Noticeably absent from the speaker line-up at the Let Freedom Ring event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington today: the nation’s only black Senator, Tim Scott. … African-American leaders who did receive an invitation to speak at included Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) – who participated in the original March – Martin Luther King III, MSNBC host Al Sharpton and movie stars Jamie Foxx, Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker.
Senator Scott likely would have been invited, if those putting this thing together gave a damn about MLK’s legacy or his dream. What a joke!
I will confess the first time I heard Oprah’s self-pitying, I thought it sounded contrived. Maybe I tend to be a bit skeptical when a Liberal screams RAAAAACISM because the Left sees racism everywhere. Now, the clerk is saying that Oprah is a big fat liar
Winfrey says the clerk refused to show her an expensive item because she assumed a woman of color wouldn’t have the means to afford it.
That’s a lie, the anonymous sales clerk says according to the UK Daily Mail, adding she’s felt “powerless” as a result of the media barrage following the incident.
I explained to her the bags came in different sizes and materials, like I always do.
‘She looked at a frame behind me. Far above there was the 35,000 Swiss franc crocodile leather bag.
‘I simply told her that it was like the one I held in my hand, only much more expensive, and that I could show her similar bags.
‘It is absolutely not true that I declined to show her the bag on racist grounds. I even asked her if she wanted to look at the bag.
First off IF Oprah’s version is true, and she is not just playing the victim to gain some publicity, which i think she is, are we really supposed to feel badly for Oprah? Tell you what Oprah I will GLADLY be a “victim” if I can have your money, OK? Hell I have been followed in a store, stopped at a mall by security once, and was even told at a bookstore I could not thumb through a magazine, it happens. should it happen? In a perfect world no, but happen it does, to people of ALL races, so Oprah, please take your “Victim of Racism Card” and stick it! I bet you might even be able to use a few hundred-dollar bills to dry your tears. I wonder if Oprah ever wonders how a poor victimized Black woman EVER got to be a multi-BILLIONAIRE in RAAAAACIST America?
BTW, heard on CNN today at work that Oprah is now saying the incident was overblown. In other words Oprah lied!
So, what if a man went to the Arctic Circle to write about how the Polar bear population was being decimated by global warming, only to find out that Polar Bears are more numerous than in the 1970’s? Clearly this can be nothing more than a seething hatred for Al gore. This man Zac Unger clearly does not want Gore to eke out a living by travelling the globe in private jets to tell people the Polar Bears are vanishing!
Author Zac Unger was originally drawn to the arctic circle to write a “mournful elegy” about how global warming was decimating the polar bear populations. He was surprised to find that the polar bears were not in such dire straits after all.
“There are far more polar bears alive today than there were 40 years ago,” Unger told NPR in an interview about his new book, “Never Look a Polar Bear in The Eye.” “There are about 25,000 polar bears alive today worldwide. In 1973, there was a global hunting ban. So once hunting was dramatically reduced, the population exploded.”
“This is not to say that global warming is not real or is not a problem for the polar bears,” Unger added. “But polar bear populations are large, and the truth is that we can’t look at it as a monolithic population that is all going one way or another.”
Via Real Estalker, Al and Tipper Gore have picked up a $8.875M luxury getaway in Montecito, CA; a swanky zip code that has attracted big name residents like Oprah Winfrey, Steve Martin, and Kirk Douglas. Records show that the approximately 6,500 sq. foot home boasts 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a large pool house, 6 fireplaces, wood framed french doors, and carved stone detailing throughout
