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.

Oprah comments are stupid. The LAPlaywrs choose to live the Americans dream of basketball. The money these players make is unreal. If that is a plantation everybody would be a slave with millions of dollars in their hands. Oprah is saying the NBA is a plantation and everybody should quit playing basketball. Oprah is also saying Africans Americans need to stay away from basketball and find other jobs. Thanks for speaking for your race Oprah and putting the word out aghast basketball and the NBA. : )

Top 3 things racists say when they are defending their own.
1. That black person said something racist. Why is there nobody complaining about that?
2. Blacks say the word ni@@er all the time, why do they get mad when someone else does?
3.Why don't Al Sharpton and his race pushers come around when theirs a hate crime against the white man?

Go to any thread that has a racial issue and you will see one of these questions guaranteed.

First of all, your embarrassing for letting this man love you and putting him on blast for publicity, biting the hand that feeds you! This man is mainly concerned with your instagram whoredom and his judgmental associates. We all know by now that out of the top few white seniors that own these teams, some are still racist. If you genuinely cared about this issue you would try to help him overcome this mental barrier or not be with him at all. Instead you suck off him for fame. Classy. This guy is clearly jealous and fears public opinion, suggesting his associates are racist and foolish. They and their respective companies should be boycotted. GUYS, this whole industry is racist, from the owners to the sponsors, like NIKE, who pay billions to athletes to promote their products to young black poor kids at 100 x the price their worth, after paying poor kids slave wages to make them overseas . It's a global issue and everyone needs to recognize their part of the problem, from consumers to athletes.

O Op-frah! Like you never said anything inappropriate or racist in the privacy of your own home. Come on!
Since when don't we have the right of freedom of speech in our own home. I don't agree what this Di.ck said or what I ever say it. But I do agree what you say in private should be kept in private. This girl is extorting him. That's worst than be racist in your own home.

Oprah "Every thing is racist if I don't get my way" Winfrey hardly has the credentials to speak on this issue.
