Charley Pride Has Enough Of Whoopi’s Race-Baiting, Shuts Her Down On Live TV!
Country music legend Charley Pride appeared on “The View” a couple of weeks ago to promote his new album, titled “Music in My Heart.” He delivered a performance of “Kiss An Angel Good Morning” that would make any country music fan swoon, but during the interview portion, he dropped a truth bomb on the liberal hosts of the daytime talk show which was totally unexpected. Having had enough of Whoopi Goldberg’s race-baiting, Pride decided to shut her down right on live television.
DOOPY Goldberg asked the legendary country music legend what it was like to earn a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award as the only “man of color” in the country music industry?.
“Before I answer that,” replied Pride, “I told my wife I wasn’t going to get long-winded. I’m going to have to condense this down.” He continued, “You just mentioned, ‘of color.’ When I first started in this business, one reporter said,
‘Charley, how does it feel to be the Jackie Robinson of country music?
Charley, how does it feel to be the first Negro country singer? Charley, how does it feel to be the first Afro-American country singer?’”
Pride’s answer was one for the ages. “I said ‘I feel the same way I did when I was colored,’” he replied.
Pride went on to say…
“Sadly, race relations seem to be in worse shape nowadays than they were back when I signed with RCA. Perhaps it has something to do with the entitlement mentality that seems to have swept our nation in recent decades, which has been coupled with an aversion to hard work.
People now use race as an excuse; minorities allege that they are owed something. Back in the day, if you wanted to make it in this world as a black man, you didn’t waste time screaming about reparations and racial inequality, you pulled up your bootstraps and went to work because, at the end of the day, you were only limited by your willingness to put in the effort. If you were willing to put in the work, you could accomplish anything a white man could”.
Charley Pride is proof. He’s sold more records than almost any other country music artist, despite the fact that country music’s fan base is largely white.
This also flies in the face of a stereotype the left has concocted for those who listen to country music as racist rednecks. It appears that’s not the case since it is these white country music fans who have been buying a “colored” man’s records for decades.
