Oops, Looks Like Joy Behar Just Called Kamala A 'Token' VP [Video]
After the guilty verdict of Minnesota officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd, the gals at 'The View' took a moment to discuss injustice, as they call it. Joy Behar was particularly outspoken. Likely in deflection after her mistake last Friday where the hose 'misgendered' Bruce (Caitlyn) Jenner.
During her ran, Behar stepped in it again, employing that Kamala Harris and former president Obama were 'token' appointments. It all began when host Whoopi Goldberg asked Behar what she thought about SC-Sen Lindsey Graham saying that 'systematic racism doesn't exist:
Behar began by trashing Graham, " What's really appalling is Lindsey Graham who says there's no systemic racism in this country. I mean, somebody needs to give Lindsey a globe to tell him which country he's living in. Is it possible for somebody to get dumber as they get older? I don't remember him being this bad when he was a younger guy.
"What the heck happened to this guy?" Behar sarcastically questioned right before sticking her foot in her mouth. "I mean, first of all, systemic racism is not about tokenism. It's not about the vice president being black or the president being black. It's about what goes on in the lives of everyday people in this country."
Without missing a beat, Behar continued on. Completely clueless to what she had just implied:
"What we're talking about is redlining and housing discrimination, we're talking about employment discrimination. Remember that study Whoopi they did a couple years ago if you have a name they think is ethnic, they will reject your um interview, won't call you back for a second interview? That is what you call systemic racism. Voter suppression. White privilege needs to be dealt with. These are the things. It has nothing to do with Kamala Harris being the vice president. It's about the guy next door to you who couldn't move into the house because he's black and you live in a so-called white neighborhood. That's what systemic racism is about. And everything that follows from there -- the school system, child care, employment, transportation, everything follows from there. I'm just appalled by Lindsey Graham. I'm appalled."
