The storyline remains the same: white people are privileged and blacks are oppressed. This narrative is a surprise to an overwhelming majority of white people. I can honestly say, no one has handed me a blank check because of my skin color, nor have I received something for nothing. I work for a living. I earn my keep.
So I find it perplexing when prosperous and pampered blacks feel the need to liken themselves to slaves while earning millions of dollars for basically doing nothing. Whoopi Goldberg sees herself as a bonded woman as reported by the Inquisitr:
The insider believes Goldberg is doing this to push execs of ABC to cut her from the program so she can be paid without doing her work. “She knows if they did fire her, they’d have to pay out her contract and she’d be paid $5 million for doing nothing.”
“Whoopi loves the money, but she doesn’t want to work so hard anymore,” the source declared. “She doesn’t come in prepared, she doesn’t really engage with other panelists and guests. She gives some one-liners and moves on.”
Does Whoopi Goldberg believe she’s a federal government employee? They’re the only ones I know of who can get away with that kind of crap.
I can honestly say I didn’t make the political connection with the Black Lives Matter crowd during Beyonce’s Super Bowl 50 performance. Her outfit and choreography was reputedly a demonstration of solidarity with this movement and the Black Panthers.
I personally don't care. But what I do find amusing is her celebrity afforded her something very few people get a chance to experience and that is a police escort to the Super Bowl.
Should these people have a new slogan? How about: Black Whiners Matter.
