So…Oprah Got Dissed By The Swiss!

And?

Frankly speaking; I really do not have any sympathy for her at all.

This wasn’t the first time this has happened to her.

While in Switzerland for Tina Turner’s wedding, apparently Oprah went shopping.  She stopped in to a little shop and asked to see a very expensive hand bag.  The clerk refused to let her see it, inferring and stating to her: “that one is too expensive for you.”

Joke of the year, right?

Oprah has the Black Card and could have bought not only that store, but most of the shops in that area.

Well, Oprah talked about it to the media and it has now blown up.

I listened, but it had about as much impact on my life as the news of cave bats becoming extinct.

Yes.  It was a terrible misunderstanding but she’s OK.  And now that the clerk knows who she dissed; what is the world supposed to do because Oprah was treated the same way millions of Black people experience every single day?

Just recently, I had a friend tell me that when she was vacationing in Orlando; she and her daughter visited a Neiman Marcus store.  While there, she indicated that the entire time they were in the store; they were followed around the store.  She was so offended, she walked out.

What galls me about Oprah claiming racism is the subtle form of it that she projects onto Black people when choosing to hire for her companies.  And people know that it was standard for white producers on The Oprah Winfrey Show to be the largest majority at Harpo Studios.  Don’t even get me started on the obvious Blackout of her Own network.  It was glaring.  Link:  http://brotherpeacemaker.wordpress.com/2007/09/10/oprahs-hiring-practices/

So, as far as I’m concerned; Oprah Winfrey needs to be quiet.

She got dissed.

Live with it.

    Loooooool! This is what she deserves, I also realized she only hires white ppl. And did anyone see how the white girls in the audience reacted when she came out a long time ago and she lost weight. So many women weren’t happy about it until she put the weight back on. Smh, she’s just mammy. I’ve seen many curvy black girls be put in her place loved by all the white women to tell jokes and make them feel better for themselves. While they give women like me evil looks, I thought something was personally wrong with me…now I see why. Even the guys treat her like sister and asexual.

      hunglikejesus,

      That is not her work, yts control everything that goes on the O network for a yt audience ONLY. Unfortunately, Our People watch because they are conditioned and do not realize it.

  3. Why did she not address the prostitution of African women in Switzerland while she was there? That would have made a big impression on me. Instead she picks a fight with a white CLERK from a white store. She has a PA for that kind of stuff. Sigh.

      No Black Pete,

      As a celebrity, Oprah is under someone’s control. She opened that Academy for Girls in South Afrika. In Amerikkka, where We need better schools for Our Children, she looks away. Why would she open a school for My Sistas in South Afrika only? How disrespectful to Our Young Men living there.

      I hate to say this, but she got what she deserved for not supporting and putting up Black Businesses.

        I just realized how stupid I sounded. Oprah is conditioned like a lot of My Afrikans born in Amerikkka are. It’s not her fault that she supports yt businesses. No one should EVER say anything negative about Our People ever.

        I agree.

        Chickens will come home to roost.

        You notice how not many Blacks even responded to the news…

        Very telling, indeed.
