Elaine Carter I really appreciate you taking the time to respond. You’re right, I wouldn’t have referenced Shirley MacLaine’s race. I think it’s important to acknowledge Oprah’s accomplishments, at least partially, in terms of what she has achieved as an African-American woman. She is a pioneer and I believe she has opened the doors for future black Americans Isn’t that fair to point out? In the same way we do with Jackie Robinson, I think it is. Nothing but respect!
