Tucker Takes on Writer of NYT Op-Ed Titled 'Can My Children Be Friends With White People?'
Tucker Carlson challenged a professor who wrote an op-ed in the New York Times that asked "Can My Children Be Friends With White People?".
"I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people," wrote Ekow Yankah, professor at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University. "History has provided little reason for people of color to trust white people in this way."
"You should never generalize about people on the basis of their skin color because it reduces them to the sum total of their skin color," Tucker responded.
"That's the definition of racism, and you're engaging in it in this piece," he said.
Carlson said Yankah used Trump voters as an example of a bloc of "white people."
"Not that white people are unavailable for friendship, but in this world it is up to our white friends and allies to be sure to stand up for those that are under attack," Yankah explained.
Carlson responded that Yankah was generalizing an entire race of people based on a few he took issue with.
He later dismissed Yankah's comparison of a parent of daughters' distrust of young men with a black parent's distrust of white people.
