There are some fans of The View that believe Golberg should receive more harsh punishment. Whoopi Goldberg’s co-host Sara Haines is disagrees with those fans and states ‘To learn from a moment is all we can ask of anyone. And prioritizing punitive measures at the expense of the message/issue (and teaching moment) are misguided.’
Whoopi Goldberg’s comment of the ‘Holocaust is not about race’ because it involved ‘two groups of white people,’ has caused quite a stir online. She believes that it was example of ‘man’s inhumanity to man.’
She later tried to roll back her comments in an apology on Twitter on January 31, writing: ‘On today’s show, I said the Holocaust “is not about race, but about man’s inhumanity to man.” I should have said it was about both.’
‘This was an incredibly unfortunate incident. Whoopi is a lifelong ally to the Jewish community. She is not an anti-Semite. Period. I am sad. And I have nothing else to say,’ said co-host Ana Navarro despite clashing with her on the show. The other View co-hosts is also reportedly ‘furious’ by Goldberg’s suspension.
Whoopi Goldberg went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday and claimed that, to her, race was something she could ‘see.’
‘I feel, being black, when we talk about race it’s a very different thing to me,’ she told Colbert. ‘So I said I thought the Holocaust wasn’t about race. And it made people very angry. I’m getting a lot of mail from folks and a lot of anger.
‘But I thought it was a salient discussion because as a black person I think of race as being something that I can see.’
BLACK HISTORY MONTH
NuBreed Till The World Is Over believes there is something else at play here in the media. Being “Black History Month,” he believes “Hollywood” may be trying to stir controversy to prevent the demographic of The View with an older women demographic from paying attention from a younger demographic that may sway them about biblical bloodlines.
The vlogger describes that Whoopi Goldberg did not say anything wrong per se, but the deeper issue pertains to questioning certain narratives that is being shown by mainstream media. Check out the video below to hear what he had to say.
