whoopi goldberg and mel gibson

Mel Gibson has made big news again for a racist rant against African Americans saying to his ex-girlfriend that, and I quote, “If you get raped by a pack of niggers it will be your fault.” With that line he may have angered millions of people. But I ask you is this Mel’s fault alone?

Then this week on The View Whoopi came out and said “I know Mel, and I know he’s not a racist…He may be a bonehead. I can’t sit and say that he’s a racist, having spent time with him in my house with my kids.” I must say this before I go any further if this was a black man who had said such things about a white man or any other race his career would be over. I do not believe this the case for Mel Gibson.

Whoopi just because he was in your home and around your kids doesn’t mean he wasn’t thinking some choice words about you and your family. Now many folks, including my listeners, would say, “Whoopi, he used the N- word, it is clear that he is a racist.”

Now let me make this clear before I go on: I do believe that Mel Gibson and many other Americans have hidden racial tensions against other races but, I ask how much of a role the media plays in that? Let’s look at the statement Mel Gibson made “If you get raped by a pack of niggers it will be your fault.”

As a black man who grew up in the hood in Chicago I must say that I have never seen a pack of black men walking or riding around looking to gang rape a woman. The mere fact that Gibson would make such a statement tells me two very important things. First the influence the media has on us as Americans is so great that even the most affluent amongst us can be conditioned to believe a certain way about another race. Second Mel knows NOTHING about BLACK men.

Let’s look how the media portrays Black men everyday in TV, radio and print. In the movies black men have been reduced to either playing a thug, killer, drug dealer, singer, or any other role that’s has us as a cheater or a good for nothing bum. In fact Denzel Washington had to play a bad guy to win a Oscar although I would argue his role in Malcolm X was more deserving. The news in local cities shows us every night how much of a danger Black men are to the community and on the national news we are good enough to come on as pun dents but not good enough to have are on shows. Oh I forgot you cannot be OWB “opinionated while black” on TV because then you are an angry black man! And on radio in order to be deemed a success you must crack jokes or talk like a sex crazed person.

Now you may be saying Warren this is not always the case and I say don’t you see how we are being conditioned everyday to hate? We hate in this country because of race. We hate each other for religion. We hate each other because of class and education. Now ask yourself where did you learn all this hate? THE MEDIA that’s where.

It’s obvious to me that Mel Gibson has no clue about Black men with the statement that he made. For the record Mel as a black man we love ourselves and we are taught from birth to love and respect women. Most of us are very protective of women due to our relationships with our mothers, sisters, grandmothers and other family members. In our community one of the most disgraceful things you can do is rape a woman.

Now I personally think that Mel is just like many of us in this country. We think we have no racial distinction in us but we do we all do. It’s been planted in us from the first time we followed the media. Mel Gibson just has chosen to say it out loud.
