Oprah, Palin, and Color:

9 Sep

Can any rational human being doubt that if Governor Palin were a “woman of color,” she would not be immediately invited to appear on the Oprah Winfrey show, and not have to wait until after the election?

In my opinion, it is Oprah’s highly publicized endorsement of Barak Obama that, in large part, made the 2008 United States Presidential contest into a racial affair.

Oprah Winfrey is entitled to her opinion, but being the public person that she is, should have shown more restraint and not be so openly racially biased.
