Whoopi Goldberg -- Sorry, New York Times

2/16/2011 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Whoopi Goldberg made an odd apology -- on The View -- for putting the New York Times on blast for omitting her from an story about African-American Oscar winners ... but she also took time to throw one last jab.

Whoopi said she was sorry she called the NYT article "shoddy reporting" ... but reiterated she "personally" felt it was wrong that several actors -- including herself -- were not mentioned.

Who really gives a rats ass. Do we really have to be told the color of an actor. Get off it and tell us something we don't know.

It is always good to see white folks speak up when a black has an issue to speak about. I guess white folks have to determine what is and what is not appropriate for black people to talk about. I guess it is their nature to decide what another group of people have the right to say. They have tried this same attitude within other countries and this is why they are hated through out the world. Do you ever learn it is none of your business what other say or think.

She has every right to be upset about being left out. Being an African American WOMAN with an Oscar is an accomplishment. Period. If you are one of the handful, that deserves recognition..and if you're an African American woman with an Oscar and were left out of that conversation (or article) - why wouldn't you say something?? So much Whoopie-bashing in the comments (which is expected on a TMZ comments page), but oh well. She has an Oscar, her name was left out, she reminded them with Oscar in hand. Get'em.

She was wrong from the get go!!!!! She went on a rant about an article she had not read/understood. It was she that prior to all that spewing of attacks, should have done her research or double check, NOT THE NYT. Her winning an Oscar is irrelavant, those who sided with her without checking themselves are just as guilty. To support her outburst on national tv and still after finding out she was wrong say she was justifide for some reason?????? Shows that you should NEVER be on a jury and hold a person's life in your hands.
