I used to really like Whoopi Goldberg. I thought she was a bit of fun and the “Sister Act” movies were fucking awesome. However, ever since Elizabeth Hassle-whatever left “Thew View”, Whoopi has kind of stepped in as the resident crazy person, making all sorts of outlandish comments.
The other day, those yakkity yak bitches were weighing in on the whole Justin Bieber n-word scandal and Whoopi, being a woman of colour, chimed in and actually DEFENDED Biebs. She didn’t stick up for him because he was young and stupid, which I could maybe accept, but because he was Canadian, and here in Canada we don’t really use the n-word and get what it means. Yeah, ok.
Whoopi mouth farted out these words of wisdom about the situation on “The View” and, frankly, there are not enough eye roll gifs on the planet to truly represent my reaction to this fuckery:
You know, Canadian words — I’m going to say the word so get ready to beat me. Nigger doesn’t mean anything in Canada. And how do I know this? Well, I did a movie last year, in Canada, and a young, wonderful Canadian woman wrote it, and I’m reading it and I’m thinking, ‘We wouldn’t say anything like this.’ So I went to the director and I said, what is this? And he said, oh, she lives here. And I said so she doesn’t know anything, she doesn’t get what we’re talking about. What I’m saying is that, when you are 15 and you’re someplace where that’s not a word that you have associated with people of colour…they weren’t calling them that.
Oh, you did a movie there last year and now you’re an expert on how Canadians use their racial slurs? Well, I have one thing to say to that:
As someone who has lived in Canada since 1986 (when I was brutally evicted from my mother’s loving womb), I can assume you that people here use the n-word the exact same way as people in the US.
And not associating that word with people of colour? Bitch please! The joke was: “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?”!!! Then he called them n-words! That is a racist joke, you dumbass!
Clearly Whoopi Goldberg needs to sit down and watch season 3, episode 14 of the beloved Canadian teen drama, “Degrassi”, because then she will understand how serious the n-word is in Canada. Someone calls a black character the n-word and man, it isn’t cool. I got yo back, BLT (yes, the character’s name was BLT). Also, side note, I’m Canadian and I don’t even feel right typing that word, which is why I keep saying “the n-word”, so, you know, that should say something.
