Sunny Hostin Says Jill Biden Has “Racist Blind Spots” After Inviting Iowa Basketball Team To White House

The View’s Sunny Hostin suggested that First Lady Jill Biden has “racist blind spots” after inviting Iowa’s women’s basketball team to the White House.

A debate has sparked a considerable question: “Should Iowa State be coming to the White House after their loss against Louisiana State University?”

After hearing Jill’s proposition, Louisiana State University’s MVP Angel Reese initially denied the visit. However, she has changed her mind but pointed out that they wouldn’t be invited if LSU lost.

It’s always been history for the winning champions to visit the White House.

The controversy sparked a conversation on The View, with Whoopi Goldberg defending Jill.

“Maybe she doesn’t know, as her husband knows, that only the winning team gets to go,” Goldberg said.

“Knowing her as I do, I don’t think it’s that she wanted the White kids to come and not the Black kids. I think it was more I’m a teacher, and I’m trying to make nice with everybody. I just want to point out that sometimes people say stuff or do stuff, and people rake them over the coals. But unnecessarily because they did not take the time out to say well, is this an offense, or is this somebody who is ignorant?”

Hostin responded, “I would think that it’s ignorance. It could be somewhat considered unconscious bias. I mean, everyone doesn’t get a trophy.”

“I don’t know that she knew it or not, but it was clearly a blind spot. She’s got a Black vice president to lean on, she spent eight years with the Obamas. I think at this point, there still could be some racial blind spots and unconscious bias. I think this player is saying what a lot of people are thinking, had it been the Black team that lost, perhaps the First Lady would not have said that.”

“It was clean up in aisle six real quick,” Hostin continued. “Press secretary came out and said ‘she did not mean that.”
