Oprah Winfrey sat down with Larry King last week and during the interview she recounted some racist moments she personally had encountered. One of the stories was a recent encounter in Switzerland, where a woman working at a handbag store told her “she couldn’t afford a $40,000 handbag,” presumably because of her race.
“I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I’m really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was Switzerland.”
She shouldn’t be apologizing for anything, the exact opposite should be true. The unnamed, by Oprah, handbag store should come forward and apologize. Unless she made the story up.
But do you think Oprah would make up a story like this?
