“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]

I don’t really watch OWN, Oprah’s network-facing grasp at world domination, so I really miss my daily 4 p.m. check in with OWins. It seems I’m not the only one, as the folks over at Beloved have fashioned a sweatshirt from Ms. Winfrey’s face. Writ large across the body of the sweatshirt, this garment says, “I have no problems wearing someone else’s face all over my body.” If my life had gone in a different direction, one in which novelty sweatshirts were my main source of amusement, I would buy up everything on this site.

Oprah made an appearance in Vancouver yesterday, with tickets going for upwards of $350. But not everyone was overjoyed about the Big O’s Canadian visit. Glen Callender, founder of the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project, was there, along with his supporters, to protest Oprah’s endorsement of SkinMedica, a line of beauty products made with  “foreskin fibroblast.” Winfrey has called the product her “magic fountain of youth and miracle wrinkle cream.” Callender compared Oprah’s endorsement of SkinMedica to the condoning female genital mutilation.
