Bags of Joy

So, the world's richest woman (almost) didn't get the bag she wanted? Hold the front page, stop the presses. What is going on? Oprah can't walk into a store in Switzerland these days and buy a bag allegedly because SHE'S BLACK?

This most ridiculous of news stories made me almost join Twitter. My brain-washing is not yet complete it would seem. Funny how the MM are painting this as something to do with immigration and race discrimination. What a black-bag full of rubbish that is.

Perhaps the real reason is that she just wasn't recognised by the shop assistant, who would have probably sold the Diva fifty bags if she'd have known better!

With all the real 'black bag jobs' going on in the world right now, you would think that a story like this not worthy of headlines, but think again. More distraction tactics and focus on race and immigration.

Syncs featuring 'black' include Karen Black who died today. She was the Golden Globe winning Hollywood actress who starred in many films from the 70s, including Five Easy Pieces, Easy Rider, and The Great Gatsby. Black Sabbath are also in the news after it was announced they would receive the Living Legend Award at this year's Classic Rock Roll of Honour in November.

Not to Oprah's taste perhaps?
