There are so many blacks who paved the way for Barack Obama’s victory last night. Condoleezza Rice & Colin Powell are two recent examples of African -Americans who made tremendous gains in their political careers. They helped prepare America for a black president.The very American Oprah Winfrey really helped influence the way whites view blacks. She is the first black female billionaire that we know of! I really don’t know of any 80’s talk show that’s still around except for “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” This is one female who is one of the most powerful & respected women in the world. People listen intently to Oprah because of her astounding success & wisdom.
Her endorsement of Barack Obama really helped propel him out of the political stratosphere. He is a celebrity around the world because he is the antithesis of George Bush. He is charismatic, extremely intelligent, unbelievably handsome, serene, & he is biracial. Barack Obama really does represent America. And Oprah had a big hand in getting a lot of Americans to realize that. She helped pave the way for America to gain the president that it deserves. Her words carry a lot of weight in the world. Thank you, Oprah Winfrey for helping Barack Obama win.
