ABC is making wholesale changes on “The View,” with the sole exception of Whoopi Goldberg, who has a knack for delivering controversy, which equates to ratings.
With my apologies to “Marcus Luttrell,” the lone survivor delivered on her propensity to stir things up on Thursday’s show when she referred to a guest host as a “true white guy.”
The beneficiary of her racial stereotype was Blaze TV’s Will Cain, who would have brought the house down had he reciprocated by calling Whoopi a “true black woman.”
The show’s panel was discussing the power of words, when Cain asked: “Why have we gone to this place where words are the worst thing?”
Whoopi jumped in to say “America has… a history of utilizing words to harm people and hurt people.”
“You’ve got to be bigger than words, that’s the whole point,” Cain said, after reminding her of a time when “sticks and stones could break my bones but words cannot hurt me.”
Like a “true liberal,” Whoopi refused to yield, saying it’s acceptable for people to limit the use of words if they take offense to them.
“We’ll all be out of business, we’ll all stop talking, Cain said. “Everybody’s offended all the time, from the Fighting Irish to the Redskins. Everyone’s offended.”
“That is spoken like a true white guy,” Whoopi replied, before trying to soften the comment by saying she didn’t mean it “in a bad way.”
