How can Oprah lecture White People on "White Privilege"?

Oprah Winfrey is engaging and shaming white people to accept that White People have privilege, coming from a Billionaire Black Woman. How is that appropriate?

    She cannot but it demonstrates that many African American insist on being seen as a victim, even multi-billionaires. Liberals have their narrative of "White privilege" and no amount of discussion or debate will alter their determination to hammer Caucasians for their "crime" of being born White which of course comes with a host of privileges that NO African American could ever aspire to have. It's telling that she lectures the "Little People" and not her many Caucasian millionaire and billionaire friends and colleges.

  • Because she is racist and she did say on one of her episodes when she had her own talk show that she did not like white ppl.

    So watch it she might rin for Pres next time around!

    Just because she has a lot of money doesn't mean she is in charge of our country.

    She is a self-made billionaire who grew up in foster care as an incest survivor. It's not like she was born rich. She is richly-detached from all that now but she knows what the real world is like.

    Unfortunately, terms wind up getting attached to things even when the wording doesn't do a good job of describing the situation.

    The term "White Privilege" makes it seem like a white cop will NEVER give a white driver a traffic ticket -- implying that the whole purpose of the police force is to harass minorities, with whites getting an automatic pass.

    However, regarding your question, it's possible for a white male cop to not automatically recognize Oprah.  And, of course, she wasn't ALWAYS rich and famous, so she can be speaking from past experiences.

    At the same time, she is representing a certain constituency, so, she doesn't have to be talking about her own experiences.

    Meanwhile, I don't know exactly what she's been saying.

    The same way Taylor Swift writes songs complaining about male privilege?
