Charley Pride Has Enough Of Whoopi’s Race-Baiting
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.
Someone asked me why I went to a BLACK CHURCH and I said I don’t they come to my church which belongs to Jesus. I have no choice who He fills with the spirit for you cant join by shaking the preacher’s hand or giving him money. No fan of Goldberg.
Charlie prde is one of the greats . And he will be remembered .
Mr pride,you have it exactly right.BECAUSE COLOR OF SKIN WAS THE TOPIC OF WHOOPI’S SHOW, Please accept this from a 62 year old Irishman living in the UK who is white and first heard your music 45 years ago and fell in love with your voice and your music. Not knowing whether you were black,green,or even a martian.Sir Thank You.Mike
Charlie Pride, you are the best!
Charley Pride is a very intelligent & talented man. I’ve always been a fan but more than ever now. God Bless him for having the courage to speak his mind. Whooping could have intimidated a lesser man.
My Ex wife’s Grandmother said that she and her husband went to see Charlie in Beaumont Texas when he first started getting play on the radio. She said that no one had any idea he was black. The place was packed with East Texas redneck white country music fans when he walked out onto the stage. She said every person in the place seemed to be in shock for about 15 seconds. After that, they all sat back down and enjoyed the show. Not one person walked out, and at the end of the evening he got a standing ovation. I have never met any country music fan that had anything but greatest respect for Charlie Pride. I have none for Whoopi or any other race baiter who stirs up racial tensions just to make themselves more popular with their base audience.
My cousin once again tells the truth
Yes he did.A true honest man.No a Star in every sense.Regards from Mike in england
Spoken like a true gentleman, I love his music.
Charlie was right-on correct and Whoopie was completely off base as usual.
Good for you . I quit watching the View a year ago when all they do is is criticize everything; and racist this and racist that. It’s a downer! I used to admire Whoopi and Joy but not anymore.
