LOU DOBBS (HOST): Looking at Black Lives Matter demonstrating here. Black Lives Matter is effectively a hate group, and it's discriminatory by its very name.
JUAN WILLIAMS: When it comes to Black Lives Matter, Lou, I think people are trying to say in addition to the idea that white lives and upper income lives matter, poor black lives do matter. That's not a racist statement.
DOBBS: I think that shorthand is not applicable in discussions where we're talking about the worth and the value of life. In this country is -- always celebrated, it's a fundamental value, the value of life. And that means all lives, all Americans. And I wouldn't tolerate something called White Lives Matter.
WILLIAMS: Well no, but whites are the majority.
DOBBS: Well, no, I don't think we are, really.
WILLIAMS: Yeah, you are the majority.
DOBBS: I don't think we are, but the fact of the matter is --
WILLIAMS: I think you are.
DOBBS: Well OK, I'll be glad to be part of the minority or a majority, as long as I am an American.
DOBBS: That should be the attitude of everyone.
