Senator Ted Cruz has joined the cacophony of critics who are taking Oprah Winfrey to task for her recent guilting of all White people in our Society.
From The Hill:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) lashed out at Oprah Winfrey for saying white privilege is an “advantage,” accusing the Black media mogul of spewing “utter, racist BS.”
“Billionaire Oprah lectures the rest of us: ‘You still have your whiteness. That's what the term "white privilege" is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter,’” the senator wrote on Twitter in response to an article from Glenn Beck’s conservative outlet The Blaze.
“What utter, racist BS,” he added.
His comments come after Winfrey debuted her new interview show on Apple TV+, “The Oprah Conversation.”
"It's time to bring humanity back to the conversation," Winfrey tweeted when announcing her new show last month."
When Oprah Winfrey recently launched her new show, "The Oprah Conversation," on AppleTV, one of her first points of order was making sure White people knew just how guilty they are, simply for being White.
From The NYPost:
The 66-year-old media mogul has been labeled a hypocritical “fraud” following the latest installment of her Apple TV+ series, “The Oprah Conversation,” featuring former NFL star and race activist Emmanuel Acho.
Acho, 29, who also hosts the web series “Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man,” joined Winfrey for a two-part episode, which included a segment inviting non-black viewers to ask difficult questions about racism and white privilege.
“Not all white people have power,” said one guest. “There’s plenty of poor, working-class white people. But I think that when we group all of white people together and we don’t recognize the fact that there’s a lot of white people that struggle, and it’s a different struggle as you mentioned because they’re not streaming upstream let’s call it …”
They continued, “I think that if we’re gonna come together and really attack racism and the inequities that are in this country and are in this world, that it’s important not to group all white people.”
The veteran broadcaster also said white people have a “leg up.”
“You still have your whiteness. That’s what the term ‘white privilege’ is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter,” she said.
Winfrey’s current net worth stands at $2.6 billion, according to Forbes, and conservative pundits were quick to weaponize that fact on Twitter following her show."
Considering Oprah has more power and influence than about 99% of the planet, black, white, or purple, makes her comments all the more laughable.
That she would pretend to be tackling racial injustice while she built her fortunes on the fandom of suburban White Women, makes her a pathetic hypocrit at best.
At worst, and probably most likely, she is just another racist masquerading as a champion of Black people in this country, while she drives the wedge between them and Whites even deeper.
