In an interview with the BBC this week to promote her film “The Butler,” BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz asked the former talk-show queen if it has ever crossed her mind “that some of the treatment of Obama, and the challenges he’s faced, and some of the reporting he’s received, is because he’s an African-American?”/Judy Kurtz, The Hill.

Question: Do you agree with Oprah Winfrey -- that some of the animosity toward President Obama is racial?
