Skip to comments.OPRAH TALKS ABOUT BEING A RECENT VICTIM OF RACISM
Posted on 08/05/2013 10:23:14 PM PDT by South40
While Winfrey may be one of the most recognizable faces on the planet, she apparently doesn't have as big a fan base in Switzerland. Winfrey tells O'Dell that while in Zurich for Tina Turner's wedding she left the hotel to go shopping by herself and was denied service when the clerk assumed that Winfrey wouldn't be able to afford the bag she was asking to see.
When asked if she has ever been called the N-word, Winfrey explained that, for her, sexism seems to be the bigger issue.

Oy. Why didn’t she just buy the joint instead of whining about it?
I didn’t notice any racism in Switzerland,
Don’t you know who I am?
Maybe she couldn’t afford it. Is her network still hemorrhaging money?
It never stops.
I heard Oprah tell the same story several years ago, except it was in Paris.
Oprah: Still relevant
The Swiss never had slaves, so they don’t suffer from White guilt. So, Oprah, you can go KMA.
Oprah must have never heard that old saying, “If you always tell the truth, you don’t have to remember what you said.”
If she wants to experience real racism, let her pay that inflated health insurance bill the rest of us are getting - courtesy of our wonderful Marxist president.
Everyone in America who carries health insurance is getting f*cked by that “African-American” from Indonesia.
Boo Hoo. The end.
How do we know it was the color of her skin and not the projection of ignorance emanating from her fat ugly face?
People who are promoted and successful simply because of their skin color can never be sure. I don’t hear Oprah complaining about that!
Too big to fail...
She runs for President, she loses, media says “America is not ready for a black female President.” We are all branded. Again.
Assuming someone is too poor is not racism, it might be classism or economic profiling but its not racism.
So, shouldn’t the Press be asking for details?
Time and date?
Description of clerk?
The clerk’s side of the story?
The surveillance video?
You’re lying, Oprah.
You lie because you know the Press will never investigate.
I can’t even put into words the contempt if feel towards these “f’n” perpetual “victims”. Screw you Oprah. You want racism ... you have how much money and you still complain?
Nothing will ever change your mind, You see racism under every rock. Well guess what you’re one generating it now. I for one have had my fill of people like you who have had far more chances than me as a white male AMERICAN and yet you still call racism whenever it suits you. Well guess what ... I am NOW a racist. I think people like you are the real racists and I am absolutely tired of your whining. So now I’m at the point where I want you gone ... you and your race baiting buddys like Jackson and Sharpton. Go back to your frigging home land and stay there. I for one don’t want you here screwing up MY country anymore
That's just plain ignorance and proves once again that rich people ain't always the smartest people around!!!
I responded in that thread. The actual number is under 4000. But that wouldn't have gotten the reaction she was looking for so she said it was in the millions.
I can vouch for Germany...if you rounded up 100,000 Germans and asked them who Oprah was or to ID her....99-percent would say Oprah-who. She’s the most unknown character out of the US top 100 in Europe.
Exactly. I know it was just fantasy but Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman was a WHITE woman who was denied service at a store on Rodeo Drive because she looked like a hooker. Clearly not racism. The store in Zurich may have thought Oprah Hogfrey could not afford the item and their treatment of her had absolutely nothing to do with the color of her skin. Libs are always quick to cry racism when they don’t get their way. Even over-paid hogs like Oprah.
I'm just trying to find out what will fulfill their expectations... I just want to make them happy. I'm confused.
In other words the Black on Black murder rate in Chicago alone is higher in a year than the number of Blacks lynched in any given year. Even without extending the Greater Chicago area out to include Gary, Indiana the Chicago area produces more murdered Blacks in a year than the entire Jim Crow South could produce in a year due to non-due-process hangings.
I have had the same treatment when buying expensive gifts for my wife here in the US. I am a male and very white. Who can I cry to?
More likely that O’s salesclerk didn’t like Americans. I’ve experienced that when traveling in Europe. Some will come out and tell you to leave and some just ignore you and won’t serve you. I’ve been in some expensive stores there and was totally ignored, but I’ve also been treated really well. Racism had nothing to do with it.
When I asked him if all those images of the Jews in concentration camps were real he told me not to believe everything I read in our American history books.
I’m sorry, I just don’t f*cking believe her.
I recall Orca went to France and had gone to a fashion store only to find they were closed. Looks like the Obama’s mama was refused in and she cried out racism.
I experienced salesgirl snobbery in Geneva - despite not being underdressed myself. I guess when you’re stuck selling stuff you can never ever afford to rich people you get that way.
While I was in the store someone they called “Princess” came waltzing in - she definitely was not getting the evil eye. I figured she was an Arab from her looks.
Needless to say I saved myself some money by spending nothing in their snotty place.
Yeah, it’s hard to find credibility in anyone who would support a Marxist Kenyan for POTUS simply because they happen to have the same skin color.
Good grief. Oprah is the one of the biggest racists ever.
If they weren’t so lily white they might be....yes I know the place
Many breakfasts in the atrium room at the Bar au Lac
Or strippers with snakes in Old Zurich
Just how big is Vaduz?
I know the area
Like Yankee creepers who south bash here
Live as a minority in a minority majority environ
Then preach to me
Was she wearing a Moo Moo and hiking boots like last time?
I know that racism still exists, but it seems every time a liberal minority doesn’t get what they want, they cry racism. This does nothing but make people feel they “cry wolf” and then when a real racial incident occurs, people don’t look at it as seriously as it may be.
Oprah is yelling racism because some one didn’t sell her a certain item. If the whole world is so racist, she never would have had the money in the first place.
My niece was working at the mall and saving her money to buy a $350 Coach bag. Yeah, I know, she didn’t need it. But she was earning the money herself. She went into the store to see which one she would like when she had the money saved. The sales lady would not let her touch any of the bags. She’s white. Nothing was said of it, although niece wasn’t happy. When she had the money saved, she went in with cash, showed it to them, looked at three bags and bought the one she wanted. No big deal.
An arrogant, ungrateful billionaire who wants to use the tax dollars whitey pays the feral government to bully whitey some more.
She would have fit right in with those big, fat, mean, black lesbians who climbed over the McDonald's counter to give an #%%-whooping to the uppity n-word serving them, only to have him DEFEND HIMSELF.
Big, fat, mean black biotches consider it to be racism when they are prevented from giving #%%-whoopings, especially by an uppity n-word.
A couple of years ago she accused Hermis Department Store in Paris of racism because they refused to open after hours for Oprah and her lover, Gail King to do some shopping at their convenience.
She’s an elitist cow.
More White people have been murdered by blacks since the civil rights act was passed than blacks were lynched post War Between the States and the 1920’s.
The assumption that she couldn’t afford the bag was likely based on how she was dressed rather than the color of her skin.
Total Horse Shoot.
You pull out an Amex Green or a Black Card and they will ring it up, period.
Well if she went shopping by herself the shop must have been in her apartment because she demands to be driven across the street rather than walk.
Shopping or leaving her apartment by herself is nothing but BS.
Who gives a crap? When we start worrying about all races then maybe I will but until then this overwrought sense of emotionalism and whining about blacks is just a big boo hoo.
I think Obama & Oprah know that most people in this country wouldn’t want to be anywhere near them; I wouldn’t open the door if either of them rang.
