Ann Coulter has made a few interesting comments over the last few days. She said that women, Latinos and the LGBT community didn’t deserve civil rights because they didn’t go through slavery. She also said that people like Lawrence O’Donnell and Bill Maher only date black girls because of white guilt. Well, when the Fox News pundit appeared on The View today, Whoopi Goldberg had a few things to say to her.
Coulter appeared on the show to talk about her new book, Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama. The book talks about the black experience in America, which, according to Whoopi, Coulter has no right to write about.
Coulter said that her book wasn’t trying to talk about what it’s like to be black. Instead, the book is about how “white liberals” use (race to) promote causes that have nothing to do with blacks and, in fact, harm blacks.”
Goldberg said: “Please stop, please stop. If you’re going to talk about race, at least know what you’re talking about. Tell me how much you know about being black. You just made all these statements about how black people feel.
Coulter said:” This isn’t a book about black people. It’s a book about white liberals.”
Mediate reports that Coulter set off another round of arguments when she said that liberals have never cared about black people.
Coulter said: “I don’t think liberals ever cared about black people. Five minutes after the Civil Rights Act of ’64 passed, they start calling everything that has nothing to do with black people a ‘civil rights issue.’”
