Oprah Lords Over White Folk, Talks Poop on XM

9/25/2006 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If it wasn't already totally evident that Oprah Winfrey can talk about anything for any length of time, her debut today on her own XM Radio channel just confirmed it. The talk-show queen gabbed with her best pal Gayle King (who called her, inexplicably, "Mommy") on what is nominally King's show on "Oprah & Friends," the satellite channel that launched today.

Among many, many other things, Oprah talked about her humble beginnings in Mississippi, and particularly about how her mother's highest aspiration for her was that she might end up cleaning white people's houses, because "they give away nice clothes." And then Oprah pointed out that now that she's Oprah, she has "all these white people" working for her, and that in fact there's only one black person on the staff. Way to turn the tables, girl.

Finally -- and this was just in the first fifteen minutes -- Oprah moved onto her most recent favorite topic, excrement. O assured Gayle that the reason she doesn't have children wasn't that she can't deal with poo, or "pooty," as the pair called it. For this -- and whatever follows -- is what XM is paying Oprah $55 million over the next three years.

yea im black and from the uk.ive read what she has said.no what she said was not a racist statement.all she was refering to is history what happened in HER life.can you relate.yes she is racist towards the black race (hates black men).what a fool.she has few afro folks around her because she scare there is many who could do her job.as for babys i don,t believe she can have any.if i remember right she was abused when she was young.come on america can,t you see what we see in the uk ,or are you just to close to the action.as for the comment from number 3 (She must have chosen intelligence over race)just goes to show your nose on your face is the distance measured beween your two ears..........think about it

I feel Oprah has forgot where she came from .she has all white folks working for her (they are making great salaries too)that is an insult to me ( I am black) and maybe others .So for her to brag about that, I think she needs to check herself.I use to love the Oprah show but not only does she have majority whites working ,she has majority white shows.So Oprah should think are The Whites working for Her or is She working for them.

"harpo" the whale is a prime example of what not to become. She's but a pompous asshole. I dont care where she came from, what her background, what she overcame. She's a loud mouthed, phony, hypocritical lardass. Lords herself over whitey? She will always be lower than whale shit with me. And thats on the bottom of the ocean.

Who is this "Maurice" ? Who gives a fiddlers fuck how much money per minute this pompous fat ass makes. She's still a biggoted lard ass. Phonier than a 3 dollar bill. And for all intents and purposes IS a racist! Makes not a damn bit of difference how rich this whale is. No matter how wealthy in all respects she may be. She damn sure aint takin it with her. The more she hords, the more someone else goes without. Dont tell me about what she gives away, builds, or whatever. She has become everything our children should aspire NOT to be.

#751 I think you have a problem here hon. She is not god we all know that, But the remarks she make's she has to step up to the plate for saying. Because of the comments she has made does'nt make her any better then the president. If the president made remarks like she did it would not stand!!! Just because she help's like most famous people doesn't give her the right to say what ever she feels like and get's away with it. If you know anything about her you will see that SHE doesn't give all that money over to people, She get's alot of money from outsiders so they get their company's name in the public!!! Get real we see you haven't done much with your life, so don't diss. like most said in recent comments you are why she is rich you buy her cloths books etc etc whatever you give and be proud!!! She is getting rich you poor that makes sence ok

My question is why a woman that has, in my book, everything good in her life, has to be so racist. Oprah is very polular, doesn't have to want for money like most of us, and above all a survivor or she wouldn't be where she is today. I don't go around saying I don't watch Oprah because she's black. Or, worst yet, she should be my maid. Oprah all I have to say is wake up and face reality, everyone is equal in this world, even though some of us have to "slave" to make a living or to get food for our families or ourselves. Love and respect are the keys to life no matter what color you are.

What a pompous bitch.

Everone knows Oprah is one of the most powerful and influential celebrities in this day & age, her rise to stardom is well-deserved, and it is well known that blacks were serverely mistreated in the past and still are to some extent by the white majority.

But, for goodness sakes, show some class Oprah. This is just like the black NFL players who have to perform a dancing jig in the endzone everytime they score a touchdown. We get it, you're special, you've made it, but have some dignity and stop trying to compensate for past wrongs to your race by showboating your "bling" and lording it over others. Who cares how many whites or blacks work for you? Oprah always makes a point to bring race into the conversation, so just remember Oprah, since it seems like such a sort point with you, all the money, wealth, power, and influence in the universe still doesn't make you white.

Need anyone remind her, that the abuse she has suffered was not at the hands of a White Man. Rather it was at the hands on of her own kind! If you have hate in your heart Oprah, lash out at your own kind. When was the last time somone made you rob a convenience store or rape a White Woman? NEVER! Don't you think that those whom engage in such criminal behavior, have earned the discrimination that you and others of your race whine about. In case you haven't noticed, Oprah has gradually become more open with her racist remarks. I believe that it generally has something to do with the apathetic attitudes of White People. White People have decided that it is easier and more politically correct to accept Negros' and their racist remarks. Yes the tables have turned and Negros cry racism whenever the opportunity presents itself. White People are complacent and just don't want the controversy. Quite frankly, she is the most ppowerful racist since MLK and beyond that she will eventually begin her crusade just as he did. Therein lies the potential for racial hatred. We all know what that leads to.

BJ's comment shows why the "race card" as people like to call it is still valid.

I hate that people say Oprah is 'powerfull'... why is she powerfull? Becasue she has money and popularity? BFD - who says money and popularity make someone powerful? She has one vote like the rest of us, she puts her pants on one leg at a time, she breaks a nail now and then, she gets a run in her hose..... She doesn't run this country or any other country, she is not God, she can't save a life like a doctor can... she can pay for the doctor for sure... but heal someone -- that is powerful. To whipe a babies tears and provide comfort to a person.... that is power. If 'power' is important and what you need as a way to get your self esteem boosted - rock on man. More power to you. Oprah runs her business and yes it is huge corporation but 'powerfull'? I can think of many words to describe Oprah: successful, intellegent, good looking with make-up, giving, and self absorbed. Anyone pointing out they have gold toilets and that white peopel make up her staff -is a self-absorbed braggert. WOW -- I feel really sad for her -- she is missing the big picture - like sand between your toes at the beach, like your grandchildren, like a handprint for mother's day. She doesn't have time to smell bread baking when you walk in the door on a rainy night. I wish her the best but is 'powerfull' the best she can be?

I agree very strongly with you "whatever" sounds like we have alot of jealous people writing nasty letters about a very nice lady, who buy the way does alot to help others, Black, White, Green it doesn't matter to her. You people need to stop being so negitive.
