Open Post: Oprah Admits She Wanted to Be White


Media mogul Oprah Winfrey once admitted she wanted to be white, which explains a lot.

Oprah, 65, made headlines last week when she interviewed Michael Jackson’s two accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck in her special called “After Neverland”. Both men appeared in the controversial HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, in which they claimed Jackson molested them as youngsters.

Jackson died of respiratory and cardiac arrest following a propofol overdose in 2009 at age 50.

Oprah’s interview with Robson and Safechuck was empathetic and supportive. She even denounced Jackson who was acquitted of similar accusations after a 14-week molestation trial in 2005.

Now an old Oprah interview has resurfaced in the Internet graveyard where nothing stays buried forever.

In the old Barbara Walters interview, that originally aired in 1988, Oprah explained that she once wished she was white.
