Picking up steam on Twitter is the hashtag #OprahKnew accompanied by photos of an obviously chummy Winfrey nuzzling with and even kissing Weinstein:
#OprahKnew: Oprah Presidential Talk Renews Questions About Swiss Race Hoax, Her Buddy Harvey Weinstein
- Oprah Winfrey accused a Swiss shopgirl of racism, who openly declared Winfrey a liar
- Winfrey backed off with a non-apology apology about being “sorry” that the incident “got blown up.”
- British actress Kadian Noble accused Harvey Weinstein of using his friend Oprah Winfrey and model Naomi Campbell to seduced her
- It was an ‘open secret’ in Hollywood that Oprah’s friend Harvey Weinstein was sexually assaulting and raping young women, yet Oprah was silent.
Back in late November, Oprah’s name was dragged into the Weinstein scandal when British actress Kadian Noble, who has filed an 11 page complaint against the former mogul, alleged, among other terrible things, that Weinstein got to her through Winfrey and model Naomi Campbell.
“An aspiring actress says Harvey Weinstein used Oprah Winfrey and Naomi Campbell to dupe her into thinking he would help her with her career — only to use her for sex,” Page Six reported.
OPRAH PLAYED A FAKE RACE CARD
Winfrey also found herself in hot water in 2013 when, without any proof, she appeared to manufacture a racial controversy in order to promote her latest movie, Lee Daniels’s The Butler. Appearing on Entertainment Tonight, Winfrey accused a Swiss shopgirl of racism.
“I say to the woman, ‘Excuse me, may I see that [$38,000 purse] right above your head?’ And she says to me, ‘No, it’s too expensive.’ … She refused to get it,” Winfrey dramatically explained.
But Winfrey refused to back up her story by identifying the store or the “racist” clerk. Eventually, though, the store and the shopgirl were located, and the young woman accused of racism by the most powerful woman in the world, openly declared Winfrey a liar:
I didn’t hurt anyone. I don’t know why someone as great as her must cannibalize me on TV. … If it had all taken place as she claimed, why has she not complained the next day at the wedding of Tina Turner with Trudie Goetz, my boss? She was there also at the Turner wedding as a guest. I don’t understand it. … I spoke to Oprah Winfrey in English. My English is OK but not excellent, unfortunately. … I didn’t know who she was when she came into the store. That wouldn’t have made any difference if I had.
And what was Winfrey’s bizarre response to this hideous “racist” adding insult to injury by declaring her a liar? Outrage? Fury? Nope. Winfrey backed off with a non-apology apology about being “sorry” that the incident “got blown up.”
- “Farmers’ markets are often white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.”
- “ Farmers markets attract households from higher socio-economic backgrounds, raising property values and displacing low-income residents and people of color.”
Fox News reports:
Two California professors are criticizing farmers’ markets for causing “environmental gentrification” in which “habits of white people are normalized.”
San Diego State University geography professors Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J. Bosco contend that farmers’ markets are “white spaces” oppressing minorities in a chapter for “Just Green Enough,” an environmental anthology focused on urban development.
Environmental gentrification is defined as a process where “environmental improvements lead to … the displacement of long-term residents,” according to the anthology.
The professors, as reported by Campus Reform, say farmers’ markets are “exclusionary” because locals cannot “afford the food and/or feel excluded from these new spaces.”
The SDSU professors, who teach classes like “Geography of Food” and “Food Justice,” argue that “farmers’ markets are often white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.”
While such markets are typically set up to help combat “food deserts” in low-income and minority communities, the academics argue that they instead “attract households from higher socio-economic backgrounds, raising property values and displacing low-income residents and people of color.”

- The N-word was written with yellow paint across the rear windshield of the car.
- Other racially offensive language — “White’s Only,” “Die,” and “Date your own kind,” was also painted on the windshield and side doors of the car.
An incident in which racist slurs were painted on a car near the Kansas State University campus last week was a hoax, and the man who painted the slurs has apologized.
Riley County Police reported Monday afternoon that the owner of the car, Dauntarius Williams, 21, of Manhattan, admitted to investigators he was responsible for the graffiti.
Last Wednesday Riley County Police Department were called to an apartment parking lot on Claflin Road and found a car that had been defaced with racial slurs and threats.
The N-word was written with yellow paint across the rear windshield of the car. Other racially offensive language — “White’s Only,” “Die,” and “Date your own kind,” was also painted on the windshield and side doors of the car.
Reports of the incident led African American students on the campus to call a meeting that evening to talk about possible racism near the K-State campus.
Andrew Hammond, a journalism student at K-State and one of the first to tweet out photos of Williams’ car, told The Star Monday evening he was “outraged and hurt” to learn about the fraud.
He said Williams contacted him after seeing his tweets about the car graffiti, and the two talked about the incident.
“As a black student who has witnessed racist incidents first-hand around Manhattan this hurts the credibility of students who actually want to step out and say something about it,” Hammond said. “I’m not sure what type of human being does this kind of thing as a prank.”
Detroit firefighter Robert Pattison was fired before he officially began his first day on the job for bringing a ‘racially insensitive’ watermelon.
DETROIT (WJBK) – Earlier this month, 41-year-old Robert Pattison went to introduce himself to his fellow firefighters at Engine 55 at Joy and Southfield in Detroit. Second Battallion Chief Shawn McCarty calls it a tradition for firefighters.
“It’s not mandatory, it’s voluntary,” he says. “You come in bearing gifts. The usual gift is doughnuts, but you are allowed to bring whatever you want to bring in.”
And Pattison, a probationary firefighter, decided to bring a watermelon wrapped in a pink ribbon. We’re told some African-American firefighters were instantly offended, since 90 percent of the people who work at Engine 55 are black.
FOX 2: “Is it racially insensitive to bring a watermelon into a fire house?”
“To some people,” McCarty says.
FOX 2 spoke to Pattison by phone, who claims it was not a joke – and he did not mean to offend his fellow firefighters. But he clearly did. Fire Commissioner Eric Jones says the Fenton native was officially discharged.
In a statement Jones says: “There is zero tolerance for discriminatory behavior inside the Detroit Fire Department. On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, at Engine 55, a trial firefighter (probationary employee) engaged in unsatisfactory work behavior which was deemed offensive and racially insensitive to members of the Detroit Fire Department.
“After a thorough investigation, it was determined that the best course of action was to terminate the employment of this probationary employee.”
- Cesar de Leon : “There are a couple of f—-ing n—–s that Luis Saenz is getting, and I don’t know where he is getting them from. They are coming down to my f—ing city and now they are trying to f—ing put everybody in jail because they think we are a bunch of Mexicans that hit our wives,”
- “There are a couple of n—–s in there that think that all of us are f—ing taco eaters.”
( NBC News ) Texas lawmaker who used racial slurs to describe two African-American prosecutors says he will not resign.
In a city hall meeting Tuesday night, Brownsville city commissioner at-large Cesar De Leon publicly apologized for his remarks and said he does not condone or practice racism.
“I made a terrible mistake, but please believe, I still stand against injustice, unfair, and unlawful treatment of any American regardless of race, religion, age or social standing,” De Leon said in remarks that were posted on YouTube. “I will not stop honoring my commitment to the people of Brownsville, nor will I back down in my fight for our great community.”
In September, a recording of De Leon using the n-word and f-word to describe the prosecutors was posted on social media, which has since been taken down.
“There are a couple of f—-ing n—–s that Luis Saenz is getting, and I don’t know where he is getting them from. They are coming down to my f—ing city and now they are trying to f—ing put everybody in jail because they think we are a bunch of Mexicans that hit our wives,” De Leon said according to The Brownsville Herald. “They are f—ing … and I would say this, that I would never dare use that word, but you know what, yes, there are a couple of n—–s in there that think that all of us are f—ing taco eaters.”
De Leon also apologized in an interview with the Herald, and said his comments were private and were never meant to be public.
The “Look at Me” video by rapper XXXTentacion shows a scene where he slips a noose around a white child’s neck before pulling on another rope and hanging him. The boy is seen writhing around as the black child looks up at him . XXXTentacion conceived and directed the video.
Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars breaks down the video:
The video for the song Look at Me begins by showing XXXTentacion inciting a riot in a school classroom before a mob beats up a white teacher with dildos while he raps about how he “can’t keep my dick in my pants.”
The rapper is then seen hanging from a tree while he makes references to the murders and beatings of Emmett Till, Philando Castile, Rodney King, as well as the recent violence in Charlottesville.
Before going on a long monologue about racial injustice, the scene cuts to two children, one white one black, being led towards a noose. XXXTentacion then puts the noose over the white boy’s head before pulling on another rope and hanging him. The boy is seen writhing around as the black child looks up at him.
- Dan Bongino: ‘Apparently, Condemning Irma Looters Makes You Racist’
- Florida looting crackdown is ‘white supremacy,’ claims author Sarah Jaffe
Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino blasted critics who he said labeled him a racist for previously condemning looters in Florida.
“Apparently… discussing looting now makes you a racist,” he said.
Bongino, who lives in Florida, said those who are burglarizing stores during Hurricane Irma are “hack, phony frauds who have no lives.”
He said the political left makes excuses for looters during natural disasters because their livelihoods are “based off clickbait.”
