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.

Self Hatred Is Real Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

Tennis star Serena Williams is the topic of conversation these days, since getting engaged and pregnant by Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian. And according to the greatest female tennis player and quite possibly the greatest female athlete of all time, out of all the men she’s dated, the white men especially her now fiancé, have treated her better than the Black men she’s dated. Many are saying, it’s self-hatred when you marry and pro-create outside of your race.

We’re all entitled to our opinions because you can’t control who you love or can you? But when you cohabitate and pro-create outside of your race, is it self hate? When you long to have mixed children because you want your children mixed breed, is that self-hate? Do you look in the mirror and hate the person staring back at you?

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio for my commentary on “Self Hatred“.
