>"It's been almost a year since we published the [1619 Project], the most important work of my life, and I am so excited to announce that we will be partnering with [Lionsgate] and the one and only [Oprah Winfrey] to bring this work on slavery's legacy to tv and film!" Hannah-Jones tweeted.>Amid the riots, vandals toppled a statue of George Washington in Portland, spray-painting "1619" on the statue. When Claremont's Charles Kesler wrote in The New York Post, "Call them the 1619 riots," Hannah-Jones, responded (in a since-deleted tweet) that "it would be an honor" to claim responsibility for the destructive riots and the defamation of American Founding Fathers like George Washington.

I crack my whip and my slave, Oprah Winfrey, immediately stands to attention, having been instilled with the fear of Me, her White Master. "Y-yes Massa?" she stutters, searching with imploring eyes, as if to ask, "Please don't whip me again, Massa". This, as I look down on her with a cold indifference which transitions into baneful disgust at her arrogant presumption that she deserves any sympathy or empathy from Me, her Master. Enraged, I whip Oprah. As she screams I gnash my teeth, smiling with carnal delight at her searing pain. What exquisite agony! "NIGGER BITCH!", I shout as the tip of my whip slices her back open, crimson nigger blood spurting off her like a fountain, the whip tasting the red plasma like a tongue. The whip is an extension of Me. I feed off Oprah Winfrey's bloody agony. It gives me Life. It sustains Me. I AM THE WHITE MASTER!!! YOU ARE THE NIGGER SLAVE!!! OPRAH WINFREY, THE NIGGER SLAVE!!! WHIP! WHIP!! WHIP!!! NIGGER BITCH! BITCH!! BITCH!!! YES! YES!! YES!!!
