Whoopi steps in it

I didn't watch the show, however I did get to hear her comments on the Michael Vick issue and to try to lay blame at his heritage and where he was born and raised is sheer looniacy.
Try using that excuse for an extreme southern white redneck type with a confederate flag attached to the back window of the pick-up truck with a gun rack and you would be laughed off the national stage.

NEW YORK -- Whoopi Goldberg started her stint on ABC's "The View" Tuesday by coming to the defense of convicted felon Michael Vick. Just 15 minutes into the show she brought up Vick's conviction on dogfighting charges.

"You know from his background this is not an unusual thing for where he comes from," said Goldberg. "There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of our country."

Co-host Joy Behar seemed shocked at Goldberg's statements. "How about dog torture and dog murdering," Behar asked.

"Unfortunately it's part of the thing," Goldberg replied. "You're a dog lover. For a lot of people dogs are sport," she added.

Behar continued to shake her head in disgust.

Michael Vick was raised in Newport News, VA which just also happens to be home to Mike Tomlin and some very other notable famous people like Ella Fitzgerald, quarterback Aaron Brooks, basketball thug Allen Iverson, Pearl Bailey and other notables.
I wonder if you ask Aaron Brooks, thug Iverson or even Mr. Tomlin if they took part in dog fighting rings because of being raised in Newport News, VA if the answer would follow Whoopie's logic. I doubt this to be the case.

Whoopie you bring new meaning to the word IDIOT
