Here we go again. We’re not even a week into the New Year and Whoopi Goldberg has already misplaced her “Black Card.”
On a recent episode of “The View,” the hosts were discussing the possibility of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump winning the election.
Comedienne Joy Behar commented that if Trump were to win, Americans may want to leave the country. Whoopi seemed to have taken the joke more seriously than intended when she replied, “You know what? This is my country. My mother, my grandmother, my great grand folks, we busted ass to be here,” she began.
“I’m sorry. I’m an American. I’m not an African American, I’m not a chick[sic] American, I’m an American,” Whoopi randomly added.
“Since the 1700s my people have been here. So I’m an American alongside of the Native-Americans. That’s the bottom line.”
And guess who was egging Whoopi on? None other than Raven-Symoné who proudly reiterated, “I’m an American! I’ve been here too long to not just hold American.”
Welp. It seems as if Whoopi and Raven were “African American” when it was convenient for their careers. While Whoopi may have scored her Oscar for the film Ghost, one of her most memorable roles is in The Color Purple.
And Raven’s career will always be associated with the The Cosby Show, the premiere African American sitcom of the 80s.
We wonder at what point in their lives did the terms “black’ and “African American” become a hinderance to their success?
