“On today’s show, I said the Holocaust’ is not about race, but about man’s inhumanity to man.’ I should have said it is about both,” Goldberg wrote in a statement shared on her social media. “The Jewish people around the world have always had my support and that will never waiver. I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused.”
“Well, this is white people doing it to white people, so y’all gonna fight amongst yourselves,” Goldberg said.
The co-hosts then discussed the issue of the government trying to erase parts of the nation’s history with race. The critical race theory has been widely discussed and there have been bills introduced to stop the teaching of race issues in schools.
Goldberg responded: “Let’s be truthful about it because [the] Holocaust isn’t about race. It’s not about race. It’s about man’s inhumanity to man… These are two white groups of people. The minute you turn it into race it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s [about] how people treat each other. It doesn’t matter if you’re Black or white, Jews — it’s each other.”
She was immediately called out by Anti-Defamation League, the U.S. Holocaust Museum and several other Jewish organizations.
