This is the first blog for my “Juliana’s Not So Politically Correct” Facebook page. Soon, there will be videos. But for now, the blogs will have to do! First of all, this particular blog is in regard to Oprah Winfrey’s statements at the Golden Globes and one very disturbing statement she made in the past. She talked about in an interview, how “people who were born and bred in racism had to die.” These were the “older generation of people,” some who might still be alive. Let me say, this is a disgrace to Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement. Not once, NO NOT ONCE did he ever say anything so disgusting. In fact Oprah, what you stated is the exact opposite of what Martin Luther King Jr. stood for. Here, let me refresh your memory.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?”
“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive, is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”
Martin Luther King Jr. was a man of love. If he heard what you said about how those people had to die, he would roll over in his grave. Why? Because of love. He knew what racism and hate felt like. He saw how it mangled and ripped apart a culture of innocent people, who were judged by the color of their skin. Yet, have you not made yourself just as guilty as the whites who did that by talking murder? Oprah, you sound like a bored billionare who needs a reality check.
Furthermore, let’s talk about your Golden Globe speech. Well, at least a section of it. To talk as if everyone’s “truth” is supposed to be empowering, is pain and simple bullshit! You have left it wide open for zero accountability. Because if everyone’s truth is “your truth,” then who is to say which truth is wrong and which truth is right? Basically, you have acted like, my truth, your truth, the truth of those who are actually evil, is truth. There again, where is the accountability? If everyone’s truth is truth, even the thoughts of doing harm to others, then it must be okay because it is their truth. Do you realize how absolutely stupid this sounds? This kind of talk is dangerous. The problem is that you have a broad influence of people, who actually look up to you and this is what you tell them? Then to hear you want to run for the Presidency? Are you kidding me? No seriously…ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! I pray that it will be a cold day in HELL before you ever are elected President.
Oprah, go back and learn from Martin Luther King Jr. Go back and understand that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. If you want to guage truth, read the Bible. Remember, Martin Luther King Jr. was a godly man. He made the decision to stick to love, UNDER CIRCUMSTANCES THAT YOU WILL NEVER KNOW. Why? Because he said that hate was too much of a burden to bear.
We all need to stick to love; follow the Golden Rule and be kind! There is too much hate in this world. We need to be good people. We need to love each other; build each other up and just be caring. We need to help our neighbors; check on the ederly; let someone in front of us at the grocery store line; give our time and just show we care. The greatest form of truth – is love!
Till next time,
