“I did all this work to prove I’m black and all I got was this lousy Medal of Freedom.”
Oh Lawd! They done did it again! The Academy snubbed Oprah. Just after her snub at The Golden Globes. AND…she got out her best retro hat and worst wig looking like a cross between Sofia from The Color Purple and a black Ethel Mertz for her latest allegedly Oscar-worthy role as the wife of The Butler.
Oprah went to great lengths this year to prove her “blackness.” She hired Tyler Perry for her flailing cable network; claimed the world is full of unjust racist shootings of “multiple Trayvons"; allowed Michelle Obama to overstay her welcome at Oprah's private mansion in Hawaii for 10 days (while the Preezy and children went back to DC); accused a shop girl of racism during the Great Zurich Handbag Debacle; collected a Medal from the White House and Oprah even had the gumption (and lack of historical factual knowledge) to compare what happened to thug Trayvon Martin to the awful Emmett Till murder.
Maybe Jesse and Al can help? Better luck next time.
