Where in the World is Oprah Winfrey?

This has been on my mind for a long time.

As the political nightmare awash in this country continues to unfold in its hideous way, celebrities as well as politicians continue to come out of the woodwork for one side or the other and offer their thoughts.

One woman, who has been well known to sponsor good causes for the benefit of humanity and equality, has been absent from this scene.

Where in the world is Oprah Winfrey?

I must admit that I keep thinking that she is in the background, waiting for the right moment to enter the fray, offer her thoughts, and help us with the scandalous and frightening situation that I believe was gotten illegally by the person currently in office, ‘he who shall not be named.’

That woman has power and I am sure she is well aware of it. Perhaps that is why she is waiting for the proper moment to strike.

As events seem to spiral from bad to worse, I continue to worry. Germany in 1939 looks so similar. Events keep piling up and documents are signed, and our supposed leader is doing things that continue to deflect our eyes from what we should be watching, as little by little he is removing the liberties and gains in equality for all that have been worked for so hard and even paid with blood by so many.

Although the events have brought many of us together, I cannot help but notice that our minorities are running scared, and with good reason, and they are starting to doubt the fact that any white people can have good intentions or others’ welfare in mind. We are privileged whites and we have no clue what it is to be like otherwise.

Something good needs to happen.

Oprah, please help. You alone cannot do it but together we can work toward progress, not loss of liberty.
