Twarga, you seem to bear some deep-seated hatred for Oprah.  Is this something we should talk about? :-\ :P

I was just about to post a copy of that article myself...  Considering that the article mentions nothing about race relations, even from Oprah's people, I'm beginning to think this was all a big misunderstanding...

She got turned down, yes, but I don't know that this particular instance was due to race--especially if Oprah's not even saying it was...

you misunderstood the point, the question was one of deconstructing the binary nature of French citizenship with includes elements of a social pact la Rousseau as well as a underlying racialization of the French national identity.  please stay on topic.

Maybe we should.  She's just such a pretentious snob who seems to me to be sooooo out of touch with the black community... that is, until it suits her fancy.  Her show is so self-serving, like a big I Love Oprahthon.  

I need therapy.  I realize that now.  Do they make shrinks that help with my specific disorder?

Yeah I don't like her show.  Love the magazine though.  One of the reason's I'm inclined to believe she may have felt it was *something* racial is precisely because she's so race-free, in most situations.  Her fan base is mostly White women!

Hey, Oprah really went through a lot so I won't begrudge her the love-athon.  I'm glad she can love herself now.

He scares me a little.  He'd say, "You hate Oprah?  How's that workin' for ya?" and I'd run screaming, just like I do in my dreams.

so now the only support for the argument is, "Oprah was discriminated against because I was discriminated against" ?

Where did this come from? ::)  None of us were there, the point is all y'all don't need to automatically assume it didn't happen just like we can't assume it did.  Stop flaming.  This thread is dead.
