Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar are an utter embarrassment to my gender. I find them offensive, as a woman. Idiocy, in action:
On HLN’s Joy Behar Show on Thursday, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg gave a racial explanation for Chris Matthews’ recent “I forgot he was black” remark about President Obama. Goldberg cracked that “this has been quite a year for the white man.” Behar replied, “Traumatic,” and Goldberg continued that “Traumatic in many ways because…you have to think before you speak.”
Whoopi goes on to say that calling black people articulate is offensive because “you wouldn’t tell white people, wow, you can dance. ” Wait, what? I’m not really sure where she is going with that comparison, unless SHE is implying that it is offensive to bring it up, because she believes that white people really can’t dance? And, if so, by extrapolation wouldn’t that mean she is also implying articulation is rare? Thus, I can only conclude that Whoopi is a racist-racist!
I’m not “traumatized” by having to think before I speak. See, I’m not an idiot, so I always try to think before I speak. I don’t allow others to think for me and then merely parrot their talking points, no matter how inane, like some people that I, unfortunately, know — Whoopi and Joy — do.
I also don’t focus on the density of a person’s melanin count either. Therefore, I don’t couch my thoughts and opinions worrying about racial implications. I say what I believe, to whomever I believe deserves it, whenever it is deserved. It’s a thing called equality. I treat everyone the same way. Post-racial; y’all should try it sometime.
