In a National Review Column Katherine Timpf wrote about Whoppi Goldberg and cultural appropriation:
“I think there’s a lot of appropriation going back and forth, the weave . . . the weave doesn’t look like this,” Goldberg said, grabbing her own hair, and then adding “the weave kind of looks like this,” while pointing to the hair of her blonde co host.
“If you are going to talk about appropriating and what’s cool and what’s not, then we are all in deep doo-doo because we are doing it to each other constantly. Everybody is appropriating. Japanese are appropriating. Black folks are appropriating. Spanish people appropriate. We are appropriating each other. It’s not just a black thing.”
Ms. Timpf rightfully believes that the impact of the appropriation needs to be examined before the appropriator gets shamed. What she may not realize however that Whoopi Goldberg’s cultural appropriation has caused additional hatred toward a minority already the subject of bias throughout the world.
Whoopi Goldberg is a stage name. Her birth name is Caryn Elaine Johnson – in other words, despite using the stage name Goldberg she isn’t, nor has she ever been Jewish. The problem is by using that stage name, some people blame her craziness on the Jews.
Take for example an episode of The View that ran in May 2015 when Ms. Goldberg went on a rant that caused nightmares and impotence across the country:
There is a big difference. Sometimes all you want is sex, okay, I’m sorry, I know this is — no, no, no. Let me just reiterate by saying as I always do, keep your e-mails and your tweets and stuff to yourself cause I don’t care. But, you know, I used to get in big trouble on this show all the time because I said, you know, I don’t want a relationship. Sometimes I do want sex and I don’t mind a hit-and-run. But that’s — because I don’t want to have your kids, I don’t want to meet your family, I just want to get laid. And people — people think, you know, I know more women who are like that because they’re like, look, when I’m looking for him the sex is what comes secondary because if he’s a bone-head, I don’t know if I want him. I just want to take care of that itch and move on.
Now there is nothing wrong with Whoopi having sexual needs, all humans have them. But to many, especially those with both an “X” and a “Y” chromosome the very pondering of Whoopi Goldberg fulfilling those needs caused a loss of sex drive that main-lining testosterone while watching porn couldn’t even cure.
And because of her stage name, the Jews got blamed.
In the interest of tolerance and preventing Anti-Semitism, I believe that Ms. Goldberg should remove the cultural appropriation and change her stage name.
It’s true that the Jews are supposed to be the “chosen people,” but it’s time for Whoopi to choose someone else for a change. The Jews already have their fair share of famous embarrassments. Do you realize how hard it is every Father’s Day for Jews to see Woody Allen walk around with his wife/daughter? Who do you think got blamed when Barbara Boxer told General Michael Walsh to stop calling her the military approved Ma’am and start calling her senator. We Jews also have to take the blame for people like Courtney Love, David Axelrod, Al Franken, the obnoxious half of Geraldo Rivera, and Bernie Sanders!
For heaven’s sake Ms. Johnson, please get rid of the Goldberg!!
Come on Whoopi, why pick on the poor Jews? Try one of these names on for size:
- Whoopi Rochmanyanoff
- Whoopi Chin
- Whoopi Singh
- Whoopi McSchtuppie (that goes with your cry for sex)
- Whoopi Obama
- Joe Biden (that name already has a reputation for saying stupid things)
Hey I got an Idea! Why don’t you change your name to Whoopi Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei? It fits nicely; they could even call you Supreme Leader like they do with Khamenei in Iran. Heck, you make that name change President Obama will bow down to you and give you anything you want. Wouldn’t that be cool? Give it a try! Or try anything else! But lose the Goldberg.
Haven’t the Jews suffered enough?
