Fox News host Harris Faulkner unleashed on a white liberal activist on Thursday for trying to explain to her the importance of racism.
Harris, of course, is African-American. So one can see the irony here.
During a segment on the Faulkner Report, the host had something to say when California Democrat surrogate Laura Fink asserted Critical Race Theory is nothing more than teaching schoolchildren about slavery and racism in the United States.

FAULKNER: “Wouldn’t that be great? No matter who said it, right, Laura? Laura, you know, I’m curious, if — if you can speak to this because you — you see almost like a redefining by Democrats now with CRT. What does the critical race theory mean to you?”
FINK: “Well, let me tell you, just frame it a little bit, because what do you do when the economy is roaring like your Uncle Steve at a Jimmy Buffett concert when Biden is popular and Americans are back in classrooms and ballparks and on the job? You create a wedge issue. And this is historically what the right has done. And so this is being mobilized because they want to divide people on the basis of race. And what is critical race theory? It’s acknowledging our history, not just slavery, which of course, we’re acknowledging today. But it’s also —“
FAULKNER: “Aren’t we already doing that in our schools though?”
FINK: “But it’s also —“ [crosstalk]
FAULKNER: “Do you think my black kids don’t know the history? And they — they go to public school —“
FINK: “Well, I think we got to teach redline —“
FAULKNER: “— all of them.”
FINK: “— redlining. We’ve got to teach about the — the Tulsa race massacre. We’ve got to teach about how our health systems has — have different impacts. We have to talk about the lack of generational wealth —“
FAULKNER: “And when should that start?”
FINK: “— and what caused that. But —“ [crosstalk]
FAULKNER: “And when should that start? Because I —“
FINK: “Ultimately —“
FAULKNER: “— I’m having conversations with — with parents who’re upset because they are not being consulted as these conversations — you know, it’s not like having ‘the sex talk.’ Right? We — we do get a little note home on that. But we aren’t getting the CRT note? And so when should this start? What does it look like? Just tell us what the rules are?”
FINK: “Well, I think that — that school districts and local control are defining those rules and having those conversations. But to attack it whole cloth is really without nuance —“
FAULKNER: “All right.”
FINK: “— and it has a political motivation.”
SCHLAPP: “I’d like to —“
FINK: “And here is what I would say. Working class white people —“
SCHLAPP: “I’d like to respond.”
FINK: “— like the family I grew up in, we should not fall for it, because it distracts from the American Jobs Plan, getting infrastructure done, and uniting internationally against foes like China and Russia. So I agree with Senator Tim Scott on that.”
Last month, the founder of a Black Lives Matter chapter in St. Paul, Minnesota, made similar comments against pushing racism against white people.
Rashard Turner revealed in an explosive video that he “resigned” after “I learned the ugly truth” about the group and how they operate.
The video was published by TakeCharge, a black-led organization that rejects critical race theory and leftist “woke” culture.
In the video, Turner says:
I was born in Minneapolis in 1985. We called the north side home at that time, 18th and Queen. When I was two years old, my father was shot and killed. My mother wasn’t able to take care of me. So I was raised by my grandparents. They told me that if I was going to change my life for the better, education was the answer.
So I worked hard in school, I got into Hamlin University and earned a college degree, first in my family. Then I went on to earn a master’s in education from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. I am living proof that no matter your start life, quality education is a pathway to success. I want the same success for our children in our communities. That’s why in 2015, I was a founder of Black Lives Matter in St. Paul.
I believed the organization stood for exactly what the name implies, black lives do matter.
In the video, he adds:
However, after a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis. That was made clear when they publicly denounced charter schools alongside the teachers union. I was an insider in Black Lives Matter.
And I learned the ugly truth. The moratorium on charter schools does not support rebuilding the black family. But it does create barriers to a better education for black children.
“I resigned from Black Lives Matter after a year and a half. But I didn’t quit working to improve black lives and access to a great education,” he concluded.
