Primus Mootry: Oprah's purse episode points to racist micro-insults

(Continued)

They say that all that is necessary for the forces of evil to win in this world is for enough good people to do nothing. They also say that silence means consent.

Who cares if a rich African-American woman can’t buy a purse somewhere overseas? The President of the United States is black, isn’t he? Oh, by the way, I’m selling the Eisenhower Bridge. Any buyers out there?

Have a nice day.
