Blinded By Racism
The race problem/struggle has blinded many of us from seeing the real issue that is the class problem/struggle. I read yesterday where Oprah Winfrey stated that she experienced racism in Swiss store after trying to purchase a $38,000 bag. Maybe it's just me but racism should not be the issue here because there are millions of people whose annual income does not exceed $20,000 but there are bags that cost in excess of $30,000 that upper class individuals such as Oprah Winfrey buy just because. Something is definitely wrong with this. It's time for the truly oppressed to wake up!
