Ms. Goldberg's Holocaust Comment
As African Americans and as Black people WORLDWIDE, race IS about skin color. That is simply OUR experience.
But, I believe this Rabbi's assesment to be the most fair, reasonable and logical as I have read or heard re Ms. Goldberg's Holocaust comment:
I believe this Op-Ed assesment to have been the most fair, reasonable and logical as I have read or heard.
"As a Jew and a rabbi, I’m embarrassed about what happened to Whoopi Goldberg"
He also goes on state in his op-ed:
"Did Goldberg mean the Holocaust had nothing to do about race? To me, if it seemed that she was putting “racism” in the Holocaust to the side, it was only to make a different, perhaps more thoughtful, point, that, with skin color not playing a role in its anti-Jewish violence, the reality of the Holocaust itself is even more extraordinary, terrifying proof of what people are capable of doing to other people. She could have been more articulate in her wording, but that’s what happens in unscripted television."
