I just watched part 2 of her show and you’re right; the class-ism surrounding this event is beginning to stink. First the Rutgers women's status as students seems to have been the only thing that shielded them from being called ho's. Then Snoop Dogg said as much. And now Oprah's done a show that was truly disturbing. It was centered on folks from the upper classes, just as you said, and there were no men and women young and old from the hood and "lower classes". Hmmm. I hate to say it but the classism is getting hard to overlook.
