Oprah Winfrey

Hey Donald Sterling ...

THE PLANTATION DAYS ARE OVER!

4/29/2014 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Oprah Winfrey Donald SterlingOprah Winfrey just came out firing at Donald Sterling -- telling TMZ Sports, "We're off the plantation! The plantation days are over!"

The Big O just broke her silence on the Sterling situation while leaving CBS in NYC -- and told us the ideal resolution would be for Magic Johnson to take over the Clips ... "That would be really cool."

But despite the impact of the Sterling story -- and the fact President Obama even weighed in -- Oprah says it's not the biggest story of her lifetime ... that distinction goes to ANOTHER big case involving a huge sports star. 

Check out the clip.

It's kind of funny. Sterling never said a damn thing about plantations, slavery or even Jim Crow. Shoot, he never even said blacks were inferior. He just stated he didn't want his mistress seen in public with a black people. Why? Who knows. Maybe he just simply doesn't like black people in general. I know there are a hell of a lot of blacks who don't like white people, in general. But, the blacks are spectacularly good at discriminating themselves. They are great at it. Just give them a little bit, a little reason, and they will explode it into a full scale racist/slavery/plantation/jim crow bonanza. They will whip themselves up into a white hot frenzy about how terrible it all is and all was in the past for them. Oh God almighty, they will set themselves apart and make sure everyone hears it. Blacks, do yourselves a favor. Just shrug it off. Say, "He doesn't like blacks. Huh, that's strange". People will think a hell of a lot more of you.

Can't we all do what rodney king said get along. And to black people stop calling each other ******s that just sends the wrong message. I was taught and to this day have never used that word and I'm white and 55. Stop the hate people come on!

oprah, like obama, are as guilty as sterling for helping racism prosper ... for with all their power and money, they have done little to nothing to stop all forms of racism ... except of course enrich themselves

La Riots, a white truck driver is dragged out and beaten, for no reason other then skin colour. Stick and Stones, do break bones! Sterling used words, and it looks like the names DO hurt you. Too bad actions speak louder then words!

"and the fact President Obama even weighed in" --- It's not like President Golf Club had anything more important to do. Anytime he can strut over racial stuff, he does. Glad I didn't vote for this mess.

Just curious why no one is really calling out the Whore? Mistress, girlfriend, bragging about being a sugar baby and illegally taping numerous conversations? Accepting how many millions of $ worth of gifts ans such. The word whore has yet to be brought into this. Doesn't something smell a little fishy to you in all of this? Even a few of her neighbors have gone on record about the amount of men frequenting here residence? Sterling is an idiot. But that's nothing new. How about doing some investigative work into HER background with her 5+ aliouses?
