“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Monday said perhaps white people need to get beat up so something is done about police violence.
“Do we need to see White people also get beat before anybody will do anything? I’m not suggesting that. So don’t write us and tell me what a racist I am. I’m just asking is that what people have to see in order to wake up and realize this affects us all?” Goldberg said.
“I asked this question way too many times at this table. But, you know, when will the brutality finally lead to some police reform from the ground up? Because clearly it doesn’t matter if it’s a White policeman or Black policeman. It is a problem in the policing itself. It seems things don’t seem to make sense to people unless it’s somebody they can feel or they can recognize,” she said.

Goldberg made her hateful remarks after five black Memphis police officers fatally beat a black motorist.
Five ex-Memphis police officers were charged with second-degree murder and kidnapping last Thursday in the death of black motorist, Tyre Nichols.
The officers, Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr. and Justin Smith – were fired on Friday after the motorist, Tyre Nichols, died following a violent confrontation during a January 7 traffic stop.
So black police officers killed a black man and Whoopi Goldberg responds by wanting white people beat up.
