Should You Go to the Recession Warning on Oprah?
Oprah has been known to have a bit of an agenda when it comes to her guests. Whether it is to promote herself or to sell her products, I’m not sure, but I do know that one of the guests on her talk show that has come under fire is Jason Delaney, an African American pastor who has been criticizing Oprah in several places.
For instance, when former guest Scott Baio came out and said that Oprah was a hater and that she was anti-semitic, Ellen stated that he was talking about her previous guest, Scott Baio. Now, why would she say that? After all, who is this Scott Baio?
Well, he is a Democratic congressman from Florida, which is probably a surprise to no one who has ever heard of him. He is also married to Ellen DeGeneres’ best friend, Oprah’s sister. Now, Ellen will be part of a lawsuit soon due to her personal life and sex scandal, but before that happens, she should really get out of Florida.
Perhaps we should look at some of the other guests that have criticized her and seen if this would be an argument in favour of boycotting her show or not. If you are wondering why a “woman” would be bringing up her past while addressing a problem for women in Africa, here’s the deal. Oprah has never addressed the fact that there is little aid to help the poor in Africa.
No one has ever said that Oprah is an ally to women and that she is a role model to young girls who want to follow in her footsteps. In fact, Oprah has often used her talk show to make money while overlooking African women. It’s the perfect storm.
One of the biggest problems in Africa is that the women in Africa want to be treated like men, but not everyone knows how to deal with their husbands or how to be treated with respect. There is no such thing as a woman-in-a-man’s world, so to speak.
If you are going to boycott Oprah, then you should probably stay off her show and other media too, such as CNN. While I respect the fact that she was able to build a massive audience and did very well in that way, it is time for women in Africa to get out from under the sexist stereotypes that have been put upon them.
I hope you will please consider all this and consider whether or not you want to support Oprah by helping her to try to get her to change her views on women. Please consider all this. Sincerely, David Futrelle
