmers force feed a goose to swell the liver for pate. But just keep it going.

Relax, Mumsnet users: don´t lose

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Asian pollution is causing a ´dramatic´

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

Russia Spent More of Its Wealth
on Military than U.S. in 2013

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

´Up to 11 killed´ as soldiers loyal

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Daphne du Maurier ´overlooked´

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

WATCH LIVE: First total lunar eclipse of

A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon a dark blood red tonight. Just after Mars reaches its closest point to earth in six years, a distance of a mere 57.4 million miles, a total lunar eclipse will spectacularly change the colour of the moon. But don´t get too twitchy with the curtains in the early hours--only people in north and south America will be able to see it with the naked eye. If you live in the UK, mainland Europe or most of the rest of the world by far your best chance of seeing the eclipse is right

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

When William Hague, our Foreign Secretary, warns that Russia is quietly orchestrating anti-government protests in eastern Ukraine, his words should be taken as a wake-up call to all those other EU foreign ministers who are none too keen on standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin´s newfound enthusiasm for Tsarist-style military adventures. [Snip] While both Mr Kerry and Mr Hague are coy about precisely how they know the Russians are up to no good in Ukraine, it is no secret that the FSB, Russia´s equivalent of the CIA, is committed to keeping Ukraine in a state of heightened instability for

The United Nations (UN) has delivered its latest verdict on the measures necessary to save the world from global warming and the news is as grim as it is predictable and wearisomely familiar: More regulation from "experts", technocrats and bureaucrats at supranational organisations, such as the one whose initials begin with U and end with N. [Snip] More nuclear power (with shale gas used as a transitional fuel to replace coal). The abandonment of fossil fuels. Less meat consumption. A single, globally-regulated price for carbon dioxide. More local-government-enforced walking, cycling and public transportation. More back-door wealth redistribution from the West

Big Brother isn´t watching you--but he is listening. The S.C. Department of Health and Human Services, one of the largest, costliest agencies in state government, pays Clemson University´s Social Analytics Institute $50,000 a year to "scrape data" from 150 million public, real-time feeds each day and report back to the agency what people on the Internet are talking about. That includes Medicaid patients who may be complaining about the application process on Twitter or bloggers who criticize Gov. Nikki Haley´s decision to reject Obamacare´s Medicaid expansion. But they say they´re doing this "social listening" in the name of customer service,

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

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

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

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)

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

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

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

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.
