“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin said that her family was “targeted” over the Fourth of July holiday with people yelling the “n-word” at them.
The comments came during a panel discussion Monday about how the co-hosts spent their holiday and week off from the show. Hostin explained that her family had rented a house on the beach in a predominantly black neighborhood, and during the fourth, a group of people ran by their home yelling the racist comment at them.
“We were there celebrating, and some kids — about 20 of them — ran in front of our home and started yelling the n-word at us,” Hostin shared.
She then showed home video of her family asking a group of kids if they knew who the culprits were after realizing the people were “targeting them.”
Prodded by Joy Behar, Hostin said the kids yelled, “This is America, we are patriots, this is our holiday — things like that.”
In a word: Bullshit.
First of all; in this area of near-ubiquitous cell phone cameras, nobody – I mean nobody – evidently whipped out a phone and hit “record” to document what would have objectively been a little group of assholes was doing? Nobody? That strains credulity. Second, there have been just too many “racist incidents” made up out of whole cloth lately, to just take the word of some talking head.
I’m not sure what Ms. Hostin is trying to achieve here. I do know that I ain’t buying it.
Oh, and tune in tomorrow for more horseshit from a journalist; this one we don’t have to doubt, we can show damn well how they are lying.
