Wendy Williams Will Face Roland Martin Thursday On 'The Wendy Williams Show' After Roland Told Her To 'Shut Up'

Wendy Williams has offended many in her fan base with remarks made on the subject of Jesse Williams speech at the BET awards. On her celebrity gossip show, Wendy brought up Historically Black Colleges and also mentioned the NAACP in a less than favorable light as excluding whites. Williams may have also lost her huge Chevrolet sponsorship, according to Love B. Scott.

Roland Martin, who is an activist and commentator, was also angered and frustrated with Ms. Williams' comments on the subject of Jesse Williams. Here is what Ms. Williams said to get everyone so upset, as reported by The Wrap.

"His speech was very poignant. On the other hand, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically white college. We have historically Black colleges. What if there was the National Organization for White People, only? There's the NAACP."

"Over the past few days, if you don't know, I've been facing some really harsh criticism from our viewers and other people in the media because of my comments regarding racism. One of my biggest critics was a journalist and activist Roland Martin who I've known for several years, but he did what he thought he had to do."

"If you actually bothered to read a book, and not gossip magazines, you might know some of these things. Wendy let me help you out. When you are on TV, and you have no idea what you are talking about, Shut the H*ll up. Don't open your mouth. Don't embarrass yourself, because you sound silly."

Wendy Williams apparently doesn't mind discussing her unfortunate public faux pas on national television.

"You do realize that the NAACP was founded by a mix of folks that were black and white. Do you realize that the first president of the NAACP, Wendy, was white? If you actually bothered to read something, you would realize that. It's also called the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. White folks have always been members of the NAACP. Always."

Roland Martin explained to Wendy Williams why black universities are referred to as historically black colleges while white colleges are not called white colleges.

"One of the reasons you don't have historically white universities is because we just simply call them universities," he said. "The fact of the matter is you can go around the country and you will see universities, Wendy, that are 70, 80, 90, 95 percent white."

Wendy Williams and her viewers are set to learn a lot from Roland Martin on Thursday.
