Whoopi Goldberg Delivers Warning to Clarence Thomas: “Better Hope They Don’t Come for You”

Supreme Court Justice Justice Clarence Thomas helped overturn Roe v. Wade and now seems poised to reconsider other previously protected rights like contraception, same sex marriage and same sex relationships. The View host Whoopi Goldberg sent a stark warning for Thomas.

She warned , “Well, he better hope that they don’t come for you, Clarence, and say you should not be married to your wife — who happens to be white, because they will move that, and you better hope that nobody says ‘you know you’re not in the constitution you’re back to being a quarter of a person.'”

Whoopi Goldberg can call herself whatever she wants!

By George L. Cook III.

I'm sure many have heard Whoopi Goldberg's comments about her not being African American on the TV show The View and heard about the backlash that followed on social media. Just in case, you missed it read Whoopi's comments below.

“You know what uh uh! This is my country,” Goldberg said. “My mother, my grandmother, my great-grand folks, we busted ass to be here. I’m sorry. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American, I’m not a chick American, I’m an American!”

Now I identify as African-American and have my own opinions about what Goldberg said but you know what, THAT DOESN'T MATTER!

My argument against those who have a problem with the term African-American or any other hyphenated identifier has always been that we as Americans have the right to identify however we want. So to me, those African Americans upset at Whoopi for simply wanting to identify as American are being hypocritical. This is about being able to identify as you want not on making others identify as you would like them to. Whoopi Goldberg has that right to call herself whatever she wants whether anyone likes it or not.

That may not be a popular stance but I believe it's one that those who want to be treated fairly and equally should embrace. Whoopi still stands up for African American causes and issues and how she identify does not change that.

I, you, and Whoopi Goldberg can call ourselves whatever we want. What we call ourselves is not the most important issue, though. It's what we do to make things better that ultimately counts.
