Oprah: President Obama disrespected because he's African-American
WLS ^ | 11/15/13

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.

"There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African-American," Winfrey said. "There’s no question about that, and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Oprah has become a race-baiting bully; calling folks racist to hide her own racism evident in her statement. What she does is only to fan the flames of racism, because to call folks racist falsely only makes enemies.

Martin Luther King would not be proud of her.

“There’s no question about that, and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s 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?

"The president's specific words: I'm “really good at killing people,” authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann write"

Now he continues with one of his strengths by turning his attention to killing Americans with his 0DontCare.

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.

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.

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!

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. )

Actually, Ms. Winfrey, the reason I hold the current president in such abominably low regard is that he has done nothing to earn my respect. In fact, he is politically and ideologically incapable of earning my respect. But that's his fault, not mine.

The only generational racism, “born and bred and marinated in it”, that I see is in the black/urban culture.
