The only thing missing was the split screen. Rosie O'Donnell doesn't just have a hard time getting her point across with conservatives like Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View. Fellow liberal Whoopi Goldberg barely let her get a word in edgewise on the topic of racism before the talk show's winter break, and the tabloids are having a field day over it!
Their most recent televised dust-up happened during a discussion about racism in America on the Dec. 18 show. Goldberg— who would defend Satan if he ever escaped from hell—said she didn't believe it was racist for someone to mistake President Barack Obama for a valet.
Goldberg felt the occurrence was ignorance, not racism. Rosie Perez and guest host Laverne Cox from Orange Is The New Black disagreed, while Nicolle Wallace pretty much stayed silent, except to ask if the country electing a black president didn't signal a change. It was O'Donnell's opinion that apparently pissed Goldberg off the most.
“Listen, you are a white lady telling me what is racist to you, which is fine."
O'Donnell shot back:
“I’m a gay American who has been called a dyke! I know what hatred and homophobia looks like!”
Goldberg said it wasn't the same. O'Donnell replied:
“I have a black kid I raise, Whoopi! I have a black kid in my house!
Goldberg continued to dismiss her co-host's opinion, until O'Donnell finally exploded by telling her you don't have to be black to know what racism is.
When Whoopi Goldberg isn't defending the celebrity scum of the earth on The View, and/or clarifying the difference between rape and "rape-rape", she's telling someone she doesn't have the right to her opinion because of her skin tone. Can someone greenlight Sister Act 3 already? I need a break.
