This has been an absolutely crazy and insane year. I understand that every year has its challenges and hurdles but 2020 has seemed particularly absurd. We’ve been and are still dealing with a worldwide pandemic, there’s been nationwide protests and there is a presidential election in a couple months (If it’s not delayed, right Mr. President?). Oh and there were or still are something called “murder hornets.”
But if all of that wasn’t crazy enough for ya, a billionaire is now pushing a book about America’s inequality and all of the rampant social injustice that occurs in the country.
Yes, Oprah Winfrey, believes Isabel Wilkerson’s book “Caste” should be required reading for humanity because it highlights “America’s unspoken caste system.”
Listen, Wilkerson may have written an outstanding book that shines a light on things that you and I have never thought of or considered before, that may be. I don’t know, I haven’t read it and as the old saying goes, I’m not going to judge a book by its cover.
However, Winfrey telling people about the terribleness that exists and that is the United States of America is just downright laughable. She’s the absolute wrong person to be pitching a book on such a subject.
Yes, Winfrey has experienced hardship and tragedy in her life but despite everything she was able to overcome it and became an author, TV host, actress and billionaire.
