We Have a Theory About Oprah

We Have a Theory About Oprah

The wait is finally over – we’re back for Season 3! This week, we look at the movie “Proud Mary” starring Taraji P. Henson as a jumping off point for the cultural moment that black women are having right now in pop culture. We run through a brief history of black women in movies and television and consider those who built the foundation for this moment. From Hattie McDaniel to Dorothy Dandridge to Whoopi Goldberg to Halle Berry, we consider what all of this means for how we discuss Oprah’s (possible) presidential run.

Discussed This Week:

“She’s Gotta Have It” (Netflix)

“The Case for the Subway” (Jonathan Mahler, New York Times Magazine)

Black Women Voters of Alabama

“Picturing Us: African American Identity in Photography” (Deb Willis)

Diahann Carroll (in “Julia”)

Pam Grier (in “Coffy”)

Oprah’s SNL Cold Open

“The Spector of Oprah Winfrey: Critical Black Female Spectorship“ (Terisha L. Stanley, 2007)

Have you ever wondered if a lot of relationships fail, because we all probably have a different definition of Love? Have you ever actually asked your partner what Love means to them, or do you just assume that the both of you are operating under the same definition?

Does The G.O.A.T Tag Help or Hinder An Artist? EMA 152

Does The G.O.A.T Tag Help or Hinder An Artist? EMA 152

There was a dope ass video from MURS (for HipHopDX) where he talked about the price of having the GOAT tag. He asked is it more of a burden or a blessing. In fact, what specifically prompted him to talk about this, was all the criticism Eminem has been receiving for his latest album, Revival.

Big Therm and Rozay (J-Boss couldn’t join us) talked about it by asking three questions.
1 – Once you reach a certain level in the game where few have been, are there no more accolades to be had? Murs thinks so. He also says it leaves the door wide open for hate.

2 – Murs said “why wouldn’t Em get the top tier talent? Because he’s “Emin fuckin em” . He’s not trying to cross over and not trying to sell units, why wouldn’t he have that “same level of talent” on the album”? We asked, what is this “same level of talent” he speaks of?

3 – MURS says we must allow the greats to trust the process that got them there. We asked….”is he right”?

Tune in for this and of course the GAF (Give a F!ck) and YOTW (Yams of the Week) and all the other fuckery going on.
