Oprah Winfrey Network: Remove Tyler Perry entertainment from OWN

For decades Oprah Winfrey has used her television show to educate, empower, and uplift people of all races to be better versions of themselves. OWN has committed to be an extension of this work.

Where it is clear that neither Oprah or Tyler Perry are experts on race and racism, they have also refused to utilize feedback from the conscious Black community and scholars on racism regarding the damage that Tyler Perry and his brand of entertainment perpetuate against the Black community.

Stop supporting racist stereotypes on OWN and remove Tyler Perry programming!

Letter to
Oprah Winfrey Newtwork
Remove Tyler Perry entertainment from OWN

For decades Oprah Winfrey has used her television show to educate, empower, and uplift people of all races to be better versions of themselves.

Tyler Perry is, as Toure writes, is "malt liquor" for the community! His entertainment is hurtful to the Black community. He perpetuates stereotypes and has no place on OWN.

Help uplift women of all races and the Black community . Remove his programming.
