Behar waded into the day's hot-button issues on "The View" but no mention was made during Friday's live show about her own photo in which she darkened her skin and dressed up as an African woman many years ago. The 76-year-old led discussions of Jeff Bezos, Cardi B, and Frank Robinson, though neither she nor her four other panelists brought up a 1970s-era photo of Behar at a Halloween party with darkened skin dressed as a "beautiful African woman."
