This morning on the show “The View” was the biggest screaming match since Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s showdown over politics.
The ladies were discussing People magazine’s new interview with the Obamas about their personal experience with racial profiling. Whoopi Goldberg said that racial profiling is not an act of racism, but an act of ignorance.
O’Donnell, Rosie Perez and guest-host Laverne Cox from “Orange is the New Black” said yes, ignorance is a part of racial profiling, but being followed around in a store – or in President Obama’s case, being mistaken for the valet at a swanky party – is unequivocally racist”.
Perez asked Whoopi, “You don’t think it’s racist when somebody turns to the leader of the free country and says, ‘Can you park my car?’”
Things got heated. See video…
