Juan Williams all but told Sean Hannity that he was deliberately race baiting Thursday night (4/12/12) when Hannity yet again fixated on comments that the black fringe group, the New Black Panther Party, has made regarding the Trayvon Martin shooting. Williams said, “To me, the attention you’re giving this group is playing to a stereotype. This is like a minstrel show about ignorant, angry, threatening black people.”
The segment began with Hannity playing another clip from the NBPP and then making a show of concern about the “incendiary rhetoric.” As if Hannity hasn’t made an entire career out of his own incendiary, often racialized rhetoric.
He then used his “concern” as an excuse to paint Attorney General Eric Holder as somehow soft on black crime.
Williams told Hannity, “I find this sort of like a comic book that I’m locked in. That New Black Panther Party, they are infinitesimally small. They’re not worthy of your attention. The only reason they exist is to get in front of a TV camera, even the real Black Panthers want no part of them.”
