Star Jones on The View: ‘Those Girls Were Hateful’
Star Jones is speaking out about how she was treated during her departure from The View in 2006. “Those girls were hateful,” Jones says of her former co-hosts.

Former Cuban president Fidel Castro charged that American society was marked by “profound racism” and that it was a “pure miracle” that US presidential hopeful Barack Obama has not been assassinated. “Profound racism exists in the United States,” Castro wrote in a commentary that appeared on the website Cubadebate Saturday as he weighed in on the US presidential race ahead of the November 4 election. “Millions of whites cannot reconcile in their minds with the idea that a black man with his wife and children would move into the White House, which is called just like that — White,” he wrote.
