Everyone loves Oprah. At least that’s the way it seems. You have to search high and low to find anyone who doesn’t think highly of the iconic figure that Oprah has become. Her step mother is one exception that has appeared in the media recently. She says that Oprah is mean, controlling and uses her money as a way to show that she is better than other people.
But there are other enemies Oprah has had to face over the years, and she too has had to confront racism up close. This is an old clip from her show, where a guest on the show openly refers to Oprah as a monkey. The racist doesn’t think highly of any black person and is even bold enough to stand on his point, despite having nothing to back his point of view.
When you watch a clip like this, you can see just how racism is such a psychological disease, and that our country hasn’t moved forward as much as we think it has. Also, if there is a monkey in the room, it might be him, since Oprah makes him look kind of silly. Seeing Oprah shut this man down shows you that she didn’t get to be a billionaire by being weak.
What are you thoughts? Has racism died, remained the same, gotten worse, or gotten better? Give us your thoughts.
