SORT BY Relevancy
Forest Whitaker is synonymous with versatility. For more than three decades, the 6’2”, 250-pound actor has been playing characters that ranged from jocks to jazz icons, cops to psychopathic bandits. But in each case, he’s brought a mix of strength and delicacy to the role that would be nearly impossible to come by in any other performer. Oh, and add appreciative of his colleague’s support to that list. “She invited me to dinner when I was doing The Last King of Scotland,” he tells us of Oprah Winfrey, his co-star in Lee Daniel’s The Butler. “I got to know her from there slowly. But working with her on the film, she was so committed. She helped bring our relationship closer together because she’d be right by my side. She’d be holding my hand and rub my back when I was getting ready in the trailer. She said she trusted me as an artist. And the work she was doing was so strong.”
There are not many things that make Oprah Winfrey cry. She's one of the most influential woman in the world, but one scene in her movie The Butler brought her to tears. "I've never seen two black people on a screen being tender with a sense of intimacy," she tells Keeping it Reel on BlogTalkRadio.

Oprah Winfrey -- this ignorant woman is so disgusting in her rhetoric, she leaves me no choice but to comment publicly... Emmitt Till was ABDUCTED, tortured, disfigured, then shot POINT BLANK in the head before being tied to a cotton gin and DUMPED IN A RIVER... For freaking OPRAH WINFREY to compare TRAYVON MARTIN - who ATTACKED Zimmerman and POUNDED HIS HEAD INTO THE GROUND!! - to EMMITT TILL is - NO kidding!! - one of the MOST DISGUSTING THINGS I'VE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE... This woman is every BIT the racist meat-bag Al Sharpton is... It makes me sick to even LOOK at her... EMMITT-FREAKING TILL??? -- She SPITS ON HIS GRAVE!!! http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2013/08/05/oprah-trayvon-same-emmitt-till
In these difficult days and times we often look to spiritual leaders for guidance and instruction in our lives. As Christians (followers of Christ) should these leaders speak from their mind, or from what is written based on the word of God? This show will examine things said by men and woman claiming to be Gods ministers to reveal whether or not they are speaking Gods word and doing his will. 1Pet 4: 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through JesusChrist, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.We hope you tune in and listen to our show. We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am all eastern time.

In case you didn't know, Oprah Winfrey is NOT the Messiah!
But somebody needs to tell her that as soon as possible!
Now that statement was sprinkled with a bit of sarcasm so please don't think that I despise Ms. Winfrey, that's not the case at all.
My dislike is toward her actions - or rather lack of them - is when it comes to addressing the issues in the Black community she treats them like they don't exist until she has a movie coming out.
It's almost as though she sees the pain and suffering that Black people must endure on a daily basis as merely a way to get the money pot stirred so that she can reap the benefits with the high box office numbers that happen whenever we as Black people see someone that looks like us on the screen to bring in the big bucks.
I mean DAMN OPRAH! Are Black people simply trained monkeys to you that are to jump through your cinematic hoops every time you have a flick to hustle to the masses?
.......do you feel as though we should feel that your movies are some kind of reward like a puppy feels when he gets a doggie snack?
We jump for you all of the time Oprah, but in recent memory - and NOT so recent memory - you don't seem to care for us enough to give us the support when the people who look like YOU - male AND female - are shot down in cold blood with no hesitation or remorse whatsoever!
How does it feel to look down on the poor city of us common working stiffs knowing that you for the most part have been given a pass to what most of us will have to endure for the rest of our lives in this country called Amerikkka?
How does it feel to look in the mirror to know that you will always be Amerikkka's favorite Mammy and be paid well to continue a well known tradition that has been going on here for hundreds of years?
How does it feel?
