CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): Just to be clear, I don't believe Black History Month is worth the kind of full month that it is, at all.
By the way, the way they do it is very BLM-centric and all that. If they were talking about Clarence Thomas and Frederick Douglass, OK, I could probably get along with that. But, let me be very clear, Black History Month is not what they say it is. It has become captured by the BLM agenda of race-based discrimination. I would love to talk about Madam C.J. Walker, the first self-made female millionaire in the United States, but, also, I do not believe in having a whole month, she was Black, dedicated to a race. I just find that really damaging. Self-defeating, it doesn't make any sense to me. I don't like it.
And I'd love your thoughts. Would you guys prefer to have Black month and gay month, or entrepreneur month? I would love to celebrate entrepreneurs of all colors and backgrounds, including Black entrepreneurs. And let me ask you a question. The more we've emphasized Black month in February, has it healed any national racial trauma or only deepened national racial trauma? That's a legitimate question. I don't know.
Somebody says, Charlie, entrepreneur month, it exists, it's in November, I watch the show Shark Tank all the time and that's how I know about it. OK, I stand corrected. I guess there is entrepreneur month, OK, does that get the same focus as pride month and Black month? No, that's a legitimate question. I've never heard about it.
And, I also want to make sure my position is clear on this, because I'm sure Media Matters and all the these people are there. I would love – I want to live in America where we don't talk about race all the time. Focusing on the premise that race matters, which is what Black month does, and I don't think race matters at all, I think actually only deepens any sort of racial wounds and creates more bigotry.
