Fox News hosts complain about how hard it is to be white
Thursday, Fox News hosts complained on an episode of The Five that the Black Lives Matter movement was excluding white people and that the discussion of race relations that followed the movement had put white people into an “impossible situation.”
“It is uncomfortable,” guest host Melissa Francis, who claimed that she no longer felt like she could safely join a discussion on race relations, said. “Sometimes you feel like it’s hard to say anything right.”
“You’ve got to be inclusive,” Kimberly Guilfoyle, who seemed to take offense at the idea that she could not relate to black problems, said. “I think it’s very insulting to say, ‘White people don’t understand.’ What are you talking about? You’re part of the problem then if you’re … speaking and labeling all white people, saying they don’t understand the issue or saying they can’t relate. That’s really not giving people much credit, is it?”
“We’re in an impossible situation,” Brian Kilmeade, who claimed he was tired of being blamed for the past, lamented. “If you come up to us and say there was slavery in this country 220 years ago and white people did it and I hold you responsible, what do you want me, Melissa, Greg and Kimberly to say? Number one, my relatives weren’t even here. My ancestors weren’t even here at the time.”
