Oprah does a heck of a lot for people. She's not what I'd call stingy. I applaud her for her generosity, and I applaud her for not letting others make her feel guilty for having attained such success.

yeah, but do you think Oprah and her rich black kin would once just come out and say "I AM SO GLAD THAT MY ANCESTORS WERE BROUGHT TO AMERICA BECAUSE AMERICAN BLACKS ARE FAR BETTER OFF THAN ANY OF THEIR RACE IN AFRICA".....

no....we won't hear the blessings of being born an American.....

she is not the worse of course, but she still slips things into her program about how bad off and dissadvantaged her race is ......

and I'll bet she is all for more taxes on me and my working stiffs so the likes of her don't have to pay anymore....

and, IF it was brought up that from now on, ALL INCOME would be fully taxed for social security, .....well, we would see her true colors right away....IMO

I disagree. People should feel good about themselves if they have something to feel good about. Oprah tries to get people to delude themselves into feeling good about themselves without doing anything else tangible. She is the queen of feel good. I think feeling bad about yourself is the first step to wanting to change something for the better.
