Wendy Williams Says The NAACP & HBCUs Are Offensive To Whites

Wendy Williams is getting dragged through the streets of social media over remarks she made while discussing the ridiculous petition to get Jesse Williams fired from “Grey’s Anatomy.”

The talk show host basically said Jesse’s speech was okay for a BET audience, but not for the masses. She went on to say if she were white she would be offended by the NAACP and Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

I must say to you he was on BET and his speech was very poignant, on one hand.

On the other hand, you know, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a Historically White College.

We have Historically Black Colleges. What if there was a National Organization For White People Only? There’s the NAACP.

By the way, what is the ‘C?’ Colored? We’re still using “colored?”

When her audience went radio silent on her (probably in disbelief of what she was allowing to fall out of her mouth), she tried to clean it up.

Racism sucks and we can all do better in our own households. Educating ourselves and teaching our children to make it better.

National speeches like this will always rub people the wrong way.
