Why this petition matters

Started by Angel Douglas

Whoopi told a truth, one folks didn't like but it was not misinformation nor was it racist or rude. She wasn't wrong, the Holocaust was about ethnic and religious hate and extreme need for power-not race.

Now she is being punished for speaking 1 truth about a powerful set of people in this country.

Just because someone (Hitler) decides to classify you as a race doesn't mean you are. And thus Whoopie wasn't wrong. Jews are an ethnic group that's it, connected by their religious views mostly. You have an actual choice to opt-in or out of religion. You can not opt-out of being Black, or Asian.

It WAS about religious hate and one man's perceived need to be superior to another group of people. The main focus was on Jews, an ethnic group of people but not a race of people.

Ethnicity

Ethnicity is a broader term than race. The term is used to categorize groups of people according to their cultural expression and identification.

Commonalities such as racial, national, tribal, religious, linguistic, or cultural origin may be used to describe someone’s ethnicity.

While someone may say their race is “Black,” their ethnicity might be Italian, or someone may say their race is "White," and their ethnicity is Irish.

Let me be clear the Holocaust was a horrific and evil done to many. Fifty years after the end of World War II, few people are aware that Jews were not the only victims of the Nazis. In addition to six million Jews, more than five million non-Jews were murdered under the Nazi regime. Among them were Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, blacks, the physically and mentally disabled, political opponents of the Nazis, including Communists and Social Democrats, dissenting clergy, resistance fighters, prisoners of war, Slavic peoples, and many individuals from the artistic communities whose opinions and works Hitler condemned.   

So again Whoopi statement was CORRECT and she didn't say anything wrong. As a Nation we need more factual truth’s being told versus punishing the truth tellers.
