Oprah Winfrey Cooning by Dr. Boyce Watkins, author of What if George Bush were a Black Man? and recent guest on The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch agrees with the rapper Ice Cube that Oprah Winfrey often discriminates against certain genres when it comes to having black men on her show. “Her show is catered to an audience that doesn’t have much respect for black men, especially rappers like Ice Cube,” says Watkins, who openly critiques Winfrey, Bob Johnson and Bill Cosby in his book.

Dr. Watkins says that Winfrey is more likely to have a black man on her show if he is either non-threatening to her audience, or if he has done something bad toward women.
