    Oprah Winfrey, one of the wealthiest people in the world, is throwing the race card again.
    During an interview with the BBC Friday, she not only said that President Obama is treated with disrespect because he’s black, but also that entire generations of racists are going to have to die for racism to end (video follows with transcript and commentary):
    WILL GOMPERTZ, BBC: The issue of the civil rights movement, and the way that black people around the world are treated, particularly I suppose in, around the world…
    OPRAH WINFREY: Around the world.
    GOMPERTZ: Around the world. Look at place like Russia, it’s, you know…
    WINFREY: Around the world.
    GOMPERTZ: So is this, is this, I suppose from a movie point of view, what the movie and the messages hold and the other movies we were discussing, and “Scottsboro Boys,” are these historical comments or are we still looking at a contemporary issue?
    WINFREY: Good question. Well phrased. Good job. It would be foolish to not recognize that we have evolved in that we’re not still facing the same kind of terrorism against black people en masse as was displayed with the Scottsboro boys. It’s gotten better. Are there still places where people are terrorized because of the color of their skin, because of the color of their black skin? Yes. But there are laws that have allowed us to progress beyond what we saw in the Scottsboro boys and beyond the even the prejudice we see in “The Butler.”
    Notice that Winfrey added "color of their black skin." Why not just leave it as "color of their skin?"
    Why do folks such as her only see racism through the prism of how blacks are treated? By looking at the problem so narrowly, doesn't it make matters worse?

    What these people don't get and refuse to believe is that if you could shuffle the gene pool in the US so that everyone is a racial mutt in proportionate degrees, and if you were to cancel our national debt and divide our national wealth equally between all American citizens, within sixty years we would have wealth, subsistence, and poverty. Within 60 years we would have people sorting themselves into groups, and marrying within their own group creating new racial/ethnic distinctions.

    We really can just look around the world for examples. Brazil is a favorite. I don't know how they decide who is white and who is black in Brazil, but the Cubans and Puerto Ricans have been drawing lines where others see a blur for a very long time.

    The shift back would be within five years not sixty, we need only to look at lottery winners for proof of this.

    Not just lottery winners, look at professional athletes. There are players who get multi million dollar contracts who end up broke. MC Hammer is another example.
    The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

    Easy money goes fast but with the athletes they often have to earn it, they surprise me, young and stupid I guess.

    Hmmm, as in the "Knock-Out Game"...........nobody seems to mention that so far it's exclusively a black-on-white crime that frequently ends in murder.

    Media Finally Reports on Fatal Knock-Out Game – Forgets to Mention the Black Mobs Behind the Attacks

    (snip)

    More Proof That Political Correctness Kills–
    The media is finally reporting on the wave of “knock-out” attacks sweeping the nation.
    But won’t report on the race of the perpetrators – even if it means saving lives.

    (snip)

    But the corrupt won’t report that the perpetrators are black youths.
    It’s not politically correct… or racist… or something…

    Do you envy her money, size or masculinity?
