Oprah Decries Americans’ Ignorance on Civil Rights, Laments ‘Millions’ of Blacks Lynched

In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement:

“They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.”

Historians at the Tuskegee Institute estimate that approximately 3,446 African-Americans were lynched from 1882-1968.

    So glad Orka got “unchained” when Barry was elected. Shame how an untalented old gal like her has been chained down and oppressed while gaining hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Dave, the only slaves I’ve heard of recently are the ones owned by Saudi royalty. You know, the Saudis Obama feels he must bow down for.

    Far more white Americans have been murdered by blacks than blacks ever lynched in the US. The left sure loves its fables and lies… When I see how much the left wins with their scummy ways, I sometimes can’t help but wish that a Texas size asteroid would smash into the planet. Sure, I’d die, but so would they… And they would try to lie their way out of it… And be shocked to realize they couldn’t.

    Between Congressman Major Owens’ 200 million (video clip earlier) and Orka’s millions lynched, no wonder they discontinued slavery – inventory control problem.

    Oprah honey, would you be so kind as to exhibit one black lynched by a white in the last 30 years? Forty? Fifty? Cuz I can show you thousands of whites who’ve been killed by blacks. And just for the heck of it, would you like me to show you how many blacks have been killed by other blacks in the last 50 years? One more thing Oprah, how many millions of black women have gone to Planned Parenthood to execute their babies, knowing white tax payers would get stuck with the bill?

    Don’t challenge Oprah to go back fifty years, Judge, cause she can point to one lynching 49 years ago, which is the last recorded lynching. In Oprah’s 59 yrs of life, there have been five.

    In the same time period, the number of blacks murdered by other blacks or poisoned by crack or by diseases that come from shooting drugs like crack which was provided by black drug dealers is probably close to half a million.

    yet Oprah thinks the most horrible that’s happened to blacks in her lifetime is white lynchings. As I recall, in my family, you weren’t allowed to think anything even remotely as ridiculous as that after the age of seven

    Anyone who publishes their OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) magazine and puts only their image on it every month has got psych issues. Additionally, it’s no big secret that she was an acolyte of Jerry Wright’s black liberation church until her advisors told her to quit or face ratings problems with white housewives. She is openly racist and proud of it.

    And besides, she refused to have Sarah Palin on her show in ’08 — that was after she dubbed barry soetoro “The One” and spoke of herself as a “king-maker.”

    She must believe all those honorary doctorates from commencement speeches gave her a brain by osmosis. Or something.

    Orcah campaigned for, funded, and in a major way helped to elect the traitorous, half-white Preezy, on account of his skin color alone and despite his lack of resume and references.

    Eat caca and assume your final fetal position O,
    despite your wealth, you could never possibly repay the nation for the damage you’ve done to it via Zero and his mooch.

    Ingrateful ugly POS.

    My brother has done extensive genealogy on our family. We came from Scotland, Wales, and Germany. He has yet to find a single slave holder.
    And even if he did, I am not responsible, nor will I feel guilty for, the actions of people who have been dead for 150+ years. This is America. The son is not liable for the actions of the father.
    I feel no white guilt because I don’t come from slave holders, and I would take up arms to prevent slavery, unlike the current crop of black politicians who are encouraging it. Watching them become what they say they hate is kind of fun though. None of You People have been, or ever will be, a slave so STFU, grow up, and get a life.

    Hey Oprah, have you spent any money helping to identify and preserve the countless slave grave yards in the South? Bet you haven’t. Bet you don’t give a gnat fart either.
