The clucking hens on the View are at it (making fools of themselves on TV) again, this time fighting amongst themselves about CRT and whether black people are victims or not.
It began when Joy Behar, who’s far from being the sharpest tool in the shed, went on an ill-informed tear about how terrible white people are, saying:
“They haven’t even paid reparations to Native Americans in this country. It’s not going to happen so fast. I’m just saying, people don’t want to admit that they did something wrong, especially white people. White people don’t want to take responsibility for what they did in this country.”
Then, Lindsey Gragner, who is black, jumped in and attacked Behar’s position, saying that whites need to learn not about CRT and black victimization, but about “black excellence.” In her words:
“It’s a whole different conversation about critical race theory. I don’t think it’s related, because if we talk about critical race theory … my whole conversation yesterday was about teaching about black excellence. I want to see that be the first issue on your agenda, on your agenda. Because I want to see black people thrive. We are not victims. Ok? Even though we have been victimized, we are not victims.”
Continuing the argument as the discussion drifted toward CRT in schools, Granger then gave an example of what “black excellence” should be taught, saying:
“We’re learning about slavery for sure, and I think we should learn about the fact that Africans started the vaccination process. That was the African tradition. Why have I never learned that until I was a grown adult.” Read more
