TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): To say that white people, white culture exploits in an unusually aggressive way, the labor of others, that's an attack. And by the way, is it true? Is white culture more likely to do that, than, I don't know, Chinese culture?
I don't know, but I know racism, textbook definition when I see it, and that's lumping a group of people together on the basis of their appearance and immutable characteristics and attacking them. That's what this is.
CARLSON: Are you comfortable making generalizations about other racial and ethnic groups that are negative? Any generalizations? Go ahead and try one. You just said that white privilege is real -- no, no, I'm serious. If we are going to have a -- the honest conversation that you are calling for, then I call on you to be honest and make a negative generalization about any other racial or ethnic group in this country. Go ahead, you got the floor.
CARLSON: You don't need to think anything, I'm asking you will you make a negative generalization about another racial or ethnic group?
