Interesting take that I had never considered, carter. So, basically, a segment of the black population is taking the heat on Obama as having no rationale other than rascism? Wow. Even MY glasses aren't that "tinted", and I still like the guy.
I struggle to see O's point. PTSD? Perhaps. But would it not have been better for her - as all of us - to deal w/ it in private? Must she "air her dirty laundry" in public?
I cannot help but think that there are politics involved. Castigate me - no, I did not go to see "The Butler." But the previews were enough to anger me so much that I couldn't go to see it. And Oprah shouted from the mountain tops about this flick; she endorsed it. My gripes over "The Butler:"
1) History shows John F. Kennedy's commitment to civil rights. He did not need White House staff to "egg him on." JFK's only problem was w/ Southern Democrats - who battled him tooth & nail;
2) The "evil" gun toting Black Panthers never ambushed police, as per the movie. Indeed, it exactly was the other way around (thanks Daryl Gates & LAPD). This I believe was the moviemaker's swipe at lawful private gun ownership - on the rise in the Black community.
This is politics, pure & simple. I have problems (we all do!!) some possibly apparent in my posts. But any big things don't leave my head, let alone my house. And certainly not on a public forum.
And should I become rich & famous I still will not use the airwaves as my "psychiatrist's couch."
