The hosts started the talk by discussing the civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, and his use of the N word talking about Senator Barack Obama.

From there, the discussion went on to talk about when the word can be used without it being offensive.

Hasselbeck stated that the word should not be used by anyone, while co-host Sherri Shepherd disagreed.

Hasselbeck continued her argument stating that the word “perpetuates sterotypes and hate.”

Whoopi Goldberg jumped in when Hassebleck stated that we live in the same world.

Hasselbeck from here got slammed by Goldberg, as she said “We do live in different worlds. You don’t understand.” Barbara Walters added “You’re not listening, you’re just talking.

Hasselbeck ended up breaking down after all of this, in tears on the show.
