    What an obnoxious stuck up *****. The thing that especialy pisses me off is how much more racey of topics she can get away with discussing than my favorite local morning show. May the FCC rot in hell, and may Oprah simply be taken off the air.

    WEDNESDAY'S SHOW: A Special Presentation: Oprah and Elie Wiesel at the
    Auschwitz Death Camp

    Oprah and 'Night' author Elie Wiesel travel to the Auschwitz death camp
    in Poland. See the Holocaust through the eyes of a survivor.

    What is it about the pic that bothers you?
    And why is someone sending you a pic of Oprah ?

    The only thing odd about that picture is her face is distraught.

    For the record, I'm a disliker, not a hater. Being powerful doesn't necessarily mean you're worthy of adoration, either.

    Notice how, when powerful men are respected, even when disliked? Powerful women get no respect. Especially minority women of power.

    Condelleza Rice, Oprah, Anita Hill, Hillary Clinton, Koffee ( )...We as men need to get over it, and do what we need to do, without wasting time bringing down the strong.

    It's pretty sad, actually. Stupid neanderthals, ruining the man pool.

    No respect from who? You? Portis? Maybe I'm more Cro-Magnon than Neanderthal, but I have no problem showing respect to women in positions of authority. My boss is female and I have the utmost respect for her...yet, I still wanna do her. Actually, a lot of women, in my experience, have bigger(or maybe just different) problems with female authority figures than men. Maybe that's the problem: Men can't get past the sexual aspects of powerful women. I can keep the respect and attraction separate, but they're both still there.

    Oh, and sometimes the strong need to be brought down. Overall, tho, I think we're really in agreement. I'm just overly fond of playing Devil's Advocate, sometimes.

    Neither of these people are worthyu of respect
    Opera is stupd, racist and sexist and anybody with half a brain should be able to gather that from watching her show for 15 minutes. Not to mention obnoxious to boot.
    Hillary Clinton is the likely target behind pulling the trigger that killed Vincent Foster. Absolutely nothing to respect or like there.
    Koffee is hypocritcal and i would almsot use the term racist and sexist too. The only thing worth even nothing is that she knows nutrition and health but her attitude negates any respect or liking that i have for any human being.
    I have no idea who Anita Hill
    I have not see Rice do anything that deserves any sort of respect that is outside of the respect for anybody who does anything on this planet.

    Who do you respect? Also, what do you define as racist? Not picking a fight, just curious.

    My definition of racist changes for people in the media spotlight. As wth anything alot of it is tone of voice and how something is said and not necessarily what is said.

    I respect people who pioneered their way through. I respect people who stand by their morales and their values. And i respect people who didn't get there by blowing somebody's head off or by pulling unnecessary bigotry clout. It's extremely difficult to find these types of people today and I feel many of those that are usually are seldom ever recognized properly.

    By your standards, I feel we should all recognize Oprah Winfrey. Not deify, not worship, not grovel at her pedicured feet. Just respect and recognize.

    For what? for making racist/snide remarks at every available turn? ? for continuously supporting fraudulent books and products? For being and plain and simple idiot? The only reason she is on TV is because people are so brainwashed by that stuff that they've been desensitized to it and will watch just about any crap they serve up on tv. If tv tells them to watch 100 naked monkeys they watchit and then they say these 100 monkeys are the best and deserve to be respected. Granted I'd probably respet 100 dancing monkeys a bit more.

    But it's your opinion and this is mine and we're both entitled to it.

    Huh? I think it the response depends upon whether it's a chic or guy that's looking at these authority figures. Like Kaldar said, you pretty much want to nail 'em no matter what.

    Guys typically treat each other with some respect after the sizing up process. "Can I beat him up?" is typically something they assess subconsciously when meeting. They can get into a knock-down drag-out fight over something, even literally, then go grab a drink and be buds, even when one's up or down in position on the other.

    Women on the other hand, deal with each other in a differnet matter. They seem to think "Am I prettier than her?" as the subsconcious judgement. And women are so much harsher on either than guys are when it comes to authority and hierarchial structures. Many of my '90s feminist friends say that the biggest impediment to women advancing is other women!

    Very very true. Women and Men treat same-sex rivals and competition very differently. There are some things that women finesse better then men, but overall I think that men as a whole usually have a better time dealing with and respecting competition, and those that they don't like. That's just based off of my experience so ymmv

    Something about the picture seems like Oprah is doing her best to look distraught. I dunno. Perhaps she truly is. I can't read her heart.

    It just seems a far cry from the lavish jewelry and dinner she showered on other powerful black women and had televised the other night on prime time. It's like she can turn on and off the emotions.

    I do respect her philanthropy and how influential she is to get people to read stuff like Tolstoy and Steinbeck. That's putting power to good use.

    Seriously, I'm just irritated with Oprah. She sells melodrama to the masses and I'm sick of it. I'm tired of watching her tell a bunch middle class married housewives how to live and raise children.

    She is ridiculously wealthy and has never had a husband or children. Yet she freakin knows everything. She mixes in enough emotion and charity work to fool most people into buying her song.

    Does she care about people and wordly issues? Yeah, probably but I think she really only cares about Oprah. That makes her a lot like most other Americans. She ain't "all that."

    Have you read Night by Elie Wiesel? You should, no matter your opinion of Oprah. It's one of the more important works of 20th century literature.

    You'll understand his expression a little better after a read though his hell.

    Actually I was referring to his head gear, not his expression.
