Oprah Winfrey receives South African honorary doctorate – Chicago Sun-Times

BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa — Oprah Winfrey accepted an honorary degree from a central South African university infamous for troubled race relations, saying Friday the institution had turned an ugly experience into a model for confronting the challenges of reconciliation and remorse.

Winfrey came to a school where five years ago, four white students made a video humiliating black housekeeping staff — they are shown eating a stew the students had mimed spiking with urine — and expressing opposition to integrating the historically white University of the Free State. Jonathan Jansen, who in 2009 became the university’s first black rector, called for the four to be forgiven and rehabilitated.

    Ahhh, Doctor Fat Ass……I’m afraid her ship is going down. She can have all the $$$$$’s in the world but, at the end of the day when she looks in the mirror, she see’s the big, fat, black woman (?) that she hates. Sorry, Okra, that ain’t gonna change.

    And just what did Oprah do to deserve this “doctorate” in, I would imagine, asininity? Reaffirm her blackness?

    And what a coincidence that the First Parasite/Lady is down there at the same time, too. What are they doing, sniffing each other’s black arses like dogs in the same pack? Give me a break.

    I want one…but of course I would not want to do the work for it…afterall I am one of those lazy unemployeed tax money guzzling communist.

    afterall it is honorary, and based on some noteworthy effect, but a doctorate on my resume would be great for my job search.

    can I truly get one…..from somebody………..please…the baby needs some new shoes.
