Oprah Winfrey is worth $2.8 billion and complains that a lowly shop girl wouldn’t show her a $38,000 Tom Ford bag in a Zurich boutique.

You’d think that she has something better to do than accuse a shop girl of racism. She has the world by the throat, but now she wants to co-opt racism. She wants to feel like she is a home girl so that she doesn’t have to feel guilty for being so much richer than her sisters.

Shame on Oprah. She is not a homey. She is a billionaire who has no clue as to what prejudice is. She lives in a world of praise and fan adoration. Why she wants us to feel sorry for her, I have no clue. She is a private-jet liberal.

The only prejudice she experiences is the bias of being given absolute privilege. And yet she wants to pretend that she is a disadvantaged sister while she is spoiled billionaire.
