Someone on Twitter made the mistake of questioning Oprah Winfrey’s commitment to black America, and although Oprah usually takes the high road and ignores the trash talk, she didn’t this time. Oprah took the nasty tweet as an opportunity to school black America on what she’s done for black America.
Here’s the exchange:
I don’t know who @awalkdatalk is, but whoever he is, he’s probably somewhere wishing he’d never sent that tweet. In truth, you can question a lot of things about Oprah, such as her priorities or whether OWN was a good business venture, but you can’t question her philanthropic work on behalf of black people.
The Oprah Winfrey Scholarship at Morehouse College, a historically black college, has provided a college education for hundreds of black men.
During Oprah’s farewell episode, one student said, “I was on the verge of being k****d out of school because my parents were unable to pay my tuition,” and another said, “without the Oprah Scholarship, I would have never become a physician.” And these are black men that Oprah is committing her money to.
