Either you like Oprah or you don't. You know she cares for all people and she'll do what she can NOW to make up for any misunderstandings. Lets see what happens. I think some folks shouldn't take things so personal. Chill out.

It is all so crystal clear. Ice Cube and 50 Cent have chosen to personify violence. It has made them wealthy and famous. Violence, fear and hatred is exactly what Oprah's show is an antidote for. At least these rappers should have the intelligence to understand and the decency to respect that there are programs that just want to comfort people and give warmth. That is basically the essence of what Oprah does. Respect people's need for peace and kindness.

These rappers are dissing Oprah because they can't come on her show and act "ghetto" and promote their albums. As a black person I always say that if Oprah had totally catered to the black community and had all black staff, She would NOT be the Oprah she is today. When you look at the lyrics of these cats (50, Ice cube, Ludacris). They mostly promote violence, drugs and gangs, exploitation of women etc. Why in the name of God, would Oprah promote something like that. Oprah is mostly about education and the empowerment of people. "Not about having 10 kids with 10 different women".

Oprah is the person that most Africa Americans should want to become.
Most of us don't look at what God say about helping one another. Oprah has a strong belief in God,who allows her to advance to greater heights.
She gives to poor and her main goals in life is to help sombody.When we speak of anyone black or white ,or whatever race they are,ask yourself are they working for the good of mankind.It seems to me that most of these rappers are all about self. There is no evidence that they are helping anyone,building schools, giving to the poor, helping abused women and children,getting child molesters off the street.The are signs at all. I think that these rappers need to clean up there rap music,and STOP,STOP,STOP BLASTING OPRAH.

The last five posters hit the nail on the head. These rappers have no place on any show, least of all Oprahs'. They need to clean up their acts and stop glorifying all that is violent. Start showing a positive image to our youths who look up to them. Oprah has no need to lower herself to their levels. Idiots...all of them. Some people will do anything to make a buck..

This is a bit off topic but I dislike Oprah with a passion, and this is why:
She promotes pharmaceutical drugs like crazy. I recently purchased the book "selling sickness" which "looks at how pharmaceutical companies are creating and selling illness." On the back of this book O, The Oprah Magazine said it is " Provocative... compelling" She endorses and represents this all the while if you take a look at any one of her magazines, she is making money off this industry by averaging about 15+ ads by pharmaceutical companies. I figured this out on my own. and if anyone wants to argue this, take a look a the evidence for yourself before you speak.
I swear she thinks she is omniscient.

But she likes Jay-Z, known for rapping and promoting his drug dealing days. Go figure!
