There are still generations of people, older people…..and they just have to die. – Oprah Winfrey
HOLLYWOOD-In a 2013 interview about racism, daytime television diva Oprah Winfrey who the left is now calling the future President of the United States said there’s an entire generation of people who were born and bred in the south that “Just have to die”.
Even the online liberal media “fact checker” Snopes admits she said it, but of course, she didn’t quite say it that way.
“Of course the problem is not solved. As long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, the problem’s not solved. As long as there are people who still…” the television talk show host said. “And there’s a whole generation — I said this for apartheid South Africa, I said this for my own community in the South — there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.”
Apologetic Snopes said Winfrey’s comments were not racist, nor was her demand for the death of generations intended JUST for white people.
“However contentious and impolitic it may have been for Winfrey to claim that older generations steeped in prejudice will have to die before the problem of racism can be solved, the objection that it was racist of her to say so is absurd,” Snopes concluded.
“It’s valid, given the context, to infer that the majority of the people Winfrey was talking about are white, but invalid to infer that her remarks targeted all older white people, or only older white people,” Snopes continued to drivel.
This is where the media, if she was a white, male, Republican would denounce Winfrey as the next Adolf Hitler, but they won’t.
