Thanks -- -- Bill O'Reilly in the unresolved problem segment tonight racism on display.
Actor Jamie -- portrait on Martin T shared at the black entertainment awards couple days ago.
Questions fox has no idea what happened on the night mr.
Morton was killed in -- Nevertheless -- extending his support.
In a very public way now the key question is this if a white actor had -- -- George Zimmerman T shirt would that have been acceptable.
Now Monica Crowley now call.
Calls honest but what.
I probably would not have been acceptable and it probably is a double standard and is -- -- I think because of disparity in this country between the perception that there's a white power structure -- for the minority and I do believe we view.
He's a little differently based on who really runs things -- an adult.
I don't want to put words in your mouth but it's okay for Jamie -- is -- -- -- K by the way in your opinion Jamie Clark I think it's okay for anybody to Wear anything they want and where it's okay -- Jamie Foxx to Wear a T sure yeah.
Sending a message that he supports trade on Martin.
When he doesn't know what happened in the any of us know what exactly -- -- unless we are there so if any humans don't know all right that includes Jamie far you have the free speech right to do whatever you want -- -- get a sense that that's not what we're talking about here.
T do this is okay but if a white actor -- -- would Zimmerman on a T shirt that would not feel like hey I -- yet.
I I think people -- not gonna do it yet you know I would view it differently you would view -- their view it differently because of the way the perception we have in this country.
We have a white power structure are quite the right everything white power we have blacks who are still a minority in this country going to -- Until we have a black president and a black and I call capital.
Mean that we already quality in each country okay and that's why there's a perceptual difference fox we -- View it differently.
Jamie Foxx yeah.
Media news there were not a -- Bradford Jamie -- light.
But if a white actor went out of the T -- like -- it was a -- face on it or a quote that -- I believe George.
His or her career would be destroyed it would be stored on the spot because they would say that person is a -- that person is somebody Jaime Foxx he's not a racist.
Jamie that's the perception I totally -- it's a double standard it's unfair and it's -- tussle but that's where we took home says a double standards is acceptable to him.
Because of the historical.
Put upon the African American community by the white power structure any validity to that.
It is not right that we have this double standard in this country because by his Logitech okay and the first and -- kids you're referring to -- her brother -- -- -- -- -- And I hope that yeah.
I -- quite this logic didn't personally Jimmie -- can go out put out whatever message she wants.
But that same logic and if a white celebrity -- to back not George government and wearing a T shirt he should have the same rights and you will without being judged.
The way Jamie Foxx did I think judge that's still not where we are weaker assume.
That if a white actor did that.
He would get a -- Everybody grew a -- and I because I don't I think quite yet what happened Paula Venus Williams or your sister loss and I'm personalizing this event because it's a very interesting argument.
Morally wrong would you say morally wrong the double standard morally wrong I think it is grotesque and poorly run the photograph I can't get another Jesus is morally wrong.
For you call to support the don't -- stamp it out what's morally wrong -- that we have a society with this imbalance.
The only way to solve the problem is to correct that imbalance by wearing a T shirt and I don't and I don't correct the imbalance by having equality true equality in this country.
-- you don't have.
-- but I'm saying only when we have that well they're not be this -- -- so as long as we have as long.
As we don't have -- on a perfect state of equality.
Then the minority.
That was persecuted in the past can do all kinds of things that the majority I can't where you are still being persecuted there still is a problem in America it is not where historical what I -- how amazing did you all a lot more than nothing negative perception is different depending upon who's wearing what tee -- about it.
Look if you want to achieve you calling -- you're talking about you've got to race these double standards.
But they exist all over the place -- this is reality because part of it's human nature you look at Mel Gibson.
He gave this drunken -- with anti semantic slurs and there his career is destroyed you -- Paula Deen talked to stop -- about that.
-- -- Baldwin gets a pass because he's a white liberal Jamie Foxx gets a pass because he's a black liberal he should not be this way justice is supposed to be -- in America right.
And it is on social justice supposed to be more social justice never blinded that's part of the problem which didn't -- out cool so you are rejecting Colmes.
Is the contention that social injustice in the past justifies what I totally reject I would like to reject the notion that somehow Mel Gibson's career is over about the -- to shame what's happening apology I think -- is unfairly being traded -- -- I actually went.
When she defends what celebrity if they weren't born George Zimmerman to I would defend anybody guess if that's their point of view that you have to write home -- -- -- -- getting a bit I think he would get that horrible -- here.
-- -- -- -- -- Dean dean is getting a horrible -- and he's is that it is a pronoun is it.
Aren't very just say I'm confused but that's -- -- -- -- I don't.
