SCOTT BOLDEN: I've been brutalized by the police. I've been offended by the police.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): You're wearing thousand dollar cufflinks, don't give me the victim card.
BOLDEN: Doesn't matter. Race is the tie that binds us, economics may separate us but the police have wrongfully stopped me. They've spread me out in front of my Georgetown home.
CARLSON: I actually believe you but you're diverting from --
BOLDEN: But they haven't to you, they haven't to you. So you can't relate to it.
CARLSON: So I can't relate to it, OK. So because I'm white you're saying I have no voice in this conversation.
BOLDEN: You do.
CARLSON: You are fundamentally unreasonable and the position you are taking is an inherently racist one.
BOLDEN: We fundamentally disagree.
CARLSON: Because you are dismissing the position of someone on the basis of his skin color and that is outside the bounds.
BOLDEN: No, I'm dismissing it because of your experience or lack there of.
CARLSON: You know nothing about my experience.
BOLDEN: Have the police ever brutalized you? Wrongfully stopped you? Spread you on the ground?
CARLSON: Spare me, mister million dollar lawyer, this talk.
