Oprah's got a new project that addresses racial disparities in healthcare and COVID ... something she believes definitely isn't over, and which has been somewhat forgotten.
The media mogul spoke with LA Times to plug her new documentary, "The Color of Care," which is debuting this weekend on the Smithsonian Channel ... and she opened up A LOT about racism, healthcare, celebrity privilege, mask mandates and what one might characterize as COVID amnesia ... especially relating to those who've died in the pandemic.

First off, she discussed putting a spotlight on what POC, particularly those living in relative poverty, have had to deal with navigating the healthcare system these past 2 years ... and how she believes race has had much to do with them getting the cold shoulder.
Then, Oprah got personal with her own history ... acknowledging that she's been afforded an enormous amount of access and priority as a well-known person throughout her life.
