“Let’s be truthful — the Holocaust isn’t about race,” Goldberg said on the talk show on Monday. “It’s not. It’s about man’s inhumanity to man; that’s what it’s about. These are two groups of white people.”

CNN reports that ABC News has suspended the talk show’s co-host for two weeks following her comments, as well as her subsequent apology.
