Tommy Chong

My Daughter Was Right

Oprah Would Have Been a Field N-Word

7/25/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

072413_tommy_chong_launchTommy Chong is defending his daughter Rae Dawn -- telling TMZ she was just being honest when she said Oprah would have been a "field" N-word back in the slave days ... because that's just the way things were.

"If you think of what [Rae] said, she said back in the day Oprah would be working in the field because she's not that beautiful  ... whereas if you're beautiful, you're part of the master's bedroom."

Tommy continues, "Knowing Oprah, she would probably read [Rae's comments] and just chuckle and probably agree with Rae Dawn ... she probably would be working in the field."

There's more ... Tommy says he doesn't think Oprah would have STAYED in the field during slave times, because she would have used her "charm and intelligence" to become a "house lady."

And even though Rae called Oprah fat and ugly and a "brown-noser" ... Tommy still thinks there's a chance Rae and O could work together again in the future.

Dude, how HIGH are you??

There is too much ignorance in this family; a genetic mutation called hoof in mouth disease. Because you can use a derogatory term word does not mean that you should. His people have been characterized negatively as he would also be a field N...a and so would his daughter. Both you crawl back into the hole of obscurity.

It appears TMZ likes to keep stirring the "racial" pot and using stumble tongued photogs to do so.

Any serious discussion about a racial divide in this country, surely will not be hosted by TMZ.

Moron. Your beauty did not dictate where you worked as a slave. You worked in the house if you were a domestic.
