WATCH: Oprah says Donald Sterling’s Comments Are Indicative of a ‘Plantation Mentality’
Oprah Winfrey joined the chorus of critics that have bashed Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for his comments on race, saying they were indicative of a “plantation mentality.”
When asked on CBS “This Morning” on Tuesday whether she had been following the story, Winfrey said: “Of course I’ve been following this story. It feels like a plantation mentality in the 21st century, in 2014, it just doesn’t fit. And, I’m waiting to see what they’re going to do, because something has to be done.” She reiterated her belief that action needs to happen “now.”
The NBA has yet to announce any specific actions it might take against Sterling. The league will hold a press conference later Tuesday.
