But, let's make this into a "racist" story instead.

Racist shop girl said I couldn't afford a £24,000 handbag, says billionaire Oprah Winfrey | Mail Online

Call up Al and Jesse!

The premise of this thread is a joke. You're being purposely dishonest. That's NOT the story.

The link is there. Try reading it and then, if you still have an issue, take it up with the Daily Mail.

Default If Oprah was beautiful do you think the clerk would have still turned her away?

http://gawker.com/racist-shop-clerk-...e-1077561016do you think this would have happened if she looked like Paula Patton? Or Vanessa Williams?

The Queen of nothing does not have rights to all private property on earth.Some things must be learned and money can't buy everything you see if it is not yours to begin with. I would never sell her or let her touch a piece of my art

Default Why do SOME people think that OPRAH's racist encounter in Switzerland was NOT RACIST??

Please read the article or be familiar about this situation before commenting:
Oprah Winfrey racism row over Switzerland shop incident - CNN.com

This was CLEARLY RACISM.

Sometimes it's unclear whether a situation is actually racist or not (such as the trayvon thing); but this is one of the situations where it is 100% clear and obvious that this is racism.

The thing about racism in the 21st century is that it is rarely as blatant and obvious as it used to be in past decades. So since now most racists beat around the bush with their racial comments; they can deny any racism in their comments and/or backtrack.

I feel like some people are so afraid to admit that a racist event occurred when it's extremely clear.

A lot of people deny this was racism and they give the most PATHETIC excuses as to why it's not. The excuses include but are not limited to:

Quote:
Excuse 1: "Maybe they wouldn't show anyone the handbag?"
Well, if that was the case then why would the bag even be for sale?!?!?!?!?

Quote:
Excuse 2: "Maybe she was dressed trashy and it was about class?
No, Oprah was dressed in her usual attire (which is far from trashy).

Quote:
Excuse 3: "Blacks just love to whine and play victims"
OK, to be fair: Sometimes this is true but oftentimes, blacks have every reason to whine and play the victims. If you ever read the comments sections of any forum, article or youtube; you will see people's true feelings and how people really are. So obvious there is a magnitude of serious racism being directed at blacks that warrant them "whining", "playing the race card" or whatever terms people like to use nowadays.

And before you even go there...no, i'm NOT a Democrat/Liberal.
