What May

Was watching Oprah yesterday (and almost everyday) and noticed that most of her audiences are white. This is not new, it's been mentioned before, but isn't it a tad bit funny for her championing the rights of the black people but finds herself sidelined by the very same people. Or maybe its just a very small percentage of them. Mistake me not, she does do excellent things, exposing the bare ugly evil of the American society and her works in Africa is noble as well. But in the end, what or who does she serve?

Or maybe it's just another Air Jordan effect. If it is, then the purpose is lost, Oprah.

I think it is the black audience who first made her into such a big talk show.I have been watching her show since it first began in 1985.Even though she does a lot of work in Africa she does a lot for white people also. Many of her close friends are white.

Ghosty, should the color of her audience suggest who/what she serves?

Besides she doesn choose her audience...does she!

Keshi.
You got a point there.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
