WELP! Check out this flyness. Oprah has used Hip-Hop in a great many ways this year. She has talked to everybody from Jay-Z to 50 Cent and made a spectacle of DMX with his “Fix My Life” mess. But she refuses to be friends with anybody that uses the N-Word. Mind you, this means she cannot be friends with just about anybody, not just rappers. She couldn’t even be friends with Martin Luther King, Jr. Or any KKK member. Or Rae Dawn Chong. Or Denzel Washington.
Anyway, yeah…here is what she said.
“You cannot be my friend and use that word around me. It shows my age, but I feel strongly about it. … I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.”
I feel her on that.
