Whoopi Goldberg Tries Out CNN’s New Policy Of Allowing N**ger On The Air… And Gets Bleeped By ABC

By: Andrea Ryan

How confusing.  CNN has decided that saying the word “n**ger” on national television is now acceptable.  However, ABC still finds it offensive.

According to the Daily Mail, CNN anchor, Don Lemon, has launched a new policy at CNN where it is no longer acceptable to say the “N-Word”, since it diminishes the offensiveness of the original slur.  Instead, viewers will now be subjected to receiving the full impact of the pejorative in all its offensive glory.  But hold on to your filters, TV personalities…ABC’s not on board.  In all her excitement, Whoopi Goldberg tried out CNN’s newly allowed word yesterday on “The View”, and was promptly bleeped.

I guess ABC, and the rest of society, haven’t received the “new manual” on political correctness, yet.  Or, maybe they think the N-Word is just “too cute” to give up.

Via Drudge, Newsbusters reports,

Oh the delicious irony.

On ABC’s The View Tuesday, as co-host Whoopi Goldberg supported Saturday’s call by CNN’s Don Lemon for reporters to say the N-word when quoting folks that have, the censors actually bleeped her when she said the word herself …

Goldberg introduced the segment by mentioning how various CNNers have said the N-word during recent newscasts, after which she mentioned Lemon’s call for this to universally be the case.

After some give and take mostly with co-host Barbara Walters who expressed discomfort with the idea, Goldberg said, “What reporters do is they report the news. And every time you make it ‘the N-word,’ it’s cute.”

She continued, “But I feel very strongly about the word. Do not eliminate it. It’s part of our history. Every time people try to sort of make it sound better or more acceptable, let’s call it what it is.”

Walters then asked Goldberg if she uses the actual word.

“I am bleeped, ever since the word was buried, you know, there was a whole ceremony with a whole funeral – people buried it. Ever since then, you cannot say the word on television,” answered Goldberg.

“They’ve tried to fix ‘Roots,’” she continued. “They’ve taken it out of books…This idea that taking it out makes it somehow better is ridiculous. It’s part of the culture. Let us speak on it and say this is what it is.

It’s too bad Dr. Laura didn’t wait a year before she repeated the word on her radio show, while trying to make the same point as CNN’s Don Lemon.

And in other news…the New Black Panthers’ call for race war and blood shed to kill “crackers” continues.

    I think it should be used. Let them say it and say it and say it.
    Don’t bleep it.
    Who’s it going to offend?

    Btw… @ Militant Conservative – Nice play on words. That is also a fitting for the genius nagger pundit, Goldturd.

    Do they bleep out cr(beeeep)ka on television?

    I don’t know, since I haven’t willingly watched TV for more than 10 years.

    How about sp(beeeeeep)ck? Ch(beeeeep)nk?

    How about Lim(beeeeep)y?

    No? Just that one word? Damn that’s surreal.

  • ahem

    It’s probably offensive to the many Black middle-class professionals who would never dream of talking like that: doctors, lawyers, business men, accountants, pastors, etc.

    Why do they have to be subjected to that crap? Why should their children?

    Just a guess, but I suspect I’m right.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    The use of the word N’r seems to offend only black Americans, but not self-proclaimed N’rs, when it is used by self-proclaimed N’rs. But when a non-black uses the word N’r, it offends non-racist whites (but not racist hillbillies), black Americans, and self-proclaimed N’rs.

    Does that about sum it up?

  • Taqiyyotomist

    The question then remains: who did the bleeping, and what is their ethnicity?

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Because race is what matters now, right?


  • Stella Baskomb

    I’m offended by the pejorative “crackers”. Not to mention “bitches” and “hos”.

    So what about me?

    Must I accept being offended from now on when I listen to radio or TV, or read a newspaper ?

    It is just a word. People should have the right to free speech unless it is promoting violence against another. Does not mean I would say it. I also do not let loose a string of curse words………………often. This idea of trying to police and legislate speech and thought is wrong. There is not a ‘hate crime’ that is worst than another crime that is the same.

    I do not like the word. I do not use the word because some feel it is offensive and I tend to agree.

    Earlier today, Yahoo was promoting the clip of Holder saying he was looking into Zimmerman/Martin to see if it could be a racial hate crime. He was concerned!

    Justice is blind? He has a racial group putting out a bounty on a person but that is not a hate crime? Professional MSM Pooper Scoopers and our Elected Voices seem to suffer his same illness.

    The more of America’s treasury you can spend, the bigger your bonus. On anything and everything — just SPEND IT ALL. That’s the goal. And it is incentivised.

    The government is giving employees BONUSES for spending our money.

    The more they can spend, the bigger the bonus.



    Keep stirring the pot and race roits are around the corner, all designed by Imam Obama and his minions.

    Will Mittens ever point out the fact that this is coming from the Imam. Do you think that this will cause Imam Obama to try and cancel the upcoming election? Probably corrupt it instead som no one will question the voter fraud.

    Mittens is toast, he will be like McCain and not fight the Imam. Besides Mittens and the Imam are so much alike, there is not a bit of difference between the two.

    Prepare for the Imam’s re-election that is when the Brown Shirts (aka the New Black Panter Party) will come out of the wood work.

    Re: my last few off-topic comments:

    Good God, the GSA might just be the most corrupt agency in the whole government.

    And I’ve never even head of the GSA until last week.

    Apparently, their “job” in this whole Marxist plan, is to SPEND IT ALL.

    And what fun they must be having while doing it!

    THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of employees, tasked with SPENDING YOUR MONEY until the United States is like Zimbabwe.

    Then again, there are the Teachers’ unions doing the same thing. Party, Party, Party! As far away from your home state as possible, and at as lavish a resort as possible!

    I mean, what would you do if you were Richard Pryor’s character in Brewster’s Millions?

    What would you do differently that what these Communists are doing?

    Cloward/Piven Strategy. Google it. New York State was the micro of this national Macro.

    Spend it all, and you WIN!

    Addressing the use of nigger by black people, Cornel West said, “There’s a certain rhythmic seduction to the word. If you speak in a sentence, and you have to say cat, companion, or friend, as opposed to nigger, then the rhythmic presentation is off. That rhythmic language is a form of historical memory for black people… When Richard Pryor came back from Africa, and decided to stop using the word onstage, he would sometimes start to slip up, because he was so used to speaking that way. It was the right word at the moment to keep the rhythm together in his sentence making.”[16] Contemporarily, the implied racism of the word nigger has rendered its usages social taboo. In the US, magazines and newspapers often do not use it, instead printing “family-friendly” censored versions, usually “n*gg*r”, “n**ger”, “n——”, and “the N-word”; however, historians and social activists, such as Dick Gregory, criticize the euphemisms and their usage as intellectually dishonest, because using the euphemism “the N-word” instead of nigger robs younger generations of Americans of the full history of Black people in America.

    “I love it when a plan comes together.”–Obama

    That’s funny. I was just thinking about The A-Team a couple of minutes ago.

    …and how every single antagonist was a white guy in an “evil capitalist” mold, in each and every episode.

    I could be wrong, but I bet even the black “antagonists” in that show were ultimately being used by the white capitalist, down to every episode.

    Even Scooby Doo, the worst animation the world has ever seen, used that mold for each and every villain.

    This plan has been well-played, for decades, by those who designed it.

    One theory is that slaver foremen in the antebellum South used bullwhips to discipline African slaves, with such use of the whip being described as ‘cracking the whip’. The white foremen who cracked these whips were thus known as ‘crackers’.[2][3][4]

    Another theory places the word origin in Scotland where a “craic” or “craicker” was a person who talked loudly or boasted. This term was later used to describe white Southerners, particularly those who were poorly educated and possessed little means.

    Yet another theory suggests that the pejorative term came from the stereotype that poor white people often bought food stamps for cracked corn.

    Something tells me a big can of Worms is being opened. History books and authors certainly have used the words cracker and n-word for years.

    There is no way that you can bar freedom of speech. We are all well aware that some networks are bias.

    Cracker can be used because it doesn’t sound as bad a n-word? But with a black in the White House they will never get away with N-word.

    Rush used the word S and see what happen there. What is good for the left is fine. But those on the right are torpedoed.

  • Patty

    Double standard and a lot of Double Talk on the View. And I don’t base my opinions on what a bunch of talking heads have to say.

  • dunce

    They are trying to stoke racial trouble, any white person that uses the slur will be recorded for all eternity and the policy will then be returned to the present case and every thing previously said will be used against them. All the democrats will get free passes. The only people calling for this are liberals and it is being coordinated by the white house. Ignore them and they will soon try to promote some other controversy. Ignore that one too. Make him run on his record.

    The funny thing about Roots: it would be today considered a seminal, incredible work of historical fiction — if Haley hadn’t claimed it was factual. Roots would have been on par with anything by Mark Twain, had he just called it fiction, since it was.

    Sad, that. Deception can do that to a reputation.

  • [email protected]

    Ahem @ 6 – You are naive. If you don’t think black “professionals” use the term, you just haven’t been subjected to the full panorama of black culture.

    As for this white chick, I’ve got enword fatigue. I’m sick of seeing, hearing from, hearing about and dealing with blacks, period.

  • [email protected]

    dunce @ 24 nails it.

  • [email protected]

    Patty @ 22, the problem is volume. When too few whites dare to use racial epithets, it’s a big deal when one does. But if all would bandy about such terms as often as possible, the leftwing scolders would no longer be able to keep up with it. They would also realize the tide had turned on their brainwashing and little double-standard games.

  • Okay for me.
    But not for thee!!
    This is going to be ugly.

  • Soon even ebonic language will be the norm on ABC,NBC, MSNBC, CBS, NPR, PBS by so called black reporters and journalists.

  • Sam Stone

    Whats this nagger trying to prove? Ginning up the rhetoric is the only thing i can see.

  • vityas

    This is a “moderate muslim” situation. If assimilated, professional black individuals are offended by the use of the n word, let them police their own community. Since so few say anything, what are we to infer from that?

    Words have meaning. If they want to call themselves that, fine with me. Reclaim it all you want.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Ebonics is already the norm on my “boost” phone.

    You dial “add” to find out how many minutes you have.

    “Yo! Hode up, foo! I’ma check and see whatchu got fa minutes!” (j/k, but it used to be damn close to that, until they changed the recording.)

    Even Boost’s “tagline” is “Where you at!” which really implies that N’word at the end.

    Because only black people have boost prepaid phones, you see.

    :shakes head:

  • Paul

    Racial division isn’t getting the results Obama and the left were hoping for, so CNN and Poopi are turning up the heat. Until we (America) gets to the point where Obama gets to declare martial law, the job is incomplete.

    Whoopi is a sell out to America, and to black American people of ignorance. She is corrupting innocents.

    She is an example of what happens to people when liberalsism takes over their lives. They lose self respect, faith and the ability to seek righteousness in their daily lives.

    She is an example of what Obama supporters aspire to be and will become.
