During the ABC series, Whoopi and her co-hosts Joy Behar, 80, Alyssa Farah Griffin, 33, Sunny Hostin, 54, and Sara Haines, 45, expressed their opinions about the political right.
Specifically, former President Donald Trump, 76, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, 44.
Sometime during the conversation, the co-anchors’ commentary shifted to the potentiality of Governor Ron being a presidential candidate in 2024, and what that could mean for America.
After Alyssa brought up a point about Governor Ron’s rejection of AP African-American studies being taught in his state’s school system she ended up transitioning the conversation towards Critical Race Theory.
Often referred to as its acronym, CRT.
Once the crew at The View was on the subject CRT, the comedy legend took a moment to give a mini-rant.
“I wish somebody would show me a book. Show me the school book, that everybody is talking about that is teaching CRT,” the 67-year-old began.
When Sunny informed her that the unnamed “book” was taught in colleges, the EGOT-Winner proceeded to explain which exact book she wanted to see.
“I want to see the one that they’re doing with the little kids. I want to see that book. I’m demanding it now, because I’m tired of it,” she continued.
“That book that you think your kids have been learning from is a book about what has happened in our country. And the more you try to avoid things that have already happened, we are going to be facing it again.”
Throughout her entire speech the showrunners played music, urging Whoopi to end her discourse.
As soon as she wrapped her statement the show went immediately to a commercial break.
