‘The View’ Co-Hosts Clash Over Whether America Is a Racist Country

Hanna Panreck, Fox News, February 1, 2024

“The View” co-hosts clashed on Thursday over whether America is a racist country, as co-host Sunny Hostin deemed a “significant portion” of the U.S. to be prejudiced.

The co-hosts discussed GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley’s appearance on Charlamagne Tha God’s “The Breakfast Club” show. Haley argued division in this country started under the Obama administration and said during the media appearance that she doesn’t believe America is a racist country, but rather that there is racism in America.

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said that she doesn’t believe the vast majority of Americans are racist, but argued that there is racism in America.

“Well, we don’t know that,” co-host Joy Behar disagreed. Hostin argued that the FBI director said White supremacy was “the biggest threat to our country today.”

“That still doesn’t mean that’s the vast majority of people. I just don’t believe in my day-to-day life that the people you’re encountering harbor racist viewpoints,” Farah Griffin continued.


“I think that there is a significant portion that are racist and you can’t dismiss my lived experience,” Hostin said, as the audience applauded. Griffin quickly responded and said, “I never would.”

“When I say, there are a lot of racists in this country, I just experienced my son walking down the beach being called the n-word several times in Florida,” Hostin continued. {snip}
