Oprah Gail Winfrey is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist. She is best known for her talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, which was the highest-rated program of its kind in history and was nationally syndicated from 1986 to 2011. Dubbed the "Queen of All Media", she has been ranked the richest African-American of the 20th century, the greatest black philanthropist in American history, and is currently America's first and only multi-billionaire black
Billionaire media entrepreneur, beloved by her largely white following, but who can't stop resenting white people. A longtime Obama idolator, Oprah Winfrey was instrumental in the president's rise. She invited Obama on her TV show to promote one of his books and promoted him relentlessly.
Despite all evidence to the contrary, Winfrey insists on blaming the killing of Trayvon Martin on racial animosity. “To me, it's ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved," she said.
She also likened the killing of [Trayvon] Martin to the brutal 1955 murder of 14-year-old black Emmett Till. "In my mind, same thing,” she said. Till was kidnapped by two white men in Mississippi who beat him, gouged out one of his eyes, shot him in the head, and dumped his body into a river. His death helped to galvanize the early civil rights movement.
