So speaking about race makes a person racist?

Not sure if Oprah looks like her. Maybe in the right light or something.

Yes, the picture is big because it is so so so glorious.

Where exactly do you fit into this? I mean, I'm trying hard to not just assume this is some race issue for you, but...um...unless you're just a Oprah fan and you're unhappy with her movie roles, we're sort of running out of reasons for this thread.

You know what? You've reached me today. I was lost in a pathetic electronic existence, vacuous of purpose or thoughtful contribution. My own failings as a person have led me down a sad and lonely path, the only respite from which lies in the denigration of those who have contributed, who have achieved despite the enormous challenges faced by uppity black chicks in this stupid, stupid world.

She also has big, floppy knockers.

UL-Saban, I'm a black man and I really get tired of all these type of movies as well. But you can't compare black people in America to any of the European races. Indians and black people have faced a long road of discrimination in this country. Even Asians were discriminated against. Yes, there was a lot of conflict between the various European nationality. But a black person has never been able to blend in to this society without obviously being black. Maybe Oprah wants to remind our young people were we came from. She has the right to do it. But for you to be so obviously bother by it is asine.

I just think Oprah is a fraud and these movies are opportunistic. Race issues have become a cult of resentment. There is no cure.

re: Oprah graces yet another plight of the black man movie


can you please explain how this movie is from the cult of resentment?

you don't think Selma to Montgomery marches are of historical significance?

It just seems like there's a new movie about racial conflict every week, and this thread is way more about Oprah's narcissism. Stay on target.

I see more threads every week bitching about the ending of Man of Steel than this.

Did you bitch when Barry Levinson helped make some movies & TV shows about people from his home town of Baltimore?

Diner (1982)
Avalon (1990) said to be about his own family
Liberty Heights (1999)TV
Homicide: Life on the Street (1993–1999)TV
Original Diner Guys (1999)
Homicide: The Movie (2000)

She's an African American woman. What kind of movies do you expect her to be involved with?

So, hating on Oprah is the same as hating all black people?

Oprah. Is that you?

I didn't say that at all, but you are clearly fishing for a particular reaction and it doesn't really seem to be going that way you thought.

I wasn't fishing for racism, sparky. I can actually get that on any board. But yeah, I did throw in my own editorial observation. When it stops being true, I'll stop noticing.

Can she be in a movie about something else for a change?


I haven't seen many movies lately. How many of the 19 movies has she's been in deal with the oppression of black people?

Oprah Winfrey IMDb

Are you mad at here for doing movies about women having been oppressed? That's what the movie she won an Oscar for was about.

Yes. I enjoy oppressing women and that movie inhibits my ability to do so.
