Ted Cruz bashes Oprah for ‘lecture’ on race: ‘What utter, racist BS’

What I find interesting about this Oprah/Cruz confrontation is that it is an intra-ruling class and intra-minority dispute. An African-American billionaire and media mogul taking the cliched SJW line vs a Hispanic Senator and representative of “Conservatism, Inc.” taking the cliched right-wing line.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) lashed out at Oprah Winfrey for saying white privilege is an “advantage,” accusing the Black media mogul of spewing “utter, racist BS.”

“Billionaire Oprah lectures the rest of us: ‘You still have your whiteness. That’s what the term “white privilege” is. It means that whiteness still gives you an advantage, no matter,’” the senator wrote on Twitter in response to an article from Glenn Beck’s conservative outlet The Blaze.

“What utter, racist BS,” he added.
