Wendy Williams continues to make inflammatory and racist remarks on her TV show.
The most recent, according to People, happened on Wednesday's show, January 25, 2017. Wendy Williams was discussing Michael Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson being featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, and that Paris considered herself black.
Wendy Williams then said that she accepts Paris' identity as a black woman, but that she was only talking about the 'visual.' It was the next comment that crossed the line. Williams said "black is not what you call yourself, it’s what the cops see you when they’ve got steel to your neck on the turnpike. It’s what they see.” Wendy's statement was followed by applause from the crowd.

We're so glad to have Wendy Williams' opinion on what cops see, not that she has ever been a police officer or been in that type of situation. In a July, 2016 episode of The Wendy ]Williams Show, she said that "in 2016, racism is still alive and, well, very much so. I have to say in light of the two police shootings in Baton Rouge and Minnesota, stuff is still going on in 2016, I don't know when it will stop."
In 2014, Williams said on her show that she was "heartbroken" over the shooting of Michael Brown but further said that she wanted her show to be a place where people could forget their problems for an hour. She said that she was heartbroken as "a black woman, mother of a 14-year-old black boy, and American citizen." A DOJ investigation determined that Michael Brown was trying to murder Officer Darrin Wilson at the time he was shot.
Although she is controversial, she has also made statements in the past that she's had to defend. Also in July, 2016, Williams said that she would be really offended if a college referred to itself as a traditionally white college. She said "we have historically black colleges." She continued and said “What if there was a national organization for white people only?”
Williams' remarks on show appear to be based on the foundation of political correctness. However, these latest remarks seem to clarify her position on police. Saying stuff like this will only create more hostility and open further the war on police.
