What’s Wrong with Whoopi Goldberg?
(TheGrio.com) — The annoyingly amoral Whoopi Goldberg is at it again, with what seems to be her mantra: “You can do whatever offensive thing you like, as long as you’re famous.” First, there was the defense of a “comedy performance” (reportedly conceived by her) featuring her then-boyfriend Ted Danson wearing blackface in 1993. Then in 2009, she stood up for Hollywood director Roman Polanski, who’d been convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl. In that case, Whoopi seemed to make a distinction between “rape” and “rape-rape”, as if there is a difference. The latest beneficiary of Whoopi’s unbelievably apologist streak is Mel Gibson, the actor who seems to dislike every ethnic group other than his own.
