What Does Ann Coulter Know About Being Black?
Conservative political commentator Ann Coulter went to ABC's The View to promote her new book Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama, when co-host Whoopi Goldberg became frustrated with some of the assumptions Coulter was making about black life.
"Race mongering has been very bad for America. Liberals use it to promote causes that have nothing to do with blacks," was one of Coulter's statements.
What does Ann Coulter know about being black? She talks about "race mongering," as if real racism never existed.
Coulter then introduced the "white guilt" topic by referring to the 1995 O.J. Simpson murder trial as the day "white America" said "that's it," "shutting down white guilt." "That ended up being the best thing that happened," she added.
Well, apparently, the Simpson verdict led to more guilty black criminals being convicted. According to Ann, "Brooklyn Juries" refrained from convicting black criminals before the O.J. trial "because of white guilt."
It's widely known that Ann Coulter says more than her share of ridiculous things, but her appearance on The View, and the subject of her book, may be a new low. Coulter claims civil rights issues are some kind of political strategy used by liberals — so she doesn't have to admit how she really feels about black people.
Co-host Sherri Shepherd asked the golden question, "if you're saying liberals don't care about black people, are you saying that Republicans embrace us in a warm fuzzy blanket?" "Well I do!" Coulter said.
Do you really, Ann? How can you claim to embrace a people whose struggles you dismiss as a matter of pure political propaganda?
