Oprah Winfrey Awarded Highest Civilan Honor Just Days After Accusing Americans of Disrespecting Obama Because He’s Biracial
How do you earn the highest civilian award offered by the White House? Just accuse all white Americans of being racists.
Critics are saying it’s no coincidence that President Obama honored Oprah with the Presidential Medal of Freedom just days after she accused white Americans of disrespecting Obama because he is half black.
It took 5 years for President Obama to honor Oprah with any type of award after she threw her powerful support behind him during the 2008 presidential elections.
Rap producer Kanye West is back in the news after he accused President Barack Obama of using him for political purposes.
“I’m not gonna mention him no more, I’m past that,” West said in a radio interview on Philadelphia’s Hot 107.9 on Monday. West told radio hosts Shamara and Laiya that he would never break bread with Obama. “That’s out my thoughts. That’s lowering my priority of thinking at this point.”

A WNBA player who came out against same-sex marriage yesterday was attacked and dragged on Twitter for her beliefs.
Sophia Young, 29, who plays for the San Antonio Silver Stars, tweeted a photo of herself holding up a placard that read “Vote No” outside the San Antonio City Hall, where hundreds of people prayed against a proposed LGBT anti-discrimination bill. The devout Christian mistook the anti-discrimination legislation for a bill legalizing same-sex marriage.
Instead of gently correcting her, Twitter users came for her throat with the same hatred and vitriol that they despise.
One Twitter user, @ChristopherFTL, tweeted “Bitch, are you really that dumb? Your mama must’ve been hitting the crack pipe while pregnant with your ugly ass.”
President Obama has angered conservatives (and especially Fox News) with his latest statements on the controversial Zimmerman verdict. Obama said he could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago.
He said he too was followed in stores because of his skin color. Obama questioned the outcome if Trayvon had been white and had a gun that night.
“If a white male teen would have been involved in this scenario, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different,” Obama said.
Singer/DJ Solange Knowles was among the demonstrators taking to the streets around the country to protest the acquittal of the man charged with killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Solange participated in a rally for Trayvon at Brooklyn’s Borough Hall, in Brooklyn, NY, on Sunday — one day after a Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman on all charges. Solo’s more famous sister, Beyonce, asked for a moment of silence during her concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. “I’d like to have a moment of silence for Trayvon,” said Beyonce on Saturday, about 30 minutes after the verdict was announced. President Barack Obama called for calm after the verdict. And the Dept. of Justice says it will review the case to see if Zimmerman violated Trayvon’s civil rights.
