"Now he wants the head of Oprah, queen of American television and one of America’s greatest modern humanitarians and Horatio Alger stories; yet unpopular with the hip-hop/hipster crowd because she won't take an ax to the white man once a week and give an hour-long exclusive interview to Chamillionare. As a psychological play, it’s easy to see why Ice Cube would look at Oprah and recoil with rage. Oprah was born in extreme poverty in the Deep South while Cube was born in relative academic privilege. Oprah survived a hard childhood while Cube had a peaceful two-parent home. Oprah overcame tremendous hardships to rise to tremendous heights while Cube searched for hardships and reconstructed himself as a ghetto sadist to validate his existence. Oprah is a strong successful female while Cube wrote several songs about raping strong successful females. Oprah has an audience that spans the world while Cube’s audience barely goes beyond his B-movie stardom and the frat-boys who eat up his records. Oprah is Cube’s nightmare made flesh, a walking remainder that he made his empire on flimsy excuse mongering, and a symbol that there have been people who have done much more with much less than he had and who have been much more noble while doing so.

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
