Sherri Shepherd Doesn't Like Barbara Walters Or 'White People' Using N-Word: [ send to a friend ]
During a discussion about a rock with the word 'Niggerhead' on land belonging to GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry, Sherri Shepherd said she didn't like hearing Barbara Walters or other "white people" using the N-Word.
"It's so hard to know what to say now, so I just used the word, OK?," Goldberg said while discussing the issue.
But when Barbara Walters used it while explaining the story, Sherri Shepherd stepped in to say she didn't like it.
"OK, there's a difference between the way you and Whoopi say it," she explained. "The fact that I said it gives me chills right now. The fact that you say itówe never use that word, and Herman Cain did."
"When I heard you say it, it was fine," she told Goldberg. "But when Barbara heard you say it, I didn't like the way you said it! Because when you say it."
"I'm not sure if it's a semantics thing, but it's something that goes through my body. I probably could never explain the way I feel."
"Forgive me if I didn't say it in exactly the same way," Walters interjected.
"Even if you did you still wouldn't have said it the right way," Shepherd replied. "It's nothing on you, Barbara, it's nothing on you. When you say the word, I don't like it. When white people say it, it brings up feelings in me."
