In case you didn't know, Oprah Winfrey is NOT the Messiah!
But somebody needs to tell her that as soon as possible!
Now that statement was sprinkled with a bit of sarcasm so please don't think that I despise Ms. Winfrey, that's not the case at all.
My dislike is toward her actions - or rather lack of them - is when it comes to addressing the issues in the Black community she treats them like they don't exist until she has a movie coming out.
It's almost as though she sees the pain and suffering that Black people must endure on a daily basis as merely a way to get the money pot stirred so that she can reap the benefits with the high box office numbers that happen whenever we as Black people see someone that looks like us on the screen to bring in the big bucks.
I mean DAMN OPRAH! Are Black people simply trained monkeys to you that are to jump through your cinematic hoops every time you have a flick to hustle to the masses?
.......do you feel as though we should feel that your movies are some kind of reward like a puppy feels when he gets a doggie snack?
We jump for you all of the time Oprah, but in recent memory - and NOT so recent memory - you don't seem to care for us enough to give us the support when the people who look like YOU - male AND female - are shot down in cold blood with no hesitation or remorse whatsoever!
How does it feel to look down on the poor city of us common working stiffs knowing that you for the most part have been given a pass to what most of us will have to endure for the rest of our lives in this country called Amerikkka?
How does it feel to look in the mirror to know that you will always be Amerikkka's favorite Mammy and be paid well to continue a well known tradition that has been going on here for hundreds of years?
How does it feel?
