Oprah Winfrey Really Hates When People Use the N-Word

Oprah Winfrey has had to put up with some serious bullshit in life, the latest being her Color Purple co-star Rae Dawn Chong calling her a “house nigger” and basically completely trashing her for no reason. No one cares about Rae Dawn Chong, but Oprah was affected enough by the incident to speak out on it in a new interview with Parade:

You cannot be my friend and use that word around me. It shows my age, but I feel strongly about it. … I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.

Yeah, I would say that’s about right. I am not nearly Oprah’s age, nor am I black, but I also won’t have people using that word around me. It just shows ignorance and close-mindedness, etc. Anyway, I don’t think she needs to be worried about Rae Dawn, considering I’d never even heard her name before now. Just tell her you’re sorry you can’t hear her over all your money and success, girl.

    • I had the same exact thought.

      I’m sure she thinks that in order to communicate with a black woman, she must end every sentence with, “Giiiiiiiiiiirl!” and a righteous neck roll.


      • Or, if you read back on this site, you can see that I address everyone – white girls especially – as “girl”. It’s called colloquial speech.

  • Millions where lynched ??????

    Before the civil war most of the blacks in the United States where property,, So that would just be a stupid thing to do.
    And for they last 150 years we have records, which are most likely completely wrong, but that would still only get us into maybe dozens.
