    I admire the fact that Oprah Winfry is an educated black woman that promotes education. White people love her as well as blacks and many other races. As a young African American woman in college she is what I strive to be like.

    Oprah makes $712,000 a day?!!!!!!! Black girls rock!

  • GAWD

    Great! Too bad about 50 cent. He’s a douche! Oprah and Beyonce are the only females on the list. I would’ve preferred any other female besides Beyonce, but whatever.

    How come Diddy didn’t make the list?

  • JaliliMaster

    Isn’t it sad that 9 out of ten (excluding Oprah) all ade their money as either singers/actors or athletes? The Big O is the only one that made it through other means (entertainement business). I’m sure if u checked the highest earning white celebs, most would be producers, or at the least, film directors, who generate their own money,as opposed to getting paid i.e. people giving you money for your sons, appearance in a movie, performance on the filed/court, or endorsements.

    Ask yourselves why Oprah is the richest of them all, even if u include whites. She excels at business, is a shrewd business woman, who generates her own money, therefore, her succes does not depend on anyone elses opinion of her talent/abilities!

    Is it any surprise that the richest person on the list is the only one (I think) who finished university. And u all say education means nothing. As Tiray says, think!

  • Ms.I'm too cute to be this damnn broke!

    they can take out one, two.. hell who am i kidding, they can take out all the zero’s and give me $712 per day and i’ll be skrate!

  • Born

    She is stumping for Obama, putting money in black institutions and communities, producing black films, assisting Africa and its peoples, educating the masses. Plus she is helping people of all nationalities here and overseas, everywhere. She is so abundantly blessed because she blesses others. And a black woman too…Think about it, black women were only as good as mammies and maids to some only a century ago…go ahead girl, go ahead!

  • avengerunlimited

    Wtf? Forbes has become a magazine of “lists”; every freaking week it’s the list of this…the list of that; the top 10 of this or that; Do you think Tiger Woods will sue Forbes for labeling him as Black?

  • Rambo

    @ Gawd…

    you are a hater and you have that crab in the barrel mentality….

    i happy for all my brothers and sisters on that list wish we had more…

    but where is puffy magic and bob johnson… that list looks suspect…

  • yapz

    beyonce is the only other female on that list. that what you call a female hutsler right there. and to the dude that was hatin on her get over it the girl makes money. more money then any of us on this site. this site really is a beyonce hater zone isnt it?



    so what if they made their money as entertainers or actors .. its still a form of talent, and artistry. how much would people pay to listen to you sing, or dance, etc … and they arent just making this money from take home checks. they’ve used their celebrity to build industries and commercialize from that. its no shame in actors or singer, and athletes

    being on that list.
