Oprah on the N-word

“You cannot be my friend and use that word around me. It shows my age, but I feel strongly about it. … I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.”

Oprah Winfrey stars in the upcoming Lee Daniels film “The Butler,” about a Black man who works in the White House, and explained in an interview with Parade how she got Daniels to stop saying the N-word, as he put it, “quite a bit.” I don’t think Oprah’s opinion about that slur are showing her age; instead they show her commitment to social justice. Elsewhere in the interview, she is asked about what young people know about the civil rights movement today: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat!” [Parade] [Image via Fame/Flynet]
