Racist Rant Against Whoopi Goldberg
Steppin' Out editor Chaunce Hayden usually rants against Howard Stern, and I reprinted some of those columns here until realizing they stem from a deep-seated agenda that involves him being banned from Stern's show.
Well, this week, he named Whoopi Goldberg "Asshole of the week" for her "profane" backstage performance at The View, where she came down hard on the White House crashers and relied a lot on the f-word.
But Hayden falls back on his own way more unfortunate terminology, stuff that reeks of thinly veiled racism.
When the male crasher defended his wife to Whoopi, Hayden says, it sparked "the ghetto in her to ignite."
And Hayden's conclusion? Whoopi has "the self-control and intelligence of a flea-picking primate."
Can you imagine chastising a black person for insensitivity and then comparing them to a monkey???
