Oprah is incredibly good at what she does. Her real friends are not Tom Cruise or John Travolta or Ellen. Not even Megs and Harry. Not Diane Sawyer or Mary Tyler Moore or all the other white people who were some of her favorite. Celebrities. Guests. They were invited to the ball, not for luncheon at home.
Not her friends. Oprah remains quite neutral. She supports her own and those she admires. She really is quite a remarkable interviewer, because she can honestly admire talent and strengths, without ever letting on she doesn't like the person. Oprah thinks that Streisand is rediculous and missing a chip, but she appreciates her talent and position. (publically) Oprah was not impressed with the behavior of Jennifer Hudson, for example. (it's a long story) But that did not stop her from helping her win an Oscar or supporting her during her tragic family murders. Or crying when JHud sang at her Kennedy Center Tribute. Oprah would prefer Fantasia though.
Oprah does LOVE Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts. As people and friends. For real. And she loved John Tesch, biblically.
Oprah is a competent and most accomplished woman. Brilliant at business and rich beyond measure. She relaxes with who she likes. Folks.

My dad was African American and born in 1941 in the segregated south (he passed a few years ago). It was a fucking nightmare. He always distrusted white people, and I can’t say that I blamed him. His great grandfather was born a slave. He attended segregated schools, and couldn’t go into the white part of town. He got sent to Vietnam with his other high school friends, and 90% of them didn’t come home. He equated the gay rights movement with the civil rights movement for black people. He attended pride with me in Minneapolis in the early 2000’s. Older black people have a reason to distrust white people.

I don’t care if people like black people or white people or whatever. Just treat everyone with respect.
There was a black woman on her cell phone at CVS today. She was all worked up about the people “up here” (Upper East Side) who have entitlement issues and they talk down to her. Well, I know exactly who she’s talking about and I dislike them, too. I wanted to go up to her and tell her that, and to say that they do it to other white people, and it’s not just because she’s black. (Although some of them probably have that motivation.)
But I am a prosperous-looking white middle-aged person from “up here” and she’d probably think I was crazy. If a black person told me “hey, we’re not all like that guy over there”, I’d say “I know. You don’t have to say that.”
Oprah is probably nice to the people who count, no matter what color they are. She’s smart.

Hudson won the Oscar BEFORE the defying Oprah incident.
For those who don't know. Hudson arrived in Chicago did a rehersal for the next day's show then flew to Texas or someplace to sing. Her plane was late getting back the next day so Oprah had a studio audience in line with no guest for the show. (this was when she was doing a behind the scenes thing on OWN)
Oprah went out and explained the situation and her staff tried to keep the people occupied. When Hudson finally arrived she had to go into Oprah's office for a lecture (which they didn't show.)

Even with all her success, Oprah probably still encounters a fair amount of racism, so she probably understands the perspective of someone like Meghan Markle, regardless of what she actually thinks of Megs as a person. I'm guessing that Oprah doesn't have a problem with white people, but also realizes that pervasive racism exists even in exclusive circles, whether people want to acknowledge it or not. As far as the Harkles go, I'm guessing her support of them has more to do with Diana than those two

I don’t blame any black person for mistrusting or disliking white people. That said, I dont get that vibe from Oprah. But who knows.
You know, it is interesting—I’m white but have always had friends and neighbors of different races/ethnicities and never thought too much about racism as an immediate concept in everyday life. I dont think about someone as my “black friend Joseph” or my “Asian neighbor Sally.” They’re just Joe and Sally. But, In the last couple years I’ve noticed some of my friends who are POCs making very negative comments about white people and it makes me a little sad because I am sure these feelings have always been there but I just didn’t realize it. Maybe they didnt feel comfortable enough to say anything. I dont know. It makes me sad that they have had negative experiences but it also makes me question whether there can truly ever be real friendship between POC and white people if there is an underlying mistrust or resentment (which goes both ways, of course, with racism on both sides of that equation). It just bums me out.

Anyone who believes that Trump is not racist needs psychiatric support.
And they should be deported.

R103: “I don’t blame any black person for mistrusting or disliking white people.” Hmm, lumping all people of the same race into one group and blindly painting all with the same negative outlook and disdain. There’s a name for that.... it’s right on the tip of my tongue....

Anyone who thinks Trump loves poor or even middle class Americans needs psychiatric help.
Trump would much rather have dinner with Oprah, M Jordan or Kanye than he would with a white middle class nobody. It’s all about fame and money with him.

Racists still eat.
He'd have dinner with them if he wanted something from them but that doesn't mean he won't turn around and call them all kinds of names. (IE. Marge Schott.)
If you still think he isn't racist after the past 4 years: you're a troll, Russian or a jackass.

Well, I wish Jewish men didn’t like [bold]her[bold] so much. My boyfriend would dump me in a New York minute for Oprah.
