    She's right, white skinned people are always given preferential treatment, over darker skinned people.  Don't forget she's worked for her lifestyle.  If you trace 'old money' wealthy families, it's most likely that their money was made, by oppression and by taking advantage of other's, through slavery or charging Tenants on 'their' land huge sums, to farm their land.

    In general white people are more privileged than others. Look at the average income of whites versus that of others. Oprah is an exception to the rule, both because she is a woman and because she is black. Usually women earn less money than men.

    As an aside, I am a white woman and I admire Oprah. I think she is a great speaker.

    Those who complain the most about privilege are often the most privileged and pampered sections of society.

    I am sure "it's all about money for you", but "white privilege" has NOTHING to do with money.  It's how store clerks follow black people around stores "because they are probably shoplifting", assume that black people "dropped out of high school", are "single mothers", and "eat fried chicken every day".  Yes, I'm sorry to inform you that the vast majority of black people don't do such things, and Oprah herself (she has mentioned this several times) faced these things before her face was known around the world.

    Oprah Winfrey is not your typical black woman any more than Barack Obama is your typical black man.

    Statistically, the fact that white women have much better opportunities, end up with much higher salaries, face less domestic violence, live longer etc is undeniable.

    Yeah, it is interesting to hear the exception to the rules (um, statistics) speak up, but the numbers don't lie.

    And she is the exception not the rule, how many Black people don’t even own 1 house.

    This is cultural Marxism. Classic Marxism was about CLASS oppression, more along the lines of reality. But cultural Marxism is about race and sex and political affiliation and sexual orientation. Oprah is “oppressed” under two “victim” groups (race and sex). A white homeless man will be privileged by those same two groups.  This is how elementary, and wrong cultural Marxism is. It should be so obvious. Yet so many people have been brainwashed into this exact line of thinking today using identity politics.

    Cultural Marxism is also blind to Establishment power and control and thus is promoted by them which helps them to divide and conquer (control) the masses.
