    do your homework right: EUROP ISN'T AMERICA!!


    She shouldn't have to apologize. It was racism.


    I am a 53 year old white woman. Did I yell "racism" ten years ago when a Hispanic salesman told me I coudn't afford a car I was looking at- this before giving my name, much less any other information to said gentleman. The vehicle in question was a Jeep Wrangler. Obviously I chose not to do business there. Instead I went to the local Cadillac dealer. "Racism"? Hardly. But then, I didn't have a movie to promote.

    Yeah and that would be a good one for whites to boycott. I would love to see the total numbers of blacks that pay.


    Oprah is a living example as to how ALL black people will be if they were on top financially. They would still scream racism no matter what the case.


    Oprah knew what she was doing -- and it was done to promote her new movie about race relations and civil rights. A sad commentary on what used to be a person to admire.
