Rae Dawn Chong — N-Word Attack Was Actually a COMPLIMENT


Rae Dawn Chong says our sources caused her a world of hurt by running only a portion of her tirade against Oprah Winfrey … and her comments, including calling O a “field n**ger” were actually intended as a compliment.

RDC just released a video statement in which she does not apologize … although she says she regrets using the N-word to describe her former “Color Purple” co-star.

As you know, Rae mused that Oprah wasn”t fit to be a “house n**ger” but would be relegated to a “field n**ger” back in the day …although Ray thinks “back in the day” is 60 years ago.

$(function() $(“#poll-766-21c594dc15a754a0bfa0c528410b747b div form ul li”) .children() .not($(“div.styledRadio”)) .filter(“input:radio”) .screwDefaultButtons( checked: “url(http://ll-assets.tmz.com/www.tmz.com/default/cache/images/radio_Checked.v2013_04_30_065211.gif)”, unchecked: “url(http://ll-assets.tmz.com/www.tmz.com/default/cache/images/radio_Unchecked.v2013_04_30_065211.gif)”, width: 20, height: 20, pollid: “766-21c594dc15a754a0bfa0c528410b747b”, ); });

She also never explains how calling Oprah fat, ugly and a brown-noser is high praise.

Watch the video.
