JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): Black Americans and white Americans are thriving in Florida economically and there's a lot of great sun.


WATTERS: Brown, whatever you want to call them, Geraldo. You can get paid more in the state of Florida. You have more freedom in the state of Florida. And if people are leaving for the state of Florida, they're going to get rich and everybody knows that. So the question is "Why does the NAACP not want Black Americans to thrive economically in Florida?" That's the question because that's the one state where they are thriving and it's the number one small business minority-owned situation in the entire country. So why is that? They don't want them to thrive economically. They want them to be scared.
