You got some ‘splain’ to do ma’am…
Rae Dawn Chong Issues Apology For N-Word Tirade Against Oprah Winfrey
According to TMZ reports:
Rae Dawn Chong says TMZ caused her a world of hurt by running only a portion of her tirade against Oprah Winfrey … and her comments, including calling O a “field n**ger” were actually intended as a compliment.
RDC just released a video statement in which she does not apologize … although she says she regrets using the N-word to describe her former “Color Purple” co-star.
As you know, Rae mused that Oprah wasn’t fit to be a “house n**ger” but would be relegated to a “field n**ger” back in the day …although Ray thinks “back in the day” is 60 years ago.
Frankly the video is hard to follow, Rae never explains how she intended the N-word to serve as a compliment.
She also never explains how calling Oprah fat, ugly and a brown-noser is high praise.
You can hear/watch the complete statement in the video below.
Why not just say “I’m sorry, I was wrong” and keep it movin’? This reminds us of the bullisht “apology” that Officer Ricky Rozay offered in reference to his “U.O.E.N.O.” lyrics.
