Whoopi Goldberg - "Great WHITE Way" Needs To Change

On The View Whoopi Goldberg said she is going to advocate that "Great WHITE Way" to describe Broadway be changed to

"Great BRIGHT Way"

Agree?

She sounds bored.

She's taking the piss.

The best part of that segment was Megcunt McCain saying she had never heard Broadway referred to as "the Great White Way."

The bitch lives in New York City. Can she possibly be that stupid?

But is is white-white?

Whoopi is so damn dumb.

They should change all the bulbs to black lights.

Have you watched her on that show? The answer is not yes. It's HELL FUCKIN' YES!

Whoopi is very disadvantaged. She’s only worth $60 million dollars and earned ONLY $12 million for Sister Act 2, becoming the highest paid actress ever at the time. Sad.

How much did she have to pay out in her divorces?

by Anonymousreply 1006/24/2020

If I'm not mistaken the name comes from "Broadway" being an early adopter of incandescent streetlights.

It's an old relic of a term that implies elegance and grander--qualities that have been increasingly diminishing in B'way shows during the course of Meghan's lifetime. Someone who grew up in the DC glitterati wouldn't be fazed by the Broadway she saw upon arrival in the past half decade.

Whoopi “rape rape” Goldberg is a fool. Shouldn’t she be defending Mel Gibson after Winona Ryder’s latest interview?

by Anonymousreply 1206/24/2020

Well the name “Broad”way itself is troublesome. It is disrespectful to women to refer to them as “broads”.

Just call it The Merman--- Merperson--- Ethel. Just call it Ethel.

I buy a bulb called white light. Are they going to change the name of that too? Will it become illegal to even say the word white anymore. When I order white bed sheets or a comforter what will it be called in the future. Will tooth whitener products be renamed.

This is becoming insane. When is someone in power going to have the guts to say ENOUGH! Granted maybe no other ethnic group, at least among white people, Irish, Italian, have been treated as badly as black people in America's history, but there is such a thing as taking things too far. Can a black person who commits a very serious crime even be arrested anymore? Of course someone shouldn't be killed for such minor things as being drunk or selling an single cigarette, but if you know something is a crime, don't do it. I've managed to get though my life without ever committing a crime, other than maybe jaywalking. I didn't grow up rich or even well to do. There were lots of things in life, to this day, I've had to do without. That's life.

Joy Behar also advocated for changing many words in the dictionary including "Black Sheep" and "blacklist" and, no, I am not kidding.

What the fuck happened to Behar anyway? She used to be funny and now she's like the sad aunt you invite because you have to, then place in a corner so she can smoke and leave crusty lipstick on the cigarette butt. Ugly inside and out.

We're a nation that just went through a toilet paper shortage, r15 & r17.

They are just as absurd now as that was then. Personally, I say let it out, hear how stupid you sound, and move on from there rather than suffering in silent indignation.

(I also hope that works in the reverse as the GOP keeps--literally--pounding the table about how Christianity is being stripped from them. I'd rather have them sound baboonish in public than behind closed Fakebook groups).

The Great White Way is referring to the white light bulbs of Broadway. Its an old term. It does not refer in any way to race.

Keep it "The Great White Way." Not everything needs to be changed especially when it's a harmless expression. If you don't know what the expression means, then do your research before suggesting changing it.

Should we also eliminate expressions such as "pitch black?" What about "back sheep of the family." It doesn't mean race; it just means "the different one of the family."

She needs to go after White Christmas and the people who suggest a white Christmas is preferable to a non-white Christmas.

And while all of this is being debated, the Trump administration just confirmed it's 200th judge. Not a single black person appointed by this administration.

You would think that would be a more pressing issue.

So has this shitty show finally jumped the shark? They decimated this thing, it used to be a decent informative show when Barbara was running it. Change the name of it to "The Sewage".

Is Meghan even allowed to say how ridiculous all of this PC nonsense is? She seems muzzled lately. On The Talk it nothing but BLM and white privilege talk all the time.

Exactly, R30. By rational averages there should be at least 26.

But on my spins through conservative social media today I noticed that everyone is stressing that we need to move on from seeing race...that race doesn't matter...that Black history is American history so we need to eliminate Black History Month.

If you were to point that fact out to them, they would call you racist because patriotic Americans don't care about race--only racists!

Also, R22, Don't forget this was supposed to happen...but didn't...but maybe could...

Would that solve the problem?

And speaking of Whoopi, is Barbara Walters so far gone into dementia that she no longer makes public appearances? Or is she too embarrassed to show her face on The View?

by Anonymousreply 4706/28/2020

R47, it's been rumoured for 2-3 years that Wawa Walters is in stages of severe dementia or Alzheimer's. The last pic I saw of her, she looked like a shell of herself. I was never a fan of her, but I'd never wish that on anyone.

Whoopi was absolutely serious but it was an idea that was told to her, not her own, which she said up front. She thought it was a great idea. Joy jumped in with removing "blacklist", etc. Lunacy.

by Anonymousreply 5406/29/2020

Everyone on The View is given their point to argue. Raven didn't think up that "Watermelondrea" stuff. She agreed to "sell it", though.
