What Do You Think Of Whoopi Goldberg?

Sat Oct 13, 2007 9:10 pm

Question's pretty self-explanatory...

...aside from duking it out with Oprah for the title of "world's ugliest woman", what say you types?

Great actress, so so comedian. Very very funny in Jumpin' Jack Flash and Sister Act, very good in The Color Purple.

I don't mind watching her work... anything outside of that, I wouldn't really know about.

I don't like her political leanings. Despite her being a huge liberal, she has stepped out and defended Sean Hannity for his right to say what he believes, and just last week, she asked for Al Sharpton to apologize to all those falsely accused in the Duke rape case, which, of course, surprise surprise, he hasn't done yet.

She is refreshingly honest when it comes to being someone who calls it like it should be.

She gets a big thumbs up from me for being an honest person. Thats something you rarely see in the Hollywood types.

And not only that, she has put "The View" back into at least the respectable level of daytime TV, if there is such a thing.

I love her.

Anything movie wise I see has Whoopie in her I immediatly buy or at least rent.

She has been hysterical in already mentioned movies, such as Sister Act. I loved her performance in Ghost, as touching as the scenes were, she was phenominal in the comedy performances in Ghost.

Also, How Stella got her groove back was just as good, and she has some funny moments there as well.

I fully agree and think you put it quite nicely...I like that she isn't as rude/crude as Rosie was...I watch the View as background noise while working on PC, and she's made me chuckle a few times, which Rosie never did...When Rosie had her own show, she wasn't as political and offensive...

I don't care about her political views, there not for me to judge. Those are her opinions and free to them. Aside from that, I've always liked her. She always has a smile on her face. "I'm your prototype...", did anyone see her when she said that? I don't know what show she was on, but she was crackin' jokes left and right.

Overall I still consider her one of my favorite celebs (as much as I have any). Her early comedic work was nothing short of brilliant, and like others have said, some of her movies are classics that I still watch over and over. Like all celebs, I could care less what she believes or espouses, I make up my own mind. I do appreciate that she's always been fairly true to her own beliefs, no matter how unpopular they may be (Didn't know about the Al Sharpton/Duke thing, good on her).

I really like Whoppi. She seems to think things out before she opens her mouth. You don't often hear of her saying stupid things. Very intelligent.
As others have said, I think she looks at life as it really is, rather than what people want you to believe.

Hmmm..you sound a lot like Danny Glover as her husband 'Albert' in the Color Purple talking about both women in the film.


Perhaps, you need to catch a few Sanford & Son reruns and be reminded of 'Aunt Esther' or look behind animated Lisa Simpson (Simpsons) at Yeardly Smith, or ... well I would toss in Joan Plowright, but I have way too much respect for actress Plowright to involve her. I think your slam on both women, CB as "world's ugliest woman" is clearly a personal disdain for these women (or more?) .. when it wouldn't take much effort at ll.. to find far more 'qualifying candidates'...

Come now - you get my drift. No, I'm not racist... but if I say anything against her (or against any blacks, for the matter), I will be labeled one.


Ok, maybe not here (rougher group than most forums) - but that has happened on some forums (non aviation forums) that I've been on. I actually got banned from one, for suggesting blacks are actually more racist than whites. Why did I say that?

How many "white history months" do we have?

How many "The National Association of White Journalists" groups do we have?

Whites are called whites... blacks throw a fit when called "blacks" sometimes. They want to be called African Americans. Oh, but wait, some don't want to be called that either. How am I supposed to remember what person wants to be called what?

Well, call me European-American then, please! And if you don't, "go to hell, you racist".

On The View Whoppi stated that she did not like the term "African American". She said "I'm and American!, and if you put something before that (like African) you are just making yourself less of an American. And that's not how I feel."

By the way, she likes White Boys too.

Why is there a Black History Month, yet not a White History Month?

Did ever occur to you that such things as a Black History Month may be useful or necessary because Eurocentric values, and people of European descent, dominate and control -- to the point of virtual monopolization and exclusion of others -- EVERY major institution and power structure in the United States of America?

There is no need for a National Association of White Journalists because Whites have a virtual monopoly on media distribution (especially mass media) -- virtually all major media outlets are owned and controlled by Whites. And every month is White History Month in America's schools -- but for Black History month, there is a near-perfect exclusion of the history, struggles, and progress of nonwhites in America's history textbooks.

Oh, I would beg to differ, at least from this area I'm from. But, I am from the south, so it may be a lot different than how it is where you are. (for instance, it is more common for the local news anchors to be black than it is white. NOTHING is wrong with that, NOTHING. It just doesn't fit what you guys are saying.)

But I better not say anything else, because I'd derail the thread more. Maybe when I get back home from work, I'll sit down, do some research, then start a thread on this issue. I won't reply here any more.
