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.

Choc horror: It might be Easter but the

demand in China is outstripping cocoa
bean production and forcing prices up
Daily Mail [UK], by Emma Glanfield    Original Article

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

An investigation into Birmingham schools at the centre of a plot to introduce hardline Islamist teaching has found pupils were illegally segregated and non-Muslim students were discriminated against. [Snip] Department for Education inspectors were ordered into Park View School and its sister schools, Golden Hillock and Nansen, after a letter dubbed ´Trojan Horse´ was uncovered apparently outlining a plot by Muslim hardliners to drive moderate headteachers out of schools. The unsigned and undated letter claimed that a small but radical group of Muslims was pursuing its own agenda in the classrooms, with uncooperative headteachers and governors forced out.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving.

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist.

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
