NRATV Host Responds to Liberal Author 'Confused' About Black Man in BMW Who Supports NRA
Colion Noir invites HuffPost contributor on his show.
NRATV host Colion Noir hit back at a HuffPost contributor who wrote on Twitter that she was "confused" about seeing an "affluent black man driving a BMW" with pro-NRA and Tea Party bumper stickers.
“Out on the road the other day I saw an affluent black man driving a BMW with two bumper-stickers. One was pro-NRA and the other one was a Tea Party sticker that read, ‘Don't tread on me.’ This left me very confused.” Kimberley Johnson wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
The tweet drew immediate outrage and Johnson later accused critics of "putting words in [her] mouth" and argued that she was intending to make a point about what motivates people to vote for certain candidates.
I deleted it because people were putting words in my mouth and changing my original intent. FOR THE RECORD: I do not believe everyone should vote the way I do. However, I am free to wonder what motivates people to vote.

Noir, who debated gun rights with Bill Maher a few weeks ago, said he was offended at first by the tweet, but now sees it as an opportunity to have a conversation on his show with Johnson.
"She was absolutely clear. It was pretty evident that she made an assumption about a black man in a BMW based on bumper stickers he had on his car," he said on "Fox & Friends."
Noir said he views his recent conversation with Maher as an example of two people with opposite views on an issue listening to one another and finding a middle ground.
"Hopefully we can continue that with her coming on my show," he said.
