Oprah Winfrey 'was victim of racism' in Switzerland

Billionaire US talk show host Oprah Winfrey said she was a victim of racism during a recent visit to Switzerland. Oprah visited Zurich last month to attend Tina Turner's wedding and while there she visited an up market handbag shop but a shop assistant refused to serve her, saying the bags on display were "too expensive" for her. The bag on display was a $35,000 bag. Too expensive for one of the richest women in the world? Well, The Oprah Winfrey Show is not shown in Switzerland so they don't know her there...but even at that no black person can afford a $35, 000 bag?

Oprah said she left the shop calmly without arguing, but that the experience was proof that racism continues to be a problem. "There's two different ways to handle it. I could've had the whole blow-up thing... but it still exists, of course it does."she said

Why is victim of racism in quotes like it's in doubt? Oprah's telling the truth. Shame on the racists.

Racism also exist in the UK. My friends and I were coming from church one evening. As we approached the busstop and was about to sit down, one white guy just stood up from where he was sitting and started mummering while walking away. I thot he was walking to catch the bus but when I looked at the road, there was no bus. He just stood by the road. I was so shocked! My friends were so upset. One of them went to sit at the same space he vacated. Talk about racism. As if we were going to steal from the miserly thing. Mtchew.

I share Oprah's sentiments. Like I was in Selfridges once to get a Vivienne Westwood bag and the attendant was extremely reluctant to attend to me. And near saucy too. She wouldn't even let me touch the bag to have a look at it. Like I was gonna stain the bag with my complexion.

Very sill empty racist people.

It has happened to me before.....
I went into a boutique to buy a shoe and the shop assistant dint even get up instead d madam looked at me with an arrogant face and said "its expensive".
So if Oprah had gone there too(assuming they also dint know Oprah and she walked in jeans and shirt)it would have happened to her.
Would it be racism too?

I am not suprise, I flew into Zurich from London on my way Rome on Swiss.

While going through to connect my flight to Rome, the security men and women were f..king racist. All the stuff I was allowed to take on board were taken from me.

I said to them, I was allowed to fly with them, but they were speaking in German and laughing right to my face.

They allowed the same thing thru for other oyinbo behind me.

Anyway, their fucking country is dry and boring...

Oprah & Tina again? The last incident of store racism she said she was going to get a watch for tina turner and was turned away lol
This is the 3rd incident Oprah has discussed where she was refused service in an upscale store. The first happened perhaps 20 years in Chicago. Oprah was refused entrance to a store and when she called the manager to discuss the incident they explained that they had recently had a problem with drag queens in the store. The 2nd incident happened around 5 years ago in Paris. Oprah was with Gayle and was again refused entrance to a store (I believe it was Gucci). The store later explained that it was closed for a private event, but I believe Oprah opined that the store would have been open for Barbra Streisand or Britney Spears.

Oprah should have gotten her own personal assistant to go out and get her 200G's in cash swiss money and buy up some shit. While the cashier is bringing up the goodies, smile and have a good conversation with the racist asshole who thought she couldn't afford the goods and keep leading her on. Then let the cashier count the CASH money and as soon as she get's ready to deposit the money, tell her you want the money back and leave the store.

Let me see on Facebook one silly 12 year old with an iPad and on Facebook say "i don't see color"

let me hear that useless saying "but I'm not like the others"

If you are a black person and you think racism is dead then you have missed road. Don't let anyone deceive you, white people created racism and race and they are the only ones benefiting from it. They don't like you and never will because you are not one of them and they have been looking down on us from the beginning of time till now.

Be smart in this world,be very smart. We are the only ones that will save ourselves from the white man.

Of course Racism continues to exist.Its glaring and I am glad Oprah is bringing further attention to it.Its there when you walk into high street shop and the security guard (who most of the times is a blackman) literally follows you physically or with his eyes round the shop, thinking you left your well paid job and status to come into the shop to steal.

It might not be racism. It could be a matter of class and not looking the part. I don't know about Switzerland but in the UK if you are white and from the downstairs type (Downton Abbey)you might be told the same thing and directed to the high street shop for your accessories. I bet if Oprah goes back and pack a Bentley or Aston Martin in front of the shop and decked up with diamond jewelry and rings, the assistant will be groveling and will even be soliciting for a tip. Europe generally is a class society and if you don't look it you will not get a table in most posh restaurant not to talk of buying a $35000 handbag.

Good thing about Germans (Zurich is essentially German section of Switzerland) is that they don't hide the fact that they are racist. "To be forewarned..." as they say. At least, no back-stabbing there, unlike some peeps who'd smile in your face, and as soon as, plot against you thereafter.

It's unusual for Oprah to be gob-smacked though. I am usually gob-smacked myself when I have, running through my head, 1001 come-backs for this ignoramus. But because one retort sounds much more of an understatement than the other, I usually walk away feeling like a mug, and unfulfilled by the fact that I did not teach the idiot a much needed lesson. That assistant will forever continue to upset potential customers, and turn civilization back a thousand years by her bigoted actions and utterances.

I once had the bravado to yell at a German Immigration officer on my way OUT of Koln airport. He was literally using a blade to try to lift the photo in my (old-style) EU passport (apparently trying to see if it was fake). I told him if he didn't quit tampering with my official document, he would creating a diplomatic incident against the British government who had issued the passport. I rebuked him for obviously not knowing his job, demanded he hand back the passport and to call his superior immediately, otherwise the queue behind me would not move anywhere. He saw I meant what I said, and did exactly as I demanded. I reported him calmly to his manager, who apologized, and relieved the officer of his duties with immediate effect.

Let's not forget we are all human beings, created equal in all ways - rich or poor - and no one has the right to intimidate us with any law, creed or discrimination. Nevertheless, it does help to read up on the laws and culture of the land before visiting.

The quotes must be for emphasis. @topic, racism was invented by the white man in their ploy to steal, kill and dominate black people. It has taken nearly 500 years to be established in the mainstream consciousness and we shouldn't dream that it will disappear in 2 days. Also do we really believe that the same people that created racism and are the sole benefactors will be the same people to stop it? Racism can only be stopped if we blacks make it happen but sadly the black nationd lack leaders with vision and dedication to lead the movement againt the western propagators of racism

Buffoons all us.while the whites and Asians are busy moving towards space Conquest, we busy displaying a few kilometres of road and miserable house construction as achievement. When will these people gather themselves together to carve a path for this nation of all strong and big for nothing black fools. Thanks Oprah for making a difference, takes some strength. Sorry for the deviation, all join. Black people should just accept their damned fate, period.

Loved the way she handled this and some of these celebrities should take note. Less mature ones would have tried flaunting their money by buying lots of items which would have defeated the purpose as this would have meant huge commission for her and money for the shop with nothing resolved. Instead, everyone around the world now knows about the store, it's policies and negative image of Switzerland.

I personally don't consider this racism. Oprah actually dresses down a lot and she can look unkempt. I guess if a wretched white woman walked into the store she would get the same treatment. If you're going into a store selling such bags dress the part. That being said the attendant is super stupid. It would've been better if she presented the bags and sarcastically mentioned the price.

What to tell you all very true story about me, I was born in the UK, London, England, my parents came from India originally to the UK in the early 60's and they faced racism in their every day lives, they reminded me when they were alive that the British used to put up signs when renting out property No Blacks, Asians or Irish allowed! This is how it used to be, many years later I married a Swiss woman and we lived for sometime in the UK and also Switzerland in the early 90's, but when I moved to Switzerland I felt the same level as racism pointed towards me not just in the work place but also in general life, I remember in 1992 going to a car garage, to look for a new car and being told the I was not allowed to sit in the new car because person serving, thought I could not afford it, the look on my wife's face was of shock and embarrassment, she was ashamed that her own people would treat foreigners this way, even at work I found people would treat me like a second class citizen when I got my Swiss passport, I would like to say where such poor and narrow minded evil like this exists there are people who will stand up against this kind of intolerance thank you Operah I am glad you stood up to this like I did, I am no longer living in Switzerland but in Ireland now, where people are kind and friendly, I will never want to go back to Switzerland and live there again and I hope rich honest rich people no longer put their money into Swiss Banks because this is what creates this sort of selfishness in Switzerland and racsm

OMG! Oprah is the racist here! Everyone in Switzerland has Oprah pegged as the beotch she truly is.

No one in Switzerland gives a crap how rich she is, there are many rich and celebrities in Switzerland.

Everyone knows she only did this as a publicity stunt ... every time she has the opportunity to place the race card, she does ... so much like the Obamanation.

If you only knew the truth about what happened, you would understand how big a liar she is.

Personally, I think she was pissed because her ego was decimated when the saleswomen didn't recognize her. Right on Swiss! Oprah has the right not to visit their country ... and trust me, the Swiss are fine with that!
