Whoopi Goldberg Has Heated Debate On Race With Ann Coulter On 'View'

It didn't take long for Ann Coulter to get under Whoopi Goldberg's skin on 'The View' Thursday.

Coulter, who was there to promote her controversial new book 'Mugged' about race and politics, began: "What I am trying to say is race mongering has been very bad for America, liberals use it to promote causes that nothing to do with blacks and in fact harm blacks."

"And that excellent lead in you just gave, with OJ, I think that was the movement, having lived near New York City in the 70's and 80's, which was the golden era, it was Trayvon Martin and Duke Lacrosse case everyday. With the OJ verdict, white America said that's it, the white guilt bank is shutdown. And that ended up being the best thing that ever happened to black Americans."

"What are you talking about?," asked Goldberg.

Barbara Walters also inquired: "He being aquited was good for whom?"

"Millions of white people watching with the equivalent of in New York, we use the Brooklyn juries who simply would not convict, even guilty black criminals," replied Coulter.

"You know what, hold up Ms. Coulter. Please stop, please stop! If you're going to talk about race, at least, know what you're talking about. At least know what you're talking about," lashed out Goldberg. "Tell me how much you know about being black?"

"This is not a book about black people, this is a book about white liberals," explained the conservative author. "And I do know and this is a fact, once for years, Republican policies on crime and welfare for example were called racist."

"Your facts a just a little shaky," interjected Goldberg. "You're saying that because liberals have abandoned black people now because, what? I don't get it, I don't understand."

When Coulter tried to argue that it was Republicans who fought for the right to vote for blacks, Goldberg said she had enough.

"Wait a minute, you are talking about way back after... everyone was a segregationist darling , everybody was! White people were, they didn't matter whether they were Republican or not."

"Bullshit! Bullshit, I'm sorry! That's bull, that's bull."

Not long after that Walters ended the discussion: "Stop it, can I just say one thing to Ann? No matter what, you sit down here and you got 5 women going bah badda badda, whatever it is, thank you for coming on!"

Elizabeth Hasselbeck was surprisingly quiet during the round table, with merely one line asking if it was racist that Newt Gingrich had called Barack Obama a food stamp president.
