Black critics and lawmakers alike blasted Oprah Winfrey for a video that went viral on Tuesday in which Oprah claims black people are victimized by a white caste system.
BIZARRE LECTURE FROM A BILLIONAIRE
Oprah is starting to believe her own nonsense.
The viral video, part of Winfrey’s series “The Oprah Conversation,” featured Oprah encouraging white guests to admit to their racism. She insisted that all white people have a “leg up” because of their skin color.
The latest episode of the AppleTV+ series, which featured activist and former NFL player Emmanuel Acho, spoke with white guests about topics such as whiteness, white privilege, and racism.
During the episode — titled “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1” — Winfrey said, “There are white people who are not as powerful as the system of white people — the caste system that’s been put in place — but they still, no matter where they are on the rung, or the ladder of success, they still have their whiteness.”
]White privilege is racist and it’s a myth.]
“[Whites have a] leg up,” she insisted. “You still have your whiteness. That’s what the term ‘white privilege’ is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter. It is the fundamental issue.”
[No, it isn’t. The fundamental issue is Oprah is a racist.]
Oprah is worth $2.7 billion. She is the richest black woman in the world, yet she still thinks poor white people have more advantage than she does because of their “whiteness” pic.twitter.com/g4rNTq1tZj

Billionaire Oprah says it’s important for Americans to realize that “the system of white people” continues to keep Black citizens off “the ladder of success.”
No, she is one of the people keeping them off the ladder of success by making them into helpless victims. They are as smart, talented, able as anyone and she’s telling them whites have a caste system that will keep them down.
Billionaire Oprah lectures the rest of us:
"You still have your whiteness. That's what the term 'white privilege' is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter.”
What utter, racist BS. https://t.co/02PADVJkrZ

So billionaire #OprahWinfrey is lecturing poor white farmers and truck drivers about “white privilege.” I wonder if she would be willing to trade places with them. I think I know the answer to that one

Oprah Winfrey says being White “gives you an advantage no matter what.”
Oprah was born DIRT poor, raped as a child, worked HARD, and became an American ICON worth BILLIONS.
Why is a victimhood and inferiority complex her message to Black Americans?
