Oprah Strikes Again

Why does Oprah keep hitting white men?

This is the question that ran through my mind after reading an article in a recent issue of Rolling Stone.  If you don’t know which one I’m talking about, then it is the one with Nicki Minaj on the cover.  I’m sure that most of you can remember her image on the front, especially you guys.  Anyway, as expressed by the article written by Peter Travers the movie Selma is slated to be a pivotal one given the timeliness of it.  Just as the movie itself I’m sure will be memorable the performances of the actors who portray people at a very turbulent time in America’s history will stake their claim at the forefront of our minds.  Now, I will get back to my question.  Oprah is one of those actors and she portrays Annie Lee Cooper.  Annie Lee Cooper as the article states decked a white sheriff for denying her right to vote.  Did you just get deja vu like I did?  Although, Oprah has made a name for herself as an actress, the role that she is most known for is the one in the movie The Color Purple.  Her character, Sofia, when she felt that she was being mistreated assaulted a white man and paid dearly for doing so.  So what do you think?
