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.

It was Hermes in Paris years ago. It made the news. idk if she ever said the name---but what better place to hit someone than their pockets? no commission for  you. I do it all the time. I don't complain--make mental notes and just leave.

The Oprah vitriol on BHM is...unfounded and myopic.

interesting.

from article:

<<When asked if she has ever been called the N-word, Winfrey explained that, for her, sexism seems to be the bigger issue. "The sexism thing is huge," said Winfrey. "The higher the ladder you climb it gets huge, because men are used to running things.".>>

i feel that for POC, it's so intertwined. esp. the higher up you go.

what is that called? intersectionality? i think.

OK. I remember the Hermes incident. I thought it was a different one.
Edit: actually, Purple is right. The Hermes incident was in Paris, no?
A recent event . Remember Tina was married a few weeks ago . We have a topic a few pages back . Oprah should call out the folks after the same thing happen several times .

I don't understand why Black  people want to 'take back' and 'own' words like this ... just so they can turn around ...and also use it against black people. Ermm
 
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?
 
Backward.
 
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.

CO-SIZZLE!
