White CNN anchor tries educating black Democrat who voted for President Trump that racism has increased. It doesn't work.


'We're literally slapping the people in the face that went through real racism'

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota isn't shy about venting her left-wing views — particularly her bias against President Donald Trump.

It seemed little changed on Thursday's edition of "New Day," which featured a panel of six Democratic voters. Four of the panelists — two black men and two white men — voted for Trump in 2016.

And among those four voters, both black men still support Trump while both white men said they regret their votes.

'Extremely fearful'

After a black panelist who didn't vote for Trump noted that the black community has become "extremely fearful" because of all the "injustices" around the country under his administration, a black panelist who did vote for Trump — and still supports him — shook his head in frustration.

With that, Camerota asked Darrell Wimbley why he seemed to disagree.

"It just amazes me," he replied. "This is 2019. The race relations, and the way that we perceive, the way we say things are happening in this country — I don't see it happening."

Camerota hit back saying "in terms of statistics there has been an uptick in hate crimes."

"You can say that," Wimbley answered. "I truly don't believe it because I don't see it. I can statistically say anything, but I don't see it."

Camerota then invoked the Anti-Defamation League, saying the organization charts hate crimes — and then Wimbley unloaded.

'Racism is not a microaggression'

"The Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center — to me those are Democratic institutions that will say and manipulate anything," he told Camerota. "Racism is not a microaggression. Racism is something painful and hurtful, and when we take microaggressions and turn it into 'the country is against black people,' we're literally slapping the people in the face that went through real racism."

But Camerota apparently wasn't taking a cue from a man of color who told her what racism is.

"And did you see Charlottesville as a microaggression?" she pressed Wimbley.

Wimbley answered that he saw the Charlottesville, Virginia, riots as "two groups of people that came to fight and do something bad."

Oddly, Camerota seemed to try cornering Wembley by asking, "Good people on both sides you saw?" which is a debunked left-wing talking point claiming Trump called neo-Nazis at the deadly riots "good people." But Wimbley wasn't taking the bait.

"I saw two groups of people that came together and fought," he said with a little more force, "and both of them were equally wrong."

The Los Angeles Times' transcript regarding Charlottesville indicates Trump said, "I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally."

Even CNN's Jake Tapper acknowledged Trump wasn't calling those groups "good."
