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
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.
 
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.
What has he got to lose at this point? It's his last term! Show some damn political courage. No one is asking him to be black Jesus. Just use his position to push certain agendas that he should push because blacks are part of his constituency just like women and gays and latinos. First term, I understood. Second term, I've run out of patience. But thread is about Oprah, lol.

I have my issues with Oprah, ESPECIALLY how she handled the Trayvon thing. But y'all are exaggerating a little. She has done some good things, it's not all negative.

my thoughts exactly.. 

and since when has she become the official voice for black folks? 

black folks have used their own voice they ain't looking, at least I ain't, for an official representative of the Trayvon's case.. 

the movie ain't make believe it is actual history and the bio of the butler a real person, that worked in the white house thru several administrations.. what did ya'll think the movie was about? fiction?

She reminds me of that woman Veronica on Tyler Perry's show, Haves/Have Nots. She's the one who tries to pretend like she doesn't remember where she's from, and/or she does not like to associate herself with Blacks. That's what Oprah is like. I don't like her anyway.
