Oprah labeled a ‘fraud’ for calling out ‘white privilege’ since she’s so rich
Winfrey responded, “There are white people who are not as powerful as the system of white people — the caste system that’s been put in place. But they still, no matter where they are on the rung or ladder of success, they still have their whiteness.”
The veteran broadcaster also said white people have a “leg up.”
Winfrey’s current net worth stands at $2.6 billion, according to Forbes, and conservative pundits were quick to weaponize that fact on Twitter following her show.

Portland Wall of Moms group accused of ‘anti-blackness’ by other advocates
The group of moms that’s acted as a buffer for protesters in Portland is being accused of “anti-blackness” by another advocacy group in the city.
Don’t Shoot PDX posted a lengthy message on Instagram urging people to stop supporting Portland Wall of Moms, the crew of mothers in yellow shirts who’ve stood between protesters and federal agents in recent weeks.
The nonprofit accuses Wall of Moms — which announced Friday that its white members were stepping down as administrators — of filing for business registrations with the state behind the backs of the newly installed black leadership.
“Black women started saying they were not protected by WOM leadership,” the group wrote. “Too frequently would be in communication for safety, transport etc and when the time came, there would be zero response and no leadership to rely on. It’s put many on the ground in direct danger.”
There’s a Divide in Even the Closest Interracial Friendships Including ours.
It was one of those perfect California nights, not too cold or too hot. Ann’s backyard was strung with lights and punctuated with the cheerful buzz of conversation as people milled around with glasses of rosé in hand. She had offered up her patio as the venue for a friend’s birthday party. And—even better—Aminatou happened to be in town. She was in Los Angeles for a work trip and had been looking forward to attending the backyard soiree because she knew and liked the birthday girl and many of the other guests.
When she showed up, the party was already in full swing. Aminatou found that the snacks were delicious and the mood lovely. But what should have been a fun night celebrating and catching up with friends turned sour when Aminatou noticed that she was the only Black person milling around Ann’s back patio.

Make America Straight Again pastor says if he dies of coronavirus from going to church it will be ‘worth it’
The homophobic pastor has been keeping his church open during the coronavirus pandemic, as Florida governor Ron DeSantis recently classified religious services as “essential business”.
In a sermon this week, he told his congregation: “Hey, we’re not spreading the virus. We’re spreading the word of God. I mean, that’s what’s gonna save souls.
“And if people are really dying out there wouldn’t they need this more? Wouldn’t they need someone who’s not fearful to wipe away the fear and walk out by faith and spread the word of God, wouldn’t they need that?”

“Space crime” allegation leads to arrest of lesbian astronaut’s ex-wife
Summer Worden outed her then-estranged wife, astronaut Anne McClain, when she accused her of illegally attempting to access her bank account from the International Space Station last year. It was dubbed the “first space crime” by the media.
But in a surprising turn of events, Worden has now been indicted and charged with making the whole thing up.
The women were involved in a bitter divorce and custody dispute when Worden made the allegation. Claiming McClain had accessed her account from a NASA computer terminal, Worden filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and NASA’s Office of Inspector General.
After an investigation, federal prosecutors allege that Worden lied about key details about when the account was opened and whether or not McClain had access to the account still.
Authorities warn that abbreviating "2020" on documents could leave you vulnerable to fraud
The new year has just begun, providing a new opportunity for scam artists to forge documents. Authorities are warning that shortening "2020" to just "20" could leave you vulnerable to fraud.
If you wrote a signed check dated "1/3/20," for example, a scammer could easily change the date to read "2019," "2000," or any other year from this century. The scammers could use this change to try and cash an old check or forge an unpaid debt.
