JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): He's still going to be embraced to a large extent by Black America and there will always be people inviting OJ for rounds of golf, always buying OJ drinks, always comping him dinner. So, will he be rolling in it? No, but will OJ survive, absolutely.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE (CO-HOST): OK, Juan get your thoughts on it.

JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): Well first let me just respond to Jesse on this Black folks are going to love OJ Simpson, I don't see it.

WATTERS: We will see Juan, we will see.

WILLIAMS: Hold on let me finish! I just think that what you have to do if you go back to the case is realize we are talking about it everyday these days with Black Lives Matter, angry at police and questions about whether or not in fact he was handled fairly, that's a separate issue. But I got to tell you something, I don't hear people in the most radical communities saying anything positive about OJ Simpson.
