Hmmm: But Didn’t Whoopi Goldberg Say . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
. . . That dogfighting is part of the Southern Culture? (She said it in September on “The View,” in defending Michael Vick’s torture murder of at least nine dogs.)
Of course, we knew she was lying or grasping at straws (take your pick). I know a lot of Southerners, and none of them engage in dogfighting, cultural or otherwise. And last time I checked, Detroit was not in the South:

Detroit: Seven men agree to fines on dogfight charges


Hey Whoopi: It’s NOT a “Southern Thing”

Six of eight men charged with attending a dogfight in Inkster this year pleaded no contest Friday, and a seventh pleaded guilty. They agreed to fines that will net the Michigan Humane Society $25,000 and Inkster animal control $10,000. Halbert Rogers, his brother Marlon Rogers, William Barker, Kendric Gray, Jamie Williams and Shaun Woods pleaded no contest in Wayne County Circuit Court. Derrick Hall pleaded guilty. Jessie McDaniel will have a jury trial Dec. 13.

It’s not a Southern thing. It’s a hip-hop, urban thing. Nice try, Whoopi.

Whoopi must have placed a few bucks on a dog fight while she was down here making The Color Purple with Doprah and “Red” Danny. Wouldn’t surprise me.

Umm, more whites than blacks are involved in dogfighting, so try again muthafuckas

Whoopi should have stuck to Star Trek Next Generation- at least there the script could be relied on to make her look omniscient…
