Oprah Apologizes For Stirring Up Controversy Over A Racist Store-clerk!

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.

Seems to be a likely racist encounter, right?  So why did Oprah release an apology?

“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.”

I’m really confused by this one. You have what seems to be a legit racist incident and yet somehow the victim ends up apologizing. I don’t get it.  I think it’s important for many people to see that racism exists all over the world and even the very famous people are experiencing it.

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?

    Well at least she apologizes, but if I were Oprah I'd do the same since she embarrassed her I'd use that sales woman stupidity to my advantage also
