Oprah Winfrey: Americans Disrespect Obama Because He Is Black

Winfrey told the BBC that President Barack Obama is receiving an unusually high amount of “disrespect” due to his skin color.

There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.

Maybe Murdoc’s just a dumb ol’ whiteboy, but he thinks every time someone talks about Obama’s race being why everyone doesn’t love him, the hope for true racial equality in America gets set back about five years.

  1. I don’t pay much attention to anything Oprah says. There is however some truth in her words as to why people hate him, many people do not like him because of his race or part of it. I on the other hand have a much better understanding of what he has done and who he is, he’s no different than any other president. He’s not as liberal as people make out, he stuck towing the party line which is one of the most un-American I have ever seen. I will also say the same for the Republican agenda. I won’t dispute which is worse they are both tragic for the American people. Obama did many things he did not want to do of that I am sure, remember he’s not stupid, far from it. Like Bush before him, he too did so many things he knew was wrong. People are naive, all Presidents answer to their party and their party answers to the people that give them money. Nothing happens without the OK from these ultra rich and powerful people and groups. To blame Obama for all the woes of this country is childish and naive. It shows the frustration of the people who do, understandable. But lets point the finger at the true culprit here, that 2% that think the world is theirs and have no true allegiance to this country or it’s people. The only thing ever to come out of that idiot Trump’s mouth was to explain how those people think on national TV. They truly believe they are part of a world economy and even though they have American citizenship they hold in contempt the average American. They look down at us and think of us as their slaves, put here to make them more rich and powerful. They do not care about us, we are like a herd of cows for their consumption. The more we blame people like Obama the more they get away with their dirty deeds. The more we as a people are divided the more they can do their dirty work and enslave us. Keep them laughing at us and keep blaming Obama or wake up and turn your attention to the true terrorists, the ultra rich. I have no problem with them being rich, I have a problem with them when they want to have the cake and the crumbs too, at least leave us the crumps. As Huey Long alluded to, share the wealth. Open up your eyes and mind, if you think it’s Obama doing all this you are part of the problem. Obama is part of the problem, he is not the problem. Obama like so many who start off with good intentions to make things better they quickly learn that Washington DC is not about the people and never was.

    1. I’d upvote you but this is not reddit. My simple explanation for dislike:
      (no particular order)
      1. Not an old whiteman(tm)
      2. Outsider, ie not part of the politcal club
      3. Funny Name
      4. Too Liberal
      5. Not Liberal Enough
      6. Analytic personality…not given to necessary schmoozing.

      Probably should be considering reasons for likability too. but I got other things to do.

  2. No question in her tiny negroid mind, but you see (even by obama, but mostly by detroilet) how well those minds work. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’d default to considering him wrong just because of his defective genetics (especially the way he rejects his good side) even if he had the most minuscule but detectable competence, but he doesn’t. Race is so far down the list of my objections to this groid that even as much of a racist as I actually am, I don’t even need to go there to oppose him utterly.

  3. Oprah is stupid. She is also wrong. Obama is not black, nor is he white. He is a mulatto. The blacks choose to ignore his white side though, which is a unique form of racism all in itself. From a group who one would think would be particularly aware of the evils of racism, yet practice it as regularly as anyone else.

    1. A guy I knew active duty was married to a white woman from South Africa.

      Once she was naturalized that would have made her, strictly speaking, African-American.

      So, yeah.

    2. By the way, unless you are an African who came to America, there is no such thing as African American.

      That is not the way works. For example, we have several million Irish Americans and Italian Americans who were born in the USA. Yet they are still Irish or Italian American. Ditto for the broader category of European Americans, Asian Americans, etc.

  4. So let me get this straight….if a person is black, then he can be arrogant, a card-carrying socialist, totally clueless about economics, lie to the American public he swore to represent, destroy the constitution he swore to uphold and defend, drive the majority of Americans to wreak and ruin thru Obamacare, and basically be an all around jackass, and nobody can call him on it.

    But if he’s white, he’s fair game and all bets are off.

    Oprah has her head in the up and locked position, probably because she likes the warmth.
