American remains bitterly divided with regards to race relations. While the left works feverishly to recruit guilty white liberals to strengthen the black supremacist “movement” known as “Black Lives Matter,” many Americans just simply wish to see an end to this kind of racism and division.
While true racial harmony may never be a reality, the current status of race relations has only been made significantly worse by America’s race-hustlers who gleefully exploit division for political gain.
There are two types of people: those who say “African-American” and those who say “black.” I am proud to belong to the latter group.
Don’t get me wrong; I am happy to embrace cultural heritages (though it is odd that Southerners are disallowed from doing so). But I am “white.” Nobody refers to me as “Scotch-Irish-American,” nor would I want them to. I am an American. I’ve never been to Scotland, nor have I spied the rolling hills of Ireland.
However, millions of blacks in America are referred to as “African-American” despite never having come from Africa. While many embrace the label, one prominent black celebrity has refused the label that imposes a division in identity.
Whoopi Goldberg, the liberal lunatic who helps strain race relations in America, actually spoke quite reasonably on Tuesday when she denounced the term “African-American” and insisted that she is an “American.”
On The View, after someone referred to her as an “African-American,” Whoopi set the record straight and insisted,
“You know what uh uh! This is my country. 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!”
It’s not often that Goldberg is right, but let’s give credit where due. We cannot honestly claim to be working towards a more harmonious America so long as we embrace these kinds of divisive labels that imply a division of allegiance.
Either we’re all Americans or we are not. Goldberg, to her credit, has made it clear which side she stands on.
