I admire Oprah keeping her poise in the face of so many haters. I cannot stand Oprah haters. The basic reason is they hate her over untruths. If you hate celebrities and their self absorbed lives, I can get that.Usually, though, when I have had a conversation with people that hate Oprah, their reasons are, she hates black men, hates men in general or some variation of that claim.

I’m not an unreasonable person, I absolutely reconsider my ideas when confronted with proof. In Oprah’s case, I looked from some proof. I used to watch her show when I was younger, I recall no man hating from Oprah. I went through all the online videos of her show I could find and found nothing to cause concern. So she funded a leadership school for girls.

She has also helped fund many other schools that were not just for girls. I suspect the real issue is not something she has specifically said or done but a woman that seems to have a fulfilling life without the bulk of that fulfillment being totally focused on the man in her life. There are times it hurts me to think that if a black woman cured cancer she would be hated by black men if she dared be successful of her own accord.

Why can’t a sister get the least credit for something other than what she may do for a man or children? A woman’s success outside of that does not equal a man’s failure at anything. There is nothing wrong with any woman if she has extra aspirations other than the traditional gender role box they are trying to stuff us in.

Opah making a hater look stupid—-APPLE OF MY EYE ALL DAY! The hater, of course, gets the stink eye.
