Is that sarcasm?  I honestly can't tell.

Do you feel as strongly about Obama's handling of the Trayvon case?
I wasn't too impressed with him. In fact, he was pissing me the hell off.. However, he did get major points when he gave his press conference. I thought that was brave of him. But I would still like for something to actually come of it! Who knows what's in store with the DOJ...
Everyone knows I have my issues with Obama, lol
 
I was curious, because people criticize her much more than him and I didn't really see the difference. 
Major difference. He's a head of state with unprecedented powers as a black man. I criticize him much more than her.

That's what I thought, but people were harder on her than him.
 
I already expressed my views on this on another thread, but I'll just say I understand why both of them exercise a lot of restraint in speaking out about issues concerning the black community.

No. I just wrote it silly. I respect a lot what Oprah has done and although she does get it wrong at times, I feel as if her heart is in a good place. 

I am proud of her achievements and I am even more proud that she is black and has achieved so so much. I don't see her as a sell-out, even though I don't agree with everything she does etc. I think she is a good role model. 

Hope that makes sense! lol

Yes it does, and it basically sums up how I feel about her as well.

Disagree with the bolded. There's restraint and then there's damn near crickets. One has concrete power, the other has a fantastic platform. I don't accept the apologist perspective, especially when it comes to the prez.
Oprah, to some extent, I can understand it although I don't give her a complete pass.
She just recently made headway with OWN and she was in danger of losing her empire. So to some extent (emphasis on some), I can understand why she's cautious. But the prez is in his second term. No excuse there. They both should be doing better.

I do agree with that to some extent. I don't see her as a coon. But this using of Trayvon's name to promote her movie annoys me. It wouldn't if she had been vocal about it before on her platform.

Yeah we can agree to disagree.  No one wants to be Black Jesus in America, and I understand why.  Its a lose/lose situation.  Obama learned his lesson after the Prof Gates controversy and I'm glad he did.
