False claims of racism has greatly hurt race relations. Today it is the fuel of race wars.

There’s even more data pouring in here on the controversy in Switzerland involving The Oprah. The Oprah’s version, as told to that great journalistic enterprise Entertainment Tonight, The Oprah’s version was that she asked to see an expensive bag on the top shelf and that the shop person said that it was too expensive. So The Oprah said she tried one more time, “I really just want to see that one.” And the shop owner or the clerk said, “No, I don’t want to hurt your feelings, but you can’t afford it.” And The Oprah said, “Okay, well, you’re probably right, I can’t afford it.” And then left and called Entertainment Tonight.
Now the shop owner, Trudie Gotz, great Swedish name, told the BBC that The Oprah’s version here is not exactly what happened. The shop owner told the BBC that The Oprah was absolutely allowed to look at the $35,000 bag. They kept the bag behind a screen and then the shop owner Trudie Gotz said, “My salesperson wanted to give her the handbag in her hand. But she didn’t want to take the bag.” Now, didn’t want to take it may mean didn’t want to buy it. Who knows. I mean, it’s translation time here. So the shop owner further stated that the assistant, the clerk that had dealt with The Oprah had worked in that store “for a few years and takes care of the most spoiled customers from all over the world.” She knows how to deal with them. (laughing) She really said this, folks. She really said that we’ve got an expert dealing with the spoiled in there. “She’s really correct.” She knows how to deal with them.
The BBC may be racist because they’re presenting a version here that doesn’t dovetail with The Oprah’s version. BBC said: “Ms Gotz said her assistant spoke both Italian and English, ‘but her English isn’t as good. She tried to show Mrs Oprah the same style in other qualities, because maybe she didn’t understand what she wanted.'” So there’s a lot of backtracking here and CYA going on. These are Europeans. They’re not accused of racism. There isn’t any racism in Europe and there’s no class envy. There isn’t any class warfare. There isn’t any global warming. What else is there? There isn’t any poverty. I mean, it’s utopia over there. That’s why everybody’s so shocked. I mean, you would expect something like this to happen, say, in Alabama, but not Switzerland. I’m not insulting Alabama. I’m voicing the arrogance of the left.
