On the Fact that Oprah Winfrey Once Claimed that She Was a Zulu

Yeah, it's bullshit. a) There isn't any documented evidence of the Zulus ever having been enslaved and b) if in fact any of the tribe had been enslaved, they would been enslaved by the Arabs as the Atlantic slave trade had functioned almost entirely out of Western Africa. I mean, I understand that Oprah's DNA (pun intended) is one of constant oppression and all (not to mention that she's never met a microphone that she doesn't like) but you gotta make it seem at least halfway plausible, I would argue.
