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.
