Is Oprah putout over the fact... with all her millions, worldwide fame and contributions... it still boils down to... she’s just another &*@$%$?

Ordinary black folk deal with discrimination on the regular. Many whites and some blacks(mostly wealthy or interracial daters/spouses) believe nowadays racism/discrimination happens seldom or not at all. They believe if and when it does... blacks elicit discrimination with their behavior, lifestyle and appearance.

I believe certain incidents occur for good reasons. Orpah’s Paris “ordeal” is a WORLDWIDE kick in the butt for those who’s heads are stuck in the sand. Hopefully the blow will cause them to acknowledge racism STILL exist for us, NO MATTER WHAT WE ACCUMULATE, ACHIEVE OR WHO WE BECOME!




Any thoughts... anyone?



jus'sayit!

Okay, COCO Butter, should Oprah not complain about racism because she, perhaps, does not experience racism at the level that less notable African Americans??? Isn't that the White Folks stock write-off on racism directed at well-known African Americans??? Are we, now, marching with the KLAN in lockstep against our own??? I say that African people in America are a funny bunch, to say the least, that we would stand implacable in defense of a Little Colored Boy turned white female pedophile, who acknowledges Black people only when he feels he is being cheated outta some money by a white boy, but turn our eyes away from a sister whom I've never seen or heard deny her Blackness...

Frankly, I don't care WHY she is charging racism in this instance... I only know that she's doing something which we've long said, Blacks in her position shoud do more of... Well, she's doing that, and NEGROES DO WHAT NEGROES tend to do, which is turn our backs on brothers and sisters who take corageous stands... When she is dead we will then cry crocodile tears, and acknowledge her bravado...

WHY folks have issues with the sister is something we should be examining... Do we so strongly dislike her because she is a successful African American woman who has cross-over appeal, or because she is dirty filthy rich, or what??? What she did is no different than what Rosa Parks did, which is to say "I will not put up with racism..." It may not have the same impact, or be magnanimously remembered in history books, but it was a bold step considering the possibility that all them White chicks she appeals to might turn and start watching Judge Judy instead of her program...

I think it might be related to envy and jealousy on the part of many of us, but that's beside the point... The point is she challenged an alleged racist act... She should be propped for doing that, not knocked... Beyond that, I am with sister Happy, who said, "who cares?" It aint ThAT big a deal that an incident in PARIS will change much for us here in North America...

Peace!
Isaiah

Good Evening Isaiah,

"should Oprah not complain about racism because she, perhaps, does not experience racism at the level that less notable African Americans???"

did the content of my post convey that?

No person(black or white) should tolerate racism.

I’m not hating on Oprah. I give her MADD props for her accomplishments. What I’m making reference to is... ordimary blacks live face to face with racism and are reminded almost DAILY that the world frowns upon darker hues. Blacks with money and fame are tolerated, til white society slips up and let the cat out the bag... that they’re still #%$$^*@. I can’t speak for anyone but myself on the envy, jealousy issue. I’m not jealous of, nor do I envy anyone’s fame and fortune or ANYONE PERIOD! God favored me and saved my life 2 years ago... that is worth more than all the Oprahs in the world. All I’m saying... WHEN IT COMES TO THE BLACK RACE... ALL THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS and MONEY IN THE WORLD doesn’t make us immune to the stench and ugliness of racism. And the Oprah incident is proof. Perhaps with her worldwide fame, money and the noise made about the ordeal will stir things up for the better.

If she is upset because it’s a racism issue, YES by all means stand up and take a stand, but if its because she didn’t get to shop when she wanted to... then don’t cry racism and involve the whole world. HELL just buy the **** store. (just joking) on the real... handle it with the store owner

:thanks: for responding to the thread

jus'sayit!
