On Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Joy Behar pathetically attempted to bait rapper and actor Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson with an absurd racial question. But it didn’t go as she planned.
Behar bizarrely asked the rapper his “thoughts” on “white people calling the police on black people.”
“It’s an epidemic these days,” she said.
The co-host listed off examples of people calling the police on someone over something silly, though Behar made it entirely about race. For example, she noted the NYC woman who went viral for ridiculously calling the cops on a little girl for selling water outside their apartment complex “without a permit.” The girl selling the water happened to be black and the woman who called the cops happened to be white. Of course, there was absolutely no evidence of racial bias or malice, not that this matters to Behar in the slightest.
The rapper didn’t take the bait. “These are specific people’s actions,” he explained. “It wouldn’t matter what color the person is, that person is calling the cops for anything.”
“You think?” asked Behar, disappointment in her voice.
“Yeah,” he answered.
But Behar gave it one more shot. “Well, there seems to be more of it lately,” she desperately said, seemingly suggesting there are more allegedly racially-biased “incidents” in the current time (read: because Trump’s in office).
“Well, it’s being caught because of the cameras,” he logically replied.
A for effort, Behar.
