Oprah recently opened a $40 million dollar school in South Africa and explained to Newsweek how she had become frustrated with trying to help American kids. From TMZ:
“I became so frustrated with visiting inner-city schools [in the U.S.],” she tells Newsweek. “If you ask the kids what they want or need, they will say an iPod or some sneakers. In South Africa, they don’t ask for money or toys. They ask for uniforms so they can go to school.”
I guess our kids can always go on “Flavor of Love,” if they’re really hard up.
