“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said the “Holocaust isn’t about race.”

During a panel discussion on the ABC talk show Monday, the co-hosts were discussing how a Tennessee school “pulled the graphic novel ‘Maus’ out of their lessons on the Holocaust because it contains some nudity and some bad language.” As previously reported, the school did not ban the book, but instead conservatives voted to remove the book from the curriculum for eighth graders.

“It’s about the Holocaust,” Whoopi Goldberg shared. “The killing of 6 million people, but that didn’t bother you? But the naked —.” (RELATED: ‘A Nation Of Golden Retrievers’: Joy Behar Mocks Americans Who Didn’t Want Vaccine Until Free Donuts Were Involved)


“Well, also if we’re going to do this, let’s be truthful about it because the Holocaust isn’t about race,” she added. “No. It’s not about race.” (RELATED: Authorities Arrest Man Who Allegedly Sold Gun To Suspect In Texas Synagogue Hostage Situation)

Co-host Joy Behar interjected and said, “well they consider Jews a different race.” (RELATED: ‘The View’ Silences Lisa Ling After She Tries To Criticize Biden For Calling Doocy A ‘Son Of A B*tch’)

“It’s not about race… it’s not about race,” Goldberg insisted. “It’s about man’s inhumanity to man. That’s what it’s about.”

“But it’s about white supremacy,” co-host Ana Navarro added.

“But these are two white groups of people,” Goldberg replied. “How do we…”

“They don’t see them as white though,” co-host Sarah Haines shared.

Goldberg told her co-host they were “missing the point” because the “minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley.” She said what it was about was “how people treat each other.”

“It’s a problem,” she added. “It doesn’t matter if you are black or white because black, White, Jews, Italians, everybody eats each other. So is it — if you are uncomfortable if you hear about ‘Maus,’ should you be worried — should your child say, ‘oh my god, I wonder if that’s me?’ No. That’s not what they’re going to say. They’re going to say, no, I don’t want to be like that.”

“Well hopefully,” Behar interjected.

Navarro then said we were “living in an era where people are comparing vaccine cards to the yellow stars,” and where people are comparing “vaccinations to what Anne Frank” went through.
