    An Open Letter to Oprah Winfrey 

    Dearest Oprah:

    I heard about your comments to the BBC about how racist we are against President Obama.  Many “hate” President Obama simply because he is black.  Well I don’t “hate” President Obama at all.  While I have seen him in person on a few different occasions, I have never actually met the man.  It is very hard to “hate” someone who you never actually have met.

    What I do despise are his policies and I, for the life of me, don’t get his worldview.  That somehow I am responsible for the saving of the collective soul of America.  That no matter what I do for charity I am still somehow not doing it the right way, because I am saying that it isn’t the responsiblity of the government.  I have always respected your works towards charity.  You should be an inspiration to many around the world because you have taken what you have been so blessed to earn and use it to help those less fortunate.  If it were up to Obama you would paying a much higher tax rate and the government would be taking care of it.  Well, attempting to anyway.  You would have far less to give away those free cars.  Remember those, the ones that people were so upset about when they found out they had to pay “taxes” on?

    Another thing that has left me scratching my head in your statements is you.  You happen to be one of the richest black women in the country.  Did you get any of that money from the white people who are so racist that they “hate” President Obama?  I mean how could you have become so successful and rich beyond your wildest dreams if this is such a racist country?  For that matter how did this racist, horrible country elect a black man that they “hate” not just once, but twice?  It blows the mind, I mean how can that happen?

    I stopped watching your talk show years and years before you decided to move onto other things.  But one of the interviews I did watch was when you interviewed President Bush after his book was released.  One of the things that struck me at the time was your utter lack of knowledge that President Bush couldn’t just order the National Guard in Katrina, well at least not without violating the law.  I guess you have forgotten the hate and the vitriol that surrounded President Bush and the cries of racism about killing the black man in NOLA.  Were the people who did this racist against white men?  Was it liberal “white guilt” that propelled the calls of Fascism and the Hitler mustaches?

    I have thought long and hard about the question if this country was ready for a black president.  I have long ago come to the conclusion that the answer is no.  But I would suggest to you that you are part of the reason why.  Simple dissent of any policy initiative against this president is called racist.  You don’t like Obamacare, raaaaacist.  You didn’t like the spending of almost a trillion dollars of borrowed money in a so-called stimulus package, raaaaacist.  You were against Cash for Clunkers, raaaaacist.  You have a problem with the debt almost doubling in the time that President Obama has been in office, raaaaacist.  I can only assume that President Obama has been perfect, has yet to make any mistakes, and deserves no criticism whatsoever.  Heck, there is even republican/conservative “cord words” now.  Who knew?  I mean if you are a supporter of the 10th amendment, you want Jim Crow and slavery to be reinstated in this country.  Didn’t we just get a lesson on state rights just yesterday with President Obama’s “fix” to the millions of people who are losing their health insurance?  The insurance industry is one of the most heavily regulated in the country.  The states will have to grant exemptions for them in order for the  “If you like your plan, you can keep it. period.” promise.  It isn’t as simple Obama’s magic wand!!!!  Imagine that, Oprah.  He isn’t omnipowerful.  He can’t, just with a stroke of the pen, change laws and regulations.  Those state laws about insurance regulations must be raaaaacist too.

    I will concede that people in this country are still racist.  I will further concede that it has real world effects on some people’s lives.  What I hope that you will also concede is that “many” of the opposition that is there towards your good buddy, President Obama, is the normal political process in this country and it isn’t unique to him.  It is actually a testament to how far we have come.  But people like you and the Sharpton all blacks are a victim crowd, can’t seem to accept that.  It must be racist.  What else could it be?

    I have to wonder Oprah, were you this quick to cry racism when Clarence Thomas was attacked in the hearings for his seat on The Supreme Court?  Did you cry out for Presidential Nominee Herman Cain?  Do you weep for Allen West and the racism he faces when he gets called an Uncle Tom and a race traitor?  I am not sure I have ever seen those statements from you.  Did I miss something?  Maybe I did.  I don’t follow you all that closely anymore.  I can’t imagine why that this Oprah.  Oh, it must be raaaaacism.

      It is unfortunate many voted like Samuel Jackson who said simply:
      “ I don’t know or care about his(Obama) politics, I am voting for him b/c he is black!”
      How soon do all people, especially black people (pro-Obama supporters), forget the words of Martin Luther King:
      “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

      Jamie Foxx Calls Obama … the messiah
      Oprah called Obama … the ONE.

      White Guy Wins Election After Leading Voters to Believe He’s Black

      Wins Election After Leading Voters to
      Dave Wilson chuckles as he talks about his unorthodox political campaign. “I’d always said it was a long shot,” Wilson says. “No, I didn’t expect to win.” Still, he figured he’d have fun running, because he was fed up with what he called “all the shenanigans” at the Houston Community College System. As a conservative “white guy” Republican running in a district whose voters are overwhelmingly black Democrats, the odds seemed overwhelmingly against him. Then he came up with an idea, an advertising strategy that his opponent found “disgusting.” If a white guy didn’t have a chance in a mostly African-American district, Wilson would lead voters to think he’s black.

    O+O=O 

    Oprah Winfrey, the “Queen of Talk” who built an empire on the gullibility and ignorance of the American housewife, has called on critics of The Child Emperor to “show some level of respect.”

    Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the perpetually pudgy prima donna said, “I feel that everybody has a learning curve, and I feel that the reason why I was willing to step out for him was because I believed in his integrity and I believed in his heart.”

    This is the same woman who “felt conned” by author James Frey who admitted that he lied and embellished events about himself and other characters in his best-selling book about substance abuse and recovery, “A Million Little Pieces”.  The book was endorsed by Winfrey in 2005 who later said, “It’s embarrassing and disappointing for me.”

    This is also the same woman who embraced Eckhart Tolle’s book, “A New Earth”, a self-help book combining psychology and spirituality considered to be “religion light”.  So caught up in its half-truths and half-fabrications was Winfrey that she was challenged by members of her television audience for a New Age worldview that includes the belief that there is no sin, no evil, no devil, and that God is “in” everyone and everything.

    Snopes.com includes a YouTube® video in which Winfrey denies Jesus Christ in the “mind-training” she espoused.

    I’m certain to catch flack from those who still think the woman who needs help carrying her ego around is a wonderful talk show host and philanthropist, but I’ve never had much use for her bunkum.  I guess it’s because my moral compass doesn’t need adjusting by the likes of a woman who hasn’t been entirely truthful in her lifetime.

    We told you “The One” wasn’t ready to be president. We told you he didn’t have the skill sets, the experience.  We told you he would be in over his head and we were right.

    Learning curve?  Oprah, sweetie, it’s been two years.  I do believe the learning curve has run its course.  Stop your whining already.

      Right on! Oprah is not as relevant as she’d like to think she is and everyone except her most ardent and deluded hardcore fans stopped paying attention to her when she started her full blown hopeychangey Barry shilling. Barry has no respect for this country or the people he is supposed to be working for, I don’t think he has respect for anything at all, he certainly does not deserve MY respect.

      “Okra” has no right to command respect. The cardinal rule is respect must be earned. I’ve seen nothing in either egomaniac that deserves my respect. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

      Spot on! Oprah and libs have dropped the learning so low that I’m not sure there is a learning curve anymore (at least for the leftists who watch the show). Oprah is a leader of idiots and thinks that she’s all that, when she’s not. BO hates this country. He is a cultural Muslim, Marxist buffoon who is working to “transform” this country into his utopian dreamland, working to destroy the Republic and subvert the constitution which he took an oath to uphold and defend. BO doesn’t deserve respect. America deserves respect and honor. To honor, respect, and save America from tyranny we need to boot his sorry butt out of Office.

      Oprah herself doesn’t bother me. I actually respect some of the things she has done in her life. I especially like when she was honest about that school she opened in Africa and said that many in this country don’t respect the need for education. Sadly, that is a true statement and it took bravery for her to say it.

      But, I certainly wouldn’t take her advice on who to vote for. Nor would I take it from any other talk show host; including those on the right. I suppose that many agree with me when you consider how much her ratings dropped after she did it.

      I also completely disagree with the premise that she helped get him elected. He rode the I Hate Bush wave to perfection all the way to shore. The country was tired after Bush and wanted something different and the GOP nominee in way offered that alternative.

        You mean Oprah’s scandal racked school in South Africa where they keep assaulting and molesting each other?

        And since when has it been brave or even unusual to espouse respect for education?

        The value of education is solely based on what’s being taught. The value of Pan-African Studies departments’ educations is questionable– to put it mildly.

          Yukio:
          Yes, there have been issues at that school, but they were handled immediately. The truth is she could have put that much money and more into a school into this country and it wouldn’t have changed anything. To come out and say that many Americans don’t value education the way that they should did to take bravery. At least to me.

          • Yukio Ngaby 6:16 AM on 02/13/2011 Permalink | Reply

            There have been molestation issues by house mothers that were “handled.” Violence is still very much an issue there. Go through the archives of some South African papers and you’ll find instances of student violence that are disturbing.

            Oprah’s vague statements are both common and useless. It’s not unusual to rag on Americans for not valuing education. It happens all the time in universities and just around town where I live.

            While there is a need for schools (among many other things) all through Africa, tossing in some overly generalized and useless jibe at American culture is hardly brave. A problem in parts of the US now is over-education.

            If she were actually brave she might want to talk about something specific. Perhaps the way in which Black Americans don’t value “inauthentic White” education as exemplified by the Shaker Heights study (and well known by anyone acquainted with the American Black community). Bringing that issue up would have been brave on a couple of levels and might actually help the issue by acknowledging its existence. But that’s not coming from Oprah.
