An Open Letter to Oprah (Of Barack and Barry)

Via Cousin John

 “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.”

No, Oprah. In all sincerity I disrespect Obama for the same reason I disrespect you… because he is not worthy of respect.

Hard as it is to believe, in some circles of this great and glorious land we call “America,” there are people who think for themselves. These are those who don’t wait for some overpaid, egocentric talk-show host to tell them what to believe, what to think, or how to vote. They are the countless millions who expect others to take responsibility for themselves and their own families.

You see, we grew up in a time when there was no Oprah show to tell us we were poor, downtrodden, mistreated and abused.

Instead, we had to shoulder both trial and tragedy with no one to blame for our state but the man in the mirror. If we succeeded or if we failed, it was because of something we had done, not the color of our skin. There have been many in America of every race who were born into truly poor and terribly disadvantaged homes, yet succeeded wildly.

  1. Oprah, of course I have disrespect for you and Barry. To the point, you and him have not earned my respect. I disrespect you for promoting the very very racism that you denounce and condem. You would NOT have your fame and fortune had it not been for all the white people who watch your TV show and bought your O magazine. I refuse to feel guilty for what criminal acts black people do, what drugs they take, how sexually promiscuous they are, or their refusal to educate themselves or their children. If blacks want a better life and a better community then they must do the following: finish high school, get a job and don't quit it unless it is for a better paying job, dont make babies out of wedlock.
    As for this so called president, of course I have no respect for him. The reason is very very simple; he lied to me (and the American public) and continues to lie. And if you continue to support and defend him because he is half black, then that makes YOU, Oprah a racist.
