Monumental! …Two (2) AFRICAN AMERICAN FEMALE…not 1 but 2 black female co-hosting The View…Sherry Shephard and Whoopi Goldberg. To have not one (1) but two (2) African-American female co-host on ABC at one time…IS ENORMOUS!…and deserves supporting from black radio and media (ie. Michael Baisden, Steve Harvey).
For many years African-American women have fault and struggled to get in positions where they can be heard and seen as intelligent individuals not just strong. I just hope that both Whoopi Goldberg and Sherry Shephard continue to prove that African-American women are steady, intelligent and poised, more than the mere negative stereotypes which has haunted our culture for so many years.
