Is it Me, Or Did the Black Community Just Get Played by Oprah? 10 Questions You Should Be Asking

oprah singing

by Yvette Carnell

Are the natives restless again? As Oprah beats the drum of racism, Black America’s got her back, as never before. The billionaire empress is now caricatured as the victim of a lowly Swiss sales clerk who, according to Oprah, refused to show the Queen of All Media a $38, 000 pocketbook because she’s nigra.   Bad saleslady! Good billionaire!

But before you go jumping on the Oprah bandwagon, here are just a few things you should consider, both about race in general and this case in particular, before forming a final conclusion.


  • The Black Elite, who often consider themselves “special” Negroes, separate themselves from ordinary Blacks until they need us. If Oprah is concerned about race, then why isn’t she hosting a ‘stop and frisk’ panel on OWN? She seems only concerned about herself, and what she perceives as mistreatment at the hands of a white woman. Is it all about her…. and her $38,000 purse? Just as it was about her experience at an Hermes store awhile back?
  • Oprah is currently promoting the movie “The Butler.” Is it impossible for black folk to even consider and question the timing of Oprah’s accusation? Or do we just run to the defense of every black person who cries racism?
  • The saleslady at the store said that she never refused to show Oprah the purse because of race, saying she makes money from commission, and not showing Oprah the purse based on racist grounds doesn’t make any sense. Doesn’t she have a point?
  • Also, the saleslady says Oprah was treated warmly and shown several purses in the store, something which Oprah never denied. Does that sort of treatment sound like the treatment of a woman with a racial axe to grind?
  • Is it possible that Oprah, coming from one of the most racist countries in the Western World, has her own baggage, and felt slighted, even though that’s not what the saleslady intended?
  • Could the saleslady’s attitude have been more about class than race?
  • Why does Oprah Winfrey, a billionaire, still seem so desperate for white acceptance? As the saleslady pointed out, the owner of the boutique was at Tina Turner’s wedding along with Oprah, so why not take it up there, as a private matter? Why did Oprah feel the need to answer a reporter’s question by recounting this incident? Why did Oprah feel the need to bring international attention to her not being allowed to buy a $38,000 handbag?
  • Is it morally acceptable for any elite to turn an ordinary person’s life upside down over a perceived slight? Doesn’t that make Oprah a bully?
  • Why do we believe that Black Elites are any less cunning and flawed than White Elites?
  • Who gives a damn about a $38,000 pocketbook anyway when there are so many other larger issues at play?

Listen Black America, a whole nation has apologized to Ms. Winfrey over this nonsense, and you should get over it too. You shouldn’t have allowed yourselves to be used as a tool and worked into a frenzy by Ms. Winfrey’s PR campaign in the first place. Save that for a time when Ms. Winfrey can bring more to the silver screen than “The Butler”, which is nothing more than a 2013 rendering of “The Help.”  Maybe when Oprah decides to use her platform to share authentic black stories, we can be there to support, but until then, let her fight her own battles.

I Agree with every single word , right down to the last letter... I love to see any black person make it... but the she used "us" for ratings and then once the going got better she turned the lights off for "us" and "OWN" for them. I was done with anything about her back in the 90's. As I understand it she can't bring black Americans up so she goes over to other countries... speculate ... That her handlers are not allowing her to do it here to keep us at bay.. but out of the country is different. . Let's just keep it real... If you can imagine all of these black people in power building all black things and pulling our talented people up and giving us an opportunity to work not only for them but with them and build from their ... you and I know both white people Will NEVER let that happen but I tell who is...not will but is.... Jesus... The first will be LAST and the LAST will be FIRST... just sit back and watch...

It is all about race not class. Can you determine class by looking at someone? But you can determine race. Race is connected to perception and perception is based on belief. The facts speak for themselves. Ms. Winfrey should not have been denied anything. The clerk drew a conclusion that was wrong based on a prejudgement and past experiences and race was a factor. It does not have to be the reason, only a factor.

Special Negroes solicit the masses only when needed. Kinda like what O.J. did. What's most ironic is how many Black women in this country hang onto this woman's every last word as though she was paying their rent, hair salon appointments and shopping sprees at Nine West.

This is such a silly article. Again I ask: where is the real intellectual dialogue here?

The articles are on this site are like the comments: very personal and anecdotal and not reasoned or convincing set of ideas argued or any empirical evidence.  The absurdity of the title signals a myopic, bitchy point of view.  There are over 50 million black people in this country and this idiot is talking about the "black community" as if it is monolithic and singular.  I repeat: where are the intellectual essays on this site?!!!!!!!

Dang…That is real talk!!!! She only bother's with us when she need something from us like, them 'white folks" she loves so much did not follow her to her OWN station and she was about to go under until she got Tyler Perry to rally the forces. I seen threw her a long time ago..Haven't watched her since she dissed Luda for no good reason Forgot who she is and always will be, before anything else your money can buy you will always be a Black Woman.

Like most blacks, Oprah has a huge chip on her shoulder.  Every slight or perceived slight is taken as "racism".

Yvette Carnell you should be ashamed of yourself for writing such an article.  If it were'nt for Oprah and women like her, you would not have gained the opportunities you have now. Have you no historical reference? Who needs racists kicking our ass everyday when we have people like you. Use you writing skills for good. Work to build people up, not tear them down.

Interesting story. From what I have summarized from reading the article, the writer is saying two things.  He feels that Oprah orchestrated a scheme to indirectly promote her new movie, The Butler, by claiming that she was discriminated against in a Swedish store when a clerk refused to show her a purse costing $38,000 dollars. The writer is also claiming that Oprah is an opportunist that only plays the race card when it serves her best interest and that she cares nothing about Black people until she needs their support.  


Well, this is my opinion. Oprah is a very smart women. Do you think that she became a billionaire without using that brain of hers. Or maybe she just lucked-up on her billions, huh? The truth of the matter is that Oprah understands very well her power and influence and knows how to use it. I believe that she may have used her power and influence to indirectly promote the movie, yes. But hey, the white elite use their bag of tricks to push their agenda every day. However, the real question is that at the end of the day, is she an individual with integrity who uses her influence and wealth to make the world a better place. I would say "Yes"!  The second claim that the writer states is that she is an elitist and cares nothing about black people until she needs them. Also, what I got from the article is that she has no use for average folk. My response is this. When did elitism become a dirty word? They said the same thing about Obama when he became president. So is she suppose to hang out with the blue-collar workers. Or maybe she should hobnob with the thugs, pimps, prostitutes and drug addicts. Would any of us do that if we had her wealth? When you are a billionaire, you enjoy your billions. Isn't that what most of us dream of. We spend billions buying lottery ticket hoping to hit the big jackpot. Most us would love to hit the big jackpot. The difference here is that she worked her ass off to get where she is today. It took risk, intuition, and intelligence to obtain her success.
However, let her track record speak for its self. The truth of the matter is that Oprah behaves nothing like a person that has forgotten about her "people". Here are four reason that prove this. Reason #1. Oprah has invested millions of dollars in the development of a leadership academy in South Africa that promotes the advancement of poor black girls through out South African. Many of those girls are now attending ivy league schools in the US. Reason #2. She gives millions of dollars in scholarships to black males who desire to attend college here in this country. Without her help, many would not have realized their dream of going to college. Haven't you heard, Black American males are 52% more likely to drop-out of high school, a 26 % incarceration rate, and 49% chance of being arrested before the age of 23. Oh, but wait. Reason #3. She endorsed a Black candidate for president and he won. Reason #4. She has starred in countless movies that tell the story of the plight of the African-America and their fight for equality in America. One of them was about a slave women. The movie flopped, but she continued producing movies that tell the Black American women's story despite its expected success or failure at the box office. Many people believe that when a Blacks becomes successful in American. It is only in their character to forget where they have come from. That is to say that even when Blacks demonstrate through their actions their commitment to community, some still insist that there is some type of character flaw that prevents them from doing the right thing. 
Overall, the writer appears to have used the purse incident as a way to denigrate Oprah. My feeling about the article is that the writers arguments are weak and does not offer concrete examples that supports their statements.  It is publications like these that continue to tear-down, decimate, and demonize Black people. We have come along way from the days of Jim Crow, but the act of lynching still prevails, it's just done in a different way.

Ms. You should check your facts before running your mouth. Oprah Winfrt, have done more for black people that you will ever do even if you live anothe hundred years. Look what Oprah have done for the men at Moorehouse college, the girls school South Africa. Where is your record of contributionother that tearing Oprah down for your own selfish ego?.Ms. Winfrey records are available for any one or everyone to exzmine, where is your?.Even if she was selfserving, she have my support because she is one who have worked her way out of poverty and have helped thousands of people, not just blacks but whites also. My Mother used to tell me if you dont have anything good to say about someone then you should shut your trap up.

@essencereynolds27 I peeped Oprah long, long, long ago. If you're old enough like I am, you will remember a gentleman by the name of Phil Donahue. Donahue was based in Chicago and was THE talk show titan at that time. To even survive a few months going up against him in the ratings, you needed a massive "hook". Oprah's hook was her constant and steady debasement and vilification of American black males. Remember the whole "I was sexually abused by my male cousins at age 12" shtick she had going on at that time? 


White soccer moms in the south and midwest at that sh#@ up like mountain lions consuming a deer! Denigrating black men is how Oprah not only survived vs. Donahue, but thrived. 

http://www.chicagonow.com/life-as-i-see-it/2011/01/oprah-winfrey-owned-shes-still-a-big-fat-fraud/


And you will notice that any time she's on TV giving something away, it's always to some white soccer mom in Kansas, or Nebraska, or to some black girls in South Africa or Kenya. You never see her doing a damned thing for black people in this country because she despises and utterly abhors them.


Any African-American who supports this soulless piece of sh#@ is a God damned fool! And that's being kind.

@BlackRobbb You are probably a white troll so be gone no one cares about your opinion!  It sounds very basic and REMEDIAL!!  Stop hating  because beauty is SUBJECTIVE!!!  You probably think Paris Hilton or Katy Perry are beautiful, so go to a website that cater to those people.  At least Oprah is NOT LYING on her back all day getting bed sores while she waits for a RICH  DUMB BLACK man to take CARE of her.
  Where is all the HATE and ANGER coming from?

@Nassera Malik DuCre, I am very impressed with your brilliant reply, regarding this article. Everyone I know holds Oprah in a very high regard. She came from complete poverty, & is now one of the richest women in the world. But, as brilliant as she is, it is her love for humanity that I love, & respect the most. How sad to want to vilify a Lady that has done so much for others. Being positive, & uplifting especially against some terrible situations, is the real key to success.

@NasseraMalikDuCre Oprah became a billionaire using the white peoples stories. She allowed them to know that they came first by throwing the blacks to the end of the line! She went head strong with the white people so that why today she is RICH!

@NasseraMalikDuCre Oprah Winfrey is a part of the inside circle of demons. Do you really think her fat ass got to where she is because she's so intelligent? If the fuckin jews didn't allow to happen it would never have happened. If she would have been trying to really help black people she wouldn't be where she is today. GTFOH with that BS. That's just like you saying rappers and producers who have hundreds of millions did it themselves. Bs. They got there by selling out and helping destroy the black community. Do you think Dr Dre, P,Diddy, Jay-z, Rick Ross and those other fools would be so successful if they were talking about black unity? Hell nawl. Oprah got to were she is because they allowed it. Or did you know who owns the media???

@NasseraMalikDuCre You go girl!  Very, very well said!  I realize that people are entitled to agree with whatever they choose, but some people reading the article would automatically side with the writer. Critical thinking is never a consideration. In addition, the green eyed monster is prevalent. Most people will never use their brains as Oprah has to get what she has acquired through determination and hard work... like you said, they would rather spend their hard earned money on lottery tickets hoping to one day hit it big!  Nothing wrong in itself with that , but they put all of their trust in this method as opposed to getting a dream, following it and reaping the rewards like Oprah did.

How low can you go?

Oprah Winfrey, had tremendous SUCCESS, because ALL WOMEN could relate to her. THIS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HER BEING BLACK,IT HAD EVERYTHING TO DO WITH HER BEING A WOMAN. For the first time in television history, there was a down to earth, REAL, woman that other women could relate to.

She shared her life stories, and had other people on that shared theirs. She did have a mostly white audience, although I would say about 25% were Black. She became a BILLIONAIRE, & was one of the smartest women in the business as she owned a percentage in her show, & later owned her own network.

Being RAPED, especially by family members is absolutely horrific. ANYONE SAYING SHE WAS VILIFYING BLACK MALES OR INSINUATING THAT SHE WAS LYING ABOUT THAT, IS BEYOND IGNORANT.

That was a very painful time in her life that she still had the effects from. She had a very rough childhood, & the violence of rape is not a subject to be mocked. Family members that had raped her was certainly not an easy subject, nor a pleasant one. But, one of the reasons she became so popular is because she showed ALL WOMEN how to have real strength, & courage.

All women admired her, & loved her because they could relate to her. Most men do not understand that, but to say she was vilifying anyone is absolutely ignorant as it is CLEAR they were rapists, & she was the VICTIM.

She had many subjects on her show over the years, & talked about how women can become stronger, self reliant, & how important an education is. She talked about domestic abuse, & helped many on her show to get out of that kind of relationship. Oprah Winfrey will always be a HERO to most women who were lucky enough to see any of her shows.

She also brought Maya Angelou into the spotlight by having her on her show. Maya Angelou, was such an amazing, talented woman, who brought a feeling of calmness, & peace to all.

Oprah Winfrey has given tremendously to many charities both here & abroad. Her money is hers, SHE EARNED IT, but she has a loving, giving heart, & has blest many with her generosity.

Jealousy is a very evil thing, & I really believe there is so much jealousy out there, over many famous, successful people.

Extreme admiration should be given to Oprah, & others who have climbed out of poverty, & made an amazing life for themselves, against the worst odds available.

Man! I hear you brother!

Somebody on here told me Ope put up a a whole subdivision down there in Houston, I didnt believe it until I did my own research. I have to admit I feel she could have built a school over here, but then again, those chirren over there are eager to learn math and sciences period. We parents need to show our churren the value of studying and SELECTING the right career choice.

I dont expect Ope to give hand out CASH, but least get with some of those other Black Elite and help put some hope back in the hood.  After School Centers is NOT enough. And I tell you something else, these Churches have to step up their game too. One Black church near me has even adopted an elementary school taking an interest in the mostly Black students progress.

You are on Point!! and to add to your BLAST!! Don't sleep on "Ricki Lake" either she was rated second too Mrs. "OWN", back then. She had the same producer as Mr. Donahue, her "bothersome", topics got her the boot , as I seen her try to switch it up a little bit towards the end of her talk show but Mrs. OWN already turned the leaf before Mrs. Lake. What I mostly admired about Mrs. Lake was , to me she had an even everyday REALSTIC approach and even balance, she held EVERY FREAKEN, race accountable for their actions be it good or bad... she put "US" hairstylist and the Make up artist on a platform within "OUR" culture. " hair wars", just to name one out of many shows . She made smart moves and gave many black people with talent a voice and I notice as I was keeping an eye on Mrs. OWN she would try to steal her views or stay ahead of her direction.

I'm not suggesting that your competitors shouldn't keep you on your toes but what I'm suggesting is "GET YOUR ORIGINAL STANCE and STICK TO IT" and don't back down and for that I have mad respect for her .

Mrs. Lakes producers didn't like real everyday issues or success story plots, accusing Mrs. Lake of hiring the participants of the show to be fraudulent stories Mrs. Lake had our views after "we" discovers Mrs. OWN was out for self ... witch indeed she was and still is.

I'll be the first to say and I'm sticking to it .. I do not think nor believe that any made black entertainer owes "anything" so what that said their is no need for "us" to keep buying or supporting their sh.... since they don't some how feel that "we helped them gain their success" so keeping it real I do not own buy or go see anything black or white ... If and only if my people gives "US" opportunities and platforms with all this talent we have that is will you will get my vote , purchase or support, the old saying goes f me once shame on you and I cut the third one out f.. me twice shame on myself and it's a wrap. ..

I just can't imagine being in a position or given an opportunity to pull and send my money down into my own community build shhh for us open up shhh and hiring my own what is the issue with that every other race have been doing if forever .... what "they scared we are going to "OWN" everything yeaha like I said

.The last shall be FIRST and the FIRST shall be last!!! Just sit back and watch

Thank you, MzObservant. I usually don't respond to internet articles like these. But when I found out that the owner and writer of this website is an African-American woman, it prompt me to write a response.  Ms. Carnell should understand that because it is your "constitutional right"  to express your opinion, you should do so responsibly.  Never forget your position, as an African-American women in the grand scheme of things.   I agree with you, MzObservant, many people want instantaneous wealth not realizing that it takes smarts to hold on to it.

    ROFL!! Totally on target depiction of Owful. I could never stand her. She is the female equivalent of Obama (funny how they're both known by the letter "O" isnt it?) egowise. I know a lot of people in "the industry" and have heard many comments and stories about her over the years. NO ONE can stand her. The people who have worked for her, or otherwise had to deal with her, the celebs and their staffs, never heard one complimentary thing about her.

    This is what really disgusts me about her: a couple of years ago I had to start taking my Dad to the Dr all the time. I spent a lot of time in waiting rooms & glanced at her mags occasionally. Something struck me as odd & then I realized it was that SHE IS ON THE COVER EVERY MONTH!! How insanely egomanical is that? The world is full of beautiful people and beautiful sights, but Owful wants her mug & bod on every cover of her mag! Bizarre!

@CarolParks I don't see that many black women supporting her. It's mostly vapid white soccer moms in the south and midwest who have boring-as-hell lives and try to live vicariously through this fat heffa. That's because most of the times she's giving shit away, it's to one of these women. No wonder they swing from her girdle like they do...


You don't even know what charities Ofrah has given to without Googling it. You're just parroting the standard party line you've heard so many times before. Has she blessed you or anyone you know? NO.

How many people have been guilt tripped into joining Ofrah on her bullshit weight loss crusade, only to later lose their lives. Luther Vandross is one who comes to mind, but I know there are many other. Ofrah is conceited, fake, self-serving, agenda-oriented, self-absorbed and a bully. On top of all of that, not everyone is a fan of Ofrah:

"O" would be more aptly titled "O My God, I'm Fat, Unattractive, and a Liberal Fraud", maybe "Uh O!", when you consider the artist cleverness it takes to produce that rag from cover to finish.



LMAO!! This rant is so dead on! When the big "news" came out last month that Orca had gained 40 pounds and was fat again, all the morning talk and news shows, and even the cable news shows, discussed it. As they displayed the new cover of her ragazine, with side by side pics of the formerly thin Orca and the presently fat Orca, they ridiculously proclaimed that Orca was so "brave" and honest. 


I immediately predicted that her reason for doing this was because she would be launching yet another diet and exercise series once the new year rolled in, and that these clueless idiots were duped into giving her tons of free press. Sure enough, that's exactly what she did this past week (not that I would ever watch her show, but I read and heard about it).


Orca is a complete fraud, and that's how she was able to pimp the Obamessiah onto her sheeple that follow her. Why anyone would take diet and exercise advice from Orca and any of her "experts" is beyond me. Whatever she is doing, or they are advising her to do, is clearly NOT working. She's the ultimate yo yo dieter, and she's made a lot of money off that!


I LOVE your blog, and am so happy to have found it!

"Vandross died on July 1, 2005 at JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey at the age of 54.[18] His apparent cause of death was a heart attack."

He also had diabetes, & hypertension, that ran in his family. The stroke he had earlier, really affected his health. It's a terrible loss, as he brought so much joy to so many.

@BlackRobbb,

Luther Vandross, whom I personally loved his music, was an adult who was losing weight for health reasons. I am sure he was under a Dr's care. An adult makes his own decisions, & Oprah had nothing to do with his early demise.

@BlackRobbb,

Anyone can always find posts that are against any celebrity, just as I could post many that praise Oprah. So that is nothing, except someone's opinion.

Apparently your opinion is very low of Oprah, & nothing, not even facts would change your mind.

But, talking about her appearance, is very sexist, & very ignorant. It is NOT about her looks, ( which I believe she is VERY ATTRACTIVE), but more importantly " who she is", & that is defined by her personality, & actions.

I will leave it at that, except to say that she is one of the most powerful, & richest women in the world, because of her BRAINS, & I say, MORE POWER TO HER.

@CarolParks Oprah is an ugly b*t#@ who is hated by more people than Fidel Castro and Martha Stewart combined. The fact that you think so highly of her reveals a lot about you and just how vapid, empty and clueless you are about human character. You admire because she has money you will never have, no other reason. If she was a broke black woman, you wouldn't think twice to wipe the heel of your shoe on her, so who the hell are you kidding?

Keep your self-serving b.s. in the closet where it belongs.

@frankretired1 @Stickhoss @BlackIntelligence @BillSchrier okay we had nice area to live in but what happen to that the drug ronald regan used to tried to kill the black community with demolish  that and no one want to help fix our cities . we all like nice thing regardless your people are not the only ones who .like nice things remember we have class we used to have to keep your people house clean from way back so that is were we learned about class  because before we were not able to have our do any thing and why,Because your kind always thought that your people were the ones.So now that we do have blacks with money you think that we should not say anything well i think not

And it also a lot of whit man who do not take care of there kids as well  and they kill there whole families  crime is every were and do not get me start on your people crimes since way back .and looks to me that all your young kids want to be thugs as well and if not thugs they go to schools and shoot up little kids. So how about later on that!!

@frankretired1 I think a good starting point for your sick race would be to stop shooting school children, stop sexually praying on young boys, stop hiding behind the Bible and FOX News and trying to get your kids off alcohol, barbiturates and angle dust. Funny how you say that our neighborhoods suck, but you people keep moving into them and trying to gentrify them. Does Brooklyn and Harlem ring a bell? There are now more yuppies, hipsters and trust fund fags in Brooklyn and Harlem than Black folks. I wonder why...

Let me just addess one thing. Yes Black on Black crime is plastered all over the media and give you people something to make you feel better about your sick ass life but a least we are not coward enough to shoot an entire school of innocent children, what would you call that? self pity or self hatred? I think you should stop pointing fingers and work on keeping your own community free of the rapist, pedophiles, murders that your community seem to breed.

The more you post, the more people realize you're full of BS! Oprah Winfrey is one of the most popular women in the country, & the world.

Your INSECURITY, JEALOUSY, & IGNORANCE is on Blast, with every stupid word you write. Oprah could care less what you think, as well as anyone with a brain.

Her money bothers YOU, it definitely doesn't bother me, as I am more then comfortable, & happy for her to be so successful.

You are revealing all of your little insecurities. Go get help, you desperately need it.

@CarolParks Her money doesn't bother me. Her arrogance and obnoxiousness does. You support her because you are an overweight, vapid, brainless drone lacking the cognitive abilities to resist being a cheerleader. 


The only thing on "blast" is the fact that you are a pale, overweight couch potato who lives vicariously through other women. Maybe if you got off your fat ass once in awhile and did something yourself, you wouldn't feel the need to cheer lead for every woman who does. 

I'm pointing you towards help -- the nearest local gym! You care about my opinion because on cue, you keep replying. #dummy
