Oprah for 2020
Oprah For 2020
Social media sites were quick to decode Oprah's acceptance speech at the Golden Globes this month and present her as a potential candidate for the 2020 elections.
Her powerful speech which covered themes of race, gender, power and the ' Me too ' campaign against sexual harassment was quick to circulate and 'indicate' her potentially engaging in Politics.
However, the Majestic Oprah was quick to flatten such allegations. Her simple response to such rumours was " It is not in my DNA. "
But let's really dissect this story. Oprah has all the credentials necessary to become President of the United States of America. Leadership is not a position. It is a behaviour and she equates that role.
Oprah is a household name not just in the States but around the entire globe. She has amassed a great number of awards, both for her empowering television show and for her humanitarianism worldwide.
Oprah is literally a self made billionaire with her current net worth standing at 2.9 billion USD. She is the epitome of what it means ' from rags to riches' and who wouldn't want such a being as your leader.
If we are to go down memory lane, through black history , it was believed that the African American DNA was inferior and unworthy of a meaningful and successful life. However, History has changed course, powerful influencer such as Oprah and many other African American celebrities have shown anything is possible regardless of race, ethnicity or gender.
One of Oprah's famous quotes is ' When I look into the future, it's so bright it burns my eyes.' And so to my conclusion the brightness of that future could only be as bright as President of the United States of America.
