Skip to comments.Oprah: President Obama disrespected because he's African-American
Posted on 11/15/2013 8:44:15 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
In a recent interview with BBC News, Oprah Winfrey said that President Obama is disrespected because he is an African-American.
"Theres a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because hes African-American," Winfrey said. "Theres no question about that, and its the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybodys thinking it."
Speaking with the BBC's Will Gompertz in the UK to promote "The Butler," Winfrey also spoke to the global issue of racism.
"It's gotten better. Are there still places where people are terrorized because of the color of their skin, because of the color of their black skin? Yes."

I am so sick of her crap.
I don’t disrespect Obama because he is black. I disrespect him because he is a half-white, Kenyan Muslim who hates this country.
I also don’t respect Oprah because she is a fat-ass overeater with too much money and absolutely no intelligence at all.
No Sweetie——It’s because he is WRONG
Some people seem to be able to find racism anywhere and everywhere. I’ve been seeing the same thing with this Dolphins controversy. The active players specifically said Incognito does not have a race problem, but the older and middle aged commentators on ESPN are laser focused on the race issue, never mind the facts.
Same in politics....we got frustrated with all the false claims of racism the past six years, but it had a very specific purpose.
“...I also dont respect Oprah because she is a....”
* BLACK RACIST *
Then why was Bush 43 disrespected?
Maybe he’s disrespected in part because he acts like some of the worst caricatures of African-Americans and of African dictators. It’s hard not to notice.
He’s half white. Gee, Ohfrah, nobody seems to talk abouth that either. Funny, isn’t it?
Yes, President Obama is the first US President that ever had opposition, or was criticized.
When all is said and done I think Obama will receive credit for maxing out the Race Card.
Oprah, please tell him to take his feet off the presidential desk first.
This b.s. is getting so old.
We all called this reaction before he was elected in 2008. Disagreeing with Obama had nothing to do with his policies - only because he’s black. In short, dissent becomes racist.
I guess Alan West, Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell etc...are all racists?
Yes, let’s ask a billionaire who has been living in a billionaire bubble for so long and whose only contact with the commoner is with estrogen soaked, minivan driving emoticon brain deads. Yes! Let’s ask her about the pulse of the people.
Martin Luther King would not be proud of her.
“Theres no question about that, and its the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybodys thinking it.”
Nobody ever says it? That’s all anyone ever talks about on MSNBC. It’s the rejoinder to literally ever piece of criticism about him. Every single comment section of every major news website is filled with liberals talking about how Obama is only criticized because he’s black. What the hell is Oprah talking about?
I guess George Bush was black too then.
So... GWB was black? He’s the most “disrespected” president that I can remember.
Now he continues with one of his strengths by turning his attention to killing Americans with his 0DontCare.
she’s so full of her self and racism and repressed vitriol, it’s ridiculous.
If you like your black president, you can keep him. NOT
If more people got popped in the mouth for calling others “racist” at the drop of a hat,
we’d have a lot fewer incidents of it, don’t ya think?
There needs to be some immediate consequences for this kind of slander.
If the truth be known, Oprah, alot more voted for this incompetent, secretive idiot BECAUSE of his race
The real racists were you and your ilk and the stupids who were suckered in by this fraud
Black people are going to say that about Obama. It’s BS because a man of any color who is destroying the country should be stopped and I mean stopped right now. If he was the Purple People Eater, which he is, he must be stopped. He is half white anyway and that part that is half white must be stopped. Must be stopped are the operative words, not a color.
That makes sense to me: I mean OBVIOUSLY the reason so many people hated Bush was because he was black too!
Obama may have one drop of Negro blood in him from his grandmother....other than his American mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, Barry is Arab. Is Oprah playing the race card for politics or is she serious?
This dumb broad will never learn.
No sweetie peetie, we disrespect Obama because of his politics, it has nothing to do with his skin pigment.There is no rascism to really speak of in America anymore, sweetie, the nation made you a multi millionaire and elected Obama, so the old swag line that “Its rascist!” just does not work in this case.
Smarten up Oprah and act responsibly, come on gurl, you can do it!
Lets not forget this phony sat in Rev Wright’s church for a good long while, too.
Obama is not disrespected because he Black....he is disrespected because he lies, lies, lies!!! He actually is a total embarrassment to the entire American Black community, as well as the entire nation!!! Any American that holds him (Obama) in high esteem and respect is either drunk, high on drugs, drinking too much Kool-Aid or, just simply insane!!! End of story!!! Oprah...you have seen your best days....no one listens to a word you utter!!!
Boy, this kind of stuff gets old. If the Blacks would stop complaining like this racism would go away. We, and I think I speak for all Freepers, don’t care if Obama is Black, green, pink, orange, White, Hispanic, Hmong, whatever. We DO NOT like his policies and politics. We like many Black leaders and support many Blacks in many positions but, Oprah, still thinks if we don’t like an inexperience socialist president then we’re racist. After the way the Obamas have dissed Orpah I’m surprised she’s still drinking the Kool-Aid.
Close but no banana, Oprah. People don’t dislike O because he’s (supposedly an American) black man. Rather, it is O that is giving black people a bad reputation in America. (Unfair and very unfortunate. I firmly believe we must all fight racial generalizations. But that’s the reality. The negativity flows from O’s anti-American anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti- jobs attitudes and policies. ..... to blacks Not from being black to O. )
Liberals are the least creative, most formulaic closed minded idiots on the planet. Is this the best they got??????
Last week Chris Noth.
Yesterday Olive Stone.
Who’s the dumbass libtard hollyweird to say this tomorrow. do they plan one a day?
Black racists are 100x than the KKK ever was.
So old people should die? Well, don't worry, honey, they will, thanks to your pal, Obama.
Shut up, Oprah...just shut the hell up.
I respect a lot of African Americans. But I have no respect for a lying socialist turd. And Oafra needs to lose some weight and STFU.
She is waning. Sloth and selfish promotion always bring them down. Her word, recommendations and thoughts are meaningless as the Big 0 she calls that channel I have never watched.
Amazingly enough black racism is so much more prevalent that white racism these days.
Typical negro comment. No matter how successful, they still hang on to that victim mentality.
The biggest racist pig in the room in the who yells racism the loudest.
Oprah is a bloated no talent social parasite.
Oprah believes that blacks are inferior and should not be held to the same standards as everyone else.
There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism. And they just have to die.
The only generational racism, “born and bred and marinated in it”, that I see is in the black/urban culture.
