Dearest OPRAH,you have been a shining light to my family and my community. Contributing so much to my life that I couldn’t list a fraction of it in this blog.Ihave given you the gift of meditation and the groundbreaking book”THE POWER OF NOW “we bonded to say the least. This is why it’s so troubling that you choose me to single out in your recent documentry. I have already admitted to being a playboy more (appropriately titled today “womanizer”) sleeping with and putting myself in more compromising situations than almost any man I know. Not 8 or 14 thousand like Warren Beatty or Wilt Chamberlain, but still an embarrassing number. So many that some could reinterpret or reimagine a different recollection of the same experiences. Please note that ur producers said that this upcoming doc was to focus ONLY on 3 hand chosen women. I have refused to get in the mud with any accusers, but let’s acknowledge what i have shared. I have taken and passed nine 3-hour lie detector tests (taken for my daughters), that these stories have been passed on by CNN, NBC, BUZZFEED, NY POST, NY MAG, AND OTHERS. Now that you have reviewed the facts and you SHOULD have learned what I know; that these stories are UNUSABLE and that “hurt people hurt people”. Today I received a call from an old girlfriend from the early 1980s which means that they are using my words/evidence against me and their COMMITMENT / (all of the claims are 25 to 40 years old) It is impossible to prove what happened 40 years ago, but in my case proof exists of what didn’t happen, mostly signed letters from their own parents, siblings, roommates, band members, interns, and in the case of 2 of your 3 accusers, their own words in their books. Shocking how many people have misused this important powerful revolution for relevance and money. Maybe you should name your documentary “FLAVOR OF LOVE”!? In closing, I am guilty of exploiting, supporting, and making the soundtrack for a grossly unequal society, but i have never been violent or forced myself on anyone. Still I am here to help support a necessary shift in power and consciousness. Let us get to work on uplifting humanity and put this moment and old narrative behind

Oprah's hands are tied. She is being controlled by the dark forces. They possess photos of her with underage girls and she wants to keep that stuff under the table.

i wonder how people will take this. because i remember reading a lot of people (on this site among others) who talked negatively about russ. but, it seems that a lot of people really dislike oprah. i can't wait to see what side people choose in this little battle.

as for me. i hate that oprah is once again positioning herself against another black man. i really think if she wants to go on this crusade to out rapists, then she needs to not limit herself to just black men. she needs to be inclusive of them all.

1:32 EXACTLY!! Oprah needs to call out all the others

Maybe Oprah feels more of an onus towards the black women (and CHILDREN) that ended up being victims of these perverts. I don't see why she's expected to fight everyone's battles or to go after every perpetrator.
She doesn't have to.

Whoever is pulling Oprah's strings (someone is pulling them), little does she know they will be coming for her one day too. I don't understand why she would want to get involved in some bullshit like this.

Yes, her motives are hella suspect for pursuing Dusty Russy but let's not forget Oprah has ALWAYS catered to a WHITE audience. Hell, she even dated Robert Ebert and it's through dating him that she decided to syndicate her talk show, which is really what catapulted her into the mega billionaire she is today. I'm sure Weinstein was very instrumental in her forwarding her career and connections as well, which is why she's never publicly spoken ill of him (that I know of).

The bottom line is Oprah has an allegiance and debt to White men and White people in the industry in general. I've never known her to be for or about Black people from a loyalty standpoint so why start now? She'll go after all the Black men she wants because they've never done anything for her opportunistic ass.

Anonymous and Gg57 you both are absolutely correct!

Russell is definitely a creep. Nevertheless, seriously Oprah better watch her step and slow her role. If we don't hear about her now in this lifetime, when they put her ass in the grown all kinds of stuff is going to come out. But, I want to come out while she's still alive in this realm. It's like she's the "Expose Queen" now... I don't like her.

***when they put her ass in the ground all....

Oprah is affiliated with the exploitation of young girls and boys so lets give her enough rope to hang herself.

No matter how much Power and Money Oprah has she will always be insecure, bitter, broken, lost and confused. She doesn't have love for herself let alone others.

Oprah's days are numbered. Soon she will be of no use and she will be discarded.

I predict that this documentary will flop just like the Neverland debacle. Let them fight it out amongst themselves and in court. Stay out of this Oprah, you have much bigger things to accomplish.. Said with LOVE.

Unlike Issa Rae, I am not rooting for everybody black. Whenever the cleanup crew comes to takeout the trash in the black community, black people say “but white people have trash too.” The black collective can’t ever focus on cleaning up their own backyard. We want all of the social privileges but want no accountabilty for our social ills and dysfunctions.

I prioritize the safety and well being of black girls. By proximity, black men are their greatest predators, not white men. Little black girls are raped, molested, and abused by thier fathers, uncles, brother, and their mama's boyfriend. By all means Oprah, take out the trash. Charity starts at home.

^^^^^ Exactly @ 7:01. Black people get on my fuckin nerves with that bullshit and like you said it’s Black men AND Black women hurting these black children. These perverted ass niggas sexing on young girls and touching on young boys is at a all time high. All these missing Black women and young girls are kidnapped and murdered by their own fuckin people.

50 cents can shut the entire fuck up, I'm so tired of these black devils and their lack of accountability, always chat bout da white man, nigga clean up your filth. 50's ass disrespect black women and children on a daily, he's an abusive asshole to his own flesh and blood. As for Oprah doing documentary on everyone else, I'm still waiting on the one on the high profile women in the entertainment and politics that are also pedophile who traffic and rape young girls, but I guess that won't ever come anytime soon, as it will implicate so many who people would never suspect that even the most jaded among us, will clutch our muthafukken pearls.

Facts. Like how they covered up back in the day when she was getting ready to blow up, how the caught Stedman in bed with her hair dresser and stabbed his ass. "Allegedly of course" I want the female pedophiles exposed!! those hoes have been flying under the radar too damn long.

Oprah will f*#ck her daddy (yes, the dead one) before she utters one word about Harvey Weinstein.

Lacy said...

@Gg57 I do believe someone definately has something on her. At this point she'll do any damn thing they tell her to do. She has to. This woman was on yachts with some of the richest men in the world, who are accused of being rapist and pedophiles. What was Oprah doing while these men was being perverted. Do you really think she just went to bed and no young thing was in her bed? Not really sure, but something don't add up.

Oprah been running a underage hoe house over there in Africa. And all these white men she's protecting have been her best clients.
