Oprah Gets Bashed By Ted Cruz For Saying "Whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter what”

On April 4th, The Blaze posted a tweet about their article on Oprah Winfrey about a recent episode on her series called "The Oprah Converstion". The episode was titled “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1” — featuring former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho. Oprah also invited several white people to discuss “racism,” “white privilege,” and “whiteness.

Rafael Ted Cruz got upset and offended by Oprah's statement and proceeds to call it "racist":





Here's the clip from the episode:

OP Note: When will white people understand that 'white privilege' doesn't mean that you haven't had a hard life, it means that your race wasn't a contributing factor. They stay being obtuse and tone deaf.
