Oh Lord, a bunch of clueless c00ns as always.

Both Dash and Chong have kids that are white.
Both of Chongs kids have no trace of black in them.
Dash's daughter has no trace of black in her.

I admire Oprah for being the strong black woman that she is but I'd sure rather bed down with Rae Dawn Chong.

We think we know the person but we really don't. We shouldn't go off on each other in public. It's like taking family business outside for the enjoyment of non-family and so unbecoming.
Oh well, I guess she really hates Oprah and that's not to say Oprah didn't do something to warrant the anger but 20 years ago? Come on now.
See, that's just it...everything ain't for everybody. Whatever issue she took with Oprah I think her measures would have more effective if she had gone to Oprah in private FIRST; then if it was STILL a problem, bring in a mediator (a 3rd party). If there's STILL no resolve, put her on blast then...but you can't come out the gate going for the jugular. That type of sh!t has the tendency to backfire over 80% of the time.

Meanwhile, there's haters on the sideline laughing at both Rae and Oprah ripping each other's heads off.

Her and Irene did carry a similar vibe, didn't they?

Irene wasn't to shabby as a vocalist either.

It's not about being a "punk"; it's about tact, grace and respecting your elders whether you approve of them or not.

If you weren't such an ignoramus you'd get what I'm saying right now.

Well Oprah has her haters (most rich and famous people do) jealousy is usually the motive. However, I don't think Oprah has commented on Chong's rant. I mean why bother, Chong is irrelevant in Oprah's world, lol. I know I wouldn't comment. I'd just let the "has been" rant. Success speaks for itself, so does lack of success. Feel me?

I feel you.

I personally feel that Rae has some legitimate issues with Oprah, because I know I do and it has absolutely NOTHING to do with her "success". I'm extremely proud of her in that regard. Now why it is that Rae went the route she did to express HER discontentment with Oprah is beyond me.

Sometimes you have people who truly want to reclaim some sense of "normalcy". These women just MAY be those type of people.

I think the wise ones do. What's a piece of mind worth? Especially in todays world. Make the money, invest the money, ride out the crest of your fame and then ride off into the horizon with money in your pockets, peace in your heart, mind and spirit and live a good, quiet, gentle life, if you're wise.

The Violence and Behavior of Black Men is Destroying Black America

When one really examines what is going on in the black community, what we are suffering – the violence, drugs, sexual assaults, domestic violence, child sexual abuse, fatherless confused children, AIDS/HIV, and high rates of joblessness are all the fault of black males.

Black men are destroying black women, black children, and the black community.

In actuality, when people say “people are destroying the black community,” it’s really a polite euphemism which fails to address the true cause of what is devastating us as a race – men.

What is required to turn things around? The answer is very simple – black males need to get their shit together and stop being stupid!

Stop killing.
Stop thinking screwing as many women as possible is an achievement worthy of a medal.
Stop thinking that going to prison is a rite of passage into manhood.
Stop thinking going to school makes you corny.
Stop molesting children.
Stop screwing women without birth control then abandoning the children you create.
Stop beating on women with your words and fists.
Stop accosting young girls on the street.
Stop teaching young males violence and disrespect for others.
Stop trying to pimp and use females for your financial benefit.
Stop thinking how you are dressed projects how you are as a person – it doesn’t.
Stop wasting your money on $200 shoes and $10,000 rims when yo ass lives in the hood.

These behaviours represent a mentality that a great many young black males have, and until they change it, the black community will continue in its current downward spiral.

A second problem exists – black women that attempt to defend these men. These women claim that black men should not be blamed for the condition of the black community and that the burden is too heavy for them to bear alone so women should share in it.

Bullshit!

It may be a heavy burden, but it is the burden black men deserve to carry on their shoulders all by themselves, as every single thing mentioned there is THEIR FAULT.

Black men who behave in the manner described are making a choice to do so. No one is forcing them to rape or molest children- they choose to do that.
No one is forcing them to gun down people instead of talk that out in a civilized manner – they choose to do that.
No one is forcing them to forego use of condoms as birth control and protection from the spread of disease – they choose to do that.
No one is forcing them to abandon their children – they choose to do that.
No one is forcing them to drop out of school – they choose to do that.

And so on and so forth.

Black men are making a lot of very poor choices, and until they stop and begin to be the leaders they claim they are black men will continue to decline in wealth and social influence. Demanding that black women “follow” and “submit” to them means that black women will continue to attempt to feel tall by standing on the heads of black women. This also means that black women and children will experience the repercussions of black men’s self=destructive behaviours.

Stop demanding a woman freestyle with you then getting angry when she says no. Don’t be trying to “put it in just to see how it feels” or pulling off the condom when she isn’t looking so you can get a taste of it raw. No woman can contract an STD if the man she is sleeping with is responsible for making sure he doesn’t give her anything.

All of this starts and ends with men. Lead dammit!!! Stop whining and fucking LEAD your families and communities black men! It’s embarrassing to see thousands of men whining instead of rolling up their sleeves to make change. Whining, especially when said whining includes “but what about what WOMEN do!”.

LOL! Yeah, I know. It's a pipe dream. Some people just don't know when to hold them or fold them. If it were me, that's what I'd do. Scared money don't bet. This girl plays it close to the vest.

Smart girl.

And that's just it, some folk can't seem to distinguish when its time to let it all go. They also can't grasp, or shall I say can't accept that "stardom" is a cycle. There's a time when the artist is at his or her pinnacle, and then there's the time when he or she is at their plateau.

Yeppers! Stardom is like an addiction for some of them. They're as good as their last movie and have to constantly find ways to stay in the limelight. Stressful. It's probably why most of them turn to drugs and alcohol to cope. The people they associate with are fake and hang around to snuggle up to their stardom and see what they can get. It's almost like selling your soul to the Devil.

Nope, I'd let my star shine bright, disappear like Greta Garbo (I vanna be alone) and call it a day! lol.

I'd like to think that I'm cut from a cloth like that where I could just serve my craft according the best to my G-D given ability and fade off somewhere but more than likely I'd probably become a "mentor" to those succeeding me like Sidney Portier or someone of that caliber. I wouldn't just walk away. I COULDN'T just walk away. I like to think that I could...but probably not. Just bein' honest.

Greta Garbo, huh?

Rae is right. Behind closed doors, lighter-skinned/mixed people are more so favored by whites, even middle easterners and Asians. I should know because I've always been accepted by them. It was rare that a lighter-skinned/mixed person was a "field negro" and they USUALLY were upgraded to "house negro" status in a jiffy! Subconsciously, even though "whites" in NORTH AMERICA, see all shades of brown as black and are generally stupid at distinguishing between mixed, indian, coloured and authentic "negro", they still PREFER lighter-skinned/mixed people.
She is merely pointing out that - and she is NOT jealous of Oprah's money and wealth or even fame - that Oprah is not as nice as people think she is and she is a brownnoser and is as fake as they come. Yes, she blasted her in PUBLIC and not privately but who cares?! She blasted her and probably deserved what she got!
Oprah always interrupts the people she interviews, and changes the topic of conversation to herself, tries to force the interviewer to say what she wants, and then pretends to have gone through every experience the interviewed person went through - how can Oprah have been raped, been in prison, lost a leg, been MKUltra-mind controlled, lost three children in a car accident, all at once...she needs to stop the fake "I've been through it ALL".
Oprah also lied about growing up poor and her father confirms this.
