TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): OK, last question, and now I'm being sincere. I was kind of yanking your chain a little bit. But isn't it time to stop with the racism and the white privilege stuff, attacking people on the base of their skin color? Could we just call a truce and just not talk like that anymore?
QUENTIN JAMES (GUEST): Tucker, sincerely, I wish we could but what we've been seeing under this president is a rise in white domestic terrorism, a rise in white nationalism --
CARLSON: Do you have to attack white people? That's --
JAMES: No, I think it's the opposite actually. I think what we're seeing is that people like Dylan Roof are getting more radicalized right now under our president. [CROSSTALK] And what we want to see is a unifying in this country, and I look forward to that.
CARLSON: I wonder why when you have The View being like, "Even if you're really poor we hate you because of your skin color." You don't think that radicalizes people? Maybe a little bit? I mean honestly?
JAMES: How we message these issues -- you know we need to get more specific and more direct. But --
CARLSON: And stop being so racist. That might help too, I think.
JAMES: We're all looking for a more unified country -- [INAUDIBLE]
CARLSON: Well I am. OK. Well on that point, I agree with you.
