Sad about Deen racist comments

13 Jun, 2013

Oprah gives and interview to Entertainment Tonight and is questioned about the racist comments friend Paula Deen recently made. Oprah also tells a story of recent racism that she experienced.

In the very first days I tried to reach her and then I decided to stay out of it as I saw it blowing up. In time she will be fine. For me, it all just felt kind of sad. Nobody in their right mind is going to call me the N-word. You know, you see those fools on Twitter sometime say ridiculous things. But nobody in their right mind is going to do that to my face, because true racism is being able to have power over somebody else. So that doesn’t happen to me that way.
