50 Cent said that Oprah has turned into a real 'oreo' meaning she’s black on the outside and white on the inside. He said that Oprah “started out with black women’s views but has been catering to middle-aged white American women for so long that she’s become one herself. I think the idea of being publicly noted that she’s a billionaire makes [black women] interested in seeing her views. But it’s even more exciting to the demographic of white American women she’s been aiming at to see that she has the exact same views that they have.”

black and white people arnt allowed the same views r they now
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 12/6/06 - 1:14:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
So ermmm... being black or white affects your views and /or your personality?
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 12/6/06 - 1:14:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, what's up with the idea that black and white women can't have the same views? And I don't think 50 Cent represents black womens' views particularly well, so he should maybe shut up about this.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/22/06 - 1:49:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
i don't get how you can have "black views" or "white views". it all bases on stereotypes, it's disgusting.

Who gives a damn. We're all gonna die anyway...and before that, can't we all just be friends?
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/22/06 - 3:13:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe, I don't know too much about her, except for the fact she has tons of cash.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/22/06 - 3:14:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, and since when is anything 50 cent says, taken seriously?

He's talking about women's rights, when all his music is about them having sex with him...

Not at all. There are ocassional pieces about drive-by shootings
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 12/23/06 - 9:45:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. "Fiddy" cent is an idiot.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 12/23/06 - 11:39:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
50 Cent is such a tool. I think we're giving him too much credit by even taking this comment seriously.

Thats just generalzing people. White people have this view black people have that view. And eve if it was true it is stupid to call it "white views" or "black views".

15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 1/1/07 - 1:23:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
oprah is a racist bitch, all she ever does is talk about blacks and the only charities shes famous for donating millions to are 90% for black kids

That's what I was wondering about!
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 1/1/07 - 1:27:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
50 cents either needs to elaborate on what he's saying.... or he's a f*cktard. (My guess would be the latter)
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 10:10:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
He's just pissed off that she doesn't go around shooting people (to my knowledge)
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 1:08:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
No ,I don't agree with it
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 1:10:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
50 Cent is confusing colour with culture.
Oprah didn't come from the ghetto, being shot repeatedly, so she's hardly likely to have the same views as a lot of the black women 50 Cent knows.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 1:39:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
not at all, her views do not make her black or white

Oprah didn't exactly grow up in upper middle class suburbia either...

I think it's really messed up to equate certain things with race, like how a person talks or how much money they have.
I'd want to hear more about how he thinks she should be believing before I came down too hard on him, though. It strikes me as an ignorant viewpoint, but then it would be ignorant of me to pretend I know everything there is to know about race relations.

Yes, but that's obviously the demographic she feels comfortable appealing to. I think 50 Cent is assuming that everyone would want to appeal to people from their roots, like he seems to.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 3:12:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Because entertainment is based on race?
Who cares? If you do chances are you're racist.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 3:18:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
fifty makes music catering to upper-middle class white kids. he's in no position to be aiming the oreo gun.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 3:23:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oprah has a billion reasons to talk about whatever the f*ck she wants.
