Someone Inform Whoopie Goldberg They Also Lynched Blacks

I don’t watch The View, but I heard this little tidbit of stupidity while listening to the radio this morning. Whoopie Goldberg, who replaced Rosie O’Donnell on the show defended Michael Vick, the football player who pleaded guilty to federal dogfighting charges, saying:

from where he comes from” in the South, dogfighting isn’t that unusual. more (new window)

I have news for you, Whoopie, in the south, it’s not unusual to hate blacks and treat them as “less than human” and not that long ago it was pretty common for whites to lynch blacks. So, Whoopie, next time some KKK group lynches a black man, just remember before you go getting all irate, that in the south hating blacks isn’t that unusual. And let me also remind Ms. Goldberg that not all that long ago in our history, people in the south actually owned other people, you know, just part of the culture.

At some point we grow up, become educated, and should have the sense and sanity to know that some things are just wrong, and the fact that it’s part of the local culture doesn’t excuse inhumane treatment of people or animals.

  1. right on. i literally just had this discussion 2 minutes ago with a co-worker.

  2. That’s horrible. Why in the world would people listen to someone go on if they can’t comprehend something that happened not that long ago in this country? Also, the Civil War was the most costly war for the United States.. Since our dead were on both sides.
