Ok Oprah, I understand that even though you have made millions upon millions by branding yourself, you are just lost if you aren't in the limelight. I guess that is why you now have to weigh yourself in on the Trayvon fiasco.
Oprah Winfrey says there is a clear “parallel” between the murders of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955.“In my mind, same thing,” she said.
Let's be clear. Emmett Till was a 14 year old black boy who was killed in Mississippi for flirting with a white woman. From Wikipedia:
Emmett was from Chicago, visiting his relatives in Money, Mississippi, when he spoke to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the married proprietor of a small grocery store there. Several nights later, Bryant's husband Roy and his half-brother J. W. Milam arrived at Till's great-uncle's house where they took Till, transported him to a barn, beat him and gouged out one of his eyes, before shooting him through the head and disposing of his body in the Tallahatchie River, weighting it with a 70-pound cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire.
So Emmett was flirting with a married white woman and was brutally murdered for it. He was beaten and tortured and then shot. Trayvon was the one doing the beating and he got shot. I fail to see the similarity that you speak of Oprah. And During 1955, Mississippi was full of those Southern Democrats, who despised blacks and wanted to keep them under their rule. But stupid, uneducated blacks still vote for these stupid, backwoods democrats because they give them crumbs from time to time. They keep them wallowing in poverty and the blacks just eat it up. If one of their own happens to make it out of that mess, they are immediately ostracized for it, called traitors to their own race. Why? Because they bettered themselves? Well, you just keep on wallowing in the slop, popping out babies from this baby daddy or that one, all the while with your hand stuck out for someone to fill with food stamps, welfare, public housing and free cell phones. But if these are your choices, then shut up about how persecuted you are because of white people. If not for white people, you would have to get up off your lazy ass and grow your own food and raise your own cattle and chickens. That's called hard work.
And as for you Oprah...go ahead and keep fanning the flames of racial divide. Obama didn't get his race war and he won't. Why? Because no matter how tough the little black gangsta wannabes think they are, the white hunters and farmers are better with a gun than they ever could be. We don't shoot sideways. We shoot straight on with a nice scope. If you can try to divide us by race, then so can I. The only difference is, I will include all low life's, not just the black ones. None of you stand a chance against someone with a rational brain. Just crawl back in to your marble lined hole, Oprah. You are old news. And just for future reference. Stop clogging up the sewers in London with your liposuction attempts. The poor people can't take much more. (Fatberg)
