Oprah Winfrey For President (Conservatives Go Mad)

There is a bit of ridiculous in what follows as it all relates to the "hope not" prospect of an entertainer and business person possibly running for the White House in 2020. We have had more than enough of US reality show politics.

The blossoming talk of Oprah Winfrey as a possible presidential candidate simply isn't appealing for many reasons. The least of which is the potential for further diminution of the US Presidency to the realm of a joke and place of aspiration for certain entertainers with mega egos. While we have concerns with Winfrey as a potential presidential candidate, we find the reaction from some of the far-Right utter appalling.

Alex Jones, a Trump supporting maniac, responded to the prospect of Oprah Winfrey as a presidential candidate. His response was nothing shy of an audience appealing guttural racist diatribe. 

If you think what you just watched was disgusting, make room for more. If you did not find the Alex Jones segment repulsive two considerations should ensue. First, you will not in any way find what follows less disgusting. More important, if you did not find the Jones segment abhorrent, you really should exercise your medical coverage with an appointment with a psychiatrist. One more "if".  If you are a candidate for the psychiatrist appointment, you should probably make the appointment soon, your choice of US President seems headed towards a similar appointment.

There is more for conservative America.

Media Matters

Gavin McInnes calls Oprah a "slut" with a "ghetto mentality" who "was turning tricks" before becoming rich

McInnes: Oprah "She was turning tricks, she was basically a prostitute and that’s still in her DNA"


The attack on the prospect of Oprah Winfrey as a candidate for office also has generated a few strange manifestations. 

Be aware of efforts for some entities in the Trump world of deceit, sycophancy, and moving the nation to the gutter have interest in securing details about the secretive Mueller Grand Jury.  What would be better in discrediting the Grand Jury while possibly facilitating a more public picture of the Grand Jury ad racists rants which seem to appeal to the Right?

How best to work as a cloaked mole perping dirty tricks; do it yourself.

This Think Progress piece is a must read: Trump as the suspect? 

When do you think the GOP and many of its supporters (US conservatives) are so tolerant of over racism?  

We will not assert that all conservatives are racists. We do assert US racists sees comfortable denizens of GOP politics and policy.

I Don't Want To Be Labeled "African-American"

"To each his or her own." 

Life is what you make it, live it and experience it. We as people have every right to choose how we present ourselves to all external stimuli and every external reality.  One can hardly grow upset when one makes choices that they feel best fits their existence. 

When people make choices that do not sit well with me as a person, I also have the right to divest myself from any and every experience of, to and from that person. Apparently, a person who I have no knowledge of, who happens to be of a person of color has declared her disdain for the reference "African-American" while declaring she is an American.  

I will admit to a personal affinity for "black" over African-American, so I understand choice. "Choice" if we really must have labels. In a diverse society labels matter. When we live in a world of of overt and growing bigotry with unequal treatment for some by some in the racial majority, a distinct matters. We are not all equal as "Americans" and anyone who longs for a neutral and equal playing field lives in a alternative universe. They, like Raven-SymonĂ© are generally people who have reached a level of notoriety and celebrity that affords a position above the flock. 

First, who the hell is Raven-Symone? It seems I am again guilty of what I call "failure to star worship." My knowledge and experience with the Symone would be as unremarkable as crossing anyone on a grocery star parking lot. Yet, Ms. Symone has the celebrity for an interview with another celebrity and was afforded an opportunity to explain her contempt for being referred to as African-American. 

I have posted the Oprah Winfrey video below. It should be no surprise Symone chose to visit the Oprah set with a hairstyle that was clearly void of any quick look opportunity to say, "She looks black."

Joe Madison, The Black Eagle, addressed the Symone sentiment with typical Madison flair. He invited noted scholar, historian and professor Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. to comment from a deep and cerebral perspective.
In a world of centuries long oppression of black people, and growing bigotry and racism embodied by overt "white privilege," Symone's remarks are deleterious and disrespectful to the millions who afford her celebrity. She is also as misguided and shallow as others who wish to deny their ethnicity while seeming to long for acceptance in a world that will not overlook nor accept them beyond their celebrity. Today Symone issued a statement along this line: "I never said I wasn't black."   Well, isn't it amazing how a few days of flak and a publicists can modified reality?
