Oprah: Not Using N-Word, Harboring Ill Will Towards Black Doesn't Mean You're Not Racist
Breitbart.com ^ | 8-16-2013 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 08/16/2013 8:18:06 PM PDT by servo1969

On Thursday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker, stars of Oscar-bait The Butler. During the interview, in which Cooper thoughtfully nodded as Winfrey and Whitaker race-baited, Oprah suggested Emmitt Till and Trayvon Martin were equivalent symbols, and that Americans were racist even if they didn’t have ill will toward black people. When Cooper cited polls showing that black Americans were upset about Trayvon Martin and whites thought too much had been made of the case, Oprah sighed, “Oh, I know, I know. That’s why I love the film in light of this discussion is because it brings context to this discussion. I mean, look at the film, beginning with that lynching scene and ending with walking into Obama’s office, look at what has happened in the span of one man’s lifetime.”

------------------

Cooper asked, “It’s amazing to me how people from different backgrounds see this.” He then talked about a juror “who did not understand, did not feel linked to Trayvon Martin, felt connected to George Zimmerman in a way, but not Trayvon Martin, she felt race was not part of this case at all.” Oprah couldn’t wait to jump in, blurting, “People don’t feel it’s race because people don’t call it race…A lot of people think if they think they’re not using the n-word themselves, they physically aren’t using the n-word themselves, and do not harbor ill will towards black people that it’s not racist. But to me it’s ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved.”

Burn those bridges, Oprah. You've made all the money you will ever need.

Let all your white fans see who you really are.

There is nothing to even talk about with someone like you.

Being black doesn’t mean you’re not racist either, Oprah.

Screw her.

Enough of this Racist Card BS. It's way past time to call these assholes out and put this BS behind us instead of cowering like little pussies terrified of offending someone, IMO.

It’s time for Oprah and her big mouth to retire. She needs to go home and spend more time with her money. She’s had such a tough life here in America.

Ya know, I never considered myself a Racists, but the more she talks, the more I want to be one.

Emmitt Till and Trayvon Martin were equivalent symbols,

She got that right. Till assaulted a white woman, and Trayvon assaulted an Hispanic man.

She is so full of herself. She thinks she is some kind of a dutchess. She can talk a blue streak about “racism” but what about bearing false witness? She lied and got somebody in trouble to push her stupid self-serving movie. These people disgust me. Oh, I wonder what she has to say about the “racist” rodeo clown. LOL

You’re a racist whether or not you harbor ill will towards blacks or use the n-word. I suppose you might as well start using the n-word since you’re already a racist....

So I guess, according to Oprah - who has never met me and knows absolutely nothing about me - Even though I harbor no ill will towards other races and generally (beyond polite conversation) couldn’t care less about someone’s race ... I’m still racist just because my race is different than theirs. So Oprah is basing her claim solely on my race. Hmm, prejudice and stereotyping based on race. Seems wechave a word for that kind of thing Oprah is doing. Oh yeah, racism. Oprah has shown herself to be provably racist. No surprise.

Just because

You don’t use the “N word”

You don’t harbor ill will to blacks

Neither you nor any of your family members have ever oppressed of exploited a Black person

You treat all people with respect and judge people by content of character and not the color of their skin.

Does not excuse you from being considered a racist.

In order to be not be considered a racist

You have admit to all black people you are a racist deep down ill conceived and carry the collective guilt of slavery and segregation simply because you are a non black American

You must hate yourself because of the above and constantly confess your guilt and remorse for the treatment of Blacks in America despite the fact that you have never participated in any negative behavior towards Blacks

Due to your latent racism you hold Black people back from success and conspire to keep them down whether you realize this or not.

Due to this latent racism, you must always defer to Blacks and provide them with preferential treatment, all the while apologizing for all the things you have never done to oppress Black people but are responsible for regardless.

You must constantly support Black people with entitlements and reparations to make up for the historical oppression of Blacks which neither you nor anyone you know have ever played any part in whatsoever.

I don’t think I was a racist before Doprah started plugging her movie.
But I’m not so sure now. She seems to think I am. Maybe she’s right.

She is still pushing her movie making this latest comment. Which might mean they need help selling The Butler to a public that is saturated with the black race industry hysteria.

Oprah is one of those people whose station in life is vastly disproportionate to her intellect, talent, or achievements. She is a mediocre actress who has made a living basically flapping her yapper and convincing low-brow people that she is some kind of savant and expert on everything.

I don’t even listen to this kind of crap any more - people who have to resort to the race card are impotent when it comes to rational, reasoned discussion, and just trying to get an advantage on others they can’t achieve through facts and logic by appealing to intimidation and guilt - they generally have nothing to say worth listening to....

Not a good way to promote her latest film by alienating a large segment of the population. People who might have spent $10 or more each to see this film will stay away in droves.

In the USA for the last 40 years we've had a situation in which blacks are disproportionally represented at the upper levels of sports and entertainment, and underrepresented in pretty much everything else except crime. Several explanations are available:

1. Blacks are physically superior and intellectually inferior.
2. Blacks are interested in sports and entertainment - and apply themselves in those areas - but have little interest in anything else and therefore don't bother.
3. The white power structure in sports and entertainment is not racist, but the white power structure in all other areas is racist, keeping down qualified blacks.
4a. The public schools - typically under the control of liberal, pro-Democratic administrators - are guilty of the crime of low expectations, and assume blacks cannot learn and so do not try to teach them.
4b. Blacks in public schools are all too often a discipline problem, do not care about learning, and underachieve or drop out, despite the best efforts of teachers and administrators.

So tell me, Oprah, which is it, and what should we do about it?
