It seems as though without one Black woman on board to keep them in check, the women of The View don’t know personal space, boundaries or simple codes of behavior.
Apparently R&B star Brandy was on the show, and rumor has it her two appearances as co-host fo the past week were a kind of an on-air interview, as a possible replacement for Star Jones. This may be true, but upon watching, I was appalled at the manner in which Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hasselbeck asked Brandy any and all kind of inappropriate questions. The worst moment was when Barbara asked Brandy if her hair was real, and at the same time, stuck her hand up in Brandy’s hair.
Is she crazy?
The producer must have whispered something in their earpieces, or perhaps they notcied how uncomfortable they were making Brandy (though I doubt they were that self-observant), because they backed off en masse and began to make jokes about how poorly they were behaving towards their guest. Joy Behar, then responded that perhaps that that was why they were dwindling in numbers.
This shit reminds me of being in prep school/college/at work with white people who have not learned that Black people are not dolls, toys, or animals — there to entertain them.
Don’t beleive me? Watch the video:
