    I like certain charactreristics in people, and loyalty is one of them. These are not great days to be out there as a friend of Mel Gibson's, but Whoopi said she was, on live tv, and went on to say she doesn't think Mel is a racist. (Maybe he's not; maybe he says such things for the shock value. But I digress.....)

    Ever had a friend fuck up publically and then stood by him or her? I have. T'aint easy; sometimes you get more shit than the fucker-upper. But it is still the right thing to do IMO.

    You go, Whoopi.

    Whoopi is a racist too. No shock that she would stand up for her brother in arms.

    I'm very very fond of her, Mini. Can you back up that claim with a link? I've followed her career fairly closely, and I have never seen any hint of it.

    P.S. See what I mean about the stander-upper getting more shit than the fucker-upper?

    She's had a long history of "hinting" at racism, but her comments regarding Michael Vick proved it to me.

    Also, her comments about "vote for Obama because he is black" didn't strike me as responsible.

    And if disagreeing with you means I am giving you shit, you've got a long, smelly life ahead of you.

    To me, it only means we disagree.

    I'm not sure I agree with her, Mini. The only dog fighting I have ever seen go on took place up north. But I am not getting your drift....so she's not outraged by it? How's that make her a racist?

    I heard the first half of the recording this morning. The man is clearly sick and needs help.

    Listen to what Whoopi has said, Article 15. She doesn't completely excuse Mel's conduct. She merely says she doesn't think he's a racist.

    Whatever your opinion of Mel might be, the thread is about Whoopi. I'd hope my friends would stand by me too, if I were the fucker-upper.

    I am not a Whoopi fan, but did listen to it all, and I agree, she definitely did not excuse his behavior, but said she has had him in her home, around her kids, and she knows he is not a racist.
