Hello Family, I had heard on the news a few times, how Oprah felt she was discriminated against because she's Black, by a store in Paris. Word is, she was going to buy a watch for Tina Turner, but they would not accommodate her! Do they not know who Oprah is?!! Let me say, this is not a "Bash Oprah Thread" because i love our Sister, but it just goes to show, money aint no nuff ... not all the time anyway. . . Here's the story: Oprah Suggests Paris Boutique Boot Was Racially Motivated PARIS -- Oprah Winfrey is suggesting that she was turned away from a ritzy store in Paris because she's black. Winfrey showed up at Hermes after-hours, wanting to buy a gift. Employees refused to re-open just for her. "Hermes regrets not having been able to welcome Madame Oprah Winfrey and the people accompanying her to give them all the attention and service that Hermes is committed to giving each of its clients in the world," the store said in a statement Tuesday. The store added that it was closed for a public relations event and couldn't re-open, and expressed "its sincere regrets for any misunderstanding that these circumstances could have caused." But Winfrey sees it as a racial incident. A spokeswoman is calling it a "Crash" moment. "Crash" is a movie about racism. The spokeswoman said Winfrey will talk about it on her talk show when it returns in the fall. http://www.local6.com/entertainment/4645541/detail.html . .
