It would be different if Black people started using the N word against WHITE people but no ... it's against OTHER Black people? What for?

I love it when O tells the story of her grandmom working for whites as a maid and telling O to pay attention to her washing and cleaning so she could learn to do it too;  and maybe one day she will get a job working for some good white people. The whole while, O was thinking 'that won't be me.'

O said her grandmom would be  happy to know that she now has some good white people working for her.

I have to agree with you there. Even though it's not the same intent when black people use it, it's still disturbing. I actually hate the new spelling that's making the rounds on bhm, you know the one that ends with uh. Everytime I see it, it turns my stomach. There's something profoundly ugly and sick about that new incarnation. I don't know why we remain attached to that damn word, re-appropriation or not.

Oprah Winfrey on Paula Deen's N-word scandal: 'She was used as a symbol, but lots of people use the word inappropriately all the time'

The star of 'Lee Daniels' The Butler' says her door is open if Deen wants to revisit her show to talk about the racism controversy.

I'm upset that she quietly left the store. I'm cool with her not handing the bish a commission but she's Oprah. She could have contacted somebody and gotten that bish fired.

I don't know, Ricky. Oprah didn't even mention the name of the store. For all we know, her superiors are not even aware of the situation.

I don't know that Oprah was allll over Switzerland, she was likely in a small area and most everyone there probably recognized her

the process of elimination won't take long

Oprah probably wasn't willing to spend time on petty bullsh*t, she wasn't in dire need of a purse, the shopkeeper was probably in dire need of the commission ... but I get it, that it would have been helpful for the other black people that live there
