Tucker Guest: ‘People of Color’ Is a ‘Racist Term’ Because ‘Having Dark Skin’ Gives You ‘Special Virtue’
Moments after the crowd at President Trump’s Wednesday night rally chanted “Send Her Back!” at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a guest on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight expressed the view that using the term “people of color” is racist because it gives people with dark skin “special virtue.”
“It is a racist term because the idea is that somehow you are trapped by your skin color,” he continued. “That having dark skin imbues you with a special virtue, and having white skin imbues you with a special evil, or a liability, and that is a racist idea.”
Kimball went on to call for the media to stand up against the use of the term because, in his view, it is being “used as a bludgeon to criminalize policy differences and criminalize differences of opinion.”
