Here’s why Oprah should run for president
disguises (although Alabama is an example of how unstoppable black folk are when they decide to be.) Blacks are still killed by police officers who largely go unpunished. Dog whistles from Trump and his crew make no secret of their true feelings about the black and brown citizens of this great land; that was built by and on the backs of blacks. The Ku Klux Klan even experienced a re-birth; pulling out their dingy white sheets; apparently seeing in Trump the all clear for unbridled hatred and its according violence.
Ideally, the next three years will suffice for the ‘chemicalization’ process to allow most, if not all the remaining racial gunk to surface so we can deal with it. A President Winfrey would be the ideal leader to guide us through the morass. Oprah can convene friends like Deepak Chopra, Iyanla Vanzant, Ekhart Tolle and Tony Robbins; spiritual giants capable of crafting a soulful blueprint to truly make America great.
Oprah has demonstrated a proven ability to connect with the souls of all folk. During the phenomenal 25-year run of the Oprah Winfrey Show, she helped people come face to face with the truest parts of themselves. Her message of living your best life resonated with people from various racial persuasions, both genders and all walks of life. Oprah has a way of nudging people to search their souls and her finger remains on the pulse of what we all have in common.
African-Americans and America’s fractured relationship with them represent America’s best opportunity to heal. Race, more than any other issue, continues to be what blocks the United States from realizing its truest potential. Oprah as president would push unhealed white America to choose: Continue living ignorantly from its misconceived notion of white supremacy. Or tap into the authenticity of its soul and either participate in the country’s complete healing or step aside and let the rest of us do the work unimpeded.
