During a radio interview, actress Rae Dawn Chong said of Oprah Winfrey: "Sixty
years ago she would have been a housekeeper, luckily. She would have been a field [N-word]."
While she did concede that Oprah's achievements are "amazing," she added
that Oprah is a "great brown-noser".
"If you were in a room with her, she will pick the most powerful person and become
best friends with them."
And: "She was that fat chick in school that did everything and everybody loved
her. That's Oprah. Love me, love me, love me."
Within hours of the audio hitting the web, Chong backtracked saying the comments were.... "Out of context, it's a most unfortunate choice of words and I regret it. Do I take
back everything I said? No."
