WHOOPI GOLDBERG SAYS BLACK WOMEN WEARING BLONDE HAIR, WEAVE IS APPROPRIATION

 

Comedian's latest comments on 'The View' may ruffle a few feathers

Whoopi Goldberg's latest comments on "The View," may have some Black women giving her the major side eye. 

While dissecting the debate over appropriation following Jesse Williams' powerful acceptance speech at the 2016 BET Awards, the EGOT legend had very strong opinions about cultural appropriation, and who exactly is doing the appropriating.

"I think there's a lot of appropriation going back and forth," Goldberg said. "The weave doesn't look like this," she said as she touched her natural locs, "the weave kind of looks like this," she added, while pointing to the blonde hair of guest co-host Sara Haines.

The comedian and actress made the argument that Black women are just as guilty of appropriating white women as white people are guilty of appropriating Black culture. 
 

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: 'I'M NOT AFRICAN AMERICAN'


"If you're going to talk about appropriating, and what's cool and what's not cool, we're all in deep doodoo, because we're doing it to each other constantly," Goldberg said. 

Guest co-host Sunny Hostin counter argued that Black women, a "less privileged group," can't be guilty of cultural appropriation. "Black women for so long have been told that, that's what the standard of beauty is," she said.

"When you see these wonderful Black women who have blonde hair, a weave...we're trying to get to the place of saying we're as good as you. That's what everybody is doing. Everybody is appropriating...the Japanese...the Black folks...Spanish people...we're appropriating each other," Goldberg interjected. 

"It's not just a Black thing. This is happening all over the place. We do it all the time."

Whoopie is in such a hurry to defend her masters she doesn’t know her own cultural history....Many Black people have and are born with natural blonde hair---My brothers hair is a dirty blonde for a long time I had a blonde mustache until it turned dark brown---There are many Africans with blonde hair as well as other Black races---She should shut her mouth and not speak until she has facts in hand----tap dancing coon is D.A.S. (dumb as shyt)
