Oprah Video Surfaces That Sparks Outrage Regarding Racism

Based on the results of a Rasmussen Poll after a fiery speech at the Golden Globes, it seems the idea of Oprah Winfrey running for president is gaining traction.

And honestly, if Oprah is serious about running, it really isn’t all that surprising once you consider she would simply be joining the likes of other celebrities (i.e. Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump) in doing so.

However, what is surprising is that Oprah would be the first presidential candidate to ever suggest that certain generations of people within the electorate “just (has) to die.”

During a 2013 interview with the BBC while on a publicity tour for the movie “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,”, she actually implied that the older white generation will “just have to die” in order to rid this country of its racist ways. Meaning, they are going to have to die off before racism truly ends. She isn’t suggesting people should die (like many other outlets reported), but rather generations will have to pass before racism truly ends.

Listen to her comment below…

Oprah's solution to racism; Old white people "just have to die".What a horribly divisive message.

“As long as there are people who still — there’s a whole generation — I say this, you know, I said this, you know, for apartheid, South Africa, I said this for my own, you know, for my own community in the South — there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.”

Snopes fact checked what she actually said.

“Winfrey’s remarks weren’t specifically targeted at white people,” Snopes claimed. “She did not say ‘All old white people have to die,’ or ‘White older people have to die,’ or any other fabricated, race-based version of her actual remarks. In fact, she never uttered the phrase ‘white people’ at all.”
