Oprah Winfrey: President Barack Obama is disrespected because hes black

I'm so tired of the race card and I think it's been so overplayed that it's actually creating race problems instead of solving them. People like her and other democrats don't actually believe that a person would have the gall to dislike the president for any other reason other than the half-color of his skin. It wouldn't dare be because he's by far the worst president of my lifetime. It wouldn't dare be because of the increase in taxes, obamacare, immigration "reform" ideas, illegal misuse of powers, Benghazi, IRS Scandal, NSA Scandal, poor economy--still or any other problem.

Oprah Winfrey has never been one to hold her tongue.

That remained true when she sat down with BBC's Will Gompertz and detailed how no one is above the racism that still exists in this world today not even the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

"There's a level of disrespect for the office that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he's African American," she said. "There's no question about that. And it's the kind of thing no one ever says, but everybody's thinking it."

...blah blah blah

"There are still generations of older people who were born and breed and marinated in that prejudice and racism and they just have to die," she added.

I thought we would see/hear less of her once her TV show went away. Guess not, i hear about her more than ever now.

So knowing that it's out there, but not exactly to what degree, the trick is to combat it (through education, ideally), without turning it into a national witch-hunt.

I don't have time to read the whole article, but the main way in which I disagree with Oprah in that short blurb in the OP is when she says it's disrespect for the office. It's not, most of the time; it's disrespect for the man. The next President, if they're white, won't have any residual effects.
There is zero doubt that it exists, which seems to be what she was saying. I'm not sure how one would go about accurately quantifying it, though, and I'm not sure why one would.

I can certainly see why no one on Barry's side would want to quantify the fraction of opposition to his idiocy that's due to racism. My guess is that number would be so tiny that it would be instantly identified as nothing but a red herring. Better to continue to try to guilt whitey into silence whenever possible and as long as he'll put up with it.

It's better to just keep saying it exists and thereby painting the entire opposition as racist. Which is basically what goes on.
Some people like Thatguy explicitly just say it. Then you have other people who just post any story they can find about racist remarks about Obama, and let that reflect on the opposition. In a way I have more respect for Thatguy.
Often the same people happy to generalize Obama opposition as racists are the ones that react to a posted thread where an African American has committed a crime by saying, "You're unfairly generalizing many based on a few. You're race baiting."
