Watching Royal Wedding, 'The View' Idiot Asks 'Where Are All the Black People?'

It just doesn't get any dumber than this.
The ABC network even found their own all-American William and Kate to marry on air. However, the presenters on the American morning talk show The View marred the celebrations with controversial comments.

Comedian Joy Behar said the Queen had dressed like a 'bumble bee' while comedian Sherri Shepherd asked 'where are all the black people?'
More here.
The star said she had earlier searched through the footage of guests at Westminster Abbey.

'Audrey Jones our producer was looking for the black people in the wedding and we found our Rosa Parks moment, because we were like 'where are the black people'?' she said.

'It was like where's Waldo, where are the black people?' she added.
Does she realize there isn't any black royalty in England?

One enterprising blogger did find a famous black person there.

Thanks so much for the linky! Usually Lady M get's all the attention she needs from the lapdogs in the MSM.  Butt for some reason, nothing in the NYT, WaPo or even at Mrs. O on this big event. If I didn't know better I'd think they were racists.

I am sure there were plenty of "black" people in the crowds. England is integrated you know.

Maybe the Brits should look into some kind of "affirmative action" royalty.

Perhaps the reason she couldn't see any black people in the royal wedding is because she didn't look for a black person with a sword riding a horse. 

Denton John, whose family moved from Grenada to New York when he was a kid, went back to Grenada as an adult and joined the British Army.  He earned an appointment to the Royal Household Guards, and was the only American - and probably the only black man - in the wedding procession.

**Brixton is a district of South London where 24% of the population is African-Caribbean and accounts for over 70% of the city's crime.

I don't know what The View harridans were watching, but I saw some of the highlights (it was nonstop and unavoidable for two days), and there were black people in the crowd.  Pretty happy, too, judging by the smiles and flag waving.

nice job Sherri. When you make Joy Behar look sentient, you're really an idiot

Sort of like looking for the intelligent people on The View.

Of course, it could just be narcissism, concealed behind a pretended concern for group identity.  Can't rule that out with this crew.

Remind me to count all the white faces at the next BET event...

The modern left measures every event on a single metric: the portion of the crowd that is Not White. The nigher this measure, the better.

Yes, it's nonsensical. It's racist, in fact. But it's all they know, and it's easier than thinking.
