Is Oprah a Racist?

Is Oprah a Racist? The question begs to be asked, even if no one will ask her.
Try reversing the roles.

Suppose a conservative woman has a talk show. She has interviewed Senator McCain twice, has openly and publicly campaigned for him.
His opponent selects a black male vice presidential candidate and she refuses to speak with him. Do you suppose this situation would be met with questions of racism? Of course it would.

Oprah herself says she refuses to use her show as a political vehicle and therefore declines to have any candidates on at all. I have no idea how she can maintain this fiction when she has given her couch to Obama once and the Obamas a second time.
Can Oprah's personal support be really separated from an endorsement on a show with the same name?
Given the liberal penchant for the Fairness Doctrine she owes McCain/Palin two visits.

I won't hold my breath.
